Music, Crib Sheets And Your Newborn Baby

It’s frustrating to say the least to know whether your baby is getting enough sleep. Especially for new parents just getting to know their baby. Music sometimes helps a baby sleep. Some say that white noise is preferred, but some infants find the music they heard in the womb comforting.

New mommies often like to play music through headphones to their unborn babies. Although this is a great idea and will likely make the baby move, it may be an even better idea to sing to the baby. The ears are the first sensory organ to develop a connection to the brain. A baby who hears their parents singing to them from inside the womb is likely to remember their parents’ voices and feel an instant connection with them when they are born.

Many parents still choose relaxing classical music to help children to sleep and there have been several studies into whether this can have a positive effect on their intellectual development and concentration – the so called ‘Mozart effect’.

Perhaps one certain benefit of allowing children to listen to classical music (particularly when performed on real instruments, rather than synthesizers) is that this provides rich harmonies and musical textures which children’s ears can become acclimatized to at an early age, helping them to appreciate rhythm, pitch and harmony later on. Sadly, much music written nowadays for children relies heavily on artificial sounds and overly simplified melodies, but although these recordings are cheap to produce, they can lack the wide palate of sound and subtleties offered by authentic, real instruments.

Singing a lullaby to a sleepy infant really does help soothe them and put them to sleep. Just as soft music helps some adults sleep, it has a calming effect on babies and parents report that this is the only way they can get their little ones to sleep quickly.

Aside from soothing music to help a baby sleep better, sometimes finding high quality organic crib sheets makes all the difference.

Importance of choosing high quality organic crib sheets for the baby

Baby crib sheets are necessary for added protection and comfort to your babies. Finding the best baby crib sheets for your baby should definitely be one of your priorities. In searching for baby cribs, one should consider the size, style and the quality.

The health of your baby and comfort depends on you being able to buy the best bed linens that will calm and relax your baby. Cheap material may disturb the soft skin of your baby and you may also need to replace it repetitively.

To make your baby sleep in comfort like a Mother’s lap, you may follow these simple tips:

1. Parents should be concerned with crib safety, sheet materials and how easy sheets are to change and easy to wash. Select comfortable crib bedding with crib sheets that give out relaxation and softness making the baby sleep with pleasure.

2. The best crib sheets protect your baby against suffocation and strangulation by fitting firmly around the crib mattress without a skid.

3. Always buy more than one crib set so that you could change the bedding as needed. Parents may regularly need approximately four to five sets of crib sheets, because they need to be changed often.

4. Use crib sheets made with pure 100% cotton or cotton weave which is soft and very easy to be placed on mattresses. Cotton is given priority due to its durability. Cotton is also breathable, making it possible to maintain an even and comfortable temperature when your baby sleeps.
