Can anyone suggest a song to sing/hum to my infant at naptime/bedtime?

I'm running out of song ideas and there are only so many songs I can make up. haha

  • I used to sing Lullabye in Blue to my cousin's kids (when I babysat them) and then to my own kids.

  • you are my sunshine, lullaby and goodnight, this little light of mine, you can really use any song, I also make up my own songs personalized for the babies, my kids love it, having there names in there. Twinkle twinkle little star. Google lullabies Im sure you will find a ton.

  • This may sound crazy, but I was the same way one day, and started singing the Oscar Mayer ads from tv. My balogna has a first name, it's O s c a r, my balogna has a second name it's M a y e r. Oh I love to eat it every day, this is why I have to say, that Oscar Mayer has a way with b a l o g n a. It worked. He went to sleep. From then on, that's what I sang him. Second favorite became. Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer weiner. That is what I truly like to be. For if I were an Oscar Mayer weiner, Everyone would be in love with me.
