Perfect Playlist for Baby’s First Birthday

Four lovely toddlers at the birthday party

Baby’s almost ready to fly! To help you celebrate, we asked Disco Mom Heather Murphy Monteith of Baby Loves Disco to come up with a playlist for the whole family.

The result: a little bit retro, a little bit rootsy and a lot of wings flapping.

Get your groove on! Click the song titles to sample each tune; then download the track (or the entire album!) if you like what you hear.
