Lauren Session, 31, was caring for her sister’s baby while she was hospitalised, when she rediscovered the power of white noise.
When three-week-old baby A’mire wouldn’t stop crying Session’s tried a hack that used to work when her own child was a baby.
The sound of running water soothed A’mire so much that she not only stopped sobbing but soon drifted off to sleep.
“I hadn’t taken care of a baby in almost five years and this baby was very fussy because I believe she was missing her mum and I wasn’t getting any sleep after just working a 12hr shift,” Lauren said.
Registered Nurse Lauren, has a four-and-a-half-year-old called Dalani, and she said that this trick used to work for her.
“I had tried numerous of things but nothing seemed to work. I then remembered when my daughter was a baby and had a fussy moment, I would go into the bathroom and run the bathtub water and that would soothe her.
“I went into my bathroom and turned on the sink and placed her in a football position and just rocked her and to my surprised it worked.
“I had actually got some sleep that night after numerous of sleepless nights – I was ecstatic.”
Since posting the video Lauren has had numerous messages from people thanking her for the tip, and for a good night’s sleep.
“I’m grateful and I’m so happy I could share my story with people all over the world and help because that’s what I love doing.
“It’s crazy, I would have never thought it would hit over 3 million views and over 500 friend requests and thousands of likes and shares.”
