Right from birth, your baby has a very defined sense of hearing. In fact, a newborn’s hearing is almost exactly the same as an adult’s.
However, while they may be able to hear perfectly, babies don’t yet understand what the noises are, or where they come from. This can understandably be really frightening for your little one, leading them to become extremely upset whenever they encounter a loud noise.
So, how should you handle your baby’s fear of loud noises and is it something you need to be worried about?
