The Most Brilliant Solution to Getting Your Child to Sleep
If you're a new parent -- or a parent in general -- you know the pain of not getting any rest because your child won't sleep. Whether they're a newborn or toddler, it's very likely YOU'VE lost a lot of sleep, because your little one wouldn't sleep.
Actually, parents lose about 44 DAYS of sleep during the first year of a child's life. And often, the best way to ease a child into slumber is taking them for a car ride. (Of course, not always a good idea when you're a sleepy parent...)
Ford knows where their bread is buttered...and introduced a "one-off publicity" thing called Max Motor Dreams. The crib mimics a car ride, complete with a gentle rocking motion, the light hum of a motor, and LED lights that mock passing traffic lights. It was initially to showcase how relaxing their new vehicle is...but naturally it got a lot of attention from sleep-deprived parents.
So they're thinking of actually making them. (We will DEFINITELY keep you posted if this ever becomes a thing!)
Honestly, I'd love one of these for myself, adult-sized! Nothing lulls me to sleep more than someone else doing the driving and me shutting my eyes!
This begs the question -- what does your child NEED to sleep?
What do YOU absolutely have to have in order to fall asleep?
