London: Singing rhymes and lullabies to babies makes them smile more and communicate better, a study has found. Researchers discovered that the infant brain - before babies can even walk or talk - is particularly responsive to music.

Babies exposed to it were found to be easier to soothe and more likely to communicate with signals such as pointing at objects and waving goodbye.

"There are many ways that parents can connect with their babies," a daily quoted Andrew Unrau, research coordinator for the study at Canada's McMaster University, as saying.

"The great thing about music is that everyone loves it and everyone can learn simple interactive musical games together," he added.
