I was so spoiled with my first born when he was an infant. I remember bringing him home and actually needing to wake him up to nurse him. I never realized how lucky I was until I had Isabella years later. This girl was not a sleeper, at all. My husband and I spent many nights taking turns bouncing her in our arms at 2 am trying to get her to stop crying and sleep. Looking back now, I have no idea how I functioned on so little sleep.
When Isabella was about two weeks old we were introduced to the Cloud b Gentle Giraffe. This plush giraffe would soothe her to sleep with its white noise feature and help keep her down for longer periods of time. Fast forward 2 1/2 years later and we still use the Gentle Giraffe for naps and bedtime to help drown outside noises! We also have one for Giovanni’s room – this time from day one. It is an absolute necessity for all naps and especially at bedtime. I always recommend it to new parents to be!
I don’t know why it took me so long to look into Cloud b further to see what else they might have to offer in regards to sleep time, but I’m so happy I finally did!
Isabella’s newest phase lately is the “I’m scared” phase. She literally says that about everything so as you can imagine, putting her to bed in a dark room has not been the easiest thing to do – even with me right next to her with her Gentle Giraffe’s white noise going strong. We eventually started using a nightlight, which has helped, but unfortunately there is no timer on it and as a result it stays on all night which is not recommended by pediatricians.
