The Story Behind Lullabies Spotify Playlist

As you can imagine, much of my baby break was spent getting used to having a newborn in the house again and learning what he likes and dislikes. Turns out, my son is a fan of music, which should come to no surprise to those who know me and my semi-secret love of musicals or my husband and his collection of musical instruments and his band.

One day when nothing else was working to put him to sleep, I began humming to him and it was like I flipped a switch and he instantly closed his eyes and settled down. While I kept humming to him, I began looking up how and why the singing worked, which brings us to today’s topic.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Lullabies.
