There is a new trick for parents who are struggling to get their newborns to sleep: Pink noise.
Sleep expert, Elizabeth Pantley – author of No-Cry Sleep Solution - has suggested that this could be the solution for a good night’s rest.
So what exactly is pink noise?
According to Pantley it "is a variant of white noise that sounds deep, rich, and monotonous."
Pantley says that babies seem to "distrust totally quiet rooms". Pink noise helps add an element of comfort by breaking that silence and allowing your little ones to drift off quicker.
And it’s not just for children - pink noise can be just as relaxing for adults.
"Once you [get used to it], it will blend into your night-time routine easily," Pantley says.
