My kids and I recently had the chance to review a CD from BeFit-Mom. It's called "Tender Lullabies: Soothing Classic Piano Melodies." It's a bit different from your typical classical music CD. Yes, it contains beautiful music, but for this CD, every song was selected and arranged to be calming and to help put babies to sleep quickly! In fact, every song is played at a resting heart rate tempo. According to the BeFit-Mom website, this slow tempo helps babies calm down and go to sleep faster! Who doesn't love that?!
I really liked this CD and have been enjoying using it with my kids. BeFit-Mom encourages using this CD at naptime and bedtime, so that it becomes a part of your family's routine and so that your child will start hearing the music and associating it with sleepiness. We've been doing that and it does seem to be working! I've also been turning it on on the (incredibly rare, of course!) occasions when Ethan is having a toddler melt-down and has been put in his room to calm down. I find that the music soothes him and helps me get my nice child back fairly quickly! Personally, I really like hearing the CD as well- it helps calm me down when the kids are starting to get me frazzled. So this is a good product for the entire family!
You can buy the CD at the BeFit-Mom website or at amazon.com, cdbaby.com, or diggstation.com. While you're browsing the BeFit-Mom site, check out the other products that it has to offer- the Bounce Back Fast Core Conditioning DVD and a book called Exercise After Pregnancy: How to Look and Feel Your Best. Those both look great as well!
