Just wanted to share a tip I heard today that made a lot of sense. Don't go to the shooting range if you are pregnant. Your baby could get hearing damage since there's no way to muffle the sound for them.

I had never thought about that before. Thought I'd share.

I think this just falls under the category of "common sense" or "things Americans no longer have".

Well, it's not something that you would automatically think about. I mean, I heard it and it made perfect sense but I might not have thought about that just going about my life.

This would've never crossed my mind since I'm never going to be pregnant nor will anyone I currently know.

Come to think of it, no one I know (that's a woman) owns guns either.

at first I thought this was a subtalk thread though. can you blame me? :lol:

Firstly, isn't it muffled already inside the womb? I got that from a Pampers CD. They don't hear the same way we hear things. In fact, it's constantly noisy in there with all our internal processes, haha. Secondly, if hearing a gun shot fired is dangerous for their hearing, then would watching fireworks have the same effect?

Fireworks aren't nearly as loud as a gunshot, except at range. A large firecracker going off is not as loud as a handgun at the same range
