Look, desperate times calls for desperate measures.
As a parent, that may come down to needing sleep before you are walking around like a Zombie (or Mombie seems more appropriate here).
With that being said, if you find it troublesome to get your baby to sleep through the night, you have to see this! This Mom’s Hack For Getting Her Baby To Sleep Through The Night is Brilliant and it is going viral!
Mom Laura Gerson found that her 11 month old daughter wasn’t sleeping through the night and came up with a genius way to fix that.
Putting around 10 binkies/pacifers/dummies in her crib at night. Why you ask?
Apparently, it helps soothe her baby!
In a Facebook post Laura made in The Motherload Community Facebook group, she said:
Weird bedtime routine that’s worked… Lol
Since my little one was about 3 months old she’s gone to bed with roughly 10 dummies in with her. 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! Haven’t had to go into her of a night for about 8 months now… WINNING!! ?
I don’t even wanna think about the time when the “Dummy Fairy” comes to take them away tho ???
Super, smart right?
I mean, it seems like such a simple solution but other parents have SWORN by this trick.
Obviously, we all know that babies having pacifiers for too long can damage their teeth but if it gets them to sleep through the night for the first year or so, I call that a WIN.
So, if you have a baby that won’t sleep through the night, this might be something to give a shot. I wish my kids liked binkies but all 3 of them never liked them. Otherwise, this hack would have been GENIUS.
