Music plays a very important role in our lives and babies are not different. Even traditionally lullabies have proved to be very effective on babies for putting them to sleep. Music comes naturally to babies. They respond better to tune than to a speech.
Music is very soothing for the nerves and soul of the baby. I have tried playing music for my son ever since he was born. Whenever he became really fussy and went out of my control, I began playing music for him. It can be radio or a classical number or even my own soothing tune, it doesn’t matter as long as it is melodious.
Music can put babies to sleep. For the parents, who often use cry-to-sleep method to put their baby to sleep, trying playing music for him can be a good idea.
If you will play music to a crying baby, it is very much possible that he will forget his tears and pay attention to the tune. He may also try to figure out by rotating his head, where it is coming from. Music comes to the resort of both the baby and the parents.
If you will make a regular encounter of music with your baby, he will begin to understand the right pitch. It seems that they are gifted with rhythm. As the baby grows, you will be surprised to see him getting excited or even dancing to the tune of music.
Listening to music at an early age also makes babies learn language. Not just tunes but a melody with words has a stronger influence on babies. Since infancy is the age when a child develops his language skill, music can bring an advantage. Doctors have started using music as a therapy to sick or premature babies. Studies say that activities of baby’s cell ferments rise after listening to music.
So what music to play for your baby? You can buy CDs of classical music, or the ones with the sounds of nature, such as waterfalls, rain, birds etc. So enjoy music with your baby and relax.
