We have a great CD of Beatles music lullabied for babies… it’s calm, instrumental, familiar yada yada yada. We bought it in the early days when we were still trying anything to help Holden sleep (before we settled on white noise).
Anyway, it has a surprising second life. On the weekends when we can’t get home in time for a real crib nap, we bust out the Bedtime with the Beatles CD and lull Holden to sleep in his cozy car seat. Just this month, we’ve used this trick 4 times to take turns running errands while one of us waits in the car (or just outside on the cell phone).
Oh yeah, the pink and blue covers are to appeal to your sense of gender enforcement — they’re the same music.
