Benefits of Lullabies; Accelerate Baby Healing

Every parent would always want the best for their children, not the exception for treatment. Because of this, most parents are skeptical of pain medication for their babies and seek alternatives.

One easy and effective way to relieve pain recently discovered by a study of the origin of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London. According to the study,"lulling or lullabies"is the most effective prescription to relieve pain, reduce heart rate, and anxiety in infants.

Study researcher, Dr Nick Pickett, said parents had always been singing to her child. By instinct, they know it can soothe their babies."Nevertheless, there is no scientific evidence that supports the truth of the matter,"he said.

Pickett and his team conducted experiments on 37 infants and toddlers who were treated at GOSH aged 7 months to 4 years. They were treated for cardiac or respiratory disorders.

Then, the researchers divided the participants into three groups. The first group played the song"lullabies", the other group read the story, or did not get any treatment. The third treatment is performed for 10 minutes.

Furthermore, a team of researchers measured heart rate and pain level of the participants. They found that the group treated lullabies song most significant change, the heart rate decreased on average from 134.1 to 128.7, and the pain level dropped from 6.21 to 5.64.

Meanwhile, in the other group, no significant decrease. The researchers also found, the song sung by direct effect is more noticeable than the recorded music.

"Facial expressions and visual stimulation for"lulling"also has an important role to add to the effect,"said Pickett.

The researchers assert that parents avoid giving pain reliever for infants less than three months without first consulting with your pediatrician.
