    I don't know about baby size hearing protection, but if you are thinking about taking your baby near a shooting range, my suggestion is: don't. Their ears are too sensitive, and the noise of firearms could damage their hearing. If your family goes with you to a match you are competing in, make sure your wife keeps the baby away from the firing line.

    Oh, I had pictured "babies." At 8 and 5 they are pretty good size children. But still, be very careful with their hearing. Guys like you and me don't hear so well from all the shooting and loud noises over the years. Your kids can hear "all" the music now. Try to keep it where they will still hear it when they're adults. When my kids were that young, our whole family was involved in competitive shooting. When they were around he firing line, they wore double hearing protection...ear plugs with muffs. In fact, my wife and I did also, but we did it for concentration. It is good to hear you are concerned about the matter. You are obviously a good parent.

    When my kids were small, I took a set of those cheaper muffs with the all plastic head band and cut the band in the middle. Then, overlap the two halves till you get the size you need and carefully drill two holes through both halves and pop rivet together. Finish by wrapping a layer of black plastic tape around the joint to prevent their hair from being caught. Worked great for my kids for several years. I even put a different color tape on them so they had "their own" muffs.

    http://www.sportsmansguide.com/showad.html?promo_code=W99&item_id=22389&dc_id=4 try those. Not sure if they would be small enough, but the price is right.
