It has been really hard for me to find music appropriate for my babies, it is either too noisy or down right inappropriate. I am excited to say that I have found something that doesn't drive me to pull out my hair, or cover my children's ears. I would love to say that I am the type of mom who sings lullabies, but I am tone deaf and would rather have the CD player do it for me!
Cradle Rock has several mama friendly tunes made from the rhythms of hit songs. And because they are made from people like Kenny Chestney, Micheal Jackson and *My Favorite* Johnny Cash, they are not repetitive and childish like most of the lullaby CD's that I have found. And if you are not tone deaf like I am and you are familiar with the music you can make your own lyrics. They recently announced on their website that coming soon they will have titles including the Eagles, Black Eyed Peas, U2, Carrie Underwood, and Pink Floyd!
These also would be great stocking stuffers for Mama's to be, or the new Mama's & Babes in your life! Or maybe Pop-pop would enjoy some good tunes from Johnny Cash?
So the three CD's I got are not only fun for my kid's to listen to, but have adorable titles. Michael Jackson "Thrillaby" is a little too upbeat for my kids to nap to, but great lunchtime music. Johnny Cash "I Crawl The Line" is borderline. If you have heavy sleepers, go ahead and put it on. It is pretty relaxing, but some of the songs tend to be a little too "thunky" to sleep to. Kenny Chestney "No Shoes, No Diaper... Might be a problem." *My favorite title* is GREAT for nap time, and my sons favorite to listen to *Finally, GOODBYE KizBop!*
Too sample the music, simply go to the website http://www.cradlerockstore.com/ and click on one of the title's. It will bring you to a separate screen where you will get to choose any of the songs to listen to. Now be open minded when you start to listen, they are kind of new age-ish instrumentals and can take a minute for your ears to adjust.
