Sleep Sheep...

Amelia was a little fussy on Sunday. She actually exercised her lungs a little - totally not like her. We were trying anything and everything to make her happy, so I decided to pull out her sleep sheep. She received two of these - one was travel size, so I put it in the corner of her bassinet. I have found that she really likes the sound of running water. Whenever I'm making her a bottle, she gets very still as soon as I turn on the faucet. Well let me tell ya, this thing is our new best friend. It makes all different sounds, one being the sound of water. It will run for up to 45 minutes before stopping. She slept from 10pm-3am and then from 4am-9am! She would get a little restless and I would reach over and push the button again and she would go out...AMAZING!

Can you say precious?

Love to all,

So cool! I've heard of the womb bears, but I've never seen anything that makes other noises too. Sounds awesome!

We LOVE the sleep sheep at our house....I got addicted to hearing that sound with my Baby Boy in his cradle in our room....I missed the sleep sheep when he moved to his crib!
