Happy Friday! We hope that everyone has some fun plans this weekend! For all those people who were planning on watching us on Access Hollywood (we hope at least one person) , we are just filming today and going to air our segment on another date T.B.D. We will be sure to update you when we know the actual air date! So, you might not be out dancing in clubs right now, but there is no reason you should not be playing some good jams for your baby! Interesting enough, playing music for your baby when it is in utero is actual a great thing. Soothing songs, like talking to your baby are all ways to connect with your baby before it is born. While there has not been proof that playing music like Mozart or opera will make your future baby a lover of the arts, your baby is capable of hearing when it is in utero. Here are some of our favorite ways to connect with your future child with the use of sound and your voice:
* Set aside some time to read to your baby, perhaps a nursery rhyme or a children's book
* Come up with a "pet name" for your child as a way to start the vocal bond that you will eventually have when the baby is born
* Bring in the other parent for "family time" though it might seem a little strange, talking to the little tyke as a family is a nice way to establish "family time" from the beginning.
* Play some of your favorite tunes for your baby. Of course, the baby will not come out singing the songs word for word, but it can be soothing to the baby.
Do you have any other favorite ways of bonding with your baby when it is in utero? If so, share them with us! We love hearing from you!
Have a fantastic weekend!! Enjoy the cold/hot weather wherever you are and of course make time for family:)
