When can babies hear external voices/noise in the womb?
Hello again...I'm thread crazy today!
I am wondering when unborn babies are able to hear external voices, etc... My 8 year old has been talking to my belly for weeks now...I wonder when bubs will hear her? Also I want to play music to my belly, like I did with my DD (actually it was more talk radio...ya I'm a nerd), but this time I'm thinking Classical piano stuff.
my baby is 25 weeks and he really is starting to react to sounds he gets very excited at big sisters voice !!! he loves music with a beat especially queen radio gaga !!!! he gets giddy at that!!! oh and my mum slamed the door earlier and he jumped a mile !!!!!
The earliest I've read it is possible is 15 weeks to hear YOUR voice and between 16 1/2 to 20 weeks to hear other people's voices, etc...
It's been a while since I have been pregnant, but I know with my DD, she responded to voices talking to my belly at about 27 to 30 weeks, but she may have heard them earlier, who knows
Thats a good point! I'm sure there has to be a difference between the baby hearing mommy's voice and hearing other peoples voices. Your own voice would be heard much sooner than everybody elses I would imagine... It's resonating in your body no??
