WATCH: This baby falls asleep in under 1 minute with this dad’s ’tissue trick’


Sive O'Brien

If you’ve got a baby who fights sleep, you’ve probably tried various things – singing, rocking, driving, white noise, blackout blinds – to help them drift off. I know, I’ve been there.

But have you ever tried this dad’s unusual method? Commenting on his You Tube page, Nathan Dailo wrote, “I’m sure every parent tries new things to put their little one to sleep. Watch as my wife and I put our three-month-old baby boy, Seth, to sleep in under a minute using nothing but a piece of tissue paper. What’s the weirdest method you’ve used to put your little one to sleep?”

As the video shows, Seth is awake when his dad begins lightly touching his face with a tissue. After around 15 seconds, the little cutie can’t fight it any longer as his eyelids become heavy; by the end of the 41-second video he is fast asleep.

Interesting. I don’t know about you but I feel sleepy just watching this.
