    Apparently hearing is in place by about 23/24 weeks. Until then won't be much use. Can distinguish between light and dark before hearing.

    I'd wait a while yet before you start with music.

    But yes, I think its a good idea. Only I'd go with something a little less aggressive and loud than heavy metal. Might upset the eardrums as we don't know how sensitive to such loud sounds Baby is. I'd not want to stress them with a loud amount of noise. I'd go for more soothing and encouraging music :)

    I don't play music especially to mine, it just hears whatever I'm hearing.
    James ended up listening to a lot of Eminem though as I lived with my parents in the last tri of my pregnancy with him and my brother used to play it constantly! Luckily I quite like his music myself so I didn't mind.
    Baby goes nuts when OH plays his rubbish dance music too loud in the car, as do I!

    I ometimes put my ipod earphones to my tummy. The baby doesn't seem to do anything to boring songs (Snow Patrol etc) but he/she does like to have a little kick about to The Hoosiers and The Fratellis :D

    I play music all day everyday, but I dont think bubs has a preference yet. Apparently its Classical that babies like I think :think: I sing to my little one all the time - poor child :lol:

    Oh my god i have been thinking the same thing too
    And i was going to post the same thread when i got back from work
    Asking what music everyone likes and if they wil play classical to baby bump
    They say to play classical HATE IT and heavy metal is the flipside to it
    My James is a heavy metal man (dont worry girl he wears jeans not black cloaks) :rotfl:
    UUURGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH i cant stand his taste in music but ive learnt to tolorate and blank out most of it but the really heavy stuff well NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GET IT OFF NOW.
    James recons i should start playing his heavy metal c*** to the baby. NO NO NO WAY. :puke: I am not going to put myself through such torture.
    No matter what the so called experts say about brain development
    :shakehead:

    I don't play anything specifically but listen to the radio a lot so baby hears what I hear

    Oooo seems I have different tastes then LOL

    I absolutely love Rock and Metal music whereas my sister adores, you know, that dancey c*** :rotfl: I listen to hers though occasionally and she even likes System of a Down now and again :lol: Although it is a little different from her usual Paul Van Dyke (sp)

    In fact my 4 year old daughter is the youngest ever Korn fan :moon:

    I love my music loud too :D When my mum was pregnant with me she used to play loud Rock music to me all the time... and then when I was born I slept though anything and everything :)
