Alternative Nap Time Songs (That You’ll Actually Enjoy!)

Music is often an essential part of nap time, providing a relaxing backdrop to help the kiddos settle down and get to sleep.

As the adult in the room, however, there is only so much “twinkle twinkle little star” you can take before you’ll start to wonder what you are going to do to keep those xylophones from driving you crazy!

That got us wondering…why can’t there be a playlist that helps the little ones get to sleep and is something that adults can also enjoy?

Enter our free nap time playlist on Spotify!

These songs were carefully selected by the HiMama team to be your go-to when you need to set the mood for some quiet time. There are no offensive lyrics, surprises, or energetic moments whatsoever — just a collection of calming songs that are both kid and adult-approved.

For your next nap time — or even for yourself to unwind to after a long day — crank down the volume to barely audible and enjoy these gentle tunes to help the kiddos in your home, preschool or daycare get to sleep!
