Magic Fairy Dust Helps Kid Fall Asleep

27 Sep

A grateful parent posted this paean to the Sleep Fairy, and it’s amazingly similar to what my niece told me years ago – she’s the one who put me onto this phenom of a snooze-inducing CD for kids.

She had a child with night terrors who was too scared to fall asleep.  Nights were hellish for the whole family for months – not to mention the cranky, exhausted days that followed.

They tried all sorts of things, but to no avail. Then a friend suggested she try this CD, and it was like blessed magic fairy dust. Suddenly they had a sleeping child. It was right away. 

Here’s the post I just discovered – it tells a similar tale: 

I can't even believe it. It's only been 2 nights, but you don't understand what I have gone through for the last 5 years!!!  It has always taken my daughter at least an hour to fall asleep every night.....constantly getting up, asking questions, you name it! She was asleep in 20 min the first night and 15 min the second night!! I recommend this for ALL Moms and Dads!!!!

So there you have it.  A little story time, a little relaxation, a little imagery – it works magic.
