I have looked around for relaxing bedtime music for my 3 year old boy. I wanted something that wasn't too babyish, that didn't have vocal singing on, and that helped to wind down from the day. This CD ticked all the boxes. I can see how it is designed to move through the stages of relaxation. My 3 year old is very active and his mind is always wizzing. Having something else to focus on really helps. I also find it nice to wind down to. Beautiful instrumental, combined with rhythms to soothe. Highly recommended.

I bought this cd about a year ago from amazon. It is-in my opinion- absolutely superb! We have played this to my daughter every single night as part of her bed routine as previously we had struggled to settle her to sleep. She is now nearly four years old and she loves this music. It's incredibly relaxing music and beautiful to listen to. After one year of daily/nightly listening none of the family is bored or tired of it. We all love it! and it does the job!

My nearly 3 year old would not go to sleep by himself until we got this CD! Now he is asleep within 15-20mins! Amazing!

This CD has some lovely soothing music and sounds and my 2 year old daughter likes it - she asks me to put on her 'sleepy-byes music' when going to sleep now so it has helped her to associate the music with sleep-time. We've been using it for a couple of months and so far it hasn't helped her re-settle on her own when she wakes in the night but it helps her to calmly go off to sleep at the start of the night. The music doesn't feel repetitive so you don't get bored of listening to the same songs over and over.

Really fantastic! Calmed my toddler down straight away. She chatted much less and listened to the music. Although it didn't get her to sleep that much quicker, the hour or two was spent lying down calmly which was much better for both of us. Very pleased. Would definitely recommend.

We've tried a few different music boxes and lullabies to put our toddler to bed, but this CD is really the one she's taken to the most. It really is relaxing; both my husband and I have commented that we feel better ourselves when we put this CD on. And I think because we feel relaxed during bedtime, our sleep refuse-nik is finally picking up on that.

It's instrumental music, kind of new-agey - I think the composer might have used mostly keyboards to record it (my music background is a little patchy, forgive me). There's a little bit of ocean noise and some light laughter in the background of one of the songs, as if you're snoozing on a towel on a warm beach, listening to the activity around you. It's really nice.

The best thing we've found about this CD: the music is distinctive enough that our 15 month-old daughter knows when she hears it, it's time for bed. On nights when we're running late with nursery pick-up and getting dinner on, we can skip her bath and go straight to the music. The bedtime routine still goes smoothly, even with the change, because the music is anchoring it all. Thank you, Michael Doris. It's helped!

Most nights this is now a part of our routine and it really works to make my 3 year old unwind after being on the go all day. Apparently it encourages a better quality of sleep and I can say that since we've had this my son is sleeping far more soundly and for longer. Nightlight on and this playing and he'll drift off half way through... usually lol. Would highly recommend for any parent going through bedtime battles or just wants calming music to relax a highly strung little one.

I think this music has helped my nine month fall to sleep. No mean feat. Absurdly though it has now also woken him up for the third time. There's a loud horn type sound at the end of the last track which is not a restful noise. Maybe it's my crap speakers but after nearly fifty minutes of settling him it drives me nuts that if he's not deep asleep the music makes him open his eyes and cry!

I was sceptical about this as we had used lullabies and white noise before with little sucess. But this cd really seemed to help my daughter feel sleepy. She is getting to sleep faster and needing less rocking and even took a nap for the first time in a while (she is 2.5). The music is nice too and we enjoy the pre bedtime quiet play more now
