Natural Sleep Remedies the New Bedtime Stories for Kids, says Aussie Mum
QUEENSLAND, Australia December 2013 – Despite her third child being a ’cat napper’ as a little baby, and then difficult to settle to sleep as a toddler, Victorian mum Deb Herdman says she didn’t set out to write a sleep lullaby ... “It just happened,” says Deb. “My son Tyler wouldn’t unwind and relax at bedtime, sometimes still being awake at 10.00 or 11.00 at night despite trying different bedtime stories for kids, counting sheep, warm milk, natural sleep remedies and more – nothing worked. He would keep getting out of his bed with lots of reasons why he should get up. The legitimate reasons of being thirsty, hungry, need to go to the bathroom, room too dark, and so on, test even the most patient after hearing them over a couple of hours.”
When Deb decided to pursue her lifelong ambition of learning how to play the piano, she uncovered a natural talent. Just one year after her first lesson, Deb’s pianist teacher suggested working on an original composition and right there and then Deb sat down and composed a piece of music which is now known as the “Nigh’ Nigh’ Sleepy Head Lullaby”. http://nighnigh.com.au/
Deb played it for then three-year old Tyler and she knew immediately it was special as it settled him to sleep. Deb did extensive research and found that nothing like “Nigh’ Nigh’ Sleepy Head Lullaby” was available to parents who have children that find it difficult to settle for sleep, and she knew she couldn’t keep it all to herself. Unlike simple bedtime stories for kids, Nigh’ Nigh’ Sleepy Head Lullaby has simple lyrics combined with instrumental meditative qualities and other features to enhance the relaxation to sleep process all on the one CD, which is unique when compared with other natural sleep remedies available for children.”
Jess, from Bendigo, says “My two year old loves her ’Sleepy Head’ CD and bear. Within 10 minutes she is calm and happy to stay in bed. She also rocks ”TED" to sleep in her arms, whilst singing ‘nigh nigh baby’.” http://nighnigh.com.au/
In addition to the popular CD, Deb has developed other merchandise to put fun into the bedtime routine, which can be tearful and anxious for kids (and frustrating for parents) when children just won’t go to sleep. “The feedback from parents has been very positive, with parents always commenting that the music is so rhythmical and relaxing not only for their children, but also for themselves. The lullaby is a godsend in the car, when kids are crying, and is just as effective when on holiday, camping or places where kids need to relax to fall asleep,” says Deb.
