Never fear! While your baby is still at the captive audience stage, and before he or she starts expressing musical preferences (The Wiggles, again and again and again), you can treat them to lullaby renditions of your favourite rock bands, thanks to the Rockabye Baby! CDs in the children’s CD collection.
If you’re a punk or alternative purist you may shudder to hear there’s also The Pixies and The Ramones (‘I wanna be sedated’), and for people who like things a bit more current there’s also Coldplay or Radiohead (no surprises).
These are all one week issue, and free on a child’s card.
Wellington City Libraries has a large collection of lullaby (and other music) CDs for children. Have a look the next time you’re in the library, or have a look on the catalogue here for a selection.
