That's when they reckon the baby can hear sounds like blood moving through the placenta, mummy's tummy rumbling etc. It's a few more weeks before it can hear noises outside the womb!

To the OP, I'd just let your OH sing his heart out regardless of whether the baby can actually hear it or not!

i think its 17 or 18 weeks when they can hear outside. but dont let him stop! that's something wonderful... letting the baby get to know his voice too so sweet.

I read from 16 weeks the baby can hear as although they have fully formed ears quite sometime before, it takes til 16 weeks for the inner ear bones to harden and form sounds. From 16-20 weeks baby will recognise familiar voices like you or your partners or pieces of music you play frequently.
My Boyfriend talks to baby in baby talk that even i can't understand so god help our little one lol xxxxxxxx
