    I can't say for sure but I would think that the loud noise might be harmful. Do you have any ear protection that you could put on your LO?
    KBratt responded:
    I can't be totally sure, but I would think it's best to get some ear plugs. There are kid size silacone plugs at Wal-Mart, I think it's $2.50 for a pack of 12 & you can tear them in half to make them even smaller for tiny ears! (We use them on DD since she has tubes in her ears & can't get them wet.)

    thanks so much for your input...i didnt really know how to approach the situation but now that you say ear plugs thats a really good thank you

    What did you end up doing? We went to a dance concert with the kids yesterday and two of the numbers had a really low base. The baby (6months) didn't like it and actually cried a little. So I'd definitely recommend some kind of hear protection.
