Soothing Sounds For Baby

You've spent most of your sleeping hours awake with a crying or fussy newborn baby since you got home from the hospital. You've gotten to the point you're about to burst with frustration. You're at your wits' end as an inexperienced parent and you're wondering what you can do to calm your brand new precious child. To help you along, there are some soothing sounds for baby that I have used and with some great results. Being that I have a two month old baby girl, I do practice some of these simple methods regularly.

One good way to help baby relax and in bonding with your child, is by lying their head down on your chest or stomach area to hear the noises your body makes. Babies spend nine months inside the mothers' womb surrounded by different "swooshing" noises that baby becomes accustomed to. So laying them against you seems to replicate these sounds and eases baby to sleep.

I also recommend, in a big way, singing to your baby. This seems to grab their attention and provides a diversion away from any discomfort they maybe feeling. Don't worry if you're not the greatest singer; your baby is not Simon Cowell. If you don't know any lullabies or words to songs, you could always hum.

If you're not going to sing to baby, playing music is a great alternative. I would suggest nothing too heavy or distorted. As long as it's a mellow, relaxing tempo and tone, give it a try. It certainly couldn't hurt at this point, right?. I played "The Doors" all the time for my first born and she would be out almost instantly.

You could definitely experiment with different soothing sounds for baby. I've made many different noises with my mouth I never fathomed I would be making, trying to come up with ways to "shush" my children. Different household appliances may work, such as fans, washer and dryer, and really anything that makes a noise as long as it isn't too obnoxious.

Well, here it is, I've saved the best for last. A phenomenal soothing sound for baby is the "white noise" sound. You know, the sound that your television makes when the cable isn't connected. Although, I think that's something they've done away with, you understand my reference. There is something about this noise that just lulls a baby right to sleep, and I'm not the only one who can attest to this. It seems to be a pretty popular soothing sound for baby. You can have access to this "white noise" by purchasing it via mp3 download, or via sound machine from online stores like Amazon or Ebay.

Whatever you do...don't lose control of your emotions out of frustration. Yelling or aggravated behavior will only make your baby more uncomfortable, and you'll more than likely make things harder on yourself in the meantime. If you can maintain composure and patience, it will only make things that much easier for you and baby.

There are a number of ways to use soothing sounds for baby. These are just some quick tips for newbie moms and dads. A fussy baby is just the beginning of parenting. There are many more parenting techniques you will develop, and a ton of difficult decisions you will have to make. Just remember that you don't have to do it without any help or encouragement. As far as soothing sounds for baby, give these the good ole college try and you'll probably see results.
