Most parents will know the sheer exhaustion that only having a small child can create.
If you have a baby or toddler who struggles to sleep through the night, it’s likely you’ve spent countless nights surfing the web for tips and tricks of how to get them off to dreamland.
A few years back, a group of parents were ecstatic when they discovered the Lush Sleepy Lotion, which some said got their little ones to sleep for up to 14 hours.
It appears there may now be a new kid on the block when it comes to baby sleep aids, and it’s being touted as ‘magic’.
26-year-old Chloe Bashford was flat-out, with her 6-month-old son Joshua waking every ten minutes throughout the night while teething.
The mum-of-four, from Newhaven in East Sussex, said: ‘I was constantly up in the night with him and it made bedtime really stressful and unenjoyable.
‘He is teething, so he’s been extra clingy recently. He would scream every 10 to 15 minutes and I would be up and down all night without fail comforting him.’
As Chloe’s partner Josh works nights, she was tasked with night feeds and comforting Joshua and her other three children all by herself, and was at her wit’s end.
Scrolling the net for anything to help, she came across Bloom and Blossom’s baby Pillow Spray, initially being attracted by the Very Hungry Caterpillar packaging.
At just £9.99, the spray contains Sicilian lavender and ylang ylang, as well as jasmine, amber and mandarin to help baby drift off.
Chloe calls the spray a ‘magic potion’, and now relies on it to get Joshua and her other children to sleep.
‘He nods off almost instantly, sleeping through from 9pm for eight hours every single night I’ve used it,’ said Chloe.
‘My new routine is working wonders – I feed him, give a baby massage, pop him in his pyjamas and then use the pillow spray five to 10 minutes before bed and slowly settle him down for the night.’
It’s so good, she’s even bought it for her husband to help him get to sleep after night shifts: ‘My husband didn’t believe me until I started sending him pictures of Joshua fast asleep and now we’ve bought one for our bed and our other three children.’
Christina Moss and Julia Yule, co-founders of Bloom and Blossom, said: ‘With five children between us, we know the trials and tribulations of settling into a bedtime routine all too well, and we’re delighted that Chloe has found a solution with our pillow spray.’
