Taylor Swift Lullaby CD Review & Hushabye Baby Giveaway - CLOSED



I'm a huge fan of Hushabye Baby. You may remember my many posts about never leaving the house without my Johnny Cash lullaby CD. It traveled with me from our home CD player to my car to Ethan's grandparents house. Wherever we went, it went. I was getting awfully good at busting out the words to "If I Was A Carpenter" on the regular when Ethan started to get a bit fussy in the backseat.

When Hushabye Baby gave me the opportunity to review another one of their albums, I was elated! I chose Taylor Swift. Most people would probably be surprised to find so many Taylor Swift albums in my CD collection, but we're all entitled to our guilty pleasures, right? Truth be told, I started listening to a lot of Taylor Swift when I was pregnant. I wouldn't be surprised if Ethan's first words were the chorus to White Horse.

When the CD arrived in the mail, we popped it into the CD player. I strapped Ethan into the Ergo and we danced and sang one song after the other. He was fast asleep in no time. I found myself so in love with the soothing melodies of this CD that I was admittedly listening to it on my solo car trip to Walmart the other day while my husband was watching Ethan. It really is quite peaceful and beautiful! Even the more upbeat songs like You Belong With Me are turned into these quiet, soothing instrumental lullabies.

In addition to Johnny Cash, I'm now carrying around Taylor Swift with me, too. At home, in the car, at naptime or bedtime or just to relax during feedings, we're always playing our Hushabye Baby albums. These are my favorite lullaby albums because while soothing for baby, they're also pretty awesome for mom and dad, too. They make for great lullaby songs to sing to baby, too. I mean, be honest, do you really know the words to Brahm's Lullaby?!

Hushabye Baby doesn't just stop at Taylor Swift and Johnny Cash. There are 10 different country artists to choose from ranging from Willie Nelson to Rascal Flatts, all in lullaby form. Each CD has 10-12 full-length songs on it like an actual CD so it's perfect for fussy babies taking a while to go down and nap or long car rides. Many children's lullaby CD's only have half the number of songs that Hushabye Baby albums have and I'm sure we all know the maniacal feeling of hearing those same lullabies over and over again and wanting to toss the CD out the window. No? Just me? Either way, it's a wonderful change of pace to not feel like you're stuck in Groundhog Day when listening to these fun, creative lullabies.

In addition to the beautiful music, the album art is adorable. There is a little story to go along with each of the animals adorning the covers of these albums on the inside, filled with bright colors and cute illustrations for kids to look at.

As I pack my stuff up for a morning drive and coffee date with Ethan's grandpa, you bet Taylor Swift was the first thing I was put into my diaper bag.

We are hooked on Hushabye Baby. And now you can be, too!
