About Nikki Nell
Nikki Nell – Founder of Lullaby Lu
Lullaby Lu is new – brand new- as a business, but is five years old as a concept, idea and vision. When my daughter Olivia was born and I was afforded those quieter moments during maternity leave, I began to let my mind wander, to dare to imagine myself working from home, running a business, doing what I love and what I know I have a talent for – singing and writing songs.
Suddenly I was the recipient of many a baby gift: grows, blankets, outfits, teddies, photo albums, photo frames, baby oils, shampoos, creams – but nothing musical. I also found myself buying and giving such gifts to all my fellow new mums as they too had their first babies, always looking for something that was a bit different, extra special – a true keepsake. And then one day it came to me – lullabies.
All mothers sing to their babies at some time or another, and many play music for their little ones to settle them at bed time or nap time. How special – how precious – it could be to play or sing their very own lullaby to their babies during these treasured moments.
To sing a song with a melody that is totally theirs, with lyrics that say exactly what they want to say to their son or daughter as they drift off to sleep? I instantly fell in love with the concept and knew that this was something I could develop and offer to all parents, grandparents, god parents, friends and families alike who are searching for the memorable and personal gift for a very special little bundle.
And so Lullaby Lu was born. I am loving the journey on which it is taking me, and relishing every aspect of its development and success. I just hope that these precious, musical gifts bring as much joy to their recipients as they continue to do for me. x
