Babies love to be sung to, but a lot of us aren't comfortable singing out loud anywhere (except maybe in the shower). Well, it's time to get over your fears and let your child enjoy your voice while you bond together with the magic of music!
Children’s music GRAMMY® Award winners Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer have brought you Sing To Your Baby®, which is based on the Parents’ Choice Gold Award winning playbook/CD. You can check out the book/CD here.
If you'd like to Sing To Your Baby (iPad only), download it for free via the handy button below. It comes pre-loaded with one song and additional songs can be purchased via in-app purchase:
This child-based, sing-along app is based on the Playbook and CD Sing to Your Baby® from GRAMMY® award-winning artists Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer. Sing to Your Baby® provides parents, grandparents and caregivers a platform to sing to their young child in a safe, fun and guided environment. The app provides the music as the lyrics roll across the screen. Songs are catchy, easy to learn and provide hours of entertainment and bonding with infants and toddlers.
Each song includes four tracks, along with a Parent Guide. Additional songs are available for $1.99 per song, and there is a 20-second preview of each song so you can try before you buy.
· Sing along as the words scroll in time to the TUNE and learn the songs as Cathy, Marcy or Mike sing with you
· Record your voice for your baby as the vocal or instrumental versions play, with scrolling lyrics. Then your baby hears YOUR voice signing along to the music. It can be replayed over and over – you can add it to your permanent library.
· Play along on ukulele, guitar, or any instrument as the chords scroll by. You are the star in your baby’s world.
· Record your baby or older siblings singing with you
· Create recorded memories that will bring you and loved ones joy for a lifetime.
In addition to the pre-loaded vocals, users have the option to record their own voice that can be re-played when away from the home. The app is free to download and comes pre-loaded with one song. Additional songs can be purchased for $1.99 each from iTunes. There are 11 songs for download and each download includes 4 versions of a song: Mom vocal, Dad vocal, Mom instrumental and Dad instrumental. Consumers can save money and purchase the whole album with 44 tracks for only $15.99.

Eleanor Holland is a strong advocate of singing to your children. Apart from all the other scientifically proven facts about it being good for them (and you), it's the only way I get a word in edgewise somedays.
