30 Best Baby Shower Songs Playlist

A baby shower is a perfect opportunity for all the important women in the new moms-to-be life to gather together and celebrate the upcoming birth. This makes the event a truly memorable one for the mom to be.

But there is also a downside for the person or persons organizing the event, as they can soon become overwhelmed by the planning of such a memorable event.

A baby shower needs to have a certain tone and atmosphere and one of the best ways to do this is by creating a fantastic playlist.

Welcome to the world,
That will hold you tight.”

How To Choose A Good Playlist

Before you start putting together your favorite tunes there are a few things to remember about this playlist that is key to its success.


Your playlist needs to appeal to as many of the women as possible so this does mean that it is going to need to span more than one generation. In fact, it may need to span three – mother to be – her mother – her grandmother.

Bad language

The songs on your playlist should always be in good taste, with no bad language or offensive references.

Type of music

No matter how many generations are attending the baby shower there is no guarantee that they will all love it. With this in mind, it is best to diversify the type of music on your playlist.

The Final Thought

Music is the best way to create a fun lighthearted atmosphere that will ensure that everyone has a wonderful time at this special event.

You could even add some more songs to your playlist to ensure that you have plenty of music for the entire occasion.
