Baby Sleep Aids

| August 24, 2012

A good night’s sleep is essential for the health of the whole family. You need a restful sleep to regenerate your mind and body. And a peaceful night’s sleep is crucial for the development of your baby.

Thankfully there are some incredible baby sleep aids that really work.

Top 3 Baby Sleep Aids

It has been found that babies will go to sleep more easily to the soothing sounds they heard when in utero. The comforting noises heard daily from their mother’s womb and her heartbeat are reassuring to a newborn.

Ewan the Dream Sheep is one of the most effective baby sleep aids.

Ewan the Dream Sheep replicates the soothing sounds of a pregnant mother’s womb and heartbeat. The sounds have been combined with household, musical and natural sounds at low bass frequencies of 125hz to produce pink noise which is the type of noise babies predominantly hear when in the womb.

Research has shown that babies are comforted by certain aspects of the womb. So a pink ambient glow is the natural choice for Ewan the Dream Sheep’s tummy.

Stylish Maternity Clothes

Being pregnant naturally brings with it a variety of ups and downs. There are increasingly more hormones circulating your body and your mind is probably on nothing else but the thought of your baby and being a new Mummy.

Your belly will be growing by the day and as your pregnancy progresses you’ll find it more difficult to fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes.

During my pregnancy there came a point when it was impossible to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, but I didn’t want to lose my style just because I had a beautiful and blooming baby bump!

We Have A Water Baby

| June 23, 2012

We went swimming for the first time today with Imogen… and she absolutely loved it!

I know a lot of parents who take their babies swimming from a very early age.

This is something I looked into, especially with the very popular Water Babies Classes.

I almost signed up for the classes, but with a young baby you just never know what’s going to be going on or how they’re going to be feeling on the day. Signing up to a term of 10 weeks with a set day and a set time each week to go swimming seemed a little too regimented for us.

So having decided to leave the big swimming pool experience until Imogen was older, we now know it was the best decision we made for our baby.

Imogen’s always loved bath time and has had plenty of time to get used to water, splashing about and having her hair wet.

She had such a happy and confident time kicking around and splashing in the pool with Mummy and Daddy.

It was no surprise that after 30 minutes she began to yawn and we decided it was time to call it a day!

There are plenty of pools in London for babies and children, many of these pools are heated. You can find out more about swimming pools for babies and children at Kids Fun London.
