Pop tunes instead of lullabies for babies

2nd December 2008

Research carried out by The Baby Website has shown that nearly two-thirds of mothers say pop songs are better than lullabies for lulling a baby to sleep. 

Spokeswoman Kathryn Crawford said "Patience" by Take That came top of the most popular songs, adding: "We were really surprised to find that mums would rather sing modern pop tunes than traditional lullabies. I expect most mums put the radio on when at home with the baby and the catchy lyrics make it impossible to sing anything else at bedtime."
