How to make a baby sleep

Clients are always amazed at how I am able to make their baby sleep. Many an exhausted mum has uttered the words (in jest) " Can I just leave her here for a few hours and go home and have some sleep!" Or "Can you come over and just do that at 2 in the morning!"

I do have a few tips, many that I share with you in our newborn photography session, but the key one is white noise. I have an app that runs through my phone and at the end of the session I am so glad to switch it off. It may well be soothing to babies but it makes my head spin! Sometimes I switch to womb sounds but really most babies tend the like the white noise. Oh I also should mention you can download a white noise app for free - may just save your sanity!
