    Your newborn probably won't notice hun. It might start to affect him/her when a bit older xx

    My lo is not bothered by them, I don't find that general noises don't bother him.

    I am sure yours will be the same, it's very noisy in the womb, that's why babies settle well with white noise etc

    Why would they be a problem? Babies don't notice things like beeps

    When Isobel was a newborn we went out for a walk every day, she'd usually nod off in the pram and the last stretch home was along a narrow busy road. Every day several large noisy trucks rumbled by, and at least a couple of times a week an ambulance/police car etc with sirens blaring. She never got woken up by them.

    ETA: We also have a reversing beep thingy and its never bothered her. I didn't even think about it when I wrote the post lol!

    Our fire alarm went off a few times when Ronan was a newborn and asleep and he didn't even twitch. I don't think you have much to worry about.

    I was alway told if you make it silent when baby sleeps they will wake up at every tiny sound but if you carry on making noise and doing whatever you would have Dow if they were awake they sleep better.
    It's worked for Flynn, a bomb could go of and he wouldn't wake up!

    Don't forget as well he will have been listening to all the noises around you so when he's born it will be a familiar sound anyway.
    When I was pregnant I played a certain song over and over and sang it every day and now when it comes on the radio Flynn goes really still and quiet and listens to it. It seems like he remembers it.
