Does your baby 'dance'? How can I encourage this?

My DS is 6.5mos. and he love music. Any and all music. Does anyone have suggestions of types of (non annoying music) I could buy for him? And/or educational music?

  • I just think you should let him listen to whatever you listen too. I was going to say they have a CD with a mix of kids songs but you said nothing annoying and those get annoying very fast.

  • We have the CD - Wee sing for Baby.
    I also have Laurie Berkner, and a 3 CD set of Toddler Songs.

    My babies also loved my music too -so sometimes it's fun to break out the Ipod and have him listen to some oldies. LOL

  • We just play everything for him. Classical music, especially Mozart, is supposed to stimulate brain development. Luckily we like Mozart. I avoid kiddy music (Kids Bop and that kind of crap) like the plague, and having been raised on good music even my kids don't like it. We do have a lot of standard kids songs but done by really good musicians, like the Dave Grisman and Jerry Garcia album Not For Kids Only.

  • I LOVED Laurie Berkner when my kids were small. Also Free To Be You and Me is great. We have an old Sesame Street tape that all 3 of my kids loved (me too!).
