All mothers will agree to this, anything that helps babies sleep is a life saver 🙂
If you remember our mother or grandmother used to sing lori (or lullaby in english). These songs have a soft rhythmic sound which calms down the baby and helps him or her sleep. These songs used to give them a sense of security. And in our culture this has been a tradition from time immemorial.
Today the time is changing and there are many other tools available to us. There are some cool apps for your mobile or tabs. There are some toys which help babies clam down and sleep. Lets look at some of them
Ewan The Dream Sheep
Quite popular in western countries, I could see that it is available on amazon.in as well. It is a well researched product.
It can be placed next to baby while sleeping and plays real heartbeat and womb sound combinations that mimic the noises babies hear inside the womb. This definitely has a soothing effect on new born babies.
