Preparing for a Bambino o Bambina

Stella Stellina (lullabye) 

As some of you know, my husband and I are expecting a baby this June. I'm hoping to raise the baby bilingual, but I'm realizing that there are many baby-related words I don't know (yet.)

I'm starting by making some lists of new words to learn and reading about raising a baby bilingual. Meanwhile, I'm also finding Italian lullabies and songs to sing to the baby. I am particularly taken by Stella Stellina (listen above.) 

I'd love to know about any resources you might have.
