The hardest part of being a parent is making your babies fall asleep at night, especially if you’re already struggling to sleep on your own. You want to make sure that your baby is in a sound sleep in order to get a few hours of sleep for yourself at night. But that’s not easy to do! But this mom discovered this helpful way to make her baby asleep in the night, and you’ll be grateful to find it too!
This new mom called Laura Gerson has a baby called Amelia, she was about three months old by the time she noticed this; she would wake up in the middle of the night and start crying when her soother falls out. When Laura noticed this the first time via her video monitor, she kept watching her daughter to see if that’s the real reason. Then she came up with this amazing and simple solution.
Laura started surrounding her daughter with 10 soothers at night; “99% of the time, she just wanted her dummy [soother] to soothe her back to sleep,” said Laura. “When she had lots in there, she was quite calm, falling asleep with them in her hands, too. She isn’t a total dummy-fiend and doesn’t even have them through the day really, but it really soothes her having them through the night, and having more in there makes it easy for her to find one and hold one (or two),” she continued.
This might sound banal and silly, but it really changed her life as it made her daughter sleep like an angel! She said that after she started doing this, her daughter sleeps for like 12/13 hours at night, giving her mom the chance to take as much rest as she needs at night as well.
