Singing your baby to sleep seems to be something we just do. But it turns out that it's one of the best things you can possible do as a parent for your baby, both for their future and for your relationship.

Dr Anita Collins is the host of our new podcast The Lullaby Effect. She takes us through what happens when we sing our babies to sleep, and why it’s so good for them. 

Kinderling's celebrating lullabies this July, including music downloads for you to sing along to, more expert interviews, a chance to share your own favourites and heaps more. Check it all out on our lullaby hub.
