Nathan Dailo's cure to sleepless nigh ts is simple and all you need is a tissue.

The dad simply slides a piece of tissue over his baby son's face repeatedly until he nods off.

If this doesn't work for you, our own sleep expert, Dr. Nerina, has great sleep tips for new parents including:

- Use some white noise to block out the sound of every whimper and avoid being hypersensitive to noise. You can buy white noise machines or use a fan to create background sound

- Use a low-level bedside lamp. The less time you are exposed to light, the easier it will be to get back to sleep again

- Every new mother should power nap and naps should last between 5 and 15 minutes. This way you will approach a near sleep state without actually falling asleep
