What are your favorite songs for singing baby to sleep?

What are some good traditional lullabies and non-traditional sleepytime songs? I need to learn some songs to sing to my baby.

  • my daughter loves the itsy-bitsy spider for some reason. but i also used to sing slower songs that i liked. i don't think it matters to them, as long as they get to hear your soothing voice :)

  • My DH sings her "you are my sunshine" (his late godmother used to sing it to him) She seems to like "Edelweiss" from Sound of Music. But anything is good. Sing her/him something you like and she/he will love it. I grew up with folk songs, but she dances to Punjabi MC too.
