so much TV, so little sleep

After a week of all-night baby action (and...a marathon of leftover episodes of Alias), I had the following apocalyptic fantasy:

If you could somehow make it so all the babies in the world were up all night long, you could really do a lot of damage to the planet.

No, really...is it the moon or something? I heard another kid was awake all night this week too. Coincidence?

guess what? there is a study! Moon doesn't make a difference but, on a side note, siestas do. We should all demand naps in the workplace. http://cnn.netscape.cnn.com/ns/news/package.jsp?name=fte/moonaffectsleep/moonaffectsleep

Hi there, I saw your blog and thought you might be interested in posting my information about a program that really helps put babies to sleep. I work for a company who has developed a product called Sounds for Silence, and that is exactly what happens when you practice this technique with your baby. Basically it is a program developed by a pediatrician with over 25 years of experience and practices a technique known as SMS. It is simply a combination of security (swaddling your baby), movement (engaging your baby in repetitive movements), and sounds (rhythmic, consistent, low frequency noises). In fact, we've asked parents to try it out and have found 96.8% of babies were soothed by Sounds of Silence and over half of the babies were settled in less than 60 seconds. It is a truly amazing product. To find out more, check out http://www.soundsforsilence.com.au
