  • There were times when our baby would only sleep when we sang the ant song (you know, the ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah). We would change the words around to entertain ourselves.
    If you are thinking about recorded music, anything from Putomayo World Music

  • I bought the rock a bye baby by Tool. They have all kinds of artist like Greenday and Led Zepplin. They take their songs and turn them into lullabies without the lyrics.

  • I sing "Baby Mine" every night to my daughter and she has gotten to the point that she "sings" along. It is by Bett Midler or LeeAnn Womack. It was in the movie Beaches and Dumbo.
