  • I'm 29 weeks and was able to sing my baby to sleep the other day! I just had some music playing and starting tapping my fingers against my belly in beat and singing and he just feel right to sleep! So they can def hear you. I think it's 18 weeks when they are able to start hearing things, takes them a while to really hear and recognize mommy and then longer for daddy and other things.

  • I use to do that...and when I did she would kick the snott out of me. I would play oldies. and now when I play the songs that I use to play,she goes crazy and jumps around (Im 38weeks) but I started doing it at 25weeks

  • I know they can, but I don't remember what stage in the pregnancy it is. I'm 36 weeks and we have been doing it for about a month or so. We play the same song to her every night. We are hoping when she is born then we can play that same song for her when she is upset and it will help soothe her. Just a fun experiment.

  • I think I read at 26 weeks they can here you the mommy-and a bit after that somewhere in 30 weeks other outside noises, like daddy, or music.
