Glad to hear that the child is doing well and proving easy to care for!

I am a voice in support of your singing whatever songs you know as lullabies. Murder ballads with non-child-appropriate content are fantastic for lulling children, and if they keep the adults entertained/laughing at the clash of ideas, all the better. My parents went right on singing "Maddy Groves" and "Lord Thomas and Fair Ellender" over baby me until I was well old enough to understand what was going on in them, and I don't think that did me any harm. (Unbiased observers may differ.) I did grow up a ballad obsessive, of course, and I think that helped.

For the record, I've been told that "Down by the Greenwood Sidey," aka "The Cruel Mother," works well to induce sleep in small children, but I haven't tested this on children old enough to understand that it's about infanticide.
