Sing with to your baby – Getting started

By Words Grow Minds January 23, 2024 11:36 pm

Singing is a gentle way to bond with babies. Listening to music and singing helps babies and toddlers learn to regulate their emotions and gather information about their world. A mix of traditional and favourite trending songs helps babies develop a love of music and build their speech and language. 

Here’s a few simple tips to get you started! 

  • Love your voice 

Your baby needs to hear your voice and they won’t mind if you are making up the words…or singing out of tune! 

  • Face to face 

Babies and toddlers watch your face closely when singing. This is how they learn to make sounds and words, and they’ll soon start copying you. 

  • Slow it down 

When we sing, we naturally slow down our speech. This helps babies hear each sound while having fun singing and enjoying music. 

  • Sing anywhere 

Sing with your baby while eating, bathing, walking, playing or driving. 

  • Repetition is key 

Go ahead, sing their favourite song for the hundredth time, it is actually building strong brain connections!
