Over the last 6 months, friends have suggested some awesome baby items. I thought I’d share a few and ask for more suggestions. The first is Jewel’s (Children’s) Radio on Pandora. It obviously features a bunch of Jewel’s songs from her lullaby album. However, there are a bunch more that are calming for both baby and mommy. And I mean calm in a sweet, oh this mom thing is wonderful way. This is versus the first Pandora lullaby station I tried. It had me in tears. The songs were just so…so sad. I was suddenly depressed in the I have no idea why I am crying way. It was a horrible mix with postpartum hormones. I am by no means declaring Jewel’s (Children’s) Radio a cure-all for sleeping. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more to getting a baby to take a decent nap and sleep through the night. However, it is a nice cue that this is sleepy time and it’s pretty music that calms both baby and mommy or daddy. Patch even joins us in Avery’s room at nighttime. We think he will end up sleeping in Avery’s room when she gets a bit older. It’s like he knows that’s where the “kids” belong.
My favorite song is actually off of Jewel’s first album. I guess it’s nice to know an angel is watching over you.
