When it comes to white noise sleep aids, there are two main products that first come to mind. MyHummy and Ewan the Dream Sheep. The next question is which one should you buy? I'm going to break this into a few different categories and then pick which one is the winner. At the end of [...]
I really don’t think you know exactly how you’re going to parent until you’re there. Prior to having Isabelle, I probably didn't give much thought to the question "what is attachment parenting?" We, like most parents, had everything in place ready for the baby. We had the cot, the pram, the moses basket, and we even had [...]
It wasn't too long ago that I was moaning at my wife for buying a MyHummy Sleepy Head when we had a few rough nights of Isabelle waking and refusing to settle. I said it in that review, and I'll repeat it here. I thought "It was something that was simply being sold to overly panicked parents who wanted a quick fix for an easy night."
Usually I have a nice little YouTube video to go along with my weekly blog. But this week I opted to do one based off one of my other blog posts, so you can watch me talk about helping Rachel to breastfeed by heading here (that link is just my YouTube channel as I haven't finished the upload yet, so just subscribe and wait for it to be done, or keep reading), or read about it here.
I'll admit, when Rachel first told me she spent £40 on something that simply makes some white noise, it's safe to say I was pretty sceptical. In my opinion, it was something that was simply being sold to overly panicked parents who wanted a quick fix for an easy night. It was something that I felt took a little bit of the parenting away. Rather than actually comforting your baby, you can just use this. And also, I have a Spotify account, ergo I have plenty of white noise albums for babies. Why spend £40 on something that I already have on my phone. But, just like Jerry Orbach says in Dirty Dancing, when I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong. And thus far, it's actually working.
