Certified baby lullaby albums are very nice at times. But sometimes, it's nice to listen to tunes that don't use words like, "sparkling cow, rubber ducky" or "twinkle." sleepy time Your baby will never know if you slip in some grown up tunes. He may even love it. I listened to Joni Mitchell throughout my entire pregnancy (loudly) and I swear my son took to it from the womb. After he was born I could stop him from crying by simply singing a Joni song. Really. It was amazing. Especially when you consider that singing is not one of my top 100 talents. I'm obsessed with oldies but there are some great newer albums that will suit sleep time as well. Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan, Ben Harper, John Mayer, and many more. Look and see what kind of soothing music you may already have in your collection. Here are some older music album ideas that you and your baby might enjoy. Anything by Joni Mitchell (you knew I'd go there). However, for those of you unfamiliar with my main girl, I'd try For the Roses or Blue. Both are nice and calm. Pink Moon by Nick Drake: Drake wrote very relaxing music. And this CD is short too; perfect timing for getting baby to sleep. You may think you don't know his music but I'll bet you do. Click on the link and listen to the title track at Amazon. I promise, some of you will recognize him. Nina: The Essential Nina Simone: Beautiful voice, beautiful tunes, what more can you say? Or try these traditional but more grown-up lullaby albums.  In the Arms of Love: Lullabies 4 Children + Adults Mediterranean Lullaby Brazilian Lullaby Planet Sleeps Which 'grown-up' albums does your little one enjoy?
