"Lullaby for babies" 1 or 2 make my 11-months old fall directly to sleep. His favorite is Sound 3 from "Lullaby for babies" 2. You can download this from Google Play, it's available for all Android versions. Personally I have an old Android 2.3.1 phone, dedicated just for this. The time of play is adjustable from 10 minutes to 7 hours.

If you have an old iPhone or iPod you can play any playlist and set a timer I'm the timer app selecting "Stop playing" for the "on timer ends" action. This will work even if the device is plugged into a set of speakers.

Via Wikipedia: Some clock radios also have a "sleep" timer, which turns the music from radio on for a set amount of time (usually around one hour). This is useful for people who like to fall asleep with the radio on. My alarm clock has a button that turns it on for exactly 59 minutes, and I often use it . This is 1990's technology, so I'm not sure if ...

Some noise all night is often a good thing. We use off and on a white noise machine that plays soft sounds, like ocean waves or rainforest sounds or similar, and it seems to help my sons stay asleep sometimes. Soft music probably also falls into that category (though it's not free of course in any event, hopefully it's a fairly low energy using device - ...

Our foster kids are 7 and 8 and we're still figuring things out but here's what I've found that make a difference: Absolutely no chocolate after 4 PM. They need a lot of exercise during the day to be physically tired. Soft music. We actually have this goofy iPad app called Jazz Radio set to Smooth Jazz. Fiddle with the lights. Sometimes they need the ...

All my children around that age had a certain time that was just right. Put them to bed early and they would be too excited to sleep until way after their bedtime. Put them to bed too late and they would stay up late, too. What time this was depended a lot on the children, age, and time of year. (In winter, when it's dark early, they are tired, and sleep ...

My son was a bed wetter until he was 8 and his father and I split. I mean it stopped as soon as he left. Maybe stress?

It really should pass, however I know that the addition of shame can prolong and even make the issue worse. Waking her up with break up her sleep and make her more tired. My experience is that bedwetting is best solved with rewards and celebration of success. Ultimately if it continues to 10+years old there may be trauma that is contributing to the ...

My wife is the school nurse at an outdoor school (sixth grade camp) and this problem is very common among the sixth graders (10-11 year olds) she sees. They've developed procedures so these kids can attend successfully without the other kids knowing. As annoying as this is, it will pass. Adding shame, even unintentionally, will help nothing and hurt a lot. ...

Bed wetting, even at 7 years old, is common. About 1 in 40 children at that age wet the bed. Children usually grow out of it. Stop waking her in the night. That doesn't help. Make sure she is drinking plenty in the day time. This will help her train her bladder. She should reduce the amount she drinks in the evenings. Make going to the loo last thing ...
