Our Baby Sleep Favourites

 HAPPY NEW YEAR!  WeeSleep has some super dreamy faves that we felt we just HAD to share so you can start 2016 off with the best of the best. If it helps with positive and comfy sleep shaping, we are all about sharing the WEE-love!  Enjoy!url

  1. Aden + Anais swaddle blankets: Until your baby is somewhere between 3.5 to 5 months of age and/or has mastered the art of rolling, swaddling is recommended to help manage the “startle” reflex so your little one can sleep more soundly. Aden + Anais 100% cotton swaddle blankets come in two sizes for ease of swaddling, and are very lightweight, while also keeping your baby warm and cozy. Plus, they are great multitaskers – use these breathable blankets to cover the car seat, fashion a quick breastfeeding cover, and lay on the floor as a tummy-time blanket!
  1. Sleep sacks: When your baby is ready to transition out of the swaddle, a sleep sack is recommended to keep her cozy and safe (no stray blankets or quilts covering that little face!). WeeSleep’s favourite brands include GRO, Wee Urban, and Aden + Anais. Each offers a wide variety of thicknesses (super light for summer naps, heavier for cozy winter sleeps!), designs (hello, adorable!!) and unique features (such as zipper-covers to avoid scratching your baby) to keep your wee one comfy and dreamy!


  1. Jellycat snuggly buddies: WEE love Jellycat! An age-appropriate snuggly buddy like a super soft Jellycat toy can be a fantastic comfort object for your little one. In 2016, Jellycat’s entire line is finally available for purchase online! There is always something original and quirky yet soft and cuddly to find in this line of toys, so that you can match your little one’s snuggly buddy to his very own adorable personality!


  1. Gro Anywhere Portable Blackout Blinds: Anyone who has travelled with a baby or toddler knows it can be tricky to create a great sleep environment on-the-go (in hotel rooms, in Grandma’s guest room, etc.). The Gro Anywhere Blind is designed to ‘go’ anywhere with you – it adapts to fit any window up to a max size of 135 cm x 200 cm, can be put up in minutes, and attaches directly to the window using suction cups and velcro to ensure a very close fit that really block lights.


  1. Guava Family Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib: This super easy and lightweight travel crib is great for providing your little one with a comfy sleep space when you are away from home. This super-safe travel crib has breathable mesh sides and no flame retardants, PVCs, phthalates, lead, or heavy metals, so you can feel good about your baby getting his Zs in it! It can be set up in 15-seconds, and the carrying case converts to backpack for easy portability!


  1. Conair Sound Therapy Sound Machine – For WeeSleep, this is an oldie but a goodie! If you live on a noisy street, have a loud pet, or a rambunctious toddler who keeps waking your baby, white noise can be a great thing! The Conair Sound Therapy Sound Machine features both white noise and rain sounds – recommended by WeeSleep for the best uninterrupted sleep for your baby! It also has a timer that can be turned OFF, so white noise can play continuously while your baby snoozes. And, it can be operated by battery or DC adapter, for ease of use while travelling, camping, etc.!


  1. 5-minute bedtime books: Reading at bedtime is a fantastic way to enhance your child’s love of books, create bonding time for your family, and introduce consistency in your little one’s bedtime routine. BUT, lengthy stories can also turn bedtime into an hour-long production. Popular 5-minute bedtime books like 5-minute Berenstein Bears Stories, Curious George’s 5-minute stories, and Girl Power 5-minute stories, include great morals, lessons, and opportunities for snuggle time with your kiddo, without taking you into the wee hours of the morning to read!


  1. The Shrunks Toddler or Twin Travel Bed: Whether you are travelling with an older child or a toddler who has recently transitioned out of a crib, the Shrunks Toddler and Twin Travel Beds are a fantastic way to ensure your little one has a cozy, comfortable, familiar place to sleep when you are on the road. The unique design fits standard sized sheets and blankets (crib or twin, depending on the model you choose) that tuck into the inner air mattress. And the inflatable side-rails provide extra security for little ones just transitioning from crib to big-kid bed! This bed is also great for sleepovers!


  1. Gro-clock: Another WeeSleep favourite that will carry us into a dreamy New Year! How do you get your toddler to stop waking at 5am thinking it’s party time? Simple – no getting out of bed until you see the sun! The Gro Company has updated the original version of this popular item to use fun images of stars and the sun to tell your little one when it is time to go back to sleep, and when it is time to get up! The newest version of the clock allows parents to choose whether or not to display the digital clock, so older children can start to learn digital time while also waiting for the arrival of the sun!


  1. Eco Chic Movement baby bathtime products: A bath every day as part of a consistent bedtime routine is a great way to tell your baby what is coming next – his big, long sleep! But, as parents, we want bath products free from all the YUCK! Eco Chic Movement products are 100% chemical free, meaning no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic preservatives, or petroleum products. The “NO” list on all Eco Chic Movement merchandise makes it easy for parents to see exactly with is NOT in their products, as well as what is!
