Studies have shown that exposing your baby to music can speed up the process of them learning to speak and help your baby master complex language concepts faster. In a study of 9-month-old babies conducted at the University of Washington, researchers studied the effect of exposure to music on babies’ brains.
Think of singing as your baby’s first language lesson. Singing is not only soothing but it teaches your child, introduces new words, strengthens listening skills and even strengthens emotional bonds.
Singing to infants strengthens the bond between parent and child, and helps regulate the baby’s arousal level—it’s sense of awareness and attention. By altering your baby’s mood, singing may help with feeding and sleeping, which in turn positively affect the infant’s growth and development
Even if you have a lousy voice, your baby doesn’t care. Even if you don’t really feel like singing, give it a try. It may lift your mood too.
