I have been singing rhymes to my LO ever since he was in my tummy. I would even narrate stories to him. It is believed that babies tend to listen and learn while in the womb. So going by that logic, I would often describe my day to him. He loved it all, especially all the religious literature I would read out in the evenings and Mozart’s symphonies we would play later in the night. He would respond to it all by kicking aggressively. I loved it. Yah, but it’s true that such practice tends to lay the foundation of language development which is one of the most important developmental milestones for your little ones. The rhymes of infants and toddlers also have this capability.
