A month ago I saw an ad for a product on Facebook promising to assist in better sleep for babies. I have not had one full, uninterrupted night of sleep since Adam was born. In fact, I have been waking up 4-6 times a night since he was 8 months old to nurse. That’s not bad compared to the 8 times a night prior!
Ben was never a frequent waker. He would wake 2-3 times a night as an infant and by the time he was 12 months old he was sleeping in his own room and waking once a night.
I knew I needed help so I was excited to try Wink Naturals Pure Sleep and Breathe Rub. It’s an all natural ointment with ingredients like lavender and eucalyptus to help relax your baby and also open up their sinuses so they can breathe better. I think it would be really great when Adam has a cold to help him breathe better at night. Right now, though, I want to use it just to help him sleep. I want to help take that extra little edge off so he can relax and ease into sleep without a lot of crying. When the rub arrived I applied it on his chest and he really enjoyed breathing in the smell-he even held the jar in his hands to smell it. I noticed that the first night we used it he did sleep longer than he’s ever slept in one time. He actually slept seven hours straight! Normally he only sleeps three hours max.
I have now weaned him from daytime feedings except for going down for nap and I also weaned him of his bedtime feeding. He has overall been sleeping better at night-which means fewer night feedings. Now after a couple weeks of continued use I can say it is a great all natural product to help my baby sleep better.
