Disney has a way of tugging at all my tender parts with their music and messages, just the theme song from Up leaves me curled up on the verge of the ugly cry. Add in tender lyrics to all that Disney magic? It’s over, I’m done.
While there are plenty of classic lullabies out there, none appeal to me as much as the sweet songs from classic and modern Disney movies. I have sung all of them to both my babies and each of them has a special song that will always epitomize their babyhood in my mind.
Here are the best Disney lullabies to add to your nighttime routine with your little star sweeper.

"I See the Light" from Tangled 2 of 9
I dare you to sing this one to your baby on a dark quiet night during those first few weeks together. I DARE YOU. I still cry every time I hear it, change the meaning around and sing it to my baby? So much weeping.
Try to ignore the super sad part in Toy Story 2 when Jessie is left alone in a box at the side of the road and think about your own little girl growing up and LEAVING YOU. That's much less sad. Oh, wait...
If this one doesn't leave you a weeping mess in the rocking chair something is clearly wrong with you. I sang this song to Addie every. single. night. for at least six years. In fact, I sang it to her so much I feel like I'm cheating on her if I sing it to Vivi.
This is Vivi's song, partly because it's just as good as "Baby Mine," and partly because Mary Poppins is one of the best movies in the world and also because who doesn't love a little reverse psychology with their lullaby?
I've sang this one to both babies. It's another one that leaves me a weepy mess, even the Phil Collins version makes me feel things. (Which is probably the only time Phil Collins does such a thing to anyone.)
