Evidently there’s science involved in the benefits of sleepy music for babies in the womb. And I used that phrase because apparently a lotta people use that phrase to look for lullabies. Probably because they don’t know how to spell lullabies. But let’s not go down that rabbit trail right now. Back to the science.
Sleepy music for babies in the womb is just plain good for them.
And not just for the babies. I saw some information that said moms who sing lullabies, while they’re pregnant, tend to enjoy better bonding with their children after birth. And they deal with less mom stress.
Check out these other healthy benefits…
- Calming music therapy helps premature babies develop better
- Little kids sleep better when you sing the same lullaby songs each night
- Music improves self-control and alleviates fear and anxiety
“But Tony, you mentioned science. What’s the science behind all those benefits?”
Thank you, invisible and inquisitive one. Yes, I’m getting to that.
Studies have shown that soothing music helps babies in the womb relax. And they continue to relax and breathe more deeply after they’re born, too. And that certainly improves oxygen saturation. Naturally, more oxygen to the brain is a good thing (Hey, who let Martha Stewart in here?) Plus, little babies who listen to calming music at feeding time appear to gain weight at a better rate. Music helps nursing mothers provide better nutrition. And that improves sleep.
And better sleep is good for the brain.
I believe the healthy benefits of sleepy music for babies in the womb proves, to anyone who’s willing to pay attention, that they’re not just a clump of cells. Because why would anybody care to sing to clump of cells? And would anybody try to calm down a clump of cells. Right?
I know babies, infants, toddlers, and kids benefit from lullaby songs. That’s why I’ve written and produced so many. The first collection I put together is called “Lullabye Bye.” And I published a sing-along coloring book with all the lyrics to that collection. Best part is, there’s a super secret link, inside the book, where you can download all the songs. So, kids don’t just get a fun book. They also get free songs to go with the lyrics.
Can you say “Healthy Benefits” for all?
OK, enough of my shameless self promotion. I’ll leave you alone so you can go get the book. But I’ll leave you with these words, from the book…
In your dreams you fly up high
Beyond the clouds, beyond the sky
And the sun and all its beams
Will keep you smiling in your dreams.
