Songs to soothe and nurture baby - our expert friends share playlist picks for a peaceful Embrace Space.
Creating a special Embrace Space in your home where you can feel comfortable, confident and complete is so important in those early months as a parent. This is the place where you'll relax, nurture and bond with your baby. Music is one of the most elemental ways to connect. Singing, rocking and dancing around the room with your baby in your arms, is one of life's pure joys. It's also one of the easiest ways to personalize your Embrace Space. Our super-savvy partners in the Embrace Space contest, Project Nursery Co-Founders Pam Ginocchio and Melisa Fluhr, recommend playing your favorite music or soothing tunes as a great way to stay relaxed and cherish time in your Embrace Space.
We turned to some of our nearest and dearest for their favorite songs to rock on with baby. The result is the must-have Essential Tunes Playlist a collection of soulful, sweet and snuggle-worthy songs for parents and their babies. Let the soothing begin!
