Find out how to compile a baby shower playlist everyone will enjoy.

Traditionally organized by another woman, a baby shower gathers fellow moms, friends, and family to celebrate the upcoming birth. This makes it potentially one of the most memorable events for a soon-to-be mother. Unfortunately, it can also easily become one of the most overwhelming ones for those planning the bash.

Music can be an important part of the party. The organizer or mom-to-be is tasked with creating a playlist for the baby shower that keeps everyone happy.

We’ll provide you with 25 songs you can use to make this experience unforgettable. You want to make sure your baby shower is a blast for everyone.

    Choosing a Good Playlist

    By inviting all women who are close to the mom, you will end up with at least two generations under your roof. And the mother herself could be in her 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, or 50’s.

    Regardless of age, we know that no two people like the exact same type of music. So, while some will enjoy a more current pop vibe, others will prefer hearing hits from the early 2000s or even some rock.

    Plus, your baby might enjoy these hits too. Some studies show the fetus, even while still in the womb, is sensitive to sounds and remembers them as a newborn (1).

    By the time your baby receives its baby shower, its ears are already developed enough to recognize sound patterns, the mother’s voice, and language. At this point, their brain is receptive to soft music, which is proven to promote happiness and early brain development (2).

    I’m sending all my love to you


    16. Will Smith – Just The Two Of Us

    From the hospital that first night

    That night I don’t think one wink I slept


    17. Taylor Swift – Never Grow Up

    Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger
    And it’s so quiet in the world tonight

    But I know where I want to go


    Rock On, Mommies!

    The beauty of baby showers is that they give moms a chance to truly celebrate the latest addition to the family. And when you’re organizing the party, choosing the right baby shower songs is crucial.

    Anything the mom can sing along to might be heard by her baby and promote the bond between them. As long as the mom is experiencing wonderful emotions, this should be a happy time for the baby as well.
