Reading and Talking to Your Unborn Baby
While pregnant with my son, I read and talked to him throughout the day. When we found out the gender and settled on a name, I would say his name and tell him what I was doing or say things such as, "Alright. It's time to get begin our day. Let's go to the laundry room and start the wash." A baby's hearing develops around 16 weeks. I would also sing lullabies and other simple songs as well. By doing this, your baby will be able to recognize your voice after he or she is born! How amazing is that?!
"...studies have found that babies who are sung to while they're in the womb recognize the same tune when it's sung to them after they are born (so choose your baby Muzak with that in mind…)."
