My husband got our baby daughter sleeping through the night with a quick trick that takes just minutes
Parents of young children will know the absolute anguish of being woken up by a crying baby several times a night.
Chloe Gordon, from Detroit, revealed on TikTok how her husband Aaron found a way to help their daughter Edie sleep complete nights.
She revealed that Aaron, who’s been responsible for Edie’s routine since her birth, feeds her oats right before bed.
It is believed that oats are a ‘good’ carbohydrate that encourage the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone, leading to better sleep.
Many parents discovering Chloe’s video on TikTok promised to try the hack for themselves, while others who were familiar with the trick agreed it had also helped their own children settle for the night.
