Product Focus: KidCo WhispEars Hearing Protection
For new parents, it seems like everything can be a risk to a baby’s health. In their defense, babies are often quite vulnerable. This can even be said for their hearing. Today, join us as we focus on a very helpful child safety product: KidCo WhispEars Hearing Protection headphones.
Children and Hearing Protection
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), repeat exposure to noises that are too loud has left more than five million American children with some degree of hearing loss. A sound too high can be damaging to an infant or toddler’s hearing.
What is the risk of hearing damage? Well, besides the inability to hear sounds, hearing loss can also affect a child’s ability to develop communication, language, and social skills. Before we take a closer look at today’s product, KidCo WhispEars Hearing Protection, it is important to assess your situation. If you suspect that a child is already suffering from hearing loss, trust your instincts and speak with a medical professional. The earlier the issue is addressed, the better!
Protecting a Little One’s Hearing
As the stats shared above show, protecting a baby's hearing is a bigger concern than many parents realize. Being exposed to excessive loud noises at a young age can severely damage the sensitive new ear of a little one.
The fact is, we are surrounded by loud noises all the time. These can be loud people, but also car alarms, televisions, power tools… you name it. Potential audio hazards are all around our homes. To this end, babies suffer the most. An adult may be mildly annoyed by the sound of a vacuum. Meanwhile, a baby or toddler could suffer serious hearing loss. We’ve written a full blog post about how to protect your baby’s hearing, but let’s take a deeper dive into KidCo WhispEars Hearing Protection.
