One mum has shared her trick for improving her toddler’s sleep and it’s so simple we’re wondering how we didn’t come up with it sooner.
Imagine the baby is crying and you’re all warm and tucked up in bed. It’s the middle of Winter and the last thing you want to do is tiptoe down the tiled hallway to go and jam – sorry, gently place – the dummy back into your baby’s mouth.
When you do, as you’re sneaking back to the warmth of your own bed, while your toes are craving the still-warm bed sheets, your baby begins to cry again.
You stomp down the hallway back to the baby’s room to discover the dummy has fallen back out of their little mouth before you even had the chance to cross the threshold from the dark and cold hallway to the oasis of your bedroom. And what’s worse? It’s slipped back down behind the cot, sending you into a frantic dash through the dark house for a replacement before the baby wakes up the toddler.
Laura Gerson from Canvey, Essex has solved the problem and the solution really is very simple.
Sure, some in the office said this was nothing new, but some of us (the ones that count, that is!) were blown away by the simplicity of this genius artistic creation.
I mean really, HOW have we not seen this before?
“Since my little one was about 3 months old she’s gone to bed with roughly 10 dummies in with her,” Laura posted to Facebook. “Found that when she cried of a night all she wanted was a dummy then she’d go back off. Realised that if she had one to hand then she would just find it of a night, trial and error with her losing a few down the side but 99% of the time she feels around, finds a dummy, sticks it in and she’s sorted!”
By scattering dummies around in the cot before putting 11-month-old Amelia to sleep, Laura can sleep soundly knowing that when her daughter wakes, she can find a dummy and settle herself, giving everyone a good night’s sleep.
Laura added, “Haven’t had to go into her of a night for about 8 months now… WINNING!!”
While many parents reported doing similar with their babies, some admitted to taking it one step further with GLOW IN THE DARK DUMMIES!
We just can’t even …
I almost want to go back to the baby days and stock up on dummies.
