Help Baby Sleep!

There are a million "sleep experts" out there and as a new mother, I read many of their books. While everyone has their own opinion, I did find that there were common threads among most of them. Start a routine from the beginning, create a comfortable atmosphere, you can't spoil a baby under 3 months old . . .
In my adventure as a mom, I have found some interesting and unique products. Here are a few that help with sleep, for you and baby! (All can be found at )

Sleep Sheep on the Go by Cloud b

We discovered this when our little guy was a few months old, but could definitely have used it sooner. It has four soothing nature sounds (While I think "whale" is questionable as far as being soothing, my husband and son love it.) We even have adult friends who sleep with this product!

Lavender Lab by Cloud b

This lab smells so good, I just can't even begin to describe it. The attached blanket is silky smooth and the lab is super cuddly. There is also a baby lab that smells just as wonderful!

The Happiest Baby on the Block

The Happiest Baby on the Block gives you 5 simple steps that help calm and soothe your baby. One of the main points of the program is using white noise. Babies are so used to it being loud in the womb, Dr. Karp says that simulating that noise is part of how we can activate their "calming reflex." This worked very well for us and the CD was a wonderful tool in helping our little one fall asleep!

oh, we loved the 5 S's from "The Happiest Baby..."- they worked great for our little one. Especially loved Dr. Karp's D.U.D.U. swaddle method!

With newborn twins and a 4 year old I don't get much sleep and can't seem to remember anything. The itzbeen and days ago would be great helpers.
