despite research that claims parents favour pop songs to sing to their babies to send them to sleep. Infacol, a specialist in tummy care surveyed 2,353 parents and found that only 1% would choose to sing a pop song compared to 59% who would stick to old classics such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or Hush Little Baby to sing their baby to sleep.
Richard Jenkinson of Lullaby Babies commented “I’m pleased to see these classic lullabies are at the top of the charts where they belong! Theses songs are hundreds of years old and have been passed down from generation to generation. I think it’s important that new parents continue this tradition by lulling their baby to sleep with the same songs their parents and grandparents used to sing to them.”
I personally used Swing Low Sweet Chariots quite alot!!!! but also Twinkle Twinkle is still a favourite of ours. Let me know what you think………………… are you a lullaby or pop song parent?
