The shows have become a huge hit with new moms keen on a change of scenery and the chance to treat their offspring to an injection of culture.

In England, parents can now swap screams and tantrums for Bach and Beethoven at a series of classical concerts, appropriately named For Crying Out Loud, aimed at parents of young tots! And you don’t even need to worry about squeezing your stroller into an uncomfortable theater seat – the venue, London’s Wigmore Hall, lays on play mats for your tiny to to relax in comfort. How awesome is that?

The soothing chamber music, performed by musicians from London’s Royal Academy of Music, last just 45 minutes, meaning the shows are short enough to fit in between feedings. And there’s changing facilities provided, in case your little music-lover gets a little too relaxed!

Organizers boast the shows not only help to calm irritated tots – classical music is proven to have a soothing effect on babies – they make them smarter too! A study in California back in the 1990s discovered listening to Mozart’s music makes babies brainier!

Study – Breastfed Boys Are Smarter!

But the best thing about the concerts is they’re free for babies – with tickets just $10 for adults! The next For Crying Out Loud will take place at Wigmore Hall on January 19th, so all you British HollyMoms better go buy tickets!
