*Disclosure: I did receive the same giveaway products. These opinions are my own and were in no way influenced by another person.
I have long been a fan of Cloud b products. Their line of plush animals are brilliant for helping to make bedtime a peaceful experience for kids.
Cloud b helps parents establish a calming bedtime routine with a collection of wonderful characters that feature elements of soothing sights and calming sounds for a relaxing night’s sleep. The adorable snuggly plush Frankie the Fox plays the tranquil sounds of Sunny Days, Forest Walk, Brook and Daydreams to help calm and comfort children to sleep anywhere they go. With it’s easy to attach velcro loop, it’s the perfect traveling companion for a calm and restful night for baby and parents!
Where to purchase Frankie the Fox? On Amazon for $29.95 where these plush products also get GREAT reviews!!
Frankie is a darling plush who plays some of the most soothing music and sounds that I have heard. My hubby even said that he thinks that the running brook would put him to sleep, and I think it would!!
Twilight Buddies are colorful, ultra-cuddly plush pals that help ease children’s fear of the dark. Available in a zooful of characters, the buddies project actual star constellations onto bedroom ceilings and walls. Children will love to snuggle with their animal buddies including an alligator, fox, giraffe, hippo and sheep.
Holiday excitement = over stimulated little ones who just can’t sleep.Sleep expert Cloud b and Kim West (The Sleep Lady®) shared with me some timely tips and healthy solutions for tired toddlers and pooped parents. If you struggle with bedtime routines, here are some of her pointers:
Sleep in One Place While You’re Away
- Ideally, plan to sleep in the same space during your stay, as constant change is hard on babies. Having a consistent “sleep space” even if it’s not home is comforting and will help you to keep your routine as close to normal as possible. Choose the home of one set of grandparents/relatives as a “base camp” and arrange to have relatives come there to visit your little one.
Keep Your Flexible Schedule As Close to Normal As Possible
- Knowing that your child may be staying up late and getting additional stimulation (grandparents and presents!), make sure that your child is at least offered naps, especially if you are traveling with a small baby who still needs daytime sleep. Talk to your family and find a quiet, dark place where your baby can nap consistently during your visit, even if it is different than your nighttime sleep arrangements.Prepare for Some Late Nights
- A late night here and there isn’t as problematic as multiple late nights especially if combined with skipped naps. Get the naps in on-the-go in a stroller or a car ride! Put baby to bed in a portable pack-n-play if you’re out beyond baby’s bedtime.
Don’t Forget the Lovey
- If your child sleeps with a lovey, be sure to bring it with you when you travel, so that your child has something familiar in the midst of change. The same goes with a sleep sack from home (if you use one), and even their favorite toys or bedtime story. Keeping as much “normal” as possible can help to encourage sleep continuity. It’s
especially helpful to pack along toys specifically designed to help children sleep.
