Lullabies

So I'm not the biggest fan of generic, old school lullabies. I have a few songs picked out that I'm gonna be singing to her, but I'd love to hear some more suggestions and what you ladies plan to sing to yours or already are. :-)

Me too. One of my faves when I was little was house at pooh corner, So I sing that to her a lot and will when she's born. I also like there can be miracles by Mariah Carey, and I'll be there to sing to her.

I like baby mine, but some of the lyrics kind of bothered me since it's about other people not liking him, so I changed them up a bit in certain parts. Lol... I need to look up stay awake bc I don't even remember that one.

I have sung somewhere over the Rainbow to my 3 year old since the day she was born. Now she sings it with me when it's bedtime and even sings it to my belly.

I used to rock my little one while singing James Taylor's 'Sweet Baby James' except I changed it to his name and sang "Sweet Malcolm James" instead. It always worked. Slept like a champ.

It doesn't have to be any specific lullaby. The songs children remember from childhood are the ones that spoke to their little hearts. Like me for example, every time I hear "you are my sunshine" I tear up because my grandma sang it to me before bed every night when I was a baby all the way up to when I was 7-8 and in foster care. She would sing it to me on the phone every night at 8 o'clock. Its not the song but the love in it. So Amy song you find sweet and special your little one will love as well. <3
