Nursery rhymes have their place, but don't forget to also introduce your children to the music you like to listen to! If your thing is classical music, then get them listening to Mozart. If you prefer ABBA, then have a dance to Mamma Mia! Get up and have a boogy too - especially if no one is looking!
Music can have a calming effect. Babies respond to music in the womb, even before they are born and even more so when they are newborn. Play something soothing and sit comfortably to listen together. When baby is trying to sleep, some nice quiet music can help to set the mood.
And, if your little ones get to like the music you like, it means when you're on a long journey you'll be able to listen to your musical choices and not endure endless hours of "Old McDonald Had A Farm", "Wheels On The Bus" and other classic, but nonetheless tiresome, nursery rhymes as you drive. Instead, you'll be singing along to music you all like!
