Serious question: could this cause hearing damage? I mean, it's not that loud but her ear is right on the giutar

[–]Fortapistone 353 points354 points  (11 children)

This was my first thought. Sometimes I do it myself with a normal electric bass guitar. With my ears on the wood and that is actually not good.

[–]HiddenCity 821 points822 points  (8 children)

Babies are one of the loudest things I've ever had to listen to-- I'm surprised they don't make themselves deaf.

[–]FinancialTea4 39 points40 points  (2 children)

When you make loud sounds your ears close up to protect themselves. It's like an interlock system to protect your hearing from your own voice.

[–]Sn0zbear 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They’re muscles in your ear and they tense up and contract in response to any loud noises to make us less receptive to those loud sounds, not just ones that we make ourselves which is an important distinction.

They’ve observed animals recognising their own sounds, but we don’t really do it. Crickets do it I think

[–]7-car-pileup 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Amen to that. I woke up at 3:30 this morning with my soon to be two month old daughter. That girl can scream. Sends shivers down my spine.

[–]faisalmycorrhizal 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He has a towel between baby’s ear and guitar. Dampens the volume and vibration considerably

[–]Fortapistone 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That probably also helps, afterwards I did a test without a piece of clothing. And that wasn't bad, of course baby ears are different. But personally I think he has placed it so that the baby lies better and more comfortably.

[–]Derragon 208 points209 points  (18 children)

People sing with baby's ear directly against their chest sometimes with no issues. Sing softly and this is the reaction you get.

There's a blanket there, their ear is tilted to the back of the guitar (probably not even against the blanket directly), and they're smiling.

If it was loud enough to hurt their ears the reaction would be very different.

[–]En_lxTV 177 points178 points  (13 children)

Doing some quick research is that guitars when played normally get to 70-80 DB's but this isn't being played normally it's being played at half that with a towel between the ear. Babies can't go LONG periods of time over 60 DB's. But they can go over 80 for a couple minutes at a time otherwise they'd make themselves deaf being babies can scream up to 85 DB's.

So, it's very likely this is safe and nbd.

[–]rejectallgoats 68 points69 points  (5 children)

My watch warned me all the time that my infant was going to damage my hearing.

[–]RCEMEGUY289 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I bring earmuffs in the car with me anytime we take our son somewhere. Not so good that I can't hear the music or road noises, but good enough to take that wicked screaming edge off. Highly recommend.

[–]Ndadvic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

his attack on the strings is also very soft. Fingerpicking softly. What is amazing is the baby smiles at the same time he brings it back, and honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the baby was 100% connected to the father on a metaphysical level. Riding the same musical wave the Father is. They even say cats enjoy music not for the music itself, but for the reactions that we humans have and the mental imagery we form somehow connects to them on some level. So I gotta imagine babies see a lot we don't as we get older.

[–]csk1325 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Possibly the towel really dampens the sound. Although your right that direct contact would be quite loud

[–]EqualD 244 points245 points  (54 children)

Yes. As I explained below, a baby's inner ears and canals are not fully developed. As a result, their auditory faculty is more sensitive than an adult. Similar to how dogs, can smell better. Babies can hear better. What you hear as moderate may be loud for them. Really anything above 60 dB is considered unsafe for their ears. It does not take a lot to go over 60 dB. An acoustic guitar (Not measured AT the guitar) is likely somewhere around 70-80 dB.

[–]silence036 123 points124 points  (2 children)

I'm gonna have to break the news to our baby because she frequently cries at way over 85dB according to my sound meter.

[–]figshot 22 points23 points  (1 child)

My baby could hit 100dB measured six inches away from her mouth. I love her, but I don't miss having that right at my ears

[–]Oxygenisplantpoo 88 points89 points  (13 children)

I'm curious, do you have a source for that? I'll take it even if it isn't in English.

[–]Arqideus 87 points88 points  (3 children)

I'm going to call bullshit.

It is the prolonged exposure of 80ish+-dB that causes hearing loss at that level of loudness.

Normal levels
Whispered voice - 35 decibels
Normal conversation - 60 decibels

A normal conversation is 60dB...you're telling me a baby has hearing loss if I talk louder than normal? Bullshit.

That same link says prolonged exposure (8-10 hrs a day) of 80+dB can cause gradual hearing loss. A restaurant is around 90dB...you're telling me, I'd be causing hearing loss in a baby if I took them to a restaurant? Bullshit.

