A mother was having a difficult time keeping her baby girl asleep, but when she realized what the problem was, she hatched a plan that was so successful that most parents who learned the trick praised her for coming up with a great solution to keeping their babies calm as they sleep through the night.
Laura Gerson’s baby girl is an example of these babies. Amelia would wake up frequently, thus making it an exhausting task for her mother. Laura wanted to make sure that Amelia was always comfortable, so that she could get an ample amount of rest.
Laura soon realized that Amelia would wake up because she always dropped her pacifier. Once Amelia misplaces it, she would start to fuss and then wake up. As soon as Laura recognized this, she came up with a plan to soothe Amelia without her getting up.

She placed ten pacifiers, which she called dummies around the bed. That way, should Amelia drop the pacifier in her mouth; she could just reach around for another one close to her. Laura soon saw that when she executed this plan, that Amelia was able to sleep more soundly through the night.
She then shared the idea on the FB group The Motherload and parents loved it. After a few days, the post got more attention and was eventually posted on the Facebook group’s website. She claims that the post has been shared around and taken note of by other parents.
Since it was checked last, Laura mentioned that she did this so that Amelia wouldn’t get stressed every time she lost her pacifier.
Now Amelia sleeps soundly every night.
