Lullaby Songs For Babies To Go To Sleep
It doesn’t work for everyone.
We tried letting Rhian cry and it didn’t work at all. There was no improvement. She would cry for one-and-a-half hours every night and fall asleep with exhaustion. We thought it wasn’t fair. She started to whimper when she saw her cot during the day. So it doesn’t always work.’

But it does work for many others.
The blog says it works within a week, but for myself and two friends our children were sleeping through the night sooner. The first night of the programme was the worst. This harsher treatment has not caused our second child to be less confident as some blogs and people suggest. She is very calm, whereas my first makes mountains out of mole-hills.’

How to do it
Keep a sleep diary for a week before you make any changes so that you can see where the problems and the patterns occur. Choose a week when no one is ill and nothing out of the ordinary is planned. Keep the diary and a pen next to your bed, so you can jot things down as they happen. Make a note of what the whole family did, where and when. Sometimes siblings can make a difference to your baby’s sleep pattern. Copy the chart opposite or make your own.
