    According to the RN at the infant care class I just took, you don't play classical music for the baby to higher their IQ, you play classical because of the pitch. The babies/fetuses like the higher notes of the pianos and harps and stuff while bass tones, drums or booming noises upset them.

    It's why we do baby talk to them over regular talk.

    I have heard this and reading your question I did a search. I found websites that support this and also say this is not true.

    I did play josh groben and classical music with both my kids and I played with for them when they went to sleep. My kids started sleeping through the night at a very younge age. I dont know if its a credit to the music or not. But its not going to hurt anything to try it.

    As someone said if you dont care for the music put it on headphones and lay them across your belly.

    Led Zeppelin-Immigrant song, Black canine, Babe i'm Gonna leave You, The Lemon song. The Who-Baba O'Riley, we don't get Fooled back, at the back of Blue Eyes pink Floyd- conveniently Numb, choose You have been here, Us and Them those are in elementary terms a number of my favorites,i've got surpassed over many large, large artists.those provide a real experience of what classic Rock can sound like whilst carried out properly. desire you fall in love like I easily have, this song strikes my soul. study each and every physique's lists,they are all large songs-sturdy luck !!

    Yes, definitely. And especially play classical music to your child as soon as it is born (congratulations!). They find it easier to sleep if there is soft classical music, try Bach, in their rooms, but make it soft and quiet. Play classical music as much as possible, all different kinds; it does influence brain development and is also soothing, if you pick the right composers.

    Hope it all goes well.

    Congratulations!- Yes classical songs and children's songs will do. if you can place the radio on top of your belly that would be fine too. All my nephews and nieces who were reared by their mom that way are either music lovers or they excel in the academics.Perhaps it has something to do with hearing and brain wave development-

    I listened to extremely loud rap music all through my pregancy, and played it on a ghetto blaster during labor, and my son is first class honour roll in school every time. I think that whatever lowers your blood pressure and makes you feel relaxed is best for the baby.

    Listen to any kind of music, and make sure you sing and talk lots to your baby, too. Make sure your husband does as well, so the baby knows his voice.
