If you want your kids to fall asleep quickly and have sweet dreams, we recommend lullabies which are in the genre of children’s music. After all, you need to play something which is appropriate for your child! Adult music often have rude lyrics and it may be too aggressive to soothe babies and little kids.
Whether you’re playing music on a CD player (or online) or singing music that you’ve heard, it’s best to stick with music which is made just for children.
Lullabies are soft and gentle and they are made for little ones. A lullaby will be melodic and repetitive enough to make a child feel good inside. It will help him or her to relax.
Other fine choices include soft and gentle classical music. Some classical music, such as Mozart, is known for its ability to help children become more intelligent! However, some Mozart tunes may be a bit too lively or melancholy for kids who need to nap or go to bed. Chopin is typically quite gentle in spirit and it may be a good choice when you’re trying to put a tot or infant to sleep.
Avoid Loud Music at Bedtime
Whatever you decide to play, play it softly. Loud music will wake a child up, even if it’s a loud lullaby. Keep volume low, so it’s audible but not too distracting. It should provide relaxing background sound which helps the child to forget about the day that has passed and move into a sleepy state. When it comes to volume, keep it low at all times – sing along gently in order to add a personal touch. It might be a good idea to look for DJ speakers for high quality sound in your baby’s room.
The lullabies that parents sing to their kids at bedtime are often songs which are beloved by kids and remembered fondly by grown-up kids. Repetition is helpful, so find a lullaby that your child loves and then sing it nightly. It will become a part of the special bond between you and your son or daughter.
Sometimes, Disney songs work well as lullabies. For example, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, from the Toy Story group of movies, is a great song with a positive and inspiring message and its tune and lyrics are simple to remember.
Cuddling with your child as you sing will help him or her to feel safe and loved. So, why not choose a special lullaby and then lie beside your little one as you sing?
