Singing linked to children’s development
We want to add a little fun to your reusable nappies changing routine
Did you know song time has been linked to children’s development, so not only is it fun but you are helping your child to learn too.
Here we have 4 reasons why singing to your baby is brilliant
- Much like a well-timed cup of tea singing makes you happy. It also releases endorphins and helps get you healthy. So pop on one of our new ‘I’m a little teapot’ reusable nappies and sing with your little one and don’t forget the actions…
- Singing helps with coordination so get your best moves ready and crack out a fabulous rendition of ‘Row row row your boat”. Get you and your baby moving, action songs are a brilliant way to develop your child's coordination, gross and fine motor skills, as well as their ability to concentrate and focus. Our reusable nappies are designed to move with your baby while they learn to get active so you still get the same great protection from poospolsions!
- It may seem silly at the time but a rousing rendition of ‘Wheels on the bus’ is helping teach your baby communication skills ‘Parents should sing to their children every day to avoid language problems developing in later life’
Singing traditional lullabies and nursery rhymes to babies and infants before they learn to speak, is "an essential precursor to later educational success and emotional wellbeing", argues Blythe in a book. ‘The Genius of natural childhood: Secrets of thriving childhood’ by Sally Goddard Blythe a consultant in neuro-developmental education and director of the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology.
- Did you know that singing helps baby’s brain development? It will build up their memory, as they recall lyrics and tunes - just think of how many songs you know off by heart without even trying. The songs can increase a little one’s attention and displays of positive emotion towards their mothers too. So popping on one of our ‘Three little-speckled frogs' reusable nappies and singing the tune to your little one is helping them to connect better with the world and develop socially.
“Ten green nappies, hanging on the line:” has a ring to it don't you think! You can sing that to yourself as you hang them up making light work of washing your reusable nappies too!
