Post Break: Soothing Music

Remember in my previous post about fetal development that baby can now hear from inside the womb? Aside from having this as a good time for parents to talk to baby it is very advisable to listen to music too. This can be soothing for both baby and mommy.



I am musically inclined since I was a kid and still loving listening to nice tunes but I can't play instruments anymore like before. As a kid I studied piano lessons and I just had to stop at some point and somehow lost it. I can still do some notes but not play full song. I am thinking now is the best time for me to do those music things again, I want baby to hear mommy playing piano too aside from my usual lullaby. Since earlier stage of my pregnancy I sing many songs to baby mostly Disney and other favorites. If working I put music as I work the whole day or when waiting for baby daddy in the car to be out from work . This serves as my personal bonding time with baby, I want him to know my voice, to hear me, to know mommy's just out here keeping him comfortable in there. And we noticed baby moves and reacts when we hear nice tunes from movies, tv, radio or concert. Perhaps because we attended some opera and musical concert previously too.



Soothing music isn't just for baby when he or she's in the womb, it's best when baby's out and hearing it clearly. For me I will like it if baby will be musically inclined like mommy and continue those things that I started before. I won't mind getting back on some piano lessons so I can eventually teach him to play too and maybe have him set his own piano lessons in time! (too excited huh!) Now maybe I'm thinking too much of the future ahead but I can't help it. My excitement grows more and more everyday with some worries on the side over things too which I think can't really be avoided.

You're right, music helps with the development of baby's brain..So sing, listen to music, and play your tune, Ayie!

Tekkaus said...

Yeah! I know this Ayie. And the right music is very important for the baby. :p

I let Raimie listen to plenty of music too, when he was in my womb. Classical, jazz, pop, everything. :)

Ayie said...

Icy,

Oh yeah Icy, sure will!

Ayie said...

Tekkaus,

I can see future daddy tekkaus can be well prepared in time.

Ayie said...

Lina,

Did Raimie develop fondness with music Lina?

Tes said...

I agree, Ayie, brain is complex and I agree that the baby's brain develops into a mutli-faceted item with the help of music and singing. I believe if you start early then yes, your baby has a higher chance of being musically inclined! :)

When I let the baby in my wife womb listen to MJ music, I can see him jumping inside fromt the movement on the tummy surface...., that was my eldest son, now a great fan of MJ, LOL!

foongpc said...

Yes, let your baby listen to music. Definitely good for the baby in brain development and health.

Ayie said...

Tes,

Good thing I have been singing to baby and also we're always tuned in to the radio while I'm working =)

Ayie said...

Pete,

So your MJ music influenced him so much! Baby also moves around when there's a great tune.

Ayie said...

Foong,

Maybe you can play piano again so I can make baby listen to it! hehe

Mummy Gwen said...

Classical music is the best..hehe. Yes..baby can hear everything while in the womb.

When I was almost due around 2 weeks before Gwen came out, I was at the movies watching X-Men..hehe..I could feel Gwen kicking my tummy coz the sound system was really loud..haha.

Ayie said...

Mummy Sexy,

I watched Ninja Assassin too and there was one scene when baby really got startled! I just simply talk to him and tell him mommy and daddy are watching movie =)

singing is indeed a great way to keep the baby calm. another great way to create a bond between the parents n the child. i bet with your music, you can easily calm him down when he is born. :)
