As a parent all that we hope for is a decent nights sleep. I remember spending most of Little’s early days googling how to get my baby to sleep through the night! We’ve been pretty lucky when it comes to sleep and I’m convinced it’s down to our choice in products.
Snuzpod2 Bedside Crib
So this has been by far been my best investment. Before I was even pregnant with Baby I saw so many people talking about them and I honestly wondered what the hype was about. Surely your baby doesn’t care where they sleep? Maybe I was just blessed with a good sleeper but I honestly wish I had a Snuzpod for Little. At 7 months Baby has only just moved out of her Snuz & I’m honestly heartbroken and haven’t been able to take it down yet!
Another item that I thought was just a gimmick but we borrowed one from my friend and oh my goodness.. Why did I not know about this the first time around? Little loved to be warm and snug so this meant sleeping on me most of the time. Baby slept in the sleepyhead from a few weeks old and she never once spent a night in our bed.
Cloud B Sleep Sheep*
The Cloud B Sleep Sheep has been a massive part of our bedtime routine from quite a young age. It plays four calming sounds and four melodies. We play the same melody every time Baby is put down for a sleep and have it set to automatically switch off after 45 minutes. The velcro strap makes it easy to attach it to the outside of most cots meaning its always close by.
Neither of my girls have liked having blankets on them and tend to just kick them straight off. Using a grobag meant they felt secure and I knew they were always warm enough. The Gro Company also work closely with The Lullaby Trust to promote safer sleeping.
Mam Night Soother 0+
Not all babies have dummies but if they do this is an absolute must. The Mam Night Soother has a glow in the dark feature that saved me fumbling about in the dark searching for that spat out dummy!
Both of my girls have never taken to any comforters other than their muslins. Finding a comforter that they love can have a massive impact on their sleep.
