Music Helps new babies in several ways

Updated on March 16, 2008

Well in my years of childcare I have been through several generations, styles of care and fix it ideas for crying babies, colic and sicknesses.

I have found some parents tried the sound of a vacuum to soothe their crying child, the t.v. , the radio, singing to them.

Personally I have found rocking a baby and playing musuc intended for them is very helpfull. What we did was get a CD player and hooked up two small speakers. I had cd's that had the sounds of a mother's heart beat, "Sounds of the Womb", for the brand new baby. Then as they grew older, a few months we used other children Classical, modern,old songs done strictly to soothe a small child. I would rock the baby and sing the songs or not, it just depended on the child and the song.

They have songs done in soothing music about all the classical nursery rhymes...one of my favorites....Walt Disney put out one called "Rock-A-Bye BABY" with songs like 'When you wish upon a star', 'Till there was you' for a few...

Fisher-Price put out one called "Good Night,Sleep Tight" with songs like ' Mommy', 'Star trails'..and this one has the heartbeat sounds with it.

babygenius put out one called "night, night classics" and it is all instrumental. with songs like 'Moonlight Sonata', Beethoven, and some Mozart..... to name a couple. These are really great for all ages to fall asleep by.

I found that these children turned out to have a real love of music as they grew ......Many are now playing an instrument of one kind or the other.

I found they would also like to dance when certain songs came on.

These are just a few...they have hundreds out there..and played softly and in a calm room when they are being nursed, or fed and getting ready for rest it never seemed to hurt them and they slept soundly.

This is simply my own personal experiences with babies and music and I think it is good for them. So don't be afraid to try it..also is calming to a tired Mommy.

      The best testimony comes from a mother who went through it all. :-) In our preschool, we play classical music when the students are feeling restless and rowdy. It does help a lot :-)

      G-Ma,

      This hub is great because we sometimes do not think of the outside influences we subject our tiny ones to. Music has to be a positive influence... as long as it is not some "headbanger" style. Let the babies grow up and BANG THEIR OWN HEADS if that is what they decide to do. You Rock G-Ma!
