    If I'm not too tired to drive, definitely that! And once he's asleep I get a mcflurry through the drive thru.

    As a baby I put them in the pram and push it around the lounge. If I can go over a small bump that works even better.

    I usually let her stay up for a few more minutes, if it's been a hard day and she's really overtired I hold her in my arms and just talk quietly until she calms down and drifts off

    If she really can't sleep I let my 3 year old watch tv with me (something really boring on ABC works best). After 5-10 mins she usually takes herself off to bed.

    I have fond memories of occasionally staying up watching TV with my Dad when I couldn't sleep as a kid.

    Taking them for a drive and not risking taking them out of the car so sleeping in the driveway with a blanket and pillow and the heater on in the car.

    When younger car and stroller always worked. Now if she won't sleep i don't fight it and I let her stay up until she's beyond exhausted and chuck her on the boob lol.
