It is said that, when kids sleep, everyone is at peace , but when kids are awake, nobody is asleep!
The simple time tested method to make babies of all ages asleep as per Yoga is here:
Using your ring and middle fingers, gently form circles over the kid’s forehead.
Place the child in your lap if possible,
One must start from near the ear towards the centre of the forehead.
Use gentle pressure, like we employ to use Mouse of the computer.
Rotate in anticlockwise direction to put to sleep.
The best part is that after your kid has gone to sleep, you can use the same on your forehead. If you rotate in clockwise direction, you will feel energized. If you rotate in anticlockwise direction, you may feel mildly asleep.
