babysugar Diaries: Help a Mama Out

Sugar mamas have once again proved to be a wealth of information! A while back, I asked you to suggest some songs for my delivery room experience. So far, I've got the following:

  • "Beautiful Boy" by John Lennon
  • "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys
  • "Blackbird" by the Beatles
  • "Lullabye" by the Dixie Chicks
  • "Little Star" by Madonna
  • "Another Sunny Day" and "If She Wants Me" by Belle and Sebastian

Keep sending me the love with song recommendations in comments below. Next week, I'll compile a full list for all of you to share.

The first line of Dare You to Move by Switchfoot- "Welcome to the planet, welcome to existance" just does it for me everytime. When my babies were born, I'd sing that to them every chance I got to hold them (they were preemie twins). and naturally I'd sob.

Martina McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes" if you're having a girl, I get sentimental every time I hear it. Also Fireflies by Faith Hill. I don't know if those are exactly delivery room songs by they calm me down and my colicky girl after she was born,

You might try "A New Day Has Come" by Celine Dion. It's not my usual type of music, but this song continues to resonate with me ever since I conceived after years of infertility.

As soon as my little guy was born the song "Mint Car" by The Cure popped into my head. The lyrics in the song were so relevant to how I was feeling at the time and now it will always be my song for him.

I'm having a boy, and one of them on my playlist is the acoustic cover of "Simple Man." Shinedown did the cover in two versions, the acoustic is much better.
