    why was the first thing that came into my head the song "shake your booty"... but with the word "baby" replacing "booty"?

    :eek: :help:

    this is good news, one of my kids main activities is to get bounced to the rhythm of whatever music is in the changer.

    This, of course, assumes one can bounce said baby in some semblance of rhythm...

    One of my friends plays guitar w/ me... when we are playing or jamming, his wife says their baby kicks in rhythm, in utero...

    From what I've been told by most people involved in the field of music therapy, the ability of the parents doesn't matter. For example, if you were to sing in an awful voice to a child, he would still be able to recognize the pitches you were singing and try to mimic it. This is the fundamental aspect necessary for development. It wouldn't hurt to sing, dance and bang on pots and pans with some semblence of order, but it's the actual action that's most important.

    For those interested in this stuff, look into Orff instruments.
