My son was getting fussy so I turned on music specifically Mariah Carey supernatural it features her twins. Well my son got super quiet and within 5 mins he was asleep, idk what it is about this song but my son seems to love it (so do I and so does my daughter).

He doesn't like anybody else I've tried playing different artists for him and he gets mad lol.

So how do you calm your lil ones?

 For my girl, it was the Winnie The Pooh song.  Sometimes I think she was crying BECAUSE she wanted me to sing that song.  Oh...and for my boy, when we'd leave him with a babysitter, we'd put on a video we had that started with a commercial for a Charlie Brown cartoon.  The piano music was so compelling, he would be totally absorbed in it for the 30 second spot.  And because he didn't see us leave, he never cried.

I put them in a bouncy seat right next to the washing machine. The rhythm of it kind of hypnotized them.
