So much for the sounds of silence

Soothing sounds for baby


The sounds of an upset baby can be frustrating for parents, and even embarrassing if the baby is crying in a public place. Parents rush to soothe the baby, doing anything and everything they can think of to calm and soothe their little one.

One of the most effective ways that parents can soothe their babies is with soothing sounds.

Infants and noise have a unique relationship: a jarring noise can provoke tears, upsetting a baby while other sounds provide a consistent calming effect.  Three sources of soothing sounds include white noise, the voice of the baby’s mother, and lullabies.

3 Types of Baby Soothing Sounds:




-         White noise can be any sound that is consistent and serves as a noise barrier, muffling other jarring noises. It is thought that white noise mimics the sounds the baby heard while she or he was in the womb, so it is comforting to hear white noise outside of the womb as well.

-         Mother’s voice. Another sound the baby became accustomed to while developing in the womb was the sound it his or her mother’s voice, which allows them to find solace in her familiar tone now that they are surrounded by unfamiliar sights and sounds in the world.

-         Lullabies. Perhaps the “oldest trick in the book” when it comes to calming an infant, almost everyone can remember some of the songs they heard during their childhood. From “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” to “You Are My Sunshine,” these songs are an easy way to calm your infant when he or she is upset.
