10. Puff the magic dragon (Laura Hanson)

9. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Charlie Francis)
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is a classic lullaby. Charlie Francis’ rendition of this song is peaceful enough to relax any child (or adult). The tinkling piano and slow, melodic rhythm is perfectly soothing and an updated version of the song that probably helped many of us sleep like babies.
8. Itsy Bitsy Spider (Mingmei Hsueh)
Itsy Bitsy Spider is another song straight out of the history books. Mingmei Hsueh, a talented pianist and musician, gave parents this soothing, wordless lullaby. Try not to sing the lyrics next to this instrumental – if you can.
7. Hush Little Baby (Beth McLaughlin)
Beth McLaughlin’s Hush Little Baby sounds exactly like the original. Similar to previous songs, this does not include any lyrics. The soothing air is perfect for bedtime.
6. A whole new world (purple tulips)
No matter what time it is, A Whole New World by Purple Tulips is enough to put any baby to sleep. Even though we know this song from Aladdin (1992), it’s another reimagined classic we could easily fall asleep to – the piano rendition is so graceful.
