Music In Medicine
New York Presbyterian Hospital, among others nationwide, is using music in their neo-natal wards to increase the health of the babies.

The babies sleep better and gain weight faster, and are able to leave the hospital sooner. I guess it’s true that music does indeed “sooth the savage breast.”
