Lullabies have been scientifically proven to soothe children, but have you ever listened to the lyrics?

I’ve spent a significant amount of the last few months singing the same lyrics over and over while rocking back and forth. Sometimes, I feel like I’ve lost my mind. I haven’t; I’ve simply had a baby and this phase won’t last forever.

n the lottery of motherhood, I got a child who needs a lot of support and movement to get to sleep. She’s already growing out of it but in those first three months or so, the same three lullabies were on repeat 15 hours a day. When the public health nurse came, she gave me a book from the HSE which said babies of Aurora’s age needed 15 hours sleep a day.
