Parents will do almost anything to get their babies to bed – and now there’s an app to help them.

Devised by scientists to help babies fall and stay asleep, the ‘Sleep Genius’ app employs the same technology used to help NASA astronauts sleep in space. The app, which contains an alarm feature and a nap mode, plays sounds and music which the company claims help promote relaxation.

The ‘Sleep Genius Baby’ app costs $1.99 – but there’s a free version available for adults as well.
