Title Infant Environment Study
Description The overall purpose of this study is to better understand how motivated infants are for food. The results of this study should help to further our understanding of how individuals relate to food and how the environment can change this behavior.

First you will attend three screening appointments to determine your eligibility. If you are eligible, you and your baby will be randomized to the Music Together class or play date group, and you and your baby will be required to attend 37 weekly 45 min sessions. In addition, you will be asked to attend laboratory sessions at 3, 6, and 12 months for one year. After the first year, you will be asked to attend one Music Together class or Play Date session every month, with a laboratory visit at the end of the year.
