: I am a mother of 19 month old twins living in a small two bedroom apt . Does anyone know if there is an ordinance prohibiting babies from crying in the night?I am the mother of 19 month old twins.
: One baby sleeps in the "nursery" with shares a wall with a neighboring apartment and the other baby sleeps in our bedroom with us in a corner of the building bedroom. Our living room is not really one but is my musician husbands "studio" where he practrices guitar (via earphones, no noise ) at night and calls out for his business. My problem is that our baby boy often cries off and on throughout the night (so does the girl but she is in with us) and our neighbors are freaking out !. They say that there is a law prohibiting babies from crying from 11:00pm to 6:00 am? Does anyone know if this is the case? I have sympathy for our neighbors but since we cant afford to leave our tight quarters we dont have a solution that can prevent the crying . We have tried to be nice and do what we can but they are furious with us. If anyone has an ordinance re: this or knows where I can get one please let me know. Any opinions or advice on this would be appreciated as well....Thanks
If somebody told me that there was a law prohibiting babies from crying at certain hours, I would be highly skeptical! There might as well be a law prohibiting the rain from falling on Sundays in August. I would bet that your neighbour is either misled, or s/he is bullying you with a piece of make-believe. Ask your neighbour to cite this "law" for you: I bet s/he has no idea what s/he is talking about.
