Singing the Way by Patrick Laude download in pdf, ePub, iPad

Your baby may be trying to participate in her own way. Sing one note and hold it as long as possible with your chest raised.

Your goal is to keep your jaw open long not wide without closing for all of your vowels. Choose a simple, familiar tune or make up your own melody.

The advantage of making up your own song for your baby is that you can choose simple, familiar words that relate to your baby and her daily routines. Notice that the words are very repetitive. As daily routines happen regularly, they provide many opportunities for your baby to hear the same song over and over again.
