Vapour Rub has many benefits, it has anti-fungal properties, it can soothe tired muscles and joints (and boy! we have them after a day with the children), it can heal sunburn, be used to moisturise your skin, help you combat dry cracked heals and calluses, it can even provide pain relief for ear infections and soothe dry itchy ears, with headaches, acne, dandruff…

The list is infinite!

But did you know if you rub a bit on the soles of your little ones feet right before bedtime it can help with their night time snuffles and so aid a good night’s sleep!

Amazing!

‘Sleep Deprivation Results’ resonate with Why won’t my baby sleep

Sleep deprivation – we feel your pain!! Because sometimes you just need to have a laugh about it all. Stay sane.

Still not understanding

One of the most frustrating things about a sleepless baby is that some people you meet often think they know why your baby is not sleeping, and that somehow, you are doing something wrong. They may not say these words exactly but somehow an off-hand comment can seem quite cutting and a snippet of advice like “Why not try tiring them out during the day” will only make you angry. Sarcasm is never a good response and often a punch is deemed inappropriate. People who are parents themselves often forget what you are currently experiencing.
 
“Mine were good and slept for 12 hours every night as soon as we brought them home from the hospital.” Another classic.
