Have you ever noticed how small children adore music? Molly LOVES it when I sing to her. Whether to buy more time in the bath (when I just need 10 more seconds to rinse her head!) or to signal to an older baby / toddler that we’re transitioning to something else, songs come in handy ALL the live-long day! Movement helps children learn language and gives their busy bodies an outlet, so I like to add coordinated motions with my songs, too. Any favorite kid song is a bigger hit in the pool or bath (somehow it’s more fun in the context of a different environment, in my experience.) Does your baby like to hear music in the water? Leave a note in the comments!
