We’ve been asked by Pampers to find out which songs get your babies grooving.

Pampers says, "Here at Pampers we know that babies love to get their groove on without a saggy nappy getting in the way. That’s why NEW Pampers Active Fit have Magical Pods, absorbent channels that help to distribute wetness evenly, so they don’t sag and stay up to 2 times drier than the next leading brand. We’d love to hear what song gets your baby moving – let us know by commenting on the thread below. Plus you can try new Pampers Active Fit for free here.

So, do you have a traditional lullaby that your baby loves? Maybe your toddler loves to boogie to the radio, or do you and your DCs even make up your own songs? Perhaps there’s a song that gets everybody moving in your family and you can never get out of your head!

Pampers would also love to hear about the stories behind the song, for example, what made them meaningful in your family, and why you think your baby loves a particular song?

Share the songs that get your babies grooving on this thread, whether they are nursery rhymes, top ten hits or theme tunes from their favourite shows!

Everyone who posts on this thread will be entered into a prize draw to win a £300 Love2Shop voucher!

Thanks and good luck,

When my son was a baby he adored Bob the builder big fish little fish cardboard box.... I liked it at the start but it drove me crazy after a while. Hopefully this one will agree with it's big brother as he knows how to use spotify better than I do!

My DD loves Save Your Kisses For Me by Brotherhood of Man. I am such a sad case though that I changed the lyrics from 'bye bye Baby, bye bye' to 'hello Baby, hello' cause I was worried she might think that I was going leave her blush. I've no idea how it started cause we certainly don't play Brotherhood of Man in our house I'm not that much of a sad case.

My son is 2, and for the last year we've had Chad Kroeger- Hero, the Script- Man who can't be moved and Avril Lavigne- I'm with you on a bedtime loop.

My 5 month old loves Twinkle Twinkle, the 4 year old loves Pulp Babies!

SmallBee Wed 24-Feb-16 15:24:09

DD loves five little monkeys, she keeps changing the words and telling us off if we get them wrong.

My little one is no longer with us but when her Daddy sang to her she loved Swing low sweet chariot
As you may have guessed Daddy is a rugby player

My five month old is instantly calmed if I sing "when I'm gone" from pitch perfect. I was singing it to him on the tube to stop him crying and forgot other people could hear me. I have a face for radio and a voice for a mime..

FeelingSmurfy Wed 24-Feb-16 15:51:57

If you're happy and you know it, because you get to clap and stamp your feet! No other action song can beat clapping and stamping

AGrinWithoutACat Wed 24-Feb-16 15:57:51

DD2 loves "Pop Goes the Weasel" and being tossed up in the air at the pop!

Pinkshire85 Wed 24-Feb-16 15:58:31

Me and my shadow - Robbie Williams from the Swing when you're winning album. I put it on my phone while I'm cooking or getting my daughter ready to go out and she is immediately quiet!

ElectronicDischarge Wed 24-Feb-16 16:15:51

Row row row your boat. And I change the lyrics to include her name. It's a bizarre life saver

gregorsmummy Wed 24-Feb-16 16:16:45

Not so much a song, but a theme tune....... The opening credits from the One Show has him running into the lounge and cutting some shapes whilst loudly singing "Oooooonnnneee, didi didi Dee Dee oooonnnne! Then promptly losing interest and then going back to whatever he was doing!

His most favourite song is colonel Hiathi's March from jungle book grin

Miss polly had a dolly. Sung by me. Over and over and over again.

TheSpottedZebra Wed 24-Feb-16 16:56:35

Horsey Horsey don't you stop was a firm favourite with both my DC.

CopperPan Wed 24-Feb-16 16:59:03

DD loved dancing to Olly Murs Dance with me tonight. It was on the radio all the time when she was little!

Pearlmum1 Wed 24-Feb-16 17:03:50

OhHolyFuck Wed 24-Feb-16 17:06:53

Ds1 (5) loves shake it off by Taylor swift
Ds2 (2.5) jam is milkshake by kelis

My now 5 year old has loved 'the blue danube' waltz since he was a tiny baby. It was the one song that could calm him when he got fractious on car journeys and can still make him sleepy! It was one of the songs that I used to play on the piano when pregnant so wonder if there is a link somehow.

TwigTheWonderKid Wed 24-Feb-16 17:32:57

When he was a baby, my now 10 year old son used to absolutely love Status Quo's Rockin' All Over The World. Thankfully his musical taste has vastly improved since then!
