Singing to Your Baby Has Lots of Benefits

March 2, 2014

Comments Off on Singing to Your Baby Has Lots of Benefits

When you try to keep your baby calm and stop crying, you will most likely resort to singing. In a way, this helps in keeping your baby quiet. Therefore, whether you have a good voice or not, you try your best to sing any song just to stop your baby from crying. The truth is that babies receive a lot more benefits when you sing to them instead of rocking them when they cry.

According to a study conducted by Hungarian and Dutch researchers, it was revealed that babies have innate skills to detect the differences amongst the rhythm being played to them. They did the study by measuring the brainwaves and brain activities of the babies when they listen to a song. This only means that at such an age, they already know the difference between usual spoken words and melodies of a song.

Hidden Benefits of Singing to Babies

Aside from making babies feel entertained or relaxed, singing to them may also lead to the following:

  • Advanced language learning. There were some studies conducted that have proven that infant can learn their first language faster when they listen to music at an early age. They can easily pick up the lyrics in the song and eventually use the words they have recalled to speak an intelligible language.
  • Avoidance of speech deficiencies. Babies who are not exposed to languages or words at an early age could possibly end up with delayed speech development. For some, it could even lead to speech defects and disorders. However, when babies are accustomed to music, the possibility of speech disorder is very low.
  • Better parent-children relationship. When parents sing to their babies frequently, they form a strong bond at an early age. This makes the baby more trusting to the environment. As the baby grows older, he or she becomes more attached to the parents. Of course, this helps a lot especially in raising kids who will eventually want doing things their way.
  • Lower mortality rate. Studies have also revealed that music sets the mood of the infant. When the infant feels relaxed, feeding and sleeping becomes a regular cycle. There won’t be any problem in doing these important things. As a result, growth and development will take place.

How to Sing to Infants

If you already believe in the power of songs to the development of your baby, then don’t hesitate to try it out. Whether you have a great voice or not, it does not really matter. The most important thing is that your baby can listen to certain melodies and be familiar with some words through the lyrics. It is a big no though to place headsets on your baby’s ears. They are so sensitive and could potentially damage their sense of hearing.

As early as the 25th week of pregnancy, it is advised to start singing to the infant inside the womb. This must go on until they have already been born. In fact, some babies grew up to be great singers simply because they have been constantly exposed to songs and melodies.

It won’t hurt you to give this technique a try.
