Green Day for your baby!
on December 30, 2009
We started playing music in our infant's nursery after our first visit to his daycare, where we noticed them playing music in the crib room to provide white noise for the sleeping babies. The idea of a lullaby-ized version of music we already enjoy listening to appealed to us, so we started out with a couple of the titles in the Rockabye baby series. We've enjoyed them so much that we're now up to ~15 of these, if for no other reason than to provide US with some variety as we rock our child before putting him down for the night. By removing the words and playing the songs at a more or less constant volume, they provide a soothing bedtime experience without the sudden changes in volume and tempo that might otherwise startle or excite a child that you're trying to get (and then keep) asleep.
My wife is a fan of Green Day's music, and we have both enjoyed the Rockabye baby take on their music. Although it is not our favorite of the 15 we have (the Coldplay CD continues to rank #1 in our house), it is certainly one of the more frequent choices for bedtime, and a great way to get your infant started on Green Day. I would also highly recommend the Led Zeppelin, Queen, Rolling Stones, More Beatles (the first one is not as good), Beach Boys, and Guns N' Roses CDs for people interested in trying out the series.
