Babies Love Lullabies at Bedtime

For centuries it has been well known that baby sleep lullaby music is the perfect way to help babies to relax and fall asleep easily. All new parents are really keen to understand the secrets of success where sleep for their baby is concerned as they soon discover how fractious a tired baby can be and how long the days can be when you have to survive on very little sleep and one gaze in the mirror confirms the fact that you are beginning to look like a panda!

Baby sleep lullaby music can be traced back to ancient times and lullabies exist in nearly every culture.

Lullabies are often referred to as ‘cradle songs’ because they were often sung as the cradle was gently rocked and even today, many parents sing to their baby as they gently rock them in their arms – a movement that reminds the baby of being in the womb. In some countries, babies are strapped to0 their mother’s side and the movement of them walking as they sing to their baby has a very soporific effect!  In France the lullaby is a berceuse, whilst in Germany it is a wiegenlied. In Spain mothers will sing a canciÓn de cuna to their baby and in Hindi and other Indian languages the lullaby is known as a ‘lori’. In most countries, lullabies are handed down from one generation to the next and are seen as an important part of the nation’s culture.

Around the globe, parents firmly believe that baby sleep lullaby music is a very special thing to share with their baby and that really helps them to bond with their baby. In fact, research has shown that lullabies help the baby to develop a love for music and to associate music with pleasurable happy times