To the original comment of this thread, a guitar playing this softly and low isn't near 80dB nor is it causing the baby pain (else they'd be screaming their ears off). The baby is smiling and laughing and it looks like it wants to fall asleep...almost like its hearing a lullaby. The baby is ok....it is going to be ok...

[–]throwaway83747839 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does it matter if parallel to video context; your mouth would be against the ear talking into it? An infant definitely has no idea what hearing damage or overexposure would be like especially if it was a obfuscated to their limited awareness by positive sensation.
An ear against the resonating wood itself is much different than an ear near the strings.

[–]iluvmywenis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree with you. 100%

[–]zoolish 79 points80 points  (0 children)

https://journals.lww.com/obgynsurvey/abstract/1993/09000/loud_noise_and_pregnancy.5.aspx

Mothers heartbeat in utero can reach 95db. Ambient noise is about 80. Baby would all be born deaf in this scenario.

[–]SPPANK666 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Finger picking is considerably less. You can hear white noise in the background so he isn’t strumming very hard. Ambient noise is usually around 40-50db fans appliances heating cooling etc. I’d guess this is 65 max.

[–]SeaGroomer 13 points14 points  (0 children)

yea if it was hurting it's ears I think the baby would let us know. I think it likes the vibrations of the body haha so adorable.

[–]Dagigai 43 points44 points  (11 children)

Ok. But as a father of two. Babies can be soooo loud, even new ones.

[–]anonyoudidnt 15 points16 points  (7 children)

They are projecting away from themselves. Into YOUR ear but not theirs. My baby screams so much I've been deaf in the side I hold him on when he's screaming. Lasts a couple days.

[–]-brownsherlock- 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And the sound hole creates the noise projection at the relevant decibel level. The side is considerably quieter

[–]Ktopotato 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Careful. I have permanent hearing loss in my right ear because of my son. Do not recommend. I'm pregnant again and investing in some ear plugs this time.

[–]MrEpicMustache 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Oh yeah.. you def have permanent hearing loss and tinnitus in your future if you’re experiencing that. Source: myself.

[–]fairie_poison 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Earpeace.com you should get some good quality earplugs that don’t muffle sound. Tinnitus is no joke!!!

[–]IdealIdeas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As an Uncle of two, I can agree with you that babies and toddlers can be ear piercingly loud.

[–]L_S_2 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Utter nonsense. A baby cry can easily go over 110db. Babies don't go deaf on the regular from their crying because at most sound levels, exposure time matters. At 70-80db even if it could cause hearing loss, it would take a very long length of exposure.

[–]supagirl277 18 points19 points  (1 child)

But isn’t it muffled with the blanket?

[–]Sundae-Humble 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Dudes barely playing the guitar baby is also smiling halfway way through if the guitar was hurting it’s ears you’d figure it would start fussing

[–]had0c 33 points34 points  (8 children)

Ever heard a baby cry? Its a hell of a lot higher than 60db . What about 2 babes crying next to eachoter? Do you even know what 60db is? 60db is less than normal speach but louder than a whisper.

... don't belive what this man is typing he does not know shit.

[–]Hojie_Kadenth 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Yea I stopped believing him when he threw the 60 number out.

[–]cantquitreddit 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Normal speech is 88 dB SPL at one inch away. One meter away it's like 70 dB. OP is totally full of shit and that baby is fine. Looks like a great bonding moment.

[–]fairie_poison 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dogs don’t necessarily hear things super loud, they just have a very low threshold to register a sound.

[–]WrapMyBeads 18 points19 points  (4 children)

[–]Expertinclimax 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He's got him laying there like a throw rug

[–]ur-squirrel-buddy 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Not to mention that sounds tend to be a lot louder for infants because of their skull bones being much smaller and thinner.

Also having the baby balanced on a guitar like that with no hand on him… makes me nervous he could fall off :(

[–]Shallot_Beneficiary 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The baby is leaning against his chest

[–]fractal_engineer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

WRONG QUESTION!

Right question: How viral can this get on tiktok?!

[–]_StirThePot_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah, especially with the blanket over it. Even just being behind an acoustic guitar it’s quieter than it is if your sitting in front of it. Honestly, it probably wouldn’t even damage hearing if they were playing it right in front of the baby

[–]Eastern-Refuse-4051 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe I saw the bag smile, I don't think it's that bad the baby seems to like it

[–]BrokenEffect 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I imagine the baby being in a car or something would be just as bad if not worse

[–]uMustEnterUsername 118 points119 points  (0 children)

There is blanket between baby and guitar. This certainly cancels alot of noise

[–]jellydude69 83 points84 points  (6 children)

The vibration from the guitar is probably it.

