Barney For Baby: Love and Lullabies is the tenth US studio album from Barney, released on CD and cassette on January 23, 2000 under the music division of Lyrick Studios, making it the first of three US Barney albums to be released that year. It was re-released by Koch Records and HIT Entertainment on January 11, 2005.
On April 10, 2020, the album was transferred to Warner Music Group's Arts Music division, along with other Barney albums, as Mattel entered into an exclusive, multi-year global music licensing agreement between the company, announced on May 1, 2020.
The album was aimed at infants as part of the Barney for Baby brand. It includes lullaby versions of traditional songs, (with the exception of "What Makes a Flower So Pretty?" and "I Love You") accompanied by soothing nature sounds, and instrumental melodies to each track.
Following the release of Love & Lullabies, a spanish language version, A Dormir con Barney, was released on January 1, 2001.
At AllMusic, Heather Phares rated the album four stars out of five, saying that Barney For Babies: Love & Lullabies is "sure to please Barney's biggest fans". Phares adds that it features "gentle classics and originals".
