    There’s nothing more soothing for a baby than his mother’s voice. Have you tried these lovely bedtime lullabies for babies that are considered classics?


    Across generations and countries, mothers sing to their babies to calm them down. This comes as naturally as holding or nuzzling your little one. As a mother, you must have cooed sweet nothings into your baby’s ears to make him sleep. The best part is that you don't have to be a qualified singer to croon soothing bed time numbers for your little one. Your baby is guaranteed to love whatever you sing!

    Check out these lullaby songs lyrics and try them out tonight. We are sure these lullabies will ensure the dreams are sweeter. They work well for babies and toddler alike. While the former may not understand the words, they sure understand the underlying emotion of security, love, comfort and warmth. Talk about sleeping tight in that knowledge!

    The Best Bedtime Lullabies For Babies

    1. Rock-a-Bye Baby:

      This is one of the most enduring and favourite lullabies among babies and children alike. It is also a great way to connect your baby to the natural world.

      Rock-a-bye baby, on the treetop,
      When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
      When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
      And down will come baby, cradle and all.

    2. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star:

      This popular English lullaby is easy to sing and teaches a child basic concepts of the cosmos. Plus, there's nothing as relaxing as starlight at night-time!

      Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
      How I wonder what you are!
      Up above the world so high,
      Like a diamond in the sky!

    3. The Alphabet Song:

      Sung in a similar tune as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, this lullaby effortlessly mixes learning and fun. It's a basic tune and oh, if your child is a toddler, a brilliant way to learn the ABCs too!

      Q-R-S-T-U-V-W-X-Y and Z.
      Now I know my A-B-Cs,
      Next time won't you sing with me.
      Now I know my A-B-Cs,
      Next time won't you sing with me.

    4. Star Light, Star Bright:

      The age old belief of wishes being granted when a shooting star falls gets a musical twist with this highly popular rhyme. It is also one of the oldest lullaby songs for babies to sleep.

      Star light, star bright
      First star I see tonight
      I wish I may, I wish I might
      Have the wish I wish tonight.

    5. Good Night, Sleep Tight:

      The name says it all. This easy to sing lullaby not only bids goodnight but also highlights the promise of a brand new next day. This makes it to the list of best lullaby songs every single time!

      Good night, sleep tight,
      Don’t let the bedbugs bite
      Wake up bright
      In the morning light To do what’s right
      With all your might.

    6. Wee Willie Winkie:

      This one is sleep-personified. It is also an effective way to reinstate bed-time for older, tantrum-prone kids!

      Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
      Upstairs, downstairs, in his nightgown.
      Rapping at the windows, crying through the locks,
      “Are all the children in their beds?
      It’s past eight o’clock!”
