Playlist for Baby: Unconventional Lullabies

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

To Make You Feel My Love, Adele
