Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Is percussion bad for the baby?

3 answers
I love to shoot guns and we plan on shooting the cannon on the 4th of july (this is a civil war replica so its big and loud), but my father in law asked if the percussion could cause an issue. Im not worried about the noise only the percussion. Any one ever wondered about this before? I see the dr today so I am going to ask him, but wanted some input. Thanks!

 i don't plan on shooting during my pregnancy, unless i need to kill a home invader. lol.  i'm 9 weeks along, and i'm sure that could probably have an effect on the babies hearing. definitely ask the doctor about that.
The doctor will tell you when the hearing develops.
I read that if it's louder than 90 deci. you shouldn't be there for very long.
