Dad Uses A "Vulcan Mind Sleep" Trick To Get His Baby Asleep In Seconds Flat
When you're a parent with an infant child, one of the most dreaded tasks is trying to get the baby to fall asleep. Everyone has either seen or heard of some kind of weird "trick" to make it happen - long car rides, certain songs, certain positions, etc. but YouTuber nugimon has probably got the greatest trick of all time. It's called the "Vulcan Mind Sleep," named after the telepathic Vulcans from "Star Trek" and it puts his baby to sleep in less than a minute. All he does is put his hand gently on the baby's face to encourage closing the eyes. After a few passes, the baby is fast asleep!
Many commenters on YouTube say that this or similar techniques worked quite well for their kids too, while others had less positive results (one person's baby just laughed at them). Perhaps there's something about the gentle pressure and darkness that helps soothe some babies into falling asleep. For the millions of parents exhausted by the thought of bedtime for their baby, it's gotta at least be worth a shot.
