You don’t need to be talented to sing your baby to sleep because there are so many songs out there that can do that for you. Singing is a great way to create a bonding between you and your child, and that is also an easy way to soothe a baby. However, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” has become a bit common and boring now. So, it is better to find some new lullabies that will help your child fall asleep quickly. Here I have rounded up some all-time favorite baby sleep songs including “Hush, Little Baby” and “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.” So, check out these beautiful songs from the list given below.
1-“Hush, Little Baby”
“Hush, Little Baby” starts with these opening lines:
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird…
I love this song because the songlines promise that you will be there with the baby no matter what. And it is a classic lullaby song, so you can feel the rhythm and sing it to your baby girl.
Classic french lullabies are cool, and this one is technically a morning song rather than a baby sleep song. However, many people think that “Frère Jacques” is a lullaby and who do you want to argue? You can sing it softly, and it will instantly put your baby to sleep. The opening lines of the song are,
Frère Jacques, frère Jacques,
However, you won’t get it what the singer is saying unless you know French, of course.
3-“Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral (That’s an Irish Lullaby)”
It is an Irish baby sleep song which was written in 1913, and its subtitle was “That’s an Irish Lullaby.” It sounds like a folk song which Irish people used to sing back then. And the song did not indeed become a lullaby until moms started to sing it to their half-asleep babies. After generation, it became one of the most favorite baby songs, and it comes with a giggle-worthy chorus.
4- Baby Sleep Songs: “Cradle Song”
There are so many lullabies available on the internet, and this one is my favorite. Some people call it “Brahms’ Lullaby,” composed by Johannes Brahms. You may have heard the melody but don’t know the lyrics already.
5-Baby Sleep Songs: “Rock-a-bye Baby”
Well, this one is probably the most famous lullaby of all time. It is not a Pitbull song, but somewhat catchy like that. It is the Mother Goose melody from the 18th century, and the lyrics are slightly weird but do their job, anyway.
So, among these five baby sleep songs, which one are you going to sing tonight? You can also play some soothing music instead of songs that will help your baby fall asleep quickly. Songs sometimes don’t work on naughty babies, and when they don’t want to sleep at all. So in that case, instead of using baby sleep songs, tell him a story while playing a baby sleep music in the background.
