Ever notice how much your baby loves hearing your favorite Dave Matthews song? Or Jack Johnston? Or whoever it is you crank up? Of course your baby has excellent taste — he has yours! If he sees you enjoying what you listen to he’ll probably enjoy listening too. Recognition is key - when he hears something familiar that made him happy before – chances are he’ll be happy again. Does all this mean your child is going to become the next musical prodigy? Nah – well, maybe. But if nothing else she is learning to break down words into syllables and distinct sounds – one of the early building blocks to reading. Yes, by all means listen to “Rock-a-bye Baby” and “Twinkle, Twinkle” – but don’t be shy about sharing your favorites with your child too. And don’t forget, your baby loves to hear your voice; doesn’t matter if you can sing or not! Could be his first words come from the lastest American Idol hit.
