"I saw a video on TikTok of someone saying that if you give your baby a banana before bed they will sleep through the night.
"Anyone who knows me knows that I have had the absolute worst sleeper since the day she was born.
"We started the banana trick, we're about eight months in and she sleeps through the night!"
That's right, a banana so no need for bonkers chants or special tricks and other sleep-deprived parents are thrilled.
"OMG! I wanna cry right now.," commented one person. "I hope this works for us! Eight-month-old refuses to sleep longer than 30 minutes alone."

Another added, "Bananas have magnesium and magnesium makes you sleep."
"Races to buy a whole forest of bananas," chimed in another, who added, "My son is two and has slept through the night three times in his life."
Allison later added, "Please keep in mind that my 'baby' is almost three. We started doing this well after two years old."
