Baby headphones at a hockey game

My daughter is 15 months and loud noises don’t really bother her. I don’t think the hockey game is too loud but I would like to hear other people’s opinion. Do you guys vote yes for her headphones or do you think she will be ok without them?

    She will be ok without them

    I think she’d be fine without but I’d also ask my pediatrician.

    Two of our littles are sensitive to sound, so we use headphones in any loud places like sports events, concerts, etc. Their ears haven’t been dulled like ours have through time - I’d see if she’s willing to wear them.

    Sound can damage your hearing even at a level that isn’t necessarily bothersome. If you already have the ear phones it would seem to make sense to use them. The game itself may not be terribly loud, but the announcements and crowd around you may be.

    I’d say it depends how close your sitting. Are you right next to the players where there gonna be hollering and rooting each other on? Or will you be in the nose bleed section where you can see everything and the speakers are further from you?

    I haven’t taken my babies to any loud events; however, it’s better to be safe than sorry. I was just at a hockey game the other night, and between the buzzers, music and screaming fans, even my ears hurt.

    I would still protect her ears

    I purchased a pair of ear protectors on Amazon that I always take to events but we normally sit in the 200-300 level seats for hockey games. She doesn’t seem to be affected by the sounds at all (and loud noises have scared her in the past), but best to be safe and purchase/bring a pair...having them and not using them is better than sitting through a game worrying and cringe-ing every time a loud noise happens.
