On second night of night weaning 10 month old DS. Up for two hour marathon last night singing awful medley of things with made-up words. Tonight I chanced upon 'Swing low, sweet chariot'. Minimal words to remember with tired brain, not too high and can be sung on loop like a chant. He's asleep now within hour of waking.What's your go-to song?
Brahms' lullaby sung with random DD related words. Until she got older and I bought her a book with it in. Elmo was asleep in the picture and it made her cry. No idea why. But we can't sing it any more.
DS's is Hush little baby - with made up words. Even at 6 a few bars of this calms down pretty much any worry DDs is Que Sera, Sera. She loves the last verse "when I had children of my own...." She calls it the "mummy song"
Hush little baby is dds - long enough to not have jerky breaks but also short enough to repeat for half an hour without considering my own death
Ds loves john jacob jingleheimer schmidt and i'm elmo and i know it elmo settled him at around 3 months old and still does a year later
We still have it <siob> on both laptops as a favourite, the downloaded video from clip.dj and the mp3 on both laptops plus video and mp3 on our mobiles and it's still my ringtone.. on top of that it's the first thing youtube shows me when i go on ds was difficult to settle..
