Newborns “feel less pain” when listening to Mozart during heel prick test

A study suggests that playing Mozart’s Lullaby can help reduce pain in newborns undergoing a heel-prick blood test.

The research involved 100 babies in New York City who received the routine screening test.

Half of the babies listened to an instrumental version of the lullaby before, during, and after the procedure, while the others did not.

Pain levels were assessed based on facial expressions, crying, breathing, limb movements, and alertness.

Babies who listened to the lullaby had significantly lower pain scores during and after the heel prick compared to the group that didn’t listen to the music.
