Just make your kid listen to your music. My daughter has been listening to Jason Derulo "Savage" on repeat because of me. Haha.

Yes! +Strawberry Fields, I am the walrus... Some of their stuff is surprisingly visual and noun based, which works great for kids.

Honestly we’ve been rocking mid-90s music for fun, and toddler has been rocking out and having dance parties. We went through a period of catering to his music needs and I was going crazy.

Hi! Try folk music that doesn’t have too much going on, but a steady rhythm. Toddlers like repetition and rhythm

I second just letting your kids listen to music you love, but if kids songs make your kid happy, this is a good collection:

Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, all! I should’ve added that we already play a lot of our music for him, including the Beatles, but the request came up because he is OBSESSED with Twinkle Twinkle and The Farmer In The Dell right now, and we hate the production on the nursery rhymes we’ve found so far.

Have you heard of the show Beat Bugs? On Netflix. Each episode is based loosely on a Beatles song. Such a great, great show. If your kid gets into it, you can listen to the Beatbugs albums and it’s just like listening to Beatles but sung in a very slightly more cutesy way.

No I hadn’t! Thank you!

Advice? My 14 month old hasn’t been eating dinner lately because he eats double portions at daycare and isn’t hungry when he’s home. So now he wakes up at 5 am instead of 7:30 for a milk bottle and goes back to sleep. Is this a phase? Can I do anything about it? (He used to have regular meals - if daycare doesn’t feed him 2x, he goes steals the other kids’ food 🤦‍♀️ other than that he’s fine)
