Just a quick word on issuing a section 45 notice to comply with by-laws (by-law 1, noise) - the notice would usually be issued on the tenant (ie one or both parents), and would say that there has been a breach of by-law 1 with unacceptable noise levels during the night. The order sought would not be to stop the baby crying and the order would not be on the baby.

As to whether or not issuing such an order is appropriate - I'll leave that one to you guys to discuss.

You have to learn to live with a lot of things in units.

My neighbor upstairs has a teething baby and he is a real screamer, his mum is always apologizing for it lately. Poor little mite can't help it and neither can his mum. The chemist sells great ear plugs, I just put them in at night.

You have to give and take.

It is a whole heap better than our previous neighbours up there. Fighting, screaming and swearing were commonplace not to mention beer bottles flying out the window. It took more than a year to get rid of them going through the CTTT.

Compared to that a screaming teething baby is actually not a bother

This is one of those whoever has the best argument scenario, I can personally say anyone trying to get someone issued with a notice because their baby is crying, will not get very far in the favour system and their reputation is bound to go down hill very quickly....

My understandings is that most noise laws are to enforce noise caused by someone not attempting to reduce the noise. Also keep in mind there are 'over reacting' laws, so if someone tries to take one to court for their crying baby, that person can actually become the prosecutor.

I'm sure this baby has grown up by now :), nevertheless what was the outcome?

Out of curosity, does sound travel up? So if you live mid-floor when a baby cries, do both floors hear it?

Unfortunately, newborns have a lung capacity that matches their bowels:) You don't even need to be just the floor above or below to hear them. They seem to resonate throughout the building.

To answer your question - noise does travel up. Our neighbour had a bad time with our television and never told us. We just happened to be up in his apartment one day and I could hear our kids playing their Xbox and it was as if they were in the room. I was so embarrassed. It just didn't seem that loud in our apartment.

I was so upset that he never said anything to us but he said he didn't want to make a fuss because there is not much for little ones to do in an apartment. Such a nice man and we make our kids wear headphones now. Everyone deserves to be able to relax in their own home. You have to adjust to communal living. Definitely your baby would be heard on both floors and not much you can do about that until bubs is a little older.

More often than not I don't make remarks on sites, however I'd like to say this article truly constrained me to do as such. Truly pleasant post! YouTube
