Is It Beneficial For Infants To Listen To Music While Sleeping
Soft music is fine: Soft music is a nice addition to an infants "comfort place" where you let them nap or sleep for the night. Babies are use to noise in the womb & heartbeats & digestive sounds were their norm so a little music is fine, or the sound of a fan or radio static. Plan to leave it on all night or the baby may startle & cry if they awaken & it is gone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not ideal: It's obviously not ideal ... But, if you're doing it - just listen and don't look at the screen (ie, use ur phone laying down not the computer) - as this can mess up your sleep cycle. Also, I'd suggest turning off autoplay. Last, be extremely careful that the earbuds don't cut in to your inner ear canal - as this can cause damage. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!
No: Anytime a teen listens to hard loud music thru headsets may lead to hearing loss. Plus listening to music with words or tv keeps the brain stimulated as hearing never quits processing. Try substituting a sleep sound machine as many of us sleep better with constant droning. Like any bad habit be prepared for resistance! Teens never think bad things will happen. Be patient but firm on your request. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably Not: I think this depends on how we define "forced". If the child seems to have some interest, but may be lacking the initial motivation, then a little prodding may be helpful. But completely forcing a child who has no interest will likely be non-beneficial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Physical mobility: When a kid can pull to stand in his/her crib, the chance they would suffocate in bed linen is negligible. Before then, i would consider it an invitation for trouble. Removing swaddling blankets, which are meant to help a newborn settle, should be accomplished before a month of age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I heard classical music is good for baby's brain development. Won't he be bored by the music. How can I make her sure she is listening to the music?
Music: Why would you think a child would be bored listening to music? Everyone has a different experience in hearing or listening to music. Thinking is influenced by sensory experience in ways that are hard to quantify, but many neuropsychologists have found that the brainwave patterns exhibited with some classical music are associated with complex organization and learning patterns. Complex topic! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it bad to sleep with earbuds in while listening to music? I've never done this but i want to try it a few times to see if it helps me sleep
Sleep with earbuds: Generally speaking, it is better to sleep without earbuds in place. If you do, no harm will come, as i presume you are not listening to loud music while you are trying to sleep. The bigger issue sounds like trouble sleeping. A noise generator in your bedroom, playing soothing sounds or music is a better choice than earbuds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: It is dangerous to co-sleep with infants. They do not have the strength to push away if you accidentally roll on them plus the bedding/pillows poise suffocation risks. Many new parents are sleep deprived and when they do fall asleep it's often very deep and they may not realize they are on their baby. Cuddle outside of bed - place bassinet right next to bed for easy access during night feedings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 2y/o is being difficult when it comes to bedtime. Refuses to take naps. What are some tips to make bedtime easier? He fights us to go to sleep.
Don't fight, ignore: his delaying tactics. Read "Little People" by Dr. Christopherson. . At a consistent bedtime, brush teeth, read, cuddle, then put him to bed in his own room, drowsy but awake, without bottle or pacifier, to learn to self-calm to sleep. Calmly walk him back to bed without making eye contact, talking to him or getting angry. His behaviors will 1st worsen, then stop, if you consistently ignore them. ...Read more
