Currently battling with a noisy club next door - loud music at weekends till 3am. Local council are trying to make them stop but 3months down the line have made no progress.
I'm thinking that our only option is to move...
But wondering if we can wait a little longer.
Baby I think might be a bit disturbed by it.. but hard to tell as he wakes at night anyway.. (6weeks old - was premature so only should be 1week!).
Feel very protective of him as he had a rocky start in special care and is lucky to be here at all.. so want to do all I can for him..
Do you think that a noisy nightclub next door can affect a small baby - I suspect it might get his day and night a bit confused if nothing else?

This is only my opinion cos I'm in no way an expert, but I think that children/babies just think whatever circumstances they live in is normal, and he is very young. If anything your LO might pick up on any anxiety you are feeling about the situation (which sounds terrible - the last thing you want is banging music until the wee small hours when you're trying to get some rest after having to care for your LO).

Try and relax about the effect it's having on your DS (easier said than done I know), hope the council pulls it's finger out and sorts it out for you - good luck smile

Thank you - it's reassuring to know what you think! Helps take the urgency out of the situation.
I think we will end up moving as the flat is so small - we already need more room - but I guess we don't have to rush as much..
