Prenatal singing may reduce infant crying, study says

Babies born to women who sang lullabies during pregnancy and after birth generally cried for 18.5% of the time, compared with 28.2% of infants whose mothers did not sing to them, a study found. Researchers wrote in the journal Women and Birth that singing lullabies also was helpful for infants with colic and for mother-baby bonding.
