    Will my niece get tinnitus from a balloon pop?

    She's 3, she was drawing something on the balloon and it popped in her hand which startled her. Worried about her getting permanent tinitus.

    If your not going to bother to explain why you said no then why bother commenting

    Firstly, OP, you're awfully rude.

    Secondly, balloons pop. It's what they do. If this was going to be harmful to people's health, there's no way they'd be freely available to buy.

    Your fears are irrational, and it'd probably be a good idea to work on your anxiety.

    I'm okay with who I am, although I appreciate your concern.

    I've suffered from anxiety for over thirty years, sometimes to the point where I've been completely unable to function. If my anxiety is making me behave irrationally or causing ludicrously faulty thinking, you bet I want somebody to tell me so I can start tuning up my coping strategies.

    How is, no a good answer to someone who suffers with anxiety. Obviously im ignorant to new baby things, want her to be well. Looked on google and it said on the first page,

    Popping balloons with a pin or squeezing one until it popped were nearly as loud. Sounds louder than 85 dB can cause permanent hearing loss, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). ... The noise is louder than the sound of shotguns and rifles, which could mean considering using ear defenders.

    That is not how any of that works...and you are incredibly rude. You don't just get that from a ballon pop.

    Okay, you need to use your logical head here.

    Do you normally see kids wearing ear defenders at birthday parties?

    Is it a common thing at wedding receptions?

    I'm sorry if this upsets you but you need to try and rationalise this.

    Well people should have some knowledge of things before saying no.

    Also the balloon was very close to her, how can you possibly know it didnt cause ringing in her ears
