Baby Songs that Parents Love Too

KatieMomMoments

My brother recently became a father, and when my eight-month-old nephew came over to visit, I said, "Let's turn on some baby songs for Alex." My brother shot me a glance that said he couldn't take any more baby songs for the day.

"Don't worry," I said. "One of my favorite baby songwriters happens to be a 90s rock star turned kids music genius."

He perked up with curiosity. Don't get me wrong. I've heard my fair share of baby songs that drove me nuts too. There are definitely some baby songs I wish I had never heard. And it's the worst when they play over and over in my head.

But nowadays, we definitely have some great songs to choose from when a lullaby is in order.

Plus, according to science, songs are an important and easy way to connect with your little one. Not only can they be soothing and entertaining, but they will help with important milestones such as talking.

This is no ordinary baby song list. These lullabies and baby songs will actually be something you don't mind popping up on your playlist too!

Baby Songs that Adults Love Too

You are My Sunshine

This version by Jasmine Thompson is perfectly beautiful. This song has a special place in my heart because after giving birth to my second daughter, I started singing it to her a few minutes after she was born. All of her tears stopped, and she was suddenly calm and soothed. There is undoubtedly something magical about this song!

Upside Down

This song was produced by Jack Johnson for the film Curious George, and it was an instant hit. This upbeat lullaby even hit #38 on the Billboard Top 100, and it's not hard to see why!

Run Baby Run

If you think the singer of this song sounds familiar, there's a good reason. Chris Ballew, a 90s rock star singer of The Presidents of the United States of America, has a much younger audience now. Now as Caspar Babypants, he is singing to children and their parents, and we think he's still just as awesome!

I Sing You a Song

This lullaby by Curtis King and Dee Cartensen is one that leaves you with all the feel good thoughts and warm fuzzies. It is a perfect lullaby.

Nichole Nordeman sings this enchanting song that you just might need to grab a tissue for. The message is so true and beautiful.

Little One

Charlie Hope sings this beautifully soothing song which is a perfect lullaby for bedtime. We love listening to it over and over and using it to wind down and relax.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

This whimsical version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star by Jewel is a nice soothing rendition of the song we all know by heart. And my own toddler loves to sing along with it.

Finding a perfect baby song or lullaby just got a lot easier, and I'd love to hear about your favorite!

These are great! We usually listen to music while we're getting ready for bed and I let the kids pick the songs...maybe I'll make some suggestions. :)
