I do listen to soothing music sometimes to fall asleep. I have a baby's classical music cd that I like.

I began listening to soft music at bed time about 10 years ago. It really helps me relax before sleeping. I'm beginning to do this for my 15 mo. old little boy to help him go to sleep.

I enjoy relaxing to Enya, Fairy Nightsongs, and a Hewlett Crist CD called Rio Grande songs - all accoustic guitar. My grandbabies love listening to music and have always gone to sleep to a variety of tunes...as well as spoken words. Nothing made them (or my now 26 year old son) go to sleep faster than listening to a narrated set of Eric Carle stories. My older son also liked to listen to Carly Simon Live when he was 3 to get to sleep :-) We love sleeping to music!

I love listening to music as I drift to sleep...my favorite is quiet and moody like Portishead or similar.

I have worked in an all day preschool program & the children have a daily rest time. I have one Putumayo CD that I like to put on during this time. It is VERY relaxing for the children and the adults! I look forward to experiencing the other selections.

No, I don't like to actually fall asleep to music but I do love relaxing music; mellow stuff by James Taylor, Enya, so many different artists!

We love listening to a variety of music at bedtime (anytime for that matter) But, currently my son is enjoying the piano being played by his big sis. :)

I'm looking forward to introducing these beautiful songs to my little ones. Anything that can help sleep along is welcome in my home these days.

Who doesn't need help these days relaxing and unwinding after a stressful day. Lately I've been playing a Secret Garden mix on Pandora.

I love Putumayo CDs and so does my 11-month-old son, his favourites being Animal Playground and French Playground. Before each naptime, I like to create a nice relaxing atmosphere for him by playing either one of Putumayo Lounge CDs or some jazz music (Diana Krall, Hedvig Hanson etc), but I would definately like to check out Dreamlands as well, as I am sure my son would enjoy their music!

My 3 year old little son and my husband both need soft tranquil instrumental music to fall asleep. I, on the other hand, will fall asleep anywhere at any point regardless of noise or music. I do love to listen to soft instrumental music when I relax or meditate. My favorite songs are from Enigma. I often listen to Pandora radio.

I could use music like this to play with my preschool kids during transitions, to helo them ease into the next activity, or cool down after a busy recess!! I wish I'd known about this when my own son was little!

Music from Lullaby: A Collection is the soundtrack from my early days as a new mother cradling an infant who refused to sleep any place other than my arms. More than eight years later, I still find the music from this CD soothing, if not to my child, at least to my frayed nerves as I negotiate different parenting challenges.

Putumayo has great collections of ethnic/world music performers. Any songs with soothing melodies can be arranged to make good bedtime music. I don't use music myself to go to sleep [I sometimes do reiki self-treatment to prepare to sleep]though it helps a lot of people. If I did use music for sleep I'd want something ambient and mesmerizing, with binaural tones embedded to help slow down brainwaves.

Well, I can't seem to get Plain White T's "Rhythm of Love" out of my head lately, and that one is totally kick-back. I love acoustic music; before my husband was my husband, he would (and still does, on occasion) play his guitar and sing quietly as it relaxed both of us. Now our daughter is 4, and is a natural music lover like her parents. I have Putumayo World Playground that has charmed children under my care for years. Hoping to pick up several more albums (Hawaiian, as is hub's heritage, for one). So enjoyable.
