Car rides

The age old trick of taking baby for a ride in the car to get them to sleep is an old favorite because it does usually work! If it doesn’t usually work for your little one, try driving on a bumpy, brick road. The vibration and sensations will comfort your baby allowing them to fall fast asleep.
