Morning!

Can anyone recommend a good nursery rhyme cd, I've looked on Amazon but there are so many to choose from? I'd love to get one with all the old traditional rhymes, the type my Mummy would have sung to me! The problem is I can't remember half of them and if I can I can only remember the words and not the tune or vice versa. At the moment I'm making up little ditties like "windies in your tum, there's windies in your tum" sung to the  'the farmers in his den' tune - fine for now but it won't wash as he gets bigger'!!!

Thanks very much

Talking of windy tummies, I'm sat here typing listening to W making rude noises through the baby monitor  ;D ;D ;D that's my boy!

Not sure how traditional you're after, but I do like the ELC CD's.  If you're fussy, I'd say avoid any Fisher Price ones as they're very 'Twee' with lots of cartoonish American voices.

B,

I'm very lucky in that I need to know lots of these for my work!! (I'm a teacher! At present I teach in nursery 3-4 year olds).  What I have found helpful with my DS is going to the library for Rhyme Time! It's run at most local libraries and lasts 30 mins or so, it's a good place to meet other mummies and also another place for baby to socialise - plus you get to learn the old and new nursery rhymes. 

I'll have a look when I'm back at work after the holiday for a good CD for you.  Meanwhile I think making up rhymes to familiar tunes is fab and am inclined to do this myself especially if we want a good laugh in the car (me and DH - DS laughs a mummy singing normal songs!)  ;D

Keep singing it's great.
