If you’re looking for a way to keep your kid still and calm, look no further than glow-in-the-dark pajamas and a little white lie.
That’s what one mom, Jessica D’Entremont, did with her two daughters. She said, “Tell them they have to lie really still under the light to ‘charge’ them. I’m not even sorry!”
It all started after a particularly hectic and busy day with her girls. When they got home, she knew they all needed to calm down, and the girls have sensory processing disorders, making common sounds sometimes painful or overwhelming–so, Jessica’s idea came to life and she took to social media to share her new parenting hack with others.
It has become a part of their daily bedtime routine and Jessica says it helps.
“We do it every day before bedtime now as a part of their sensory diet,” she explained. “We also use essential oils to help support sleep and calm so this is a great way to get some stillness.”
