AIBU to be concerned about this (re:DD2 and reasonable noise)??

My DD2 started in Reception last month. She is really enjoying herself so far and I am really pleased.

However, in her class, there is a little girl who has a tube in her neck which is attached to a breathing machine, whihc is quite noisy (no idea why, none of my business I suppose). There are two full time members of staff who work with this child.
My DD2 has consistently complained that the noise from the breathing machine is "annoying" and she "doesn't like it". So far, I have (nicely!) told her to get over it, but I am starting to get concerned about the effect this may have on her education.

WIBU to go to the teacher about this, and ask for some kind of solution? I'm not asking for this little girl to go be educated in a shed far away from other children. I am concerned, however, about the effect of this constant low-level noise on my DD2 who does deserve to be educated too.

First post here, I'm slightly at a loss here, and could do with some MN advice!

Maybe your dd and other kids need the teacher to explain about the machine, with the help of the little girl. Bit like ashow and tell or something?

Matchpoint asked for advice but she was attacked with venom from many, which was not fair. The advice given by ventilatormum was ,however, kindly, helpful and very moving.

good for you coming back OP.

I know you have been blasted out of the water here, and as it is your first post, you are probably wondering what happened.

Firstly, the AIBU topic tends to encourage posters to express opinions strongly, and so I tend not to post in this topic about an issue I want advice with., just stuff I would like to debate.

Second, people are very, very sensitive to the wording of posts. Even if your intention is good, your wording will get you a blasting. It is at times very frustrating, as reasonable doubt doesn't come in to it. But the other side of it is that I have become much more aware of how my words and comments can be interpreted. (in RL as well)

I hope you won't be put off posting again.

So horribly entitled.
Wanting to BREATHE ffs.
What will these horrible disabled children want next?

(oh and it's not wanting an apology for having a healthy child - what a horrible assumption - it's the way the OP was phrased)

Sure talk to the teacher and let her see how unreasonable/selfish you are
