The other day I realized Radiohead is great for babies. I think it's the combination of Thom Yorke's distorted lyrics, dreamy melodies, and the white noise that accompanies the music often. Kai fell asleep instantly to "Hail to the Thief"
But props to J for getting his hands on these two great finds that will help your baby fall asleep:
1) Lullabies for a Small World (compilation by Ellipses Arts):
Great for the baby and you. My favorite track is number 3- Flor E Estrela - Teresa Ines. This song is so magical and puts the whole family in a deep slumber.
2)While roaming around at the Ecology Center in Berkeley, he stumbled upon this children's book: Talking Walls Written by Margy Burns Knight and Illustrated by Anne Sibley O'Brien.
It's the perfect multi-cultural book that illustrates how walls around the world may unite or divide communities around the world. I guarantee that you'll learn some history as well.
