The benefits of singing to babies

The benefits of singing to babies

Sing to your baby. It’s not a matter of if and how, rather a matter of when. And it can be beneficial to mother and child. Professor of Music Therapy Dr Shannon de L’Etoile talks with Zoë George about the importance of tone and pitch, when is the best time to sing to your baby, what singing does for babies with Down Syndrome, whether dads should sing to their babies, how singing can help mothers with post-natal depression… and if babies can sing along too.
