Like most, I’m not good without my sleep. And I know that once baby is here, the first few weeks will be tough. Waking up every few hours is guaranteed but hey, that’s the one of the joy’s of having a new born and I wouldn’t expect any different.
I was blown away by this cool little toy though. Ewan The Dream Sheep not only looks adorable, but it’s cool little features like playing womb and heartbeat sounds which mimics what they heard from the womb is said to help sooth your little one and help them settle.
It also has three other noises including classical music and white noise and it gently lights up a pinky colour, which according to research has been to mimic certain aspects of the womb and be extremely comforting.
I’ve only heard good things about Ewan and CAN’T wait to give him to my baby girl. He is so soft and most impressively the heartbeat and womb sounds that he plays are actual recordings, not computer generated, which should help her with the transition from womb to big wide world. These sounds have also been trialled on different babies and toddlers to find the most effective ones to aid sleep.
Ewan will without doubt be in my hospital bag – the sooner I introduce her to him the better. I can’t wait!
