A recent survey has revealed that mothers these days are rejecting old-fashioned lullabies in favour of modern pop songs when helping their babies to sleep. Take That's 'Patience' was a top choice, whilst Oasis' 'Wonderwall' and Guns n Roses' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' also get some mum-play.
The Baby Website said they found the results of their survey surprising. Spokeswoman Kathryn Crawford told the BBC: “We were really surprised to find that mums would rather sing modern pop tunes than traditional lullabies. I expect most mums put the radio on when at home with the baby and the catchy lyrics make it impossible to sing anything else at bedtime”.
