Tips to help get a sleepy baby
Ever have those times where you just cannot get your little baby to sleep? When I was a new mama I thankfully already knew the 5 S's technique from learning them at a newborn photography training course. It was some of the best tips I had ever gotten for both professional and personal use. Now both my girls are far from great sleepers haha BUT they were quick to fall asleep when I used this technique.

Your baby has been kept wrapped up tight in your warm white noise belly for the last 9 months and then gets pushed or pulled out into a cold big world. The motions and sounds listed above are the closest thing baby feels to being back safe and sound in your belly. I could try and explain each of these but I think watching it works much better. Here is a link where you can watch a video on this method.
I promise this will save you mamas!
