it is true that loud music at 8pm is OK. I think it depends on your local council, but they usually only get snotty about loud noise between 11pm and 8am.
But anyway. could you maybe get your toddler used to sleeping through music by putting some on quietly when he's knackered or something? babies will generally sleep in whatever conditions they're used to...

Second the sympathy have similar "issues" with neighbours.
When the music is on late or they have loud fights outside our house I fantasise about going into our garden when we get up (6.30am due to dd wake up and Dh job) and having the Today prog on REALLY LOUD. Their bedroom is at the back and as they dont work they like to lie in.

Ha! Although in terms of intellect I think the dog has it...
Godzilla what a great idea. Then all the loud music players, crapping dog owners, violent arguments havers ("I'll f -ing knife you" as my neighbours say to each other) types can carry on their grim behaviour without bothering anyone decent/normal.

we had a problem with noisy neighbours and when we were moving out our solictor told us that you can sue the neighbour for 'ruining the peaceful enjoyment of your home'. you need to get recordings as proof of how loud it is and keep a journal of when they play music, it doesn't matter what the time is either, if its annoying you write it down. i think you need a couple of months worth of evidence but you have that option there.

Aww sweets memories of my also 18 month old at the time of the OP. She would have slept on a washing line though, even now at 16 (it's been a long time for the poor OP) she pretty much sleeps through anything.
If you are thinking I am just being a smug cow I can present child number 3 to you. still cries at the memory
