singing lullabies helped both mine to sleep from very early age - really good for speech and lang dev't, rhythm skills, focused listening, bonding, etc. Interesting website with some Scottish lullabies and lots about why singing to children from very early age is good for them \link{http://kistodreams.org}. Worth a try for a good night's sleep! Mine love a song especially when they're ill.

Mine too highlandmum, ds especially liked one or two and we still have to sing them every night before he goes down (he's almost 2 now)! Will have a look at the site.

I sing a Deneice Williams lullaby to mine. I've sung it to all of them. It does something to me too. I think that singing to children is a great thing to do.
