Clever ways to get baby to sleep

As parents we are inundated with advice about caring for our children and the subject of getting baby to sleep is always a hot topic. If the internet is anything to go by, there are multiple miracle answers, so here's a few of the more interesting methods. Do any of them work for you? Or do you have a completely different approach? Share in the comments below.

If all else fails ...
