Does making your baby listen to music while in the womb have a good effect?
Music in the Womb
It was observed that when a lady was pregnant, she would listen to the same audio of bhajans every day, twice a day: once in the dawn, and once in the dusk. When her son was born, each time he would start crying, she would turn on the audio for him, and he would be pacified almost immediately. She swears making her child listen to comforting music when she was pregnant was possibly the brainy things she had done. Her child was also a comparatively calm and peaceful baby, and when she would see her friends scuffling with their screeching babies, she thanked her stars for the bright advice given to her by her mother.
Is it is essential to hear soft and calming music only?
Studies suggest that you don't have to listen to very slow music. Pop music too can help calm your baby, as your baby will find it easier to recognize beats, and periodic sounds work well with babies. However, also keep in mind that a baby's breathing pattern alters as per the beats, and listening to thumping music with fast beats for an continued period may stress out your baby.
What music is most suitable?
Different trials have shown that plants exposed to classical music all day, flourish and grow well. On the other hand, plants exposed to hard rock music all day withered up. Hard rock music had a very definite negative effect on plants. Although this doesn't mean that it will have the same negative impact on your baby, hard rock music is not calming, either for the mother or for the baby, and as such, it will definitely have no positive influence on your child. In addition, beats are haphazard rather than rhythmic, and unexpected shifts in volume may frighten your baby. Spiritual music and mantras transmit positive vibrations and are a good idea. Stick to a mix of pop, classical and spiritual music and mantras.
Can music make my baby bright?
There is really no proof to support the theory that making your child listen to music when in the womb will make him intelligent and bright, although studies do suggest that motivation children in the age group of three to four years to listen to specific kinds of music, especially instrumental, can elevate skills like math.
How do I make my baby listen to music?
Don't anticipate your baby to hear the music you are listening to on your earphones! You need to have music playing on your player, or you could keep earphones over your belly if you don't want to listen in. The music doesn't have to be very noisy and booming for your child to be able to hear it. The placenta is a good conveyer of sound and your baby should be able to hear music playing at a reasonably low volume.
How much music should I make my baby listen to?
It is never a good idea to exaggerate anything. Although you can definitely have music playing in the background for a longer time, if you are playing music targeted at your abdomen, restrict it to a couple of hours a day. You don't want to hamper too much with your child's sleep, or with her breathing patterns.
