Trying to get a crying baby to sleep can be absolutely exhausting. Sometimes it seems like no matter what you do, they just won’t stop. You rock them back and forth. You sing lullabies. You take them for a car ride. Realistically, you try anything and everything.
But odds are you haven’t tried this…
Something You Haven’t Tried To Put Your Baby to Sleep
But what you may not have tried is this simple technique using a soft tissue.
To try this trick all you have to do is gently glide the tissue down over your baby’s eyes. That’s it.
You keep repeating this move over and over and watch as your baby’s eyes slowly begin to close and eventually he or she falls asleep. Often this can take as little as 60 seconds.

It’s really hard to say what’s so effective about this tissue technique. It could be that the tissue encourages them to close their eyes. Or perhaps they find watching the tissue mesmerizing. Or maybe the soft flow of air that floats over their face is soothing.
But that’s not really the important part anyway. The important thing is, your baby is asleep.
