The Rustic Mother – Sleep Tight with Whisbear!

“Sleep, sleep, sleep…… something we all take for granted in our youth (fighting bedtimes and secretly staying up late), we neglect in out twenties (often not reaching for our pillows until the early hours) and something we long for as soon as we have children!” Lindsay from The Rustic Mother blog is sharing with us why she recommends Whisbear to any parents and parents to be and how it helped her family get some more snooze!

“For those of you that don’t know Whisbear is a baby sleep aid and sensory toy which can be used from birth to help settle and soothe your baby. You may have heard people mutter about how much babies like the sound of the hoover or hair dryer and that that level of consistent sound settled their baby to sleep. I heard many stories of desperate parents leaving hair dryers going to keep babies sleeping and repeatedly hoovering to keep their little one settled. In the case of my boys this works, these sort of sounds really have helped settle my tribe, but hoovering at three in the morning and leaving the hair dryer going all night aren’t really practical solutions. Welcome Whisbear, this genius little bear emits pink noise (slightly more delicate than white noise) to remind the baby of the sounds it knows from fetal life.

The Whisbear can be turned on by simply pressing its central button hidden in the head. From this point it emits forty minutes of pink noise to help sooth baby and then slowly fades out, entering a standby mode. Then here comes the genius part, when it detects the baby crying or the waking child’s nervous movements, it reacts with a further  twenty minutes of soothing hushing noises before switching back to standby mode!

Well we’ve been testing the Whisbear for a while now and I can happily say it really works! The pink noise has been perfect for settling Jude and the cry sensor has been magic in helping him learning to resettle when he wakes while napping in the day or sleeping in the night. Jude has been quick in learning to sleep through the night and the pink noise emited by the Whisbear has helped in him making these steps. When we’re not using it as a sleeping aim Jude has loved playing with it., especially the rustling paws! We’ve taken it away with us and even taught the grandparents how to use it for all those sleepovers!

A great design and so simple to get to grips with, it’s certainly easy to recommend to any parents and parents to be! I hope you’ve found this useful in understanding how the Whisbear works and its given you a few ideas about settling baby!”
