It is needless to say about the importance of Singing and talking to a baby. A little fellow cannot talk as of yet to be able to respond. But just like “responding” to the facial expressions of parents, give a smile back or laugh at parents making funny faces, they are able to determine singing as another way of “talk”, conveying peace, warmness, positiveness, niceness. This is a therapy of sorts. This is why it is easy to put babies to sleep by singing them a song together with rocking and distracting with toys.
The Importance Of Singing To A Deaf Baby
It is impossible to teach a baby sign language due to its tender age but while singing to a baby, we convey positive emotions; then again, we smile and/or make funny faces. In addition, you do not stand still but accompany your singing with gestures entertaining the baby. It does not mean that parents should give up on sign language so far and wait until their baby grows older. Parents should keep going and teach their deaf baby just like a baby with hearing.
There is a hypothesis, that singing is the first lesson of language you give to your child. It will be too much to put headphones on a baby. It may cause damage to the ear membrane. Singing is the best way to introduce your baby to the music. When singing you regulate the volume of your voice. And you will sing good melodies only. So that will have a good effect and give positive vibes only on your baby. Moreover, it does not matter if you think you have no voice. Your baby will definitely like it because you are the closest person.
Start singing when you carry your baby in your tummy. Speaking of which, this is probably why they say that babies love the voice of a mother first. This is the first thing they recognize. When they do not hear, they feel it on the unconscious level. Of course, you could record the music for your baby you could sing instead but keep in mind that there is no recorder able to show emotions while playing like your face would.
It is an interaction, which you share with your baby. Therefore, do not put it on a technical device “shoulders”. Just make sure you sit or stand somewhere in front of your baby just so it could see you, observe your mimic and gestures and both of you will benefit from it enjoying your moments together. They are priceless no matter what.
