In this article, I review baby monitors with lullabies that you can play to brighten the day or night of your baby.
As you consider buying a baby monitor, one of the considerations is the additional features a baby monitor comes with. There are several features but most of the best baby monitors come with lullabies and night light to soothe the baby to sleep.
We’ve compiled a list of baby monitors that can play lullabies to your baby at night or at any time as some give you the ability to remotely control the lullabies that are played.
There are three classes of baby monitors with lullabies:
- Baby monitors with pre-recorded lullabies
- Baby monitors that can play lullabies from a connected smartphone app
- Baby monitors that allow you to record and play lullabies to your baby.
In our list of top baby monitors with lullabies, we’ve combined all the three categories of baby monitors. Depending on what might work best for you and your baby, you can choose baby monitors from either of the three categories.
In addition to the lullabies, some of the 2021 best baby monitors such as Motorola Halo Plus have 7 different night lights. Some baby monitors have up to 8 to 12 pre-recorded lullabies. What we recommend are low EMF-emission baby monitors such as Babymoov Premium Care Baby monitor with lullabies. Babymoov is great because it emits considerably less EMF radiations and still has lullabies to entertain your baby.
Excellent multi-color night light and variety of lullabies are what make a great baby monitor.
We strongly believe and would encourage you to only consider choosing a baby monitor with night light lullaby.

1. Project Nursery Baby Monitor
Project Nursery Baby Monitor is my favorite baby monitor with 6 lullabies (pre-programmed lullabies) which are in the video below. They are heartbeat lullaby, waves lullaby, white noise lullaby, Brahm’s lullaby, and twinkle little star. The baby monitor has decent reviews about the lullabies available.
In addition to the above, project nursery partnered with Rockabye baby in 2016 to offer first and only monitor preloaded with renditions of baby’s favorite rock songs. Rockabye is a company that makes award-winning lullaby renditions.
iBaby M7 is another wifi baby monitor with lullabies. It comes with ten pre-recorded lullabies. In addition, it allows you to use the app on your smartphone and play any music to soothe your baby to sleep. IBaby also comes with bedtime stories that you can play to your baby. What a great add-on feature to the 360 degrees view camera that allows you to view the entire nursery!
iBaby monitor also allows you to record and play lullabies to your baby, a feature that’s not very common with other baby monitors with lullabies.
One critical review that tends to recur among users who have used iBaby monitor is the volume settings of the lullabies. Customers complain of loud sounds that do not soothe the baby to sleep.
Below are other features of iBaby M7 Baby Monitor:
- Records videos in 1080p HD resolution
- Built-in moonlight soother
- Environment sensors: iBaby M7 has an air quality sensor like Arlo baby monitor, another wifi baby monitor that has inbuilt sensors for temperature, humidity, air quality, and Carbon Dioxide.
- iBaby M7 is a dual-band baby monitor that works with 2.4 GHz and 5GHz frequency bands. This feature is great and makes iBaby M7 stand out because while the 2.4GHz band may work well, it can at times be interfered by devices such as wifi router. The fact that you can switch from the easily-interfered 2.4GHz band to interference-free band, 5GHz band, makes it a great baby monitor.
- Compatible with iPhone 5S or newer.
The video below describes all the features of all iBaby M7 features:
Babysense video baby monitor is a product of Hisense Ltd, a company renowned with manufacturing baby monitors since 1991.

Except for a few other wifi baby monitors, Arlo baby has the best app-controlled features of a baby monitor and specifically the night light lullabies.
