Slumberland CD Review and giveaway

Slumberland CD review and giveaway


Sleep - the eternal prayer of the new parent. "Please let him sleep so I might." Uttered frequently, with notes of desperation especially at around 6pm in this house.

One of the things I've been keen on since very early days with Harry, is a bedtime routine. From early on I did my best to ensure that there were recognisable signs for Harry that bedtime was coming. A warm bath, quiet story time, a post bath massage, and a breastfeed on our bed. All things that only happen at bedtime. And now we also have a CD to listen to that helps the process along.

Slumberland is a collection of lullabies and classic songs recorded and performed by Humphrey Berney of Blake. Being the musical theatre nerd that I am, I was thrilled at the inclusion of Hushabye Mountain from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Somewhere over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. I've taken to playing them after supper as we begin the wind down process. I really like it myself - which is great from my point of view (I'm sure we all have those baby CDs that bubba loves but that are close to pushing us over the edge? Just me?!) and Harry seems to find it relaxing, becoming less excited as the CD continues and has made the association between finishing the CD and going up for his bath. He does then have to put up with me continuing to sing along so hopefully I don't ruin all the good work the music has done!

I would just mention how pretty the CD cover is - the illustrations were designed by Humphrey's wife and they're pleasingly whimsical. I would love them as prints for Harry's bedroom!

The CD or an MP3 download is available to purchase from Welcome to Slumberland 

I've been given a copy of Slumberland to give away as a competition prize - just complete the Rafflecopter widget below to be in with a chance of winning - and hopefully on your way to a peaceful bedtime. If you can't see the Rafflecopter widget, then do just press F5

The only thing that gets my son to sleep is singing the wheels on the bus in a very calm tone.

Our two little ones love "Hush little baby don't say a word" to the point that I've sung it so often I've started ad libbing my own lines making reference to what we've done that day, or plan to do tomorrow, or just to reference their favourite cartoon characters!
