IT MAY HAVE ELUDED you until now but with a few easy adjustments, I’ll show you how to achieve the Holy Grail of parenthood: a loving and calm, tantrum-free bedtime routine. Picture the scene if you will. You’ve spent the best part of an hour coaxing your child to sleep, pleading with them to close their eyes. You’re at least three bedtime stories down and STILL they refuse to lie still or let you leave the room. By some miraculous intervention from some higher power they finally give in to the tug of slumber and you hastily retreat into the sanctuary of your grown-up space completely exhausted. Victory is yours. For ten whole minutes before they charge out of their room announcing they need a drink, the bathroom and a fourth story. Sounds familiar? For what it’s worth, you’re not alone. In my experience parents the world over struggle to get their kids to sleep quickly and without quarrel. Well, the solution is a little closer than you may realise. Enter the calm, perfectly balanced, serene parent. That’s you.

This is because as a new mother, her whole universe revolved around you as a baby and loads and loads of nappies that she would have to change regularly because you would soil them so often. That is exactly why the word challenging became synonymous with motherhood. But not anymore because later came the disposable diapers. Halleluiah! They have been the best thing to ever happen to mankind, or shall we say womankind? Yes, because they are disposable, safe, easy to use, and life savers for mothers.
