Just wondering what other moms sing to their children that is their baby's favorite! Just a fun post!

My son's favorite (although my singing stinks---he loves it) is "You Are My Sunshine".

How about you? :)

Twinkle, twinkle little star! I just found an amazing new version on www.cdbaby.com/cd/apolloniavanova. The whole album is really good - unusual and haunting.

My daughter Chloe (4) loves The Itsy Bitsy Spider. I have to sing it over and over agin. She just loves it especially when I run my fingers up and down her belly and back like a spider. It really relaxes her.

I made up a song with my DD's name in it and have been singing it to her since she has been in my belly and now that she's beginning to respond to my voice this song really calms her down. Hopefully she will remember the song I wrote for forever : )

Baby Beluga is my little one's favourite song EVER. It has been since he was probably 2 months old. Now he's one. My husband sings funny words to any old tune, and he likes that, too. :)

Since my son was born, whenever he would be inconsolable I would sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". I still sing it to him, especially when he's upset! :) Thanks for the fun post.

This post is fun I have to agree. My son loves when I sing the theme song from The Golden Girls, I have sang it to him since birth and it calms him down very quickly. He also loves Miley Cyrus "The Climb" , my daughter is obsessed with Hannah Montana"Miley Cyrus" so we here it alot and everytime he hears it he just sits and listens and if we are in the car he is so quiet when it is on the radio. My daughter loves all music she's 4 1/2 so I dont sing to her often she is usually the one singing, she even sings the Golden Girls song to her brother when he's crying in the morning, she goes in there before we get him from his crib and sings it to him and it works everytime.

My baby doesn't "do" lullabies. Her favourite song is "Row, row, row the boat..." She'll clamber onto my knee, grab my hands and frantically rock back and forth until I sing for her, and then I have to keep going for hours!

My 6 week old quiets down and falls asleep when I sing "Dream A Little Dream of Me" by Mama Cass Elliott and "Alright for Now" by Tom Petty. Finally someone who likes my singing!

I don't sing to my baby but she does get an earfull of music. She loves "The Movies" by Alien Ant Farm and "I'd Do Anything" by Simple Plan. She stays real quiet, then smiles and starts to coo. She also likes "Make Damn Sure" by Taking Back Sunday. Maybe she "remembers" it from inside the womb. LOL

Heh, I've been singing my girl an old song that I learnt at primary school (with actions that make her giggle):

Hey look me over (hand to her brow)
Lend me an ear (touch her ear)
Fresh out of clover (arms over her head)
Mortgaged up to here (arms to her shoulders)

Don't pass the plate, folks (arm to the left)
Don't pass the cup (arm to the right)
I figure whenever you're down and out (bend over)
The only way is up (arms over her head)

And I'll be up, like a rosebud
High on the vine (wave arms)
Don't thumb your nose, bud (tickle her nose)
Take a tip from mine (touch my nose)

I'm a little bit short of the elbow room
But let me get you some (wiggle arms side to side)
Hey look out world,
Here I come (Arms up in the air)

She stops crying when I sing it to her, so I figure she must like it, despite the fact that I can't sing in tune! And the actions make her giggle

Before that, I was singing Hush Little Baby, but I could never remember the words.

My lil boy Cody ( 6 months ) is not a super fan of lullabies etc. His favourite songs that he really gets excited about are " Bubbly by Colbie Collait", and "Better in Time by Leona Lewis". Anytime they come on the radio etc his lil face just lights up!!

Quoting Limara:

Well, Ollie (my 9 month old) is only happy if you sing songs from his favourite tv programs e.g. In The Night Garden, Numberjacks etc. My daughter (2 and half years) will not allow me to sing anything ("No mummy, stop singing") but knows pretty much all nursery rhymes herself anyway, again from watching CBeebies, Her most "favouritest song in the whole widest world" is Pokerface by Lady GaGa



My LO really enjoys fast paced music also. I sing that song to her a lot when we play. I usually change the words to include her name or what we are doing.

Never go to Work by They Might be Giants. Yeah, it is kind of a stupid song, but it has a catchy tune. If she is really fussy that song never fails!!
