6+ | Singing Softly
Singing to your baby is a wonderful way to enrich their everyday routines. Pick a favorite song or make up a tune, and gently sing to your little one, gazing toward them to enhance the sense of connection. Notice whether they move their arms to the beat or coo back to you. Their brain is soaking up everything you do.
Singing to your little one has many benefits. It can help moderate your baby's level of arousal -- a soft, soothing song can foster a sense of calm, whereas an energetic tune can help boost energy. Set the tone for your little one.
