    21 Products That’ll Basically Make Any Sleep-Deprived Parent Cry From Relief

    As they say, "Parent sleep is like regular sleep but without the sleep."

    1. Comforting Frida Baby vapor drops with organic eucalyptus and lavender essential oils to plop in your bath or humidifier to relieve stuffiness and congestion and ~open up airways~ for a restful snooze. *Instant relief for them and for you.*

    2. A pack of blackout shades for any parent looking for a quick fix to keep the sun out that doesn't involve shelling out $$ for a fancy-schmancy solution. Reviewers say these install in 15 minutes flat — all you need to do is trim, peel and stick (Perfect for travel, too!)

    3. Or blackout curtains bedazzled with sparkly stars that look just like the night sky and block out light ~so darn well~, you'll thank them over and over when your early risers don't wake up at the crack of dawn.

    4. A tub of brightening, firming eye cream to help banish dark circles and puffiness and help you look ~so well rested~ that you might (...might) forget you were up until 4 a.m. with a teething toddler.

    Promising review: "I’m a working mom of two toddlers and 34 years old, I get maybe 5.5 hrs of sleep a night (on a good day), and I always have puffy eyes, and this has been a life changer. I noticed an almost immediate noticeable change around my eyes since using this eye cream. I was looking for a more affordable eye cream and found this highly rated one and decided to try it!!! A little of this goes a long way. I also use it on my fine lines and my neck." —Sara Nich

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    5. A pillow spray made with lavender water and chamomile. Just a tiny spritz will permeate your bedding with calming aromas and help the whole fam wind down. Sweet dreams are made of this.

    6. An ingenious portable vibrating pad you can tuck in a crib mattress, bassinet, car seat, or stroller to create gentle vibrations to help your munchkin drift off just about anywhere. No more driving desperately around the block playing Cocomelon's "Yes Yes Bedtime Song" on repeat to get them to sleep.

    7. An inexpensive portable white noise machine that'll lull babies (and adults!) to sleep with its calming, spa-like sounds at home or on the go. It has thousands of 5-star reviews for a reason!

    8. A combination sleep mask with wireless headphones so you can zone out to your favorite chill tunes and become blissfully oblivious to the noisy little monsters in the next room. Reviewers say it's padded and ultra-comfy, making it especially great for side sleepers.

    9. Or a contoured sleep mask with form-fitting memory foam that won't press into your eyes and an adjustable strap that won't tangle in your hair, but most importantly, it'll make everything pitch black, getting you the REM sleep you haven't experienced since pre-baby days.

    10. A cat-shaped night-light so *purrfectly* soft your little ones can actually snuggle with it in bed. Bonus: This one won't throw shade — quite the opposite.

    11. A sleep-focused essential-oils blend made with chamomile, sage, and lavender to add to your diffuser that'll fill your home with relaxed and ~melty vibes~ so everyone can doze off faster.

    12. The Honest Company Truly Calming bubble bath to truly soothe any little whirlwind (especially when that *second wind* is kicking in). It lathers up so luxuriously, you'll probably want to sneak in a sesh for yourself. 🕯️🛀🏻

    13. A sleep-training alarm clock that uses colors and stinkin' cute *facial expressions* to teach the kiddos when it's time for bed and time to wake up. (Does it make a grumpy face if they hop out of bed at 5 a.m.? Asking for a friend.)

    14. A weighted blanket for encapsulating your restless sleeper in a deep, calming hug to help them fall asleep...and *stay* asleep.

    15. Glow-in-the-dark dinosaur decals to bring Jurassic Park to life on the walls and actually get kiddos excited to sleep in their *own* room.

    17. Mommy's Bliss Nighttime Gripe Water that was an absolute *godsend* with our fussy, gassy, colicky newborn. It worked almost instantly to help him settle down on nights when literally everything else failed (gas drops, rocking, you name it).

    18. A gently weighted sleep sack because you've been up at an ungodly hour googling *baby sleep solutions*. This soft swaddle is designed to feel like a calming, reassuring hand on your baby's chest.

    19. A seahorse ~baby whisperer~ with a glowing belly and mysterious magical powers that'll play lullabies, classical tunes, and ocean sounds when it's squeezed to inexplicably soothe little ones to sleep.

    20. A three-in-one night-light, sound machine, and time-to-rise device you can control from your phone to create custom light and sound programs in sync with bedtime, nap time, and wake-up routines — so they know when it's time to hit the sack and when it's OK to come running to your room.

    21. And finally, a personalized bedtime reward chart that'll motivate reluctant kiddos to go to bed and stay in bed, so you can catch a few extra ZZZs in the morning 🙏
