My point is that those early months with your newborn are a special time and music really creates a bonding relationship. To this day, if I try to sing her a song that is a lullaby (AKA – Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star or Rock-A-Bye-Baby), I get the “mommy…shhhhh!” I don’t think it is because I am a bad singer, but I think it is because she wasn’t in tune to that music from the start. I really wish I would’ve had Choosy Kids newest CD to help me introduce her to songs that are meant for her age.
Our Special Time is a CD developed especially for newborns, infants and toddlers and their play partners (that’s YOU!) It has a mix of music that everyone can enjoy – even me! I played it for my 2 year old the other day and she really did enjoy it. She started to repeat the words from Baby Baby Bounce With Me after listening to it one time! The focus is on routines of your day and active learning for early brain development and body awareness. Who doesn’t love a song that helps parents move their little ones and gets older kids get up and moving!?
Now, if I sing a song from Choosy’s Our Special Time CD, I don’t get the typical “mommy…shhhhh!” She now sings with me, starts to do the movements (that her and I made up together) and enjoys “our time together” listening to music that we both love!
What artist or kind of music have been a hit with your children? Did you have the brain malfunction like I did when it came to singing songs to your new baby? What about your toddlers? Do they like a certain kind of music? Share with me!!!
