Carly Cole used a sleep expert to get her daughter into a routine at bedtime

Footballer Joe Cole and his wife Carly have been gushing about how much they love parenthood. Despite this, WAG Carly has revealed that the sleepless nights were taking their toll, when the couple couldn’t get daughter, Ruby Tatiana, into a regular sleeping pattern. They decided to call in a sleep expert for help.

“I tried and tried but Ruby just wasn’t sleeping. Because we’d moved I had no family around to help. I was averaging three hours’ sleep a night. Ruby wasn’t sleeping at all, even during the day. If I put her in her cot she’d scream and scream,” Carly revealed to Closer magazine.

Ruby now manages to sleep through the night, and Carly says it has changed everything. So much so, that she is planning on adding to their family.

“This summer we will start [trying for a second baby]. Ruby’s my life now. We plan to have around four kids – or maybe three, we’ll wait and see,” said Carly.
