What settles down my nearly-4-year-old: jazz. What calms me down: jazz, early music, Brandenburg concertos, Celtic music... The whole family loves the Putumayo playground series in particular, and all of Putomayo's compilations in general. This would be an awesome addition to our music collection!

I have a 3 month old daughter and ever since the day that I brought her home from the hospital she loves classical music. I play baby mozart for her and she stops crying. I know that she would be very happy to listen to Putumayo Kids, as well as myself!

Celtic Serenity by Carlyle Fraser. Instrumental lullabies are the best.

We are currently fans of the Rock a Bye Baby Series and are parents who would love to expand our daughters worldview through music. What a great collection to introduce them to! We have been fans of other Putumayo albums and are looking forward to checking this out!

Dave Koz's "Golden Slumbers" has been a gift as we've worked on sleep schedules for our daughter. And there have been numerous times when mommy took a nap too just rocking her to sleep with those tunes :)

My daughter loves to listen to Dreamland and/or ocean sounds by medspa. Me? When I stop moving, I relax.

The lullaby renditions of AC/DC, Metallica, and Johnny Cash have served us well.

My 22 month old son has always slept well with the sounds of the metro goldline train in the background.

Both of my kids love classical music, although sometimes they dance to it instead of relaxing. :)

My 8 month old sleeps with the white noise machine on. He always relaxes to instrumental lullabies.

My son LOVES Putuyamo Kids "Animal Playground" and "Jazz Playground" CD's. And so do I! The music is so much fun. I haven't heard the nighttime CD but I'm sure we'll love that one too. (We currently listen to a few of the "Rockabye Baby" CD's at night)

When my husband's son visits, it's always a CD of thunder and rain sounds which lulls him to sleep at bedtime ... works like a charm. :)

Anything that contains the piano of a flute helps to lull her to sleep. Additionally, jazz is always a keeper!

Soft, soothing, easy-listening from multiple genres. Also, nature sounds to put us in harmony with our surroundings as our ancestors enjoyed. It helps to keep things soft and easy - colors, lighting, peaceful surroundings which the music or nature sounds help us achieve. Meditation with the music in the background to get centered. Meditation has many meanings for many creeds. For me it is scriptures, the bible, brings comfort, encouragement, direction, while my mind and body are resting with the background music or sounds. Make it a complete experience of body, soul (mind, will, emotions), and spirit. God is the source of peace.

Dreamland CD is the best. The kids school introduced it to them during "nap time" in early chilhood and now it's the go to get them to just relax (and eventually fall asleep).

Our little one falls asleep to Jason Mraz. :) He has a few lullaby cd's too that he listens to on occasion (classical music lullabies.) He loves listening to his Putumayo kids cds...especially the Animal Playground one during the day. I'm partial to the Asian Dreamland CD they put out.

My son always fell asleep to the CD, "Sleep Sound in Jesus", a collection of Christian songs and lullabys with very soothing music in the background....the songs fade in at the beginning and ending so there is continual gentle music without a jarring start and finish to each song so that baby stays asleep. I, personally sometimes fall asleep to beautiful and gentle piano and other instrumental music.
