When I was pregnant with my first child, I read somewhere that once babies were born, they could often be soothed by music that they heard in utero.
That advice turned out to be some of the best that I got during my pregnancy.
We found a lullaby CD that was lovely, but I have to admit, by the time we had used it for both babies, I found myself thinking it would have been nice to choose something a little more adult-friendly.
That CD, though my husband and I grew tired of it, worked like a charm at bedtime and anytime when we just needed to regroup a bit.
If we’re lucky enough to get pregnant again, I’m making a new CD and here’s the playlist that I’ve put together…
At Last, Etta James
Lullaby, Dixie Chicks
Baby Baby, Amy Grant
Satellite, Dave Matthews Band
Everything, Michael Buble
Isn’t She Lovely, Stevie Wonder
Godspeed, Dixie Chicks
Hallelujah, Jeff Buckley
Shower the People, James Taylor
These Are Days, 10,000 Maniacs

Dreamland, Jim Brickman
Satellite, Collective Soul
Sunshine on My Shoulders, John Denver
Come Away with Me, Nora Jones
Baby Mine, Alison Krauss
