The baby remembers what he heard in his mother’s womb …
Studies have shown that a fetus who is regularly exposed to certain “auditory stimuli” during pregnancy remembers it later. For example, a baby quiets more easily by listening to music that has been exposed in utero.
Music, songs, nursery rhymes … what do babies like to listen to?
Babies are fascinated by all the sound vibrations. Their listening can thus be attached to music, to noises, to voices spoken or sung. The voice, especially that of the parents, which they perceived well before their birth, is a very attractive sound element for them. They weave an emotional bond with these specific voices very early. They are also sensitive to vocal expression in all its dimensions: accompanied by a smile, physical contact, warmth, rocking. Music has a calming effect on babies.
Lullabies, the first baby songs
The first baby-friendly song is the lullaby. It exists in all cultures, and it promotes in all cultures their falling asleep. But that does not mean that we must confine ourselves to the child repertoire and forbid other songs that we love as an adult. On the contrary ! All songs can please children when they are sung with emotion.
Apart from lullabies what to do to listen to a baby?
