Music to Soothe the Savage Baby: Tunes that Calm My Little One

Unbaby music to calm my baby

Unbaby music to calm my baby

Music is always in the air in some room of our house. While neither my husband or I can carry a tune – we have a passion for great random music that we have forcefully pushed on our kids. Because, you know we are that kind of parent.

One of our favorite baby finds was an MP3 player that snaps onto our baby’s crib. Each night, we play DJ cranking up the noise, lulling our crying baby to sleep. (And yes, our baby is now in the phase of SLEEP? I don’t want no stinkin’ sleep.)

Here are 8 of our favorite tunes to spin for our baby:

Music to Soothe Baby to Sleep

Beautiful Things - by Gungor

Zeke was born to this song. I tear up everytime I hear it. I am crying as I type this (can you tell I am still a hormonal mess?)

    Love Beautiful Things! And yes I also have tears rolling down my cheeks now as I snuggle my little guy closer- I have to go back to work tomorrow and am having a hard time dealing with it. We listen to all kinds of music with our little one too. He seems to especially enjoy The Weepies and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. We also have several of the Rockabye Baby CDs that we all like to listen to!

    Not a song per-say but still soothes my children, (my unborn, my 21 month old and my 11 year old,) I soothe my kids with Native American drum music. Black Lodge and Seekaskooch are the drum groups most popular with them and Black Lodge even does songs just for children. My 21 month old even learned to walk listening to drum music and when he doesn’t want to sleep at night we just put the drum music in and turn off the lights…out he goes and even we can sleep and meditate to it. My husband and I are part native so the music is spiritual to us also.
