We are blessed with a brand new baby in our house and we are absolutely besotted with him, but like many expectant parents I'm sure, before his arrival into the world, we were worried about how we would cope with the night feeds and lack of sleep again.
You see, our eldest son has always been a great sleeper and still is to this day. From just six weeks of age he has slept through the night and he has blessed us with a full nights sleep ever since - something we are incredibly grateful for. I worried that perhaps the new baby wouldn't sleep well, that he wouldn't be able to settle and that I'd then be like a zombie during the day, unable to give my very active little toddler the attention he deserves also, but I need not have worried, our little Beau is a fantastic sleeper and something I think we has contributed to his fab sleep routine is Whisbear - an amazing bear whose main purpose in life is to help babies sleep better.
We received our Whisbear before Beau was born and I knew that I wanted to begin using the bear with him from the very start. Whisbear is a grey cuddly bear, featuring four colourful and sensory arms that can attach to cots and prams due to the magnets in his paws. He also has crinkly sounding ears and a protruding nose which Beau just loves to try and latch on to. Whisbear comes with a white noise sensor 'heart', which pops into his back - this is then secured with velcro, which makes a calming white noise sound for forty minutes to help soothe baby to sleep. The sensor is activated simply by pressing Whisbear's back and I'm happy to report that the noise really does help to soothe Beau and helps him to drift off to a peaceful sleep.
What I love about Whisbear is the fact that it also has a CRYsensor, so if the white noise has stopped and baby begins to unsettle the white noise comes on again for another twenty minutes. I think this is a great feature as it comforts baby, letting them know that they're not alone and this feature has helped to get Beau back to sleep again - especially when his big brother is being a bit too loud around the house! The Whisbear is easily turned off by pushing it's back again - I do this once Beau has gone to sleep as it runs on batteries.
Beau loves to sleep next to his Whisbear, he always cuddles his head up towards it and although he's too young at the moment to really enjoy the sensory arms it has, I can imagine that he'll love these too. Whisbear has been a great part of Beau's sleep routine and I'm delighted to say that he now sleeps through the night at only four weeks of age.
Whisbear is £39.90 and really is worth every penny. You can purchase Whisbear and browse other products on offer on the Whisbear website.
