Why is Instrumental Music Good for Babies?

Generally music are good for children as they become more creative and confident. It stimulates their senses and they value listening more to it when they are used to it. I use music when I am doing something in the kitchen and I put my baby in the playpen, baby always seems to be happy thinking that somebody is with them when there is music beside them. Music is the non moving companion of babies.

The feeling of security is good for children as they become more confident and can explore and maximize their potential to learn. Looking at babies when they hear music, you can see that they always try to concentrate and go with the beat, they either kick, smile and move their hands.

According to recent researches, music plays significant role in mental development of children. The mental conditioning is great and they carry this fondness for music until they grow up. It is also recommended that even when they are not sleeping it is advisable for children to listen to instrumental music (more so with babies).


Music in general is very beneficial to children, they stimulate the minds and is a factor for their mental growth and development. Music elevates the senses, makes a person more calmer and can make them concentrate more. Children are encouraged to be active in learning music. Lullaby instrumental music are proven good for the babies not only as lullaby and for getting her to sleep but also during waking time. The only difference is that you can play music with faster beat and rhythm when they are awake and you want your babies to listen to music.

Listening to the lullaby instrumental music makes the mother and baby sleep calmly, comfortable and longer -- the rest they needed is good for the overall health of the mother who is the primary caregiver and of course the baby.
