Whether you're someone who turns the radio on the moment she gets in the car or someone who hasn't cared about music since Justin left the Backstreet Boys for his solo career, it's worth exposing your baby to music at an early age.
Luckily, there are lots of ways to do just that, even if you aren't glued to American Idol three nights a week.
Here are a few:
"Mommy & Me" or Daddy & Me" type music groups can be a lot of fun for both you and baby and a great way to socialize with other adults while learning about rhythm and music. Not to mention that it's a scheduled activity that gets you out of the house and on your way.
