|Mothers are shunning traditional lullabies in order to sing their babies to sleep in favour of modern pop songs, according to new research.
A poll of 2,000 parents found that more than one in ten mothers regard old-fashioned lullabies such as Rock-A-Bye Baby as outdated, while many cannot remember the words to classics including Hush Little Baby and Lavender Blue.
Nearly two thirds believed that contemporary rock and pop tunes were more effective for getting their babies to go to sleep.
