The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep

Spread the love

For nearly three years, I slept in two hour intervals after my second and third child were born. To say I was sleep-deprived would be an understatement!  Many days I felt more like a zombie than a mom, going through the motions of feeding, changing diapers, rocking the babies and so on. Can you relate?

Years later, I thought “Thank goodness they are growing up! Now I can get some rest!”  Err… nope! Things just didn’t work out that easy as my sons resisted early bedtimes and found every reason they could to try to sneak in just a few more minutes of alert time before drifting off.  I wish I had a resource then like THE RABBIT WHO WANTS TO FALL ASLEEP by Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin!  With this lovely, helpful book I could have rested a lot easier during those toddler years!

The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep #RabbitGoToSleep

About the Book:

The groundbreaking #1 bestseller is sure to turn nightly bedtime battles into a loving and special end-of-day ritual. This child-tested, parent-approved story uses an innovative technique that brings a calm end to any child’s day.

Do you struggle with getting your child to fall asleep?

Join parents all over the world who have embraced The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep as their new nightly routine.

When Roger can’t fall asleep, Mommy Rabbit takes him to see Uncle Yawn, who knows just want to do. Children will join Roger on his journey and be lulled to sleep alongside their new friend.

Carl-Johan Forssén Ehrlin’s simple story uses a unique and distinct language pattern that will help your child relax and fall asleep — at bedtime or naptime.

    Getting my toddler to sleep isn’t much of a struggle but she keeps waking up during the night a lot. I need help dealing with her in the middle of the night and getting her back to sleep.

    Yes! those hours from dinner to bedtime were always the most difficult. Baths and books seem to help make the transition easier.

    I would love to win this prize pack! My daughter is almost a year and a half and we love bedtime stories. She loves books! This would be really great because hopefully it will make her drift off so she doesn’t keep asking me to read “more” every night 🙂
