It’s been no secret that Jasmine isn’t a great sleeper. At 7 months old she has never slept for any sort of duration, currently up every 20/30 minutes each night, struggling to go back to sleep once awake. My record of rocking her is 5 hours. Each time I’d put her down her eyes would ping open and she’d be awake. I’ve been dreading putting her in her own room but with her outgrowing her snuz pod I knew I had to.
MyHummy kindly sent me a ‘snoozy’ for Jasmine to try and one of their new gorgeous matching blankets to make this transition easier. There’s a lots of ‘white noise products on the market, I’ve tried most of them and seen little improvement so I was keen to try MyHummy.
MyHummy makes unique toys which emit white noise, this has been shown to improve babies’ sleep. In case of newborns the likelihood of a baby falling asleep is increased three fold in response to white noise, it’s also soothing for toddler and children of all ages. Not only are they cute, you can attach them to a cot, car seat (to avoid car meltdowns) or a buggy .
Jasmine loves sucking on his arms and rub his soft fabric on her face! Snoozy comes in five lovely colours: pink, blue, green, grey and ecru. MyHummy Snoozy emits 5 types of white noise resembling: a hairdryer, vacuum cleaner, ocean waves, rainfall and amniotic fluid with heartbeat. with snoozy you can also connect to Blue tooth via the app so you can:.
- Use your phone as a remote control for myHummy
- Adjust the volume
- Control the duration of sound
- Switch the Sleep Sensor on and off
- Use Alarm Mode to send notifications to a phone when baby starts to whimper or cry (within Bluetooth range
So I was excited to try it. On the first night I bathed Jasmine as normal and played our ‘bedtime songs’, I gave her a feed and she fell asleep, I then continued to rock her whist I used my phone to turn on the snoozy in her bedroom, I changed the sound and the volume ready to put her down – I love the Bluetooth part so nice to control what she’s hearing without disturbing her. When I put her in her cot, her eyes opened. Then, something strange happened she slowly shut them again – and went to sleep!
This has not happened before, once the eyes are open, I would normally feed her back to sleep and rock her again for another 30 minutes. Instead I went downstairs and something alien happened, for the first time in 7 months, she slept in her cot for over 2 hours I had an evening back. I could do whatever I wished, so what did I do? Watched her on the monitor of course!
When she woke I fed her and soothed her, instead of fighting it she went back in to her cot nicely and went back in to her bed. Although she woke through out the night I was getting far more substantial chunks of sleep. She felt relaxed, she even moved in her sleep getting in to much comfier positions.
Each night I got a little longer downstairs, and the chunks of sleep got longer. I was so impressed especially in this warm weather we have been having. She stopped the panic crying when she woke after a couple of nights, she was soothed by her snoozy and I was so grateful for that. I don’t ever want her to feel scared. Her afternoon naps have actually become too long if that’s possible! I have to turn off the myhummy when I want her to naturally wake, which she does.
Her blanket is equally gorgeous, matching her snoozy it’s soft and very thick. Almost like a baby duvet. I put her on top to lay on which she enjoys and look forward to snuggling under it when the weather gets colder.
Like I say, I’ve tried a lot of white noise products on the market and MyHummy is the best by far. Its a must have for parents and parents to be especially those who want their evenings back like I did and help transition them in to their new rooms.
I definitely recommend the MyHummy toys, If you’d like to have a look at the awesome products then click here. Whether you’re a new parent, a parent to be or looking for a gift for someone.
