One of the most common reasons a baby wakes up in the night is because the pacifier has fallen out, and dear baby would so like a replacement.
While many parents have struggled with this over the years, getting up every hour or so to faithfully put the pacifier back, certain that it will soon fall out again, one user of British parenting site ‘The Motherload’ has come up with an ingeniously simple solution.
Instead of a single pacifier in the crib, which can easily be misplaced or fall down the sides, Laura Gerson posted her tactic, which is to simply place 10 or more pacifiers all around the crib. This is like a ‘bar’ for her baby Amelia, who can reach out as soon as the pacifier drops and almost instantly find a replacement. “She isn’t a total dummy-fiend and doesn’t even have them through the day really, but it really soothes her having them through the night,” Laura told Popsugar.
The post quickly went viral and was met with gratitude and amazement from parents who couldn’t believe that they hadn’t thought of such a simple hack earlier. Scroll down below to check it out, and feel free to share your own parenting hacks in the comments!
Being a new parent is hard, especially if you’re sleep deprived
This mum shared a hack on how she sleeps through the night every night
“Since my little one was about 3 months she’s gone to bed with 10 dummies in with her”
“I found that when she cried of a night all she wanted was a dummy, then she’d go back off”
“She isn’t a total dummy-fiend and doesn’t even have them through the day really, but it really soothes her having them through the night”
Immediately after sharing the post, parents started to congratulate her on the hack, agreeing that it does indeed work
Others had a very different pacifier policy
And some believe that it’s simply every parents choice, defending those who use pacifiers
What do you think about this hack? Would you try it with your children?
