Sweet Sleep For The Holidays
A good night’s sleep is important any time of the year, but with all the excitement and hectic schedules of the holidays, it’s especially important for kiddos (and parents!) to get a full eight hours so that everyone feels happy and healthy through it all. I’m a huge fan of Dream Buddies for this very reason: these stuffed animals are the answer for parents looking to find a little something extra to help their kids fall asleep at night. You might be thinking, “How does this amazing item work, Emily? How do I help my kids to fall asleep more easily?” (Hopefully you’re not asking this in a frazzled manner with a Christmas sugar cookie dough bowl in one hand and a sleep-deprived kiddo in the other!).
What we love about Dream Buddies
Essentially, Dream Buddies are stuffed animals with a little something extra: they project a starry constellation on the wall or ceiling that slowly and naturally eases your children to sleep. These are a fantastic replacement for nightlights, as they soothe kids with their changing colors—green, blue, and amber—and come in three different adorable animals: a lamb, a bunny, and a puppy. My daughter Abby loves to snuggle with her Dream Buddie Bunny every night, watching the constellation shift and change on the ceiling as she falls asleep. With an automatic timer to shut off after forty-five minutes, the Dream Buddies’ cycle ensures that your little ones will have complete darkness during their deep, restorative sleep, as is recommended by pediatricians. They’re appropriate for all ages, and currently retail at $29.99. Each Dream Buddie comes with two AAA batteries so that you and the kiddos can enjoy them right away, and they can be found at local toy, baby, and gift stores across Canada or on Cloub b’s website: www.cloudb.com/canada.
