Sleep Buddy System

Sleep Buddy is a complete sleep system to help parents teach toddlers when to stay in bed. This product was created by a former teacher and mother of 5. What makes it special is that it has three components (it’s not just a light!) It comes with a programmable sleep light that can be used at nighttime as well as naptime. When the soft, blue glow is on the child stays in bed. When it turns off, it’s ok to get up. It also has a dimming function so that it can be as bright or as dim as the child prefers. The system also includes a sweet children’s book, A Bedtime Surprise, to introduce and explain the concept to children. A colorful reward chart with stickers makes up the third component of the system to help motivate your child and track successful sleep periods. We were sent a complimentary Sleep Buddy System and must say we were quite impressed with it! It comes with good instructions and would work well with helping toddlers to go to sleep and stay asleep. You can find out more on the Sleep Buddy website. One winner will receive the Sleep Buddy System.

Dohm-NSF Sound Conditioner

We have previously mentioned the Dohm Sound Conditioner as a must-have sleep product and it has been named the “Official Sound Conditioner of the National Sleep Foundation.” A sound conditioner can help block out noises that might keep baby awake and can offer a soothing background noise to help lull your baby or toddler to sleep. 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.

Sound Sleeper App

Sound Sleeper is a white noise app for newborns and infants. It includes a variety of calming sounds as well as the unique “Listen” mode, which “listens” for your baby and starts playing the sound you’ve chosen, automatically – the instant he begins to cry. This simple and easy-to-use – and very effective – app was first created by a young couple for their own baby, and has now become one of the most popular baby white noise apps available. The Sound Sleeper App is available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

You can download the free version, Sound Sleeper Free, which lets you play all of the app’s calming sounds as well as test-drive the “listen” mode. The full version of Sound Sleeper ”listens” for your baby, shushes her to sleep if she wakes up and starts crying…and resets itself to be ready to calm and comfort your little one if she wakes up again, as many times as she needs. 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)

Deadline to enter is Thursday, December 13, 2012, 8:59 p.m. EST.

One of these nights it WILL be the last time we all wake up in the middle of the night and I won’t know it at the time. There will come a day that I would do anything to rewind the clock and have a sweet little baby again, so I’m enjoying every 3am snuggle as much as I can.

  22. DeeDee says
