When it comes to all humans, noise is a dangerous hazard that many of us forget. However, hearing loss is one of the most frequent workplace injuries in the U.S. and it takes very little to damage hearing. If you like to play music in your house, watch TV on stereo, or even play instruments, you need to control the volume. OSHA notes that above 90 decibels of sound is dangerous for adult hearing. 90 decibels, is not even that loud. You car stereo can easily get louder than that. Wat most research suggests is that noise you can talk through is fine. If say, you have the TV up so loud you have to shout at someone in the same room, well, turn it down. Following the talking rule makes it easy to figure out if something is too loud for your baby. Plus, just to note, while the talking rule is good, some of us are more sensitive. I've met some babies who seem to like it extra quiet, while some love to hear music at a decent level. If your little one is crying it can be because the noise in the room is too loud for his personal taste.
