Lullaby lyrics that your baby will love

Parents have been singing lullabies to their children for centuries- and science shows why. Several studies suggest that lullabies not only help improve infant sleep quality but also reduce parental stress! That’s because your baby loves to hear the soothing sound of your voice and the gentle melodies of the lullabies. Here are some of our favorites that you can sing along to.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star 

Why we love it: 

We had to include this classic. It’s a nice and gentle tune to play while your baby is getting ready for bed. 

How it begins: 

“Twinkle, twinkle, little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky…” 

Hush Little baby

Why we love it: 

We love the message that parents will do anything they can to make sure their baby is happy. What a sweet lullaby. 

How it begins: 

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.

Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird 

And if that mockingbird won’t sing,

Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring


Somewhere Over the Rainbow 

Why we love it: 

This dreamy tune made famous by Wizard of Oz was not originally written as a lullaby but it definitely makes for a great one. 

How it begins: 

“Somewhere over the rainbow

Way up high

There's a land that I heard of

Once in a lullaby…”

Silent Night 

Why we love it: 

This holiday tune is soothing and calming for you and your baby. It’s perfect to play when you want to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. 

How it begins: 

“Silent night, holy night, 

All is calm, all is bright…” 

Sweet Dreams (Goodnight Song) 

Why we love it: 

This song is specifically written for baby’s bedtime. It’s sweet, soothing, and when your baby is older, they can even join in on the song. 

How it begins: 

“Goodnight to you, goodnight to me, 

Now close your eyes and go to sleep. 

Goodnight, sleep tight, sweet dreams tonight…” 

Lullabies are not only great for soothing your baby, they also play an important role in language development. Your baby will grow attached to one or two of their favorite songs and learn to sing along with you!
