Do you use music to help your baby fall asleep? How do you use it? Do you keep it playing the whole time or only for a short period? During naps and at night? What music do you play? Any other tips that you think might be useful for someone to know?
My 11 month old son is starting to have a lot of trouble settling down for naps (he's just way too interested in getting up to play!) so I'm thinking about using music to help set more of a calming "sleep-time" atmosphere. Right now, before each nap we read n the livingroom (to start the calming), and then move into his room, close a curtain, turn on a fan (white noise), read a special bed-time book while I gently bounce him (he's soothed by bouncing), and then I put him in his crib while going "shhhh" and rubbing his back. The night routine is similar but starts with PJ's and toothbrushing. This used to work, but not so much anymore. :) I need stronger ammo. Any ideas?

Baby-Go-To-Sleep tape. It has lullabies played and sung slowly to the rhythm of the heartbeat played in the background. It works so well, I would not suggest ever playing it in the car while driving. LOL
