Listening to it doesn't actually have any benefits to baby, is that the most up to date info? I was just listening to classic fm in the bath and I couldn't remember what the general thinking was on this. I like listening to classical in general and my wee bud doesn't have ears yet, so it's hardly a pressing issue. But if it does her good I'll listen to more, without earphones, as pregnancy develops.
I'd say it probably becomes something reassuring and familiar so more likely to comfort than anything else.
Saying that though, I've been playing QI every night to help me sleep so I'm very interested to see if that has the same effect. I've not done it on purpose at all to get a response from the baby. (Did that with all sorts of music. Only thing he responded to at all was the music from a game I sometimes play on my phone. Typical.)
Should have clarified: with the comforting thing about music etc I've seen couoles who have said that they played chants and/or music during the pregnancy and when the baby was born they played the music which helped calm the baby down almost instantly because they recognised it. This wasn't a scientific process just individual accounts
Yeah I've seen similar Door. Anything that might help putting them to sleep or soothe down the line!!! I might try to schedule in some quiet time every evening down the line and listen to a few of my favourite songs while relaxing. This is my first, so I may as well take the chance to do nice things like this while I get the chance.
