2014 National Sleep Awareness Week Giveaway – 10 Awesome Prizes!

sleepawareness_fb2Happy National Sleep Awareness Week, readers! Bet you didn’t even know this was a special week, did you? Well, it is – at least, it is for those of us who tend to be preoccupied with sleep! Thanks to the National Sleep Foundation, we have a week each year that promotes and highlights our favorite topic – sleep! Coinciding with the start of Daylight Savings Time, this week is designed to help promote the benefits and necessity of healthy sleep habits.

Here at The Baby Sleep Site, we certainly want to do our part to help promote sleep awareness. (It’s kind of our job, after all!) So, in the spirit of National Sleep Awareness Week, we’re offering up 3 tips designed to help you maximize your baby or toddler’s sleep. Check them out below:

  1. Amount of Sleep – The amount of sleep your baby or toddler needs varies by age. Newborns and young babies will obviously need more sleep than an older baby or toddler. For more information about how much sleep your baby or toddler needs by age, please see this article.
  2. Schedule and Routine – A good schedule and routine are essential to helping your baby or toddler get the sleep they need. It also creates a sense of predictability and helps set their body clock, which will ultimately keep your baby or toddler from getting overtired and being able to go to sleep when it’s time. Please visit our Schedules page for a full list of our sample baby and toddler sleep schedules by age.
  3. How to Get Your Baby on a Schedule – Having a good idea of what kind of schedule your baby or toddler should be on is good information to have, but the next step is to then help your baby or toddler to adapt to that schedule. We suggest you read this post for some additional information on how to put your baby on a nap/sleep schedule.

In honor of this sleep-themed week, we are so pleased to host a Sleep Awareness Week Giveaway for you, our dear readers! And this year, in addition to our Grand Prize, we have a fantastic list of other sleep-related prizes to help your baby or toddler get the sleep they need (and you too!) Keep reading for more details about the prizes and how to enter!

Entries to the giveaway will be accepted today through 11:59 pm EST, March 9, 2014. Please note that some prizes are only available to US entrants. Prizes will indicate whether they are only available to US winners or available internationally.

National Sleep Awareness Week and a Giveaway!

SleepAwarenessGiveaway

Each year in the United States, the first week of March is National Sleep Awareness Week. This week is meant to coincide with Spring Daylight Saving Times as well as help promote the benefits and necessity of healthy sleep habits.

This year, Daylight Saving Time for the US and Canada will be on Sunday, March 10th. For those of you in Europe, DST will happen on March 31. Many of our friends in the Southern Hemisphere will have a fall back DST in April. Whenever DST happens for you, most of you already know how this can create havoc with your baby or toddler’s sleep schedule for a few days or weeks. Falling back in time will tend to create more problems than springing forward. If you’re worried about how the time change will affect your little on what you can do about it, be sure to check out this week’s article on Tuesday, when we will offer some tips for handling Daylight Saving Time with your baby’s schedule.

Here at The Baby Sleep Site, we certainly want to do our part to help promote sleep awareness! Below are some tips and facts that we hope you find helpful.

1. Amount of Sleep – The amount of sleep your baby or toddler needs varies by age. Newborns and young babies will obviously need more sleep than an older baby or toddler. For more information about how much sleep your baby or toddler needs by age, please see this article.

2. Schedule and Routine – A good schedule and routine are essential to helping your baby or toddler get the sleep they need. It also creates a sense of predictability and helps set their body clock which will ultimately keep your baby or toddler from getting overtired and being able to go to sleep when it’s time. Please visit our Schedules page for a full list of our sample baby and toddler sleep schedules by age.

3. How to Get Your Baby on a Schedule – Having a good idea of what kind of schedule your baby or toddler should be on is good information to have, but the next step is to then help your baby or toddler to adapt to that schedule. We suggest you read this post for some additional information on how to put your baby on a nap/sleep schedule.

As we have in previous years, we are also hosting a Sleep Awareness Week Giveaway! And this year, in addition to our Grand Prize, we have a fantastic list of other sleep related prizes to help your baby or toddler get the sleep they need (and you too!) Keep reading for more details about the prizes and how to enter!

Giveaway

For this giveaway, one winner will be selected to receive a $150 gift card to Amazon.

Entries to the giveaway will be accepted today through 11:59 pm, March 10, 2013. Please note that some prizes are only available to US entrants.

Parents with wound-up kids start with the first track, while parents with sleepier kids would start on track #5.

Musically the album is filled with warm, intimate piano, layers of vocal harmonies, and an abundance of tangible love energy. Songs incorporate music that has touched Deborah. You can hear the influences of Brain Eno (“Bukie”), Enya (“Good Night My Love”), The Beatles (“Chloe in the Clouds”), and Musical Theater (“Brush Brush”) along with Mozart, Bach and Chopin (“Little Star”, “Oceans of Love (Dream)” and “The Cricket Alphabet”).

Read what one parent had to say about the Dohm-NSF Sound Conditioner:

“My little Jane is 23 months old. The Dohm for baby is an essential part of our family’s lives. It’s the best sleep conditioner out there. Actually, my husband says those words are not strong enough. Having a baby means not getting much rest. Duh. But our Dohm for baby soothes Jane to peaceful sleep. Which soothes the rest of our house. I can’t describe how good that felt the first time it happened. I almost had to get used to relaxing again! We got some of our stressed-out-new-parents life back again. Dohm says “serious sleep”on the box. They sure got that right. Now if you’ll excuse me, Jane is snoozing and I am going to get some of that serious sleep myself. I suggest you do the same.” – Emily, Richmond, VA

One winner will receive a Dohm-NSF Sound Conditioner. Read more about the Dohm Sound Conditioner on the Marpac website.

You can read more about Sound Sleep on their website.

Five winners will receive the full premium version of the Sound Sleep app. (Non iPhone winners will receive a gift card to Google Play)

Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project CD and Book

Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project is both a timeless benefit effort and a uniquely compelling multimedia experience. The ambitious project–which incorporates a two-CD, 26-song set, a lavishly-illustrated hardcover book of 17 songs from the album, a corresponding e-book encompassing the entire collection, and a documentary film–gathers many of contemporary musical theatre’s greatest composers and vocalists, as well as illustrators, all of whom have donated their talent to deliver an emotionally affecting set of new lullabies, some written specifically for Over the Moon.

This collection puts a fresh spin on the classic lullaby form, creating a warmly expressive song cycle that will touch listeners of all ages, while raising funds for respected breast cancer charities The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Young Survival Coalition. The book, with its foreword by Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton, includes a 17-song CD with lyrics illustrated by some of America’s most esteemed theatrical designers and children’s book illustrators. The e-book includes music and illustrations for all 26 songs (iBooks and Nook versions only).

Over the Moon: The Broadway Lullaby Project’s roster of world-class vocalists, composers, and lyricists features some of Broadway’s most respected and popular performers and friends, including Michael Cerveris, Raul Esparza, Sutton Foster, Nona Hendryx, Rupert Holmes, Brian d’Arcy James, Nikki M. James, Tony Kushner, Rebecca Luker, 2012 Lead Actress in a Musical Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald, Donna Murphy, Kelli O’Hara, Anika Noni Rose, Stephen Sondheim, Will Swenson, and Vanessa Williams.
