Does this song put your child to sleep? Experts say it should

You could be only eight minutes away from getting your child to drift into a peaceful sleep. No rocking, bouncing, singing, tickling, feeding, patting or jiggling required.

According to a team of neuroscientists, the secret to sounder sleep in children is all in this one song. Come and test it out for yourself.

The sound of sleep

Many parents know the pain of having a child who won’t self settle. It can take hours every day trying to get your little one to fall asleep, only to be woken up an hour later and having to go through the whole ordeal again.

While many parents rely on rigid routines, sleep schools and special comfort objects to help with self settling, neuroscientists at Mindlab International have said they have solution that is sure-thing.

Weightless – an eight minute song of low pitches, sounds from nature and manipulated instrumental tones.

Dubbed the most relaxing song in the world, Weightless has some pretty amazing figures backing up this claim. Researcher Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson says that Weightless reduced anxiety in participants by 65 per cent and reduced the resting heart rates in participants by 35 per cent.

When an infant is this relaxed, it’s much easier to simply fall to sleep, without the need to rely on being fed, rocked or patted.

Weightless is a collaboration between Marconi Union and the British Academy of Sound Therapy and is said to put listeners into a trance-like state. We have to admit, the music is quite trippy yet tranquil. This, mums and dads, just might work!
