When the little baby comes to this world, he needs to gradually adapt to this new world with air, sunshine, and more various sounds.Parents should adopt a cautious and transitional approach to let the baby gradually accept and adapt to the environment, which is worthy of promotion and praise.However, if the quiet is a little “abnormal”, it may not be beneficial to the baby’s growth and development.
Meimei has been 3 months old. Since her birth, her parents, grandparents, grandparents, and nanny have acted like “thiefs” no matter what they do at home. Especially when Meimei is sleeping, the whole house is unusually quiet!Does the baby really need to be “like this” quiet?
Mother’s stomach is not quiet
The baby can hear sounds before he is born, and the fetus at about 28 weeks of gestation has a well-developed sense of hearing.In the mother’s womb, the baby can not only hear the sound of mother’s heartbeat and bowel movements, but they can also hear all kinds of sounds outside the belly: the voice of father and mother, the sound of music, the beeping of car horns, etc.Although not all sounds can leave an impression on him, he still remembers many melodies.Just like experts say, after the baby is born, in a new and unfamiliar world, those once familiar sounds will give him a great sense of security, or make him quiet, or make him happy.Therefore, when a baby comes to this world, the various sounds in life are also part of his life.
Listening means learning
From the first day of birth, the baby’s auditory organs have matured.Therefore, listening is his first instinct when he comes to this world: he may not see things clearly, but he can hear sounds.It can be seen that the baby first understands the world through sound.Therefore, from the birth of the baby, the process of listening is the process of collecting and learning all kinds of information in this new world.
Then, on weekdays, the various sounds produced by the family’s normal activities, such as: walking, water, talking, etc., these sounds will stimulate the baby’s hearing and make him gradually understand and familiarize himself with the environment in which he lives.Therefore, it is completely unnecessary to make the house quiet for fear that the sound of the home scares the baby.
Listening also needs training
Although babies are born with sensitive hearing, the development and perfection of hearing also requires training, because he needs to associate those intuitive reflexes with the brain to produce meaningful reflexes.Professor Brad Stsch, Dean of the American Academy of Audiology, believes: “A baby’s hearing is controlled by the degree of brain development, so it is impossible for him to process sound overnight. When a newborn is born, the sound is brought from the auditory nerve to the brain, but the brain I don’t know what to do with this information.” Therefore, babies gradually associate sounds and things (including objects and actions) in daily life, and their brains will gradually recognize the information (such as the position of the sound, the sound of the sound). Meaning) record it.After such continuous “learning”, the development of the brain and hearing will promote each other to make the baby’s hearing more acute.
Babies like lively and need to be quiet
During the day, listen to music, tell stories, and play games with your baby; let him watch the adults do housework, such as washing dishes, washing clothes, sweeping the floor, etc., and tell him what they are doing.The baby listens to your words, looks at your expression, watches your movements, and recognizes the different sounds made by different things. These will make him feel novel and joyful. 6 to 12 months is the golden age of baby’s hearing development. The language and sound stimulation he receives on weekdays will be stored in his little head and become the basis for future cognition and speech.Moreover, growing up in an environment with a harmonious and moderate sound, the baby’s mood will be very happy, and the personality will be more cheerful.Of course, the baby also needs to have quiet moments so that his little ears can rest and his spirit is not always in a state of tension and excitement.When the baby sleeps, although there is no need to be silent, it is still necessary to provide the baby with a comfortable and soft sleeping environment.Because of good sleep quality, babies can get better rest and development.As long as there is no loud noise, normal daily activities will not affect the child’s sleep.
