Netizens are concerned about the baby’s lack of hearing protection.
Earlier today, we reported on the baby that ended up crawling on stage during NMIXX‘s concert in Seattle, where Kyujin then handed it back to the mother.

Videos of the baby crawling on stage and being handed back to the mother by Kyujin quickly started spreading on social media, where many netizens criticized the choice to bring a baby to a concert, especially being so close to the stage. Not only was there the danger that the baby could have fallen off the stage or gotten otherwise injured, it also didn’t appear to have any sound protection, making people worry about damage to its hearing.
1. Why would you ever bring a baby to a kpop concert
2. WHY DID ANYONE LET A BABY IN
3. Just putting a baby on stage is insane on so many levels and so unsafe why risk your child’s safety like that https://t.co/3IOMbmvyuc

And now, according to accounts by multiple people online, we’ve learned that it sounds like this isn’t the first time this particular baby has been to K-Pop concerts in potentially unsafe situations.
Apparently the baby was also seen at a Stray Kids concert in the second row seating area.

It sounds like the baby might have even been to other K-Pop concerts besides that, according to other fan accounts as well.
we saw her at the skz concert in an elevator and she was telling ppl how the baby had been to other kpop shows! and he was only 6mo at skz so we’re talking literal infant going to these events ,,

With how loud concerts can get, the possibility that this baby has been to multiple events without headphones or other hearing protection has many people worried for its health and safety.
that is so irresponsible… someone should report this that poor baby is going to injure their hearing 🙁

If she continues to not protect this baby’s ears, they might have some serious hearing problems in the future

Hell I was not on floor but had to cover my ears multiple times especially when fans screamed now imagine the baby 😰

Others just think bringing a baby to a concert at all is a poor parenting choice, let alone letting it get close enough to crawl on stage.
she’s luckily that there were no stage effects like fire or smoke when her child crawled on stage..if she’s more concerned about her concert rather than her own CHILD then she’s not fit to be a mother.

Literally why does a 16 year old care more about the kid’s wellbeing than the mom??💀 and what if she accidentally tripped, kicked or dropped him? Than kyujin would be under fire like????!!! A set up for DISASTER

Like thats SO dangerous, the baby getting crushed in the crowd, picking up any illness or most likely getting permanent ear damage. ….

Many people aren’t understanding why the child isn’t being taken care of by a babysitter instead of being brought along to these concerts.
honestly, it’s not that hard to find someone to baby sit for you. friends, family, they can easily watch your kid for you.

They were in America so if this happens again someone just needs to call CPS. I saw that the baby had headphones on and was in a stroller for most of the concert but still. If you can afford front row seats to multiple concerts, you can afford a baby sitter.

Others are accusing the mother of using the baby as a “prop” to get the attention of the K-Pop idols performing.
Using her baby for attention

Are they trying to use their baby for interactions?

We hope that the baby is safe and healthy after being taken to these events, and that hopefully no lasting damage has been done to its hearing or anything else.
