One of the biggest challenges facing new parents involves getting their newborn babies to sleep. Some parents are blessed with babies who doze off and stay asleep for long enough to be able to get some shut eye themselves. But many other parents struggle with getting their babies to fall asleep. Another Tip Hero staff member, who has a baby who has had some trouble with sleeping/falling asleep, told me that if we could find some incredible trick to get babies to fall asleep faster, we’d have found the Holy Grail of tips (at least for parents of babies). So, needless to say, I was very excited when I found this video over at Today:
This dad simply takes a normal tissue and strokes down his baby’s face when it comes to bed time or nap time. After just 42 second, baby is fast asleep!
Have any of you parents out there tried this technique before? What other advice do you have for new parents struggling with getting their children to sleep? We’d love to hear your about your thoughts and experiences in the comments section below!
