So you feel like you haven't had some shut-eye in about a century and you've gotten to the point where all the walking, rocking, jiggling, pacing and patting is turning you into a zombie. We see you there doing the hard yards - many of you solo, and many of you trying to let your partner get some rest for work tomorrow.

Your sleep is vital so we've made a list of sleep-aiding baby products in the hope that one or two of them might be your sleep saviour.

• Pramrolla simulates a walk in the park so you can pop baby in the pram and get some things done hands-free. It's $149.95 from Pramrolla.

• Stuffy noses are a big source of sleep problems, so a vaporiser is a nursery must-have. Check out the cute range at The Sleep Store.
