How to Create a Lullaby Playlist (and Giveaway!)

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.
