Lullabies of Love
NICU babies benefit greatly when they hear familiar voices, especially while still in the hospital. Researchers have shown that increasing language exposure during NICU admission is associated with better long-term language development. In addition, Lullabies of Love will allow NICU parents to take an active role in bonding with their baby by reading books and singing lullabies to their baby. During such a stressful and difficult time, this program will empower parents to be involved in their baby’s care and will hopefully provide a sense of normalcy in an otherwise unexpected situation.
