My husband figured out pretty early on that a certain Van Morrison album (Astral Weeks!) worked like magic to calm Arlo when he got himself worked up. We used to marvel at how quickly it took him from fussy baby to happy music listener. While his inconsolable crying sessions are few and far between these days, it still is obviously one of his favorite records to play in our collection.
I came across this youtube video of a little lady who clearly has strong musical preferences on her own… she’s at the opposite end of the music spectrum from my dear Arlo and his love of folksy Van Morrison but you’ve got to see how adorable her response is!
Does your baby have a favorite song? A favorite album? A favorite genre?
