Is your Baby not sleeping?

There never seems to be any rhyme or reason as to why, but your baby not sleeping can be so upsetting… You have tried absolutely everything in the Handbook and nothing seems to be working… You run through the check list –

  • They’re not hungry…
  • They have a dry nappy…
  • They dont have wind…

So why is your baby not sleeping?

There is nothing more upsetting to a Parent or a GrandParent or even an Aunt or Uncle (Yes – we count too and love those bubs just as much as you do!) And you will try ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you can to calm them down and remove their discomfort… A baby not sleeping is unsettling for everyone involved…

This was certainly one of the main reasons i created Rockabyboo, as at one time or another we struggled with settling my nieces and nephews down to sleep… I can say ‘we’ because for the first 2 weeks after most of them were born, i was living in with them and helping out – Especially with the night feeds (Amazingly no one else wanted to do that job!)

I particularly remember Walter, (who ironically is the best sleeper of them all now) and his struggle to sleep – certainly within the first few months of him being born… My sister was forever vising the doctor and worrying about him and it wasnt long before my voice was called in to help! It was clear that when i held him across my body and held him tight, it would offer him some relief… I would then sing my Lullabies to him and before long he would drift off to Dreamland… It was such a relief just to know he was going to get even a few moments of rest…

It was then that my sister asked if i would record the Lullabies so that she could play them in his nursery as she believed they certainly helped to soothe him… And so i did! It was just a demo CD that i created on Garage Band on my Mac OSX but it was enough; and more importantly IT WORKED!

Needless to say, a few copies got made! For my other sister and brother and some of their friends – and they played those CD’s pretty much until they were scratched to death!

They were all over the Moon when RockabyBoo came along and they all continue to enjoy the App wherever they are! Infact they often say to their friends with Babies & Children who wont sleep, “When nothing else will do, try RockabyBoo!”

Please do let me know if RockabyBoo has helped you in settling your little ones… Id love to hear from you!
