Poetry Friday: Sleep, Baby, Sleep

I love the image of the dreamland tree, don't you? Off to get my sketchbook! ~Lorie Ann

Sleep, Baby, Sleep

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Thy papa guards the sheep;
Thy mama shakes the dreamland tree
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee,
Sleep, baby, sleep,

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Our cottage vale is deep;
The little lamb is on the green,
With woolly fleece so soft and clean,
Sleep, baby, sleep,

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Down where the woodbines creep;
Be always like the lamb so mild,
A kind and sweet and gentle child,
Sleep, baby, sleep.

Well, it's time to practice my child it's a really hard sleeper... This song will be a perfect match with the instrumental song buy kamagra, I guess it would sound very nice.
Thanks for sharing.

Hard to Believe: This Keeps Your Baby Awake At Night

Dear Sleepless Mother,

It “waits” for you to put your baby to sleep

And is “ jumping of joy” when you start rocking or swinging your little one

Because it knows the next thing you do opesn the gates…...and invites midnight wakefulness into your baby’s sensitive brain and body

I’m talking about this simple habit

Could one simple habit increase the risk of your baby waking up in the middle of the night......by 87%? “It’s like setting a midnight fire alarm in his brain”, one study revealed

The worst part is that you keep doing it ……it’s part of your routine……and yet it’s wrecking your little one’s sleep

So what is this disruptive habit? And what can you do to fix it?
