    As the car stops.

    I usually try & find the cause of wake ups for the girls.
    With DS its usually overtiredness so i sit in the car in his room and rock and pat

    During the day - if she won't settle in the cot, I get her up for a little quiet play then pop her back again at the first whinge.
    At night - take her out of her cot still in her sleeping bag, wrap a blanket around her and rock and cuddle in the chair until she is calm and sleepy then pop her back in the cot.
    Sadly my DD is not a great sleeper in the pram or car so can't really rely on them!
    But if she was having trouble sleeping I would think about the cause - awake time too long/short, sick, teething etc.

    This when they're young. I'd leave extension cord laying across the floor just for the bumps. The downlights would also make them close their eyes and turn their head to the side.

    Now DS is older, if he's fed, clean etc but just not resettling then I just get him up, turn a light on and let him play. Usually 15-20 min later I see him rub his eyes so cuddle, pop him back in his cot and he falls asleep again with no fuss.

    For my 3yo, figure out the problem and back to bed.
    For my 18mth old, a dose of Panadol as he must not be well.
