A MUM has praised a £9.99 pillow spray as ‘magic’ after it finally helped her teething toddler get a full night’s sleep.
Chloe Bashford, 26, was severely sleep deprived after her six-month-old, Joshua, screamed every 10 minutes due to his teeth.
Mum-of-four Chloe, from Newhaven, East Sussex, was “at her wits end” after her son was awake for most of the night.
She said: “Joshua was premature so he has always been quite a needy baby, who always wanted holding.
“I was constantly up in the night with him and it made bedtime really stressful and unenjoyable.
“He is teething, so he’s been extra clingy recently. He would scream every 10 to 15 minutes and I would be up and down all night without fail comforting him.
“My husband Josh works nights, so to settle all four children on my own was a task in itself, and I’d spend over an hour every night trying to appease everyone.
“I really was at my wits end.”
As the sleep-deprived mum desperately searched for solutions, the Very Hungry Caterpillar packaging caught her eye.
Chloe, a former maternity ward photographer, hailed the £9.99 spray for allowing Joshua sleep from 9pm to 5am.
