Choosing The Right Music For Your Baby

Mar 12, 2008
A number of theories say that classical music can actually make babies smarter. Music can be a good way to start introducing your baby to the sights and sounds of the world outside the womb. CDs and videos for babies are sold in the market and many new mothers buy them for their growing babies.

Music can help calm your baby when he gets restless or anxious. There are several choices you can choose from, depending on the nature of music you want your baby to listen to.

The type of music you prefer when trying to relax can also be good for your baby. There are good compilations of Mozart or Bach music that you can use for his bedtime. The music of Enya or Georgia Kelly can be very calming, relaxing and peaceful.

When your baby is doing his day activities or playing, you can play nursery rhymes or music for kids to stimulate his senses. Some kids also respond positively to Phillip Glass music that has a simple and rhythmic sound. It can enliven and cheer up your baby. Soft or lively gospel music can also be good options to keep him in a good mood. Soothing music can help in getting him to take short naps during the day. It can also lessen his tantrums, which you will surely find helpful.

Additionally, you can be creative in choosing baby music by picking nursery rhymes or kiddie songs from movies that you like. They will not only stimulate his hearing senses but can also entertain him visually.

White noises or sounds that are monotonous can also be restful for the baby. White noises like the sound of a vacuum cleaner or electric fan or other sound devices that mimic the sound of the ocean or rain can be helpful. They can block disturbing noises from outside your house that can make your baby restless and irritable. It is not necessary to create an artificially-silent environment for your baby. This will make it more difficult for him to sleep when surrounded by normal sounds or noises.

Music can also soothe not just your baby but you as well from the stressing noises outside your house. Listening to classical music and making it a part of your daily routine can be a wonderful way of bonding.

Just as food nurtures your baby's growing body, so do the elements of music such as tune, tone and synchronization nourish his rapidly developing brain. Even when your baby is still inside your womb, research shows that music has a positive effect on his neuron system that is said to be responsible for his future learning, language development and musical ability. Music is also an ideal therapy for stressed-out and tired mothers. Just having music playing in the background can significantly alter the way you and your baby feel.
