Rockin' Tots , has been around for a few years and has finally found a spot on the web for everyone to see.
We've got a FB page to look at but it's not the same as a website, not a professional website, just a 'here I am' website with some information and a place for you to become a member of this little early childhood music school(with benefits for ongoing learning)!
Let's start with a little about why we're here-On the Web!
Well, everyone else is! No, that's not it!
We're here to promote the benefits of a music education for children and adults right from birth,before even!
Foetus's can hear sound very early in the peace about 18 weeks and from 24 weeks on their ears are really developing.
Today, let's talk about Sleep! That word that means so much to the new Mum and Dad with their eyelids drooping and a crying or wakeful baby.
What can you do?
For starters,you can be singing and massaging and listening to lullabies for your unborn child from 18 weeks(or earlier) and onwards.
Why lullabies? 1. They help you relax and sleep, and 2. they relax your unborn child and 3. when baby arrives, you have a tool to help them to sleep.
No more 'white noises' for your baby! I know that it is recommended as it is similar to the sounds of the womb that the baby has been listening to along with all the gurgles and your heart beat etc. etc.
Sing to you baby! Get Dad or your partner to sing to your baby! Put the lullabies on when it is time to rest. Teach your baby that these mean 'Go to sleep time!' You will be thankful at 2 or 3 am when baby is born and is up for a play, or worse, and you are dropping on your feet.
Above all, Relax and Sing! It's good for both of you. Baby doesn't care if you didn't make the Gondwana choir or Dad can't match Pavarotti, they just want to feel secure and listen to their parent's voices making nice sounds so they can Sleep.
Here's a start for you-
Take care now!
