It is true when they say that child development starts in the womb. Whether you can hear your unborn baby, they can hear you and are learning to recognize voices and other sounds that they will hear often once they are welcomed to the world. According to several psychology magazines, daily interactions with your unborn baby will also help in child development.
Teach your baby patterns while he is still in the womb. By pressing on your stomach in one to two spots repeatedly, yet slowly, will make the baby want to do the same. He will learn this game you are playing and will eventually play with you. Playing certain types of music at various times will teach your baby a rhythm and "train" them to do things at a certain time. Schedules are important. If you play the same song each time before you go to bed, when your little one gets here, they will associate it with bed time and fall asleep when they hear it. When working with a schedule, if you routinely get up at a certain time and eat at a certain time, your unborn baby will learn this routine and take it with him once he gets here.
