The lights are low, baby is bathed, warm and fed – and now it’s time to drift off to sleep. Still, persistent sleep problems that make it hard for your baby (and you!) to get the rest you both need could be a sign of a bigger issue. Getting your child to fall asleep (and stay asleep) is not a task for the faint of heart. For the most part, repetition, patience, and maybe a little praying are a part of every parent's repertoire. Don't worry, no one will blame you for using every handy tool at your disposal — like your Smartphone — to pull it off. These are five apps to help get baby to sleep.

1. Storybook App

Storybook App is improving the physical and emotional health of thousands of children worldwide. Why is this the best option? Most small children experience physical or emotional problems. Storybook combines the benefits of infant massage with story-telling to create a special moment between parent and child that not only improves health conditions, but also greatly improves their relationship.

Storybook App comes with over 50 (and counting) beautiful and simple massage series and bedtime stories for children 0-12 years old. Play and listen to bedtime stories together as you massage your child into a restful state of relaxation.

Reduce stress, lower cortisol levels, and contribute to the neurological and muscular development of your baby. Massages can help with health, digestion, sleep and stress while strengthening your bond.

2. Lullaby for Babies

Sometimes all a baby needs for a perfect night's sleep is a little music. The prerecorded lullabies of this app, which include simple melodies and lullaby classics such as "Hush, Little Baby" will soothe your little one to sleep. You can even set a timer to keep the songs playing for as long as you like. (Free; Android).

3. Sleeptot – Baby White Noise

The Sleeptot app works on the premise that babies aren’t used to silence, so it creates the sounds a little one needs to help fall asleep. It has more than 30 white noise sounds (like hairdryer, car ride and fan) and lullabies.

4. Sound Sleeper: White Noise

Sound Sleeper: White Noise plays white noise sounds like the vacuum cleaner, rain and womb sound as well as lullabies. It self-activates at baby’s first cry and you can even record your own sounds.For more information search for in Android: Sound Sleeper

5. Sleep Hero

The app is very unique and fast in terms of features. It has an array of pre-recorded sounds, songs, and nursery rhymes and you can even upload your baby’s favorite nursery rhymes, songs, and stories. One of the unique features of this app is that when your baby starts crying, the sleep app quickly starts playing your baby’s favorite selections of nursery rhymes, songs, and stories. The app has only one downside which is that if the baby starts getting bored listening to the same tracks over and over again, then you have to record a follow-up album which is not as good as the original ones.For more information search for in Apple: Sleep
