Tips for New Mom: Tiny Tunes

[ 1 ] August 13, 2008 |

Ttcd03Music is such a wonderful stimulation for young ears. In fact, research shows that early music training can boost intelligence. Not only that – it’s fun! Some of our favorite tunes come from Laurie Berkner, Dan Zanes, Baby Einstein, and Baby Genius. If you don’t have these CDs, no need to worry. Babies enjoy the soothing sounds of classical music when they’re sleepy and reggae, folk, jazz, and rock-n-roll when it’s time to play. Just turn on the tunes and groove with your infant!

If you like music and rhythm so much that you want to take a class, why not enjoy a free trial from Kindermusik? Many other places offer music classes, too—Music Together and Gymboree, to name just two. (Visit the Kido Resource Directory for more classes.)

Kristen Kardos, MA Ed., and Kathy McGuigan, MSW, the co-founders of RI New Moms Connection provide affordable, accessible pregnancy and new mom groups throughout Rhode Island. In “New Moms Tips” they share their knowledge, resources, and helpful ideas for moms just beginning their journey into parenthood or moms that may need a little refresher.

    danni cauley–the director of east bay music together is an amazing teacher! She is a former opera star and is great with kids. Just hearing an opera singer belt out ditties like “sweet potatoes” or “ding dong I’ve got the rhythm” makes the class worth the tuition–and the kids have such a ball
