But I've been trying to figure out how to get more music things for him.
I have been putting my iPhone on speakers to play soothing lullabies but he actually wants to play the instrument himself.
What should I do????
What do I need?
What do you do?
Little Tikes makes a four note piano that could be fun, and it's easy to find at big box stores. We have that, along with a tambourine and a slide whistle. My husband is very musical, so that fills our days pretty well, but I know not everyone is like that. I don't know very many children's songs, so we use the book Seven Times the Sun for songs for the day to day rhythm. It has lots of good ideas and verses, too!

Taking what works and leaving the rest
Singing to them is so nice. I have no singing voice to speak of, but I sing to my daughter all the time and she loves it. I go on youtube and look up kids songs to learn them since I did not know many starting out, I have checked out CDs from the library and I also make up tunes to nursery rhymes I know. Every day she asks if we can sing a song together.
I know a lot of people who like the melissa and doug instrument kit, or even a simple drum.
A cheaper way I incorporate music is by having Pandora on during the day. We love the Frances England station. We also have instruments and use play silks to make music and dance.