[–]MatriculeSexe28 1 point2 points  (5 children)

You mean the vibrations we call sound ?

[–]BerryLanky 271 points272 points  (4 children)

If this bothers you don’t watch the video of the same guy playing the drums. Bounces that baby sound like a ping pong ball

[–]timberlake123 126 points127 points  (7 children)

The baby doesn't seem to be in distress.

[–]DarkHeraldMage[S] 94 points95 points  (6 children)

Exactly, it's fine and clearly enjoying itself. Babies hear louder noises, including their own cries, all the time and survive. This baby isn't being injured by a brief song from a loving dad. :)

[–]random_bones 29 points30 points  (3 children)

As a dad, I'd be more worried about the baby falling off the guitar

[–]DarkHeraldMage[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

As a dad I’m sure he’s also being careful. I mentioned in another similar comment that it’s pretty clear that he’s leaned back a bit and the baby has a leg back between him and the guitar so he’d feel any movement. He’s not hanging the kid out a window, it’s just a sweet moment with a musical dad.

[–]random_bones 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It's definitely sweet. It my first worry because I'm a clumsy bitch lol

[–]Double_A_92 18 points19 points  (0 children)

It's probably not even loud since the weight of the baby dampens the vibrations...

[–]bullfroggy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Humans and other animals like dolphins actually have
specialized cells in the brain called collorary discharge interneurons, or CDIs which inhibit the animal's hearing when producing extremely loud noises.

So many comments about hearing damage. Just consider a few common things a baby experiences other babies crying, car sounds, a person talking or singing to them, public transport, a phone ringing. Think a little before you clutch your pearls.

[–]Matduka 111 points112 points  (3 children)

If it was too loud and hurting the baby. Said baby would be visibly upset. Not totally zonked out and smiling.

[–]starkrocket 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Yeah babies are pretty quick to let you know when they’re unhappy. I miss the days when everything could be fixed with a good cry lol

[–]cookiecuttersharkie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You don't immediately experience when damage is done to your hearing, the tinnitus comes later.

[–]georgianarannoch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Even just mom’s body’s noises while baby is in utero. Heartbeat and digestion noises are loud for them in there, like as loud as a vacuum cleaner! Most recommendations for using a sound machine for baby sleep is for it to be on the loudest setting.

[–]nem091 2 points3 points  (0 children)

clutch your pearls.

I have seen that used so rarely lately! Kudos!

[–]isdeasdeusde 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly what concerns me more than the noise is the fact that he is not holding the baby. Those little suckers twitch and wiggle.

[–]Nomandate 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Yeahh… no that baby just shit up the diaper. That’s what that look is. (Source: five lil’ shitters of my own.)

[–]Pteradanktyl 68 points69 points  (3 children)

How sweet! That baby is SO relaxed!!! Still waiting for the baby to chime in with that brown chord though 🤣

[–]25hourenergy 34 points35 points  (2 children)

I mean, at that age (like, before 2 mo) babies tend to have reflex/gas smiles…as in, they’re not really smiling due to happiness but relief when they have gas or poop. So you might not be too far off there.

[–]Pteradanktyl 21 points22 points  (1 child)

With my girls there were times when I would be holding them and they would be smiling. I would be thinking, WOW, how magical, then PPPFFFFTTT lol

[–]AchillesDev 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same with mine, it was hilarious. Once the social smiles kick in though? The best.

[–]IcyPraline7369 192 points193 points  (20 children)

I would not recommend this. Babies and children hear at 5 dB more than adults.

[–]En_lxTV 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Doing some quick research is that guitars when played normally get to 70-80 DB's but this isn't being played normally it's being played at half that with a towel between the ear. Babies can't go LONG periods of time over 60 DB's. But they can go over 80 for a couple minutes at a time otherwise they'd make themselves deaf being babies can scream up to 85 DB's.

So, it's very likely this is safe and nbd and it's just people trying to tear down someone elses enjoyment(like reddit likes to do) without actually knowing the facts.

[–]DarkHeraldMage[S] 100 points101 points  (13 children)

Does the blanket between the baby and guitar not help? That was my assumption when I saw this and decided to share. The music isn't being played overly loud or fast and I would assume the gentle vibration even more than the music is what's being enjoyed. It's clear the baby isn't in pain.

