Babies have extremely sensitive ears, particularly refined in the treble and mid-treble range. This allows them to hear the smallest variations in acoustic pressure. The tiniest sound can appear to be gigantic. Lacking a frame of reference, the baby is easily astonished or frightened by sounds more “cultured” ears would find common.
