Sound and music play

Making sounds and music with babies is a lot of fun, and it’s also great for baby learning and development

When babies listen to and make sounds, they learn about their environment – for example, what birds, cars, and voices sound like. Or they learn that tapping on the floor makes a different sound from tapping on a saucepan. Or that blowing a kiss makes a different sound from blowing a raspberry. 

They’re also learning that they can make things happen – for example, when they shake a rattle, they make noises. 

Making sounds and listening to music can be a great way for babies to express and explore emotions

And music is also great for bonding with your baby. For example, when you sing to your baby or hold them close while you dance to music, it helps to build a loving relationship.
