I love music, and I’ve tried to share that love with my kids by exposing them to many different artists and genres that I enjoy (and I like everything from classical to alternative to country to rock). When my oldest son was little, he used to fall asleep in the car on our way home from his daycare listening to Guns n Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” (he was always out cold before Axl started singing). But not everything that I listen to is appropriate for little ears, so I had to be selective about what music I shared with my children.
- 18 and Life (Skid Row)
- The Monster (Eminem & Rihanna)
- Hey Ya (Outkast)
- Big Pimpin (Jay-Z)
- Possum Kingdom (Toadies) (which still sounds rather dark to me even as a lullabye)
- Something I Can Never Have (Nine Inch Nails)
Given that I listen to a lot of music, my kids enjoy listening to music too – even my youngest, Taylor, who just passed the 9-months-old mark. It was really fun discovering over the Christmas holidays that he adores Michael Crawford’s rendition of “O Holy Night.”
I have a lot of pictures of Taylor sleeping, but that’s only because that’s the only time he holds still long enough for me to get a clear picture of him. Otherwise he’s moving so much that he’s just a baby-shaped blur.
They also have a cute collection of baby and toddler clothes – you can buy the album packaged with a shirt (for example, a Poison onesie with a copy of Hair Metal Goes Lullaby, or a RUN-D.M.C. onesie packaged with a copy of Once Upon a Rhyme). You can also buy the clothes separately.
They also offer a great feature on their website – try before you buy! To check out any of the songs on Greatest Naps, Vol. 2: The Best of Jammy Jams, check out their songs and albums on their website).
Whether you are a classic hip-hop or alternative music fan or a connoisseur of rock, hair bands, or pop music, you and baby will enjoy this collection of lullaby renditions from a variety of musicians such as Daft Punk, Miley Cyrus, Fugees, Oasis, and Def Leppard. Expose your little one to multiple genres of music while effortlessly drifting off into dreamland.
Jammy Jams is a great way to introduce your kids to your taste in music without subjecting them to the sometimes questionable themes or lyrics. (For example, I love Guns n Roses and Disturbed, but wouldn’t play many of their songs for my younger kids – I would love to see what Jammy Jams could do with Disturbed and Godsmack though!)
To purchase any of the Jammy Jams albums, you can order directly from their website, or you can order their albums through Amazon.com. (You can purchase just individual songs too!)
