lullabies for sleepy babes



Lullabies don't need to be children's songs. I repeat: lullabies don't need to be children's songs! I have created playlists and made CDs for friends having new babies for a couple of years now (check out myownlabels.com to make cute personalized CD labels for gifts) and Ruby is calmed by all sorts of soft songs that don't annoy me (which is important). Granted, anything that you play over and over again might get on your nerves (Jude is especially sensitive to this), so the key is to switch up your playlists from time to time while keeping a couple of favorites mixed in to keep baby's sleep association intact.

Here are some favorites of mine for lullabies:

Winter Song (with Ingrid Michaelson) by Sara Bareilles

Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel) by Billy Joel

Down To The River To Pray by Alison Krauss

Didn't Leave Nobody But The Baby by Emmylou Harris
