Let me explain the reason for this EMS 4 Bubs Baby Earmuffs Review. This last weekend was the first time we felt comfortable going to church while bringing Little Girl along. It’s obviously not about bringing her to church per se, but worship music can be really loud. The lease on the church we attend was up, so they currently meet at a movie theater until a more permanent location is found. Since this all happened within the last month, we were really unsure what the setup would be like and what the noise and music level would be like as well.

We’ve been to this theater to watch movies before, (it’s actually our second favorite place) so we know how loud it can get during action movies, we were definitely hoping the volume wouldn’t be at 100%. We tested the EMS 4 Bubs Baby Earmuffs at home on our own ears and we could definitely feel the difference. The problem for me was that Little Girl (being one-month old) would never be able to tell me: “Daddy it’s too loud, can we turn it down a bit?”. If she did, that would be more than excellent. We ventured into church (did I mention we were on time!), with her earmuffs on, greeted a few friends who wanted to finally meet Little Girl and when we made it in, we chose an aisle seat just in case.

When the music started playing, she didn’t wake up or even so much as flinched. On two occasions, the earmuffs moved out of place when Little Girl was moving, and as soon as the loving and diligent Polished Momma noticed, she fixed them right up. Each time Little Girl immediately settled. Not a single cry, and that we can definitely consider as a successful outing.

Not that it matters, but these are the same kind of earmuffs that Boomer Phelps was wearing while his very own RIDICULOUS DAD was winning gold medals. If these earmuffs are good enough Michael Phelps’ son, they good enough for Little Girl.

What I like and don’t like about them

First, they fit comfortably on Little Girl’s head, and can easily be adjusted. We got some compliments on them and definitely received no complaints from Little Girl since she never fussed or cried. I got no complaints, except that I couldn’t find a single or a set of bands to match outfits. Never thought I’d say that … !
