Mom’s Amazing Trick To Get Her Toddler Son To Sleep Backfires

Do you think it’s right to get toddler a doll’s head?

A mother-of-one attempt to getting her son to sleep by playing with a doll’s head instead of hers has backfired. The adorable toddler is now obsessed with the mannequin head and now takes it almost everywhere.

The mom, Ilarni Clark from Sunderland had always allowed her 14-month old son, Harry plays with her locks to get to sleep. But when Harry’s pulling of her hair started giving headaches, she seeks an alternative.

Discussing with friends online, the 22-year-old mom was contacted by a hairdresser who spared her doll’s head with hair of the same length and color like that of Illarni.

Harry has become so attached to the head that he insists on eating lunch and napping with the doll head

While the plan worked as envisaged, Harry has, however, become so attached to the head that he insists on eating lunch and napping with the doll head.

‘I declined to take the doll’s head with me while going out with Harry and surprisingly, he had a meltdown and screamed

Ilarni couldn’t leave Harry with his dad because he doesn’t have any hair to play with

Illarni, who’s a reception manager also revealed the doll head has left her terrified on several occasions as she believes someone else was in the room with them. She confessed she had accidentally kissed the doll head goodnight, mistaking it for her partner Callum Mackaey, 21, and Son –Harry.

Harry refuses to sleep unless he has hair to play with. So Ilarni sourced this doll as a replacement of her

‘On our bed, there’s me, Callum, Harry, and the doll’s head. Honestly, It has given me countless fright in the middle of the night. And for the first couple of nights, I screamed, ‘Callum, there’s someone in the room!’ we’ve both screamed that way though.’

‘Harry carries it around everywhere we go and wouldn’t eat breakfast or his meals unless the doll’s head is with him. We have gone to town on Monday and I said ‘Come on, we’ll go in the car and he was halfway through the door with it. I declined to take the doll’s head with me and surprisingly, he had a meltdown and screamed. I had to distract harry with something entirely different’ Illarni explained.

Ilarni said she’s tried everything to get her son to sleep on his own, but with the doll’s head he sleeps all by himself

She added: ‘A night was a nightmare for me. I took the doll head off him. I don’t allow him to sleep with it while I am asleep in case the hair goes around his neck. Harry woke up and noticed, then screamed out loud for almost three hours.’
