The Best Lullaby | Bedtime Song
7. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"...up above the world so high like a diamond in the sky..." this was sung around the house by me when we had little babies and by my babies once they were old enough to sing & memorize the lyrics. Here is a version by a 7-year-old Youtube singing sensation accompanied by a 5-year-old on a ukulele. Enjoy & you're welcome!6. Hey JudeWritten by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and tweaked for John's son Julian, this is the lullaby my friend Julien was sung as a child by his mother. A very nice bedtime soother, I think & this cover is just breathtaking! Calms my baby (and me) in mere moments, especially when we put on our Boba X carrier and sway to the rythm together.

The Mornings team warns that different children respond well to different songs. (For example, some kids may nod off easily to a hip hop song, while others may find that the genre tends to agitate them at bedtime.)
Most people listen to music throughout their day and often near bedtime to wind down. But can that actually cause your sleep to suffer? When sleep researcher Michael Scullin, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Baylor University, realized he was waking in the middle of the night with a song stuck in his head, he saw an opportunity to study how music -- and particularly stuck songs -- might affect sleep patterns.
"Before bedtime, we played three popular and catchy songs -- Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off,' Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe' and Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'," Scullin said. "We randomly assigned participants to listen to the original versions of those songs or the de-lyricized instrumental versions of the songs. Participants responded whether and when they experienced an earworm. Then we analyzed whether that impacted their nighttime sleep physiology. People who caught an earworm had greater difficulty falling asleep, more nighttime awakenings, and spent more time in light stages of sleep."
