Babies love music! Music can be used to calm babies, make connections with babies, and get babies excited. Different types of music can inspire different reactions from babies.
When my children were little, I used music to calm them down during a long car ride or to help them go to sleep. There are many lullaby songs that can be used. Some lullaby songs may be ones your parents sang to you that may have been used for generations.
Interactive songs can get your baby excited! While you sing or listen to music, you may wiggle their toes, tickle their toes or hold their hands. Dancing with them when you sing or listen to music is also fun!
