One of my favorite times of the day when my baby girl was just a week old was to hold her and play her some quiet lullaby music in the evenings. One of my most favorite lullaby albums was "Til the Morning – Lullabies & Songs of Comfort“ by Edie Carey and Sarah Sample. It soothed her (and me too!)
I also enjoyed a lot of hand-picked songs I had compiled into my own personal playlist. One of my favorite music players is Spotify, which allows you to compile all of your fave songs into playlists for free.
Creating a playlist on Spotify is very simple! First, you will need to download and install either the program for PC or MAC, or App for Android or Iphone.
To create a new playlist on Spotify:
+ Click New Playlist on the left then name your playlist.
+ Drag and drop songs from anywhere in Spotify into the playlist to add them.
+ Or right-click a track or album and choose “Add to” (the name of the playlist you created)
Additionally you can search for songs via other user’s playlists online – or composers/artists by typing into the search box in the program or app. For additional help setting up a playlist click here.
