Do you sing to your baby in the womb? When I was pregnant with my first, I used to sing to the baby all the time, every song I knew. When my oldest was a tiny baby, there was one song I had sung to him prenatally that would always make stop crying. To this day that is the song he wants to hear when I tuck him in at night.

That's wonderful, I listened to classic and other calm music a lot while pregnant, but I can't sing, so I didn't want my little one to have to suffer through that.

Haha, Siv, I know what you mean.  I didn't purposely sing to my little one, but I do tend to randomly sing throughout the day as I putter around the house.  It's not pretty to hear though.

I sing all the time as well but I don't think I should outside of the shower! My little Ian loves to hear me sing You Are My Sunshine. It  is the one song I sing to him all the time and it helps him get to sleep.

I sang and read to my baby (before she was born) and still do. My daughter loves to read and sing and I think it is because I was always doing both.

Yes I do, they say it helps them to recognize my voice once they are out.

I knew a woman who wrote to her baby every day while she was pregnant.  It was her goal to someday share what she had written once the child was an adult.  I thought it was a pretty amazing project.

I am pretty sure that I have been singing since the day I was born, even if it might be a little out of tune. I have sung to all of the babies, even when I would just babysit for other people. My kids, your kids, any kids really. Music is always a good thing to never go without.

I sang and danced a lot with my first pregnancy but rarely with the second. My first child is a gifted singer and dancer, and she's a 'celebrity' at school. The second child is tone deaf and has two left feet and I can't help but wish I had sung more.

My singing voice is terrible and I'm just a few weeks pregnant, so I'll spare my unborn baby the agony. What I've been doing instead is play my favorite music all around the house. When I'm out of the house I place one piece of my headphones on my stomach. I want my baby to appreciate gospel rock now so that we never have to fight over what to listen to later.

YES I DO. It relaxes me. I also play some melodies from a CD. :)
