Four simple ways to fall asleep quick!

During this time the hardest thing for me has been sleep. Yes... I do have a one-year-old who sleeps extremely well! But currently the main questions in my mind is... When will this Quarantine be over? Will I be spending my birthday in quarantine? When will my husband have to go back to work? I could go on and on but we don't have the time. I know I’m not the only one who has all these questions. If you really sit down and think about it- it will keep you up all night.

Sleep Tones Machine

When I was pregnant with Ava, I actually used my Apple Music to download tones so I could get some good sleep.  I was super happy to be gifted with Sonorest Sleep Tones Machine ($49.00 CAN). It comes with 3 sound spectrums: White, pink and brown. My favourite is white. Available at Shoppers Drugmart and Rexall.

If you can try a nice bath before bed. You remember the old wives tale that if you want your baby to sleep throughout the night give them a soothing bath to calm down before bed. If it works for babies why wouldn’t it work for us? Try adding some Dr Teal’s Lavender Epsom Salts ($9.99 CAN). It can calm your muscles while you soak and it smells AMAZING!

More Sleeping Aids
Last... but not least. This one I would definitely recommend you do some research before. Hyland’s homeopathic Calm Forté ($9.99 CAN) is a natural sleeping aid. There are no sedatives in it- It's actually comprised of four botanicals. Available at London Drugs and
