Protect your baby's hearing
The hearing of babies and toddlers is fragile. This is still in full development during the first years of life. Without thinking about it, you can expose your child to loud noises at a young age, which can even cause permanent hearing damage. Of course you want to avoid those harmful noises as much as possible, but that is not always possible. And then it is very important to protect your child's hearing.
Causes of hearing damage in babies and toddlers
The main causes of hearing damage in young children are environmental sounds and toys. We are exposed to an enormous amount of noise every day. On the street, for example, you hear the honking of cars, crowds, sirens, and so on. But there is often a lot of noise at home too. Think of the radio and television, the vacuum cleaner, kitchen machines and the lawnmower.
The convenience of hearing protection
During the upcoming summer months, there are more and more festivals where you as a family go together. It is of course very nice to take your little one to a carnival, a music festival or a nice local food festival. But during such events there is often also (loud) music. And the hearing is soon exposed to it for a longer period of time. So definitely think about hearing protection for yourself and your kids.
Another convenience of hearing protection is that your baby can sleep undisturbed in noisy situations. When he goes on a trip, for example. Wearing a hearing protector can also be pleasant and calming for children who suffer from overstimulation.
Hearing protection for the little ones
To prevent hearing damage in the little ones, there is the Alpine Muffy Baby. This is suitable for children from about 3 to 36 months and dampens sound up to 23 decibels. It is available in three colors: blue, pink and black.
The Alpine Muffy Baby is easy to adjust to fit any baby or toddler. The soft, elastic headband has Velcro. It has been developed in such a way that it sits firmly and yet does not clamp tightly around the head. The earcups can be removed from the strap. If your child is older than 2 years, you can switch to the Alpine Muffy, available in blue and pink.
