Piloting Music Therapy Support for Preterm Infant Non-Nutritive Suck and Caregiver

Published in Neonatology Today (Peer Reviewed Research, News and Information in Neonatal and Perinatal Medicine) Volume 14 / Issue 9 | September 2019 “The Pacifier Activated Lullaby (PAL) is an FDA approved device (Standley, 2012). PAL provides developmentally appropriate lullaby music that includes the ability to use the caregiver’s voices and personalized recorded lullabies as a positive reinforcement measure to entrain and reinforce a non-nutritive sucking response among infants in NICU (Standley, 2012).” “ Music Therapists provided caregivers with information regarding infants behavioral signs of overstimulation to music and also signs of a positive response to the music as stimuli." “Of the 95% of the caregivers reported feeling their child had improved oral motor skills needed for feeding with the PAL Music Therapy sessions. Additionally, 98% reported stability and/ or an increase in bonding with their baby during the study. All caregivers (100%) reported increases in music use in their daily routine with their infant and an increase in their involvement in their infant’s care.”
