Parents have a new trick to get kids to sleep and they're calling it 'life-changing'

Getting young children to sleep through the night is tough. Even those without kids are well aware.

Most parents accept that having a child means saying goodbye to a decent night's sleep for a few years at least. There is always an expert opinion or trick knocking around, but what works for one baby might not be the best for another.

And don't even get us started on the sleep regression phases.

However, parents are praising a simple hack involving a lime for getting their children to snooze all night long with many calling it "life-changing". Shared on social media the trick has quickly become a viral trend with mums and dads raving about it.

Aussie influencer, psychic medium, and mum-of-two Jessica Lynne revealed she places a lime, that has been cut in half, in a bowl of water and puts it in her toddlers' room. She wrote next to her video: "A hack like no other. SAVE THIS because there's no need to struggle with sleep again!"


Revealing that her sceptical friend had tried it and loved it, she continued: "My friend even checked the cameras in the house to see if her son's were still there LOL. Limes have helped hundreds of my clients families sleep well. Picture this.... Your kids sleeping through the night. No longer waking up to a toddler in your bed! No more talk of 'MONSTERS' in their bedrooms at night"

"Limes are an amazing cleansing agent that rid negative fear based energies and any dark entities that have made their way into your house. It's really important that you know how to use the limes properly!"

"Cut a lime in half, put the two halves in a dish and put them in your bedrooms (make sure you keep them away from your pets as they are toxic to them). You can also diffuse lime around your house to promote calmness and clean slate energy."

While people under her initial post sounded dubious, with many remarking that the only way limes could get them to sleep was if they were accompanied by tequila, it wasn't long before the reviews started flowing in.

One parent replied: "MY DAUGHTER SLEPT 10 HOURS UNINTERRUPTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE AFTER I DID THIS !!!!!! It could be a coincidence but before this she would only sleep 3-5 hour stretches." And another user added: "Stop it. THIS. Freaking. Worked. Life changing."

Shared again on Reddit, one woman penned: "A random video popped up on my insta from a woman telling her 'client' to put a half cut lime in a bowl their kids' rooms to help them sleep through the night. She says she's a medium..."

"And then someone I actually follow stitches the same video and said it worked for their kid who had never slept 10 hours straight in their life! Fine. We've got limes. I cut one in half and put it in a bowl in my 3 year old's room."

She finished: "Y'all, he has slept from 8-7 in his bed for three nights in a row. I don't know what in the voodoo magic this is, but we bought a lime tree."
