Well, I rocked my Lullabelly all throughout my third trimester and loved sharing my jams with my little one while she was still growing inside me. Now that Baby L is here, I really wanted to continue sharing music with her and so I decided to enroll us in a mom and baby music class.
Every Tuesday morning this summer we will be singing along to classics like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Itsy Bitsy Spider. I found a local music school that offers mommy and me music classes for babies and toddlers, but there are lots of national programs that offer similar classes across the country.
Starting music class with your little one early is a great way to introduce and educate children to music and culture. Research shows that music has a positive influence on children’s cognitive skills such as spatial reasoning and memory. Research also shows that providing children with a rich and stimulating musical environment can support their healthy growth and development.
Plus, taking a baby music class is a great way for Baby L and I to have some bonding time without her big sister around. And it’s a great way for me to meet other mommies with infants in my community. Cheers to that!
By the way, while I love singing to children’s songs, I also love teaching my girls about the music I love. We listen to Billy Joel and Lady Gaga too J
