Putting babies to sleep isn’t easy, which is why it’s become common practice for many parents to play a little bit of music for their babies to allow them to fall asleep. But is this a good idea? There are many reasons why this can be looked at as something, but also plenty of pitfalls that can come from it. Here are both sides of the argument so you can proceed with a level head.
Music is Relaxing
There are countless benefits to music, and the fact that it’s super relaxing is just the tip of the iceberg. From this perspective, having your baby listen to a few beautiful lullabies as they drift off can be a wonderful thing. Not only will it be easier for them to fall asleep, but they’ll start falling in love with music as a result!
Not Becoming Too Reliant On It
The obvious negative to playing music for your baby before bed is that they’ll become too reliant on it. You want your baby to be an independent sleeper who can pass out to all kinds of noises and even no noises at all. The only way to help them do that is to play them music occasionally, even often before bed, but not exclusively.
