Take a glimpse at what Canada has to offer

A glimpse at what's hot for moms

In case you didn’t get everything you (or your baby) wanted for Christmas, check out glimpse. The Canadian blog was started in October 2008 by two moms with a desire to promote all things Canadian. Check out the site for little unknown treats, most of them made by moms (for moms). A few of Andrea’s (co-founder) favorites include: Eco-friendly Phat Baby Wraps, Babes in Black maternity and baby clothes, and Fenigo – a Canadian eco-friendly website.

“Rock” Your Baby To Sleep

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008 by:

Many moms are taking rocking your baby to sleep literally. A new study found that more moms are singing pop and rock tunes to baby than traditional lullabies. Out of 2,000 mothers polled, two-third preferred to rock out with their tots before nap time. Thirteen percent of moms thought lullabies were too old fashioned and 10 percent couldn’t remember the lyrics.

The top 5 baby hits are:

1. Patience – Take That (yes, it was a UK study)

2. Angels – Robbie Williams

3. I Kissed a Girl – Kate Perry (just plain weird)

4. You’re Beautiful – James Blunt

5. Love Me Tender – Elvis Presley

(Guns n’ Roses even made it in to the top 10 with Sweet Child O’ Mine)

While I’m still a fan of the classics – I sing a mean Wheel’s on the Bus – I can be found singing the occasional pop tune. For months after my first son Bode was born we used to dance around the house to Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back (changing the words to “Bode’s bringing preppy back.”)

I’m all for mixing the classic baby tunes with some new pop hits.

What are your favorite tunes to share with baby?
