Of course, there's no guarantee that this trick will work for every kid as fast— or at all, really— but we'll try anything if our baby won't sleep, right?
There are a few other classic methods that are worth giving a shot as well. Try brushing their hair with one of those soft bristled baby brushes, lightly scratching their back, or rubbing their belly.