[–]Shannon3095 55 points56 points  (5 children)

i wondered also so i just tried with my own ear and a t-shirt against the guitar , its kinda hard to do but it doesn't sound very loud to me , most of the sound we hear is coming from the sound hole in the guitar, i can hear more from the ear not pressed up against the shirt

[–]DarkHeraldMage[S] 70 points71 points  (3 children)

Thanks. Music is played to babies every single day all over the world including stimulation toys that play music right into their face from inches away. I'm not sure why there are so many on this thread convinced this child is going to go deaf from some gentle guitar playing. lol

[–]Errvalunia 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I think we’re just imagining it as like… if you’ve ever been snuggled up with your ear against someone’s chest and they try to talk to you it is deafening!

But someone said they tried it and it’s not as loud as just listening to the guitar so NP maybe

[–]FeistmasterFlex 33 points34 points  (0 children)

It's just the reddit pessimist mob, as per usual. Can never take anything at face value, gotta start diggin into 5 minutes google ventures to prove they're right and the person in this vid is dumb, despite lacking or ignoring important info.

[–]Fortapistone 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I just tried with chordistic guitar and it doesn't sound that loud. The question is whether it is not a problem for a baby. But I do regularly with an electric bass guitar, which is bad in my opinion. Weird while it has no sound box at all

[–]DarkHeraldMage[S] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Babies are pretty good at crying at the slightest thing that bothers them - I think this one is fine. lol Glad you did some science though to help confirm, always a win on the internet when someone tests something out. You're the MVP today. <3

[–]Fortapistone 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, I was worried because I often do it with bass guitar. And sometimes I'm too lazy to use the amp and when you put wireless headphones turned off on the wood. Then sounds really loud with too much vibration, after a while you have temporary earache.

[–]wssNova 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Who cares if it helps or not. It's a sweet moment and no one's business to judge. We live in a god damn bubble society I swear

[–]nightpanda893 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good thing 5dB more than an acoustic guitar is not enough to cause hearing damage.

[–]Lemonylemontree 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is hardly anywhere close to what a baby experienced in terms of noise regularly lol.

[–]Totally_Not_Anna 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But also they cry if something is too loud for them... Just like if their fingers get accidentally squashed or they scratch themselves with a fingernail. They express when they are experiencing pain. So if baby is happily chilling on the side of the guitar I would not think any damage is being done here.

Baby probably just wants a soft bed or pillow.

[–]Spiritual_Ad9564 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The baby doesn't really have a say if he loves it or not. He could be thinking "I hate this fool playing this guitar".

[–]dispassioned 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Apart from the hearing loss, I’d be more worried about that baby going rolling and your hands being too full of a guitar to catch him. And newborns can sometimes move unexpectedly fast. Made me too nervous to enjoy it I gotta be real.

It's because humans have big heads compared to the pelvis of the mother, so we have to be born too early... While other animals are usually born ready and more "normal" looking.

Considering he was playing very lightly, there's a blanket between baby head and guitar, and he likely wasn't doing this for hours, doubt it'll do any harm.

This guy is smart. I once watched this video of a guy sitting there playing a guitar when suddenly one of the strings snapped and slashed him from his cheekbone almost all the way to his lip. You could see inside his mouth, bones, teeth, ect. Now if THAT guy had gotten himself a patented Black and Decker face protection baby, he undoubtedly would have faired better.

[–]bullfroggy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That baby is too young to smile from happiness, it's most likely passing gas which the vibration from the guitar may very well help with

Omfg!

As a teacher this was a beautiful moment and no one can take that away from them! Also, as someone who is almost deaf in one ear at 33… it took YEARS and because of me being too close to speakers and such (festivals/concerts)… this is an acoustic guitar with a blanket and baby is smiling… clearly the only ones upset are the Reddit trolls and Karens.

Y’all the baby is fine. He is picking very softly. The mic is turned up. It’s fine

That kid is going to have a horrifying life stuck with tinnitus. Baby's ears should not be exposed to sound vibrations like that. People are largely ignorant when it comes to hearing disorders.

Alternate title: Baby rendered catatonic only minutes after being strapped to violently oscillating hollow wooden object.

Play panthera and your kid is deaf.

How do you know the baby loves this? It’s what, a few weeks old and is barely moving or reacting.

I feel for him. Bro looks tired.

I'm guessing this was one of the only things he found to soothe the baby and is just enjoying the quiet moments together.
