  1. Research shows that certain sounds can help us drift off to dreamland. More specifically, the sound of ocean waves. So give it a go, get your laptop out, play a 5 hour water playlist and see how well it works!
  2. Make sure the bedroom is sleep-friendly. A cool, dark bedroom is ideal to promote a restful sleep for your baby.
  3. Massage. Massage your baby for 15 minutes and they will fall asleep faster than those who are only read a story, according to research from the University of Miami Touch Research Institute. 
  4. If you feel like you've tried everything in the book, dreamcatchers are one of the cutest things to include in your baby's room. Why not personalise it and make it into a souvenir from their early years?
