  • I always have sung to my kids. Favorites for bedtime - Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Lullaby and Good Night, You Are My Sunshine, Row Row Row Your Boat, Jesus Loves Me. I don't sing to my 13, 10, or 9 year old anymore but I do still sing to my 22 month old and my 2 month old.

  • My middle son Noah would not sleep as a baby unless we put the song 'Lullaby' by Creed on constant loop on the CD player. Over and over all night long...
    He also loved those nature CD's with the ocean sounds.

  • Amazing Grace. My little girl has always fallen asleep to amazing grace- all three verses. I have a niece who I have watched many many a time though and her song is Ricordo Ancor- also known as Pelagia's Song from Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Its a beautiful Italian Song. When i have my son though I have already decided that his lullaby will be Hoist the Colors. Oh yes, pirates baby!
