From their very first breath, babies begin taking in sensory information that aid in in their physical, mental, and emotional development. In the first few months, babies brains can only process small amounts of the information they see and hear, but this mental processing matures very quickly to begin recognizing and making sense of the world around them.
From 30 days to 12 months.
From birth, babies develop their own personal taste for soothing sounds. Parents, Medical professionals, and behavioral researchers all have different theories on the most soothing sounds for newborns; but it is known that common noises help to create calm babies.
Sound of your Voice
Soft talk and familiar voices are found to be extremely comforting for difficult newborns. Speaking in a low comforting voice or soft humming tones will help to soothe babies.
Soft, sweet music helps to calm your newborn as well as helps to block out uncomfortable sounds that can interfere with sleep. Be careful to use pleasant, soothing music that does not overstimulate them with jarring changes in instruments or loud vocals.
Natural patterns, including soft rain, ocean tides, and babbling brooks are some of the most common sounds used to soothe newborns due to the repetition of recorded loops.
Television sets, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, and other household sounds are traditionally some of the most common methods used by parents for calming their newborns.
