Research shows that music stimulates a baby’s brain and helps them learn. Mommy Jingles is an online music class that teaches busy moms how to introduce music to their children (ages 0-3) throughout the day. Mommy Jingles turns every day tasks, like changing diapers, into quality moments with your child. Upon signing up parents receive weekly “lessons” for 8 weeks. Each week includes MP3’s of the jingles, reminder cards with lyrics written down, and Amy demonstrating the songs and movements. Here is a list of what you will get each week:

What this mommy thinks:
Wow! There is so much information to take in. We are still going through all of it but I wanted to share what I have found so far:
As a previous preschool teacher I didn’t know how much I would get out of this class but I am learning a lot from Amy’s ideas. Jacob has a very hard time transitioning and I have been using some of the things that I learned during week 2 with him and it seems to be helping him. I love that there are lyrics that can be printed out for those days when we, as moms, can barely remember our child’s name. I am also so grateful that they added videos for those of us with “slower” computers :)
