Baby Bunting
by: Amy Robbins-Wilson

Baby buntings are basically baby sleeping bags. They keep your baby cozy when it's nippy outside.

Lyric Meaning
by: Sandy

I would like to know what is a baby bunting. The lyrics do not clarify this. Bunting is a wrap.

The version I remember
by: Anonymous

I have been trying to find the words to the lullaby my mom (and I guess my older sisters) sang to us when we were young. I had some of the words and this post helped me fill in the rest. I think I remember it like this:

Bye oh, baby bunting
Daddy's gone a hunting
Gone to catch a rabbit's skin
to wrap his baby bunting in.

Mom would sing this over and over again until we would fall asleep sometimes changing it up with Rock-a-bye baby in the tree top / When the wind blows the the cradle will rock / When the bough breaks the cradle will fall / and down will come baby cradle and all.

I want to pass these words on to my daughters so they can sing them to their children. We got our first grand-daughter in May

Bye Baby Bunting
by: Camille Leon

My parents sang me a song that sounds like yours:

Bye Baby Bunting
Daddy's going hunting
to get a rabbit skin
to wrap the Baby Bunting in!
