A BABY sleep expert has revealed a clever trick to encourage tots to sleep.
Chrissy Lawler, aka The Peaceful Sleeper, took to TikTok to share the method which she calls the “eyebrow stroke”.
“We instinctively close our eyes if something come towards us, so my favourite trick for baby sleep is what I call the eyebrow stroke,” she explained.
“Starting at their hairline and working downwards, just gently encourage their eyes to close.
“If they’re sleepy they’ll realise that that feels good, and they’ll just keep them shut.”
The video had a mixed level of success among viewers on TikTok.
“My nephew loved this, but my baby keeps his eyes open and deadpan stares at me,” one person wrote.
“My parents did this to me as a child and I swear it will still put me out cold 30 years later,” another commented.
“My newborn photographer did this and now i always do it too,” a third person wrote, to which Chrissy replied: “It’s the best move!!”
“Yes all moms need to know this,” another mum praised.
“I have been doing this for years with all 3 of my kids and nap time and bed time is less stressful..for me.”
“I used to do this when I worked at a daycare and I do it with my own baby now,” another satisfied mum wrote.
Since posting it, Chrissy’s video has been viewed over 10,000 times.
