According to the British study that was conducted in 2013, 10 minutes of soothing baby sleep music reduces pain levels and heart rate speed in each baby. This information is really helpful to all the new parents who have a hard time putting their baby to sleep. Sleep-deprived parents try different methods from playing lullabies and sound machines to putting blackout curtains and riding a baby in a stroller for hours.

Although sometimes none of this help, choosing the right baby music songs will definitely help you calm your baby and send it to the dreamland. Also, singing a lullaby to your little one establishes a stronger bond between the two of you. The song makes your baby feel secure and cared for and it sends a signal that it is time for a bed.

Here are top 5 lullaby songs every parent should learn:

Brahms Lullaby (Lullaby and Good Night)

 

 

Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight

With lilies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and good night, thy mother’s delight

Bright angels beside my darling abide

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

 

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

 

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high

There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue

And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Away above the chimney tops

That’s where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly

Beyond the rainbow

Why, oh why, can’t I?

 

 Itsy-Bitsy Spider

 

The itsy-bitsy spider

Climbed up the water spout

Down came the rain

And washed the spider out

Out came the sun

And dried up all the rain

And the itsy-bitsy spider

Climbed up the spout again

 

Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.

Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won’t sing,

Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,

Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,

Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won’t pull,

Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull fall down,

You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town

 

Baby Mine

 

Baby mine, don’t you cry

Baby mine, dry your eyes

Rest your head close to my heart

Never to part, baby of mine.

Little one when you play

Pay no heed what they say

Let your eyes sparkle and shine

Never a tear, baby of mine.

If they knew all about you

They’d end up loving you too

All those same people who scold you

What they’d give just for

The chance to hold you.

From your head to your toes

Your not much, goodness knows

But your so precious to me

Sweet as can be, baby of mine

 

Fortunately, with the global expansion of the Internet, you have access to all the soothing baby sleep music that you can play to your sweet pea in case you cannot remember the words of a lullaby or are too tired to sing.
