A recent study conducted by the University of Alberta suggests that hospitals that play sweet music to premature babies can help them thrive.  Evidence shows that music aids in faster weight gain and shorter hospital stays.

The study also revealed that calm music encourages better oral feeding and has direct benefits to the heart and respiratory rates.  Continued research will be conducted to further these types of studies, allowing for better knowledge in the care of premature infants.
