What can you do to protect your child's hearing?
Banz® Junior Earmuffs
Many toys can be dangerously loud:
These levels are all way too loud!
For infants, try to limit the toy noise level to 60 dBA and for children limit toy noise to 70 dBA. Avoid toys that have popping or loud impulse noises that can be especially damaging. You can see if the toy lists any data about how loud it is. You can also use a sound level meter app (NIOSH makes a good one) on your phone to measure how loud the toy is and if it is too loud don't buy it or try to return it if you can. When in doubt, opt for a noise free toy.
Your child can choose from a variety of color combinations to personalize their custom-fit earplugs.
(Colors and options vary by manufacture).

Headphones are not a replacement for hearing protection, especially for children. Headphones are not generally designed to be used as hearing protection, so they may not be adequate at keeping loud sounds out. You may also be introducing even more risk if you are playing music, movies, or games through the headphones at volumes that are unsafe. Even if you use headphones with volume limiters, they may not have been designed to keep out loud sounds from the environment. Opt for high quality earmuffs designed specifically to protect your child's hearing from loud sounds.
At Sound Access, we do not advocate the use of noise machines to help your children sleep. In fact, our audiologist has some pretty strong feelings against it, but in general:
With that said, if her best friend is any testament, our audiologist knows that not all parents will be convinced to transition their noise machines to the status of an expensive paperweight, so if you do use them here are some tips:
Keeping our kids happy and healthy is a top priority for parents and there is a seemingly endless list of things caregivers have to worry about when keeping their children safe.
