Rockabye Baby review & giveaway

Photobucket

"Golden slumbers await your little pride and joy at the end of lullaby road. The Beatles are the most famous songwriters of the twentieth century. Their songs are known by people of all ages here, there, and everywhere. The dreamy quality of their later work provides the blueprint for these beautiful lullaby interpretations. It will glide your little one out across the universe, through an octopus’s garden, and lay them down in a slumberland of strawberry fields."
{see complete album info here.}

When Stacie from Rockabye Baby contacted me about doing a blog review, I couldn't be more thrilled. Elliot falls asleep to music every night, and since he still sleeps in my room, that means I do, too. I was getting awfully tired of the common, overdone nursery rhyme lullabies.
Rockabye Baby does musical lullaby renditions of popular rock groups. If you didn't already guess by my blog title, I'm a huge Beatles fan- so of course, as soon as I saw that they had a Beatles edition, I had to try it out! It was EXACTLY what we needed- a fun, fresh alternative to traditional lullabies. Several of my favorite Beatles songs, including "Hey Jude" and our blog's namesake- "Here Comes the Sun" were included and I found myself humming along to most of the songs. Elliot seems to really love it! I've put it on for a few nights in a row now and several naps- and he's asleep in no time. Sometimes, when he wakes up, he just lays peacefully in his crib enjoying the soothing music.
Of course, if you're not a Beatles fan, there are plenty of other options... Bob Marley, ACDC, U2, Aerosmith, and Coldplay, just to name a few.
