This week I’ve been writing all about sleep on my blog. We’ve reviewed some new products, discussed routines and had a wonderfully honest and open guest post.
From the comments and discussions it’s clear that what works for one child doesn’t necessarily work for another. But also that it’s always useful to try new things. So with that in mind
here are the Top Products that helped MY kids sleep, they are the things that have worked for us and that I highly recommend.
I think I genuinely owe my sanity to this fluffy, musical sheep! Thanks to its front right paw (which plays a gently lullaby when pressed), I gained some precious hours of sleep in the early days with my two children as babies.
We started out with the Rabbit version two years ago with my first child and I was genuinely amazed with how it helped my toddler fall asleep. It was like we hypnotised him! We used it so much that I could recite it word for word.
We then bought the Elephant version for our second child and although it’s not worked quite as well for her..yet. We preferred the illustrations.
3. I only came across Summer Infant Slumber Melodies Bear through trialling it for my blog this week. But it’s already made it into my top 5 Sleep products. As I’ve written in my blog post here, the bear has genuinely settled my little one back to sleep with its music. Such a clever bear!
4. Slumbersac Sleeping Bag With Feet 2.5 Tog – Simply Owl – various sizes
We didn’t need this with our first child, but our second is NOT happy in a sleeping bag and wants freedom! These sleeping bags with legs have been great as it’s meant she can move around easier, walk…and climb! But she’s not kicking off loose covers and getting cold at night.
5. Silentnight Anti-Allergy Pillow Protector, Pack of 2 We were recommended these by a nurse at our GP surgery due to allergies and eczema. I honestly thought it wouldn’t make any difference but was willing to try anything to get more sleep. And within a week we were already seeing the benefits, eczema seemed better and as a result he slept better and settled easier. Cannot thank the nurse enough.
