A new study finds premature babies who listen to live music are better able to eat, sleep and become comfortable in their new surroundings.
Researchers studied nearly 300 infants in 11 hospital neonatal units.
The sounds that improved a preemies’ vital signs had rhythms that matched the infant’s breathing rate or sounded like the mother’s heartbeat.
Preemies also did better when they listened to sounds of the ocean and to their parents’ singing lullabies.
