Gugu Guru's Top 5 Products to Help Baby Sleep Better
Sleep can be so hard to come by as a new parent, and even when the baby does sleep, and you get your small window to lie down, it seems as though you’re almost too worried or nervous to really get the sleep you need. We have 5 essential sleep products that we encourage every new mom to add to her baby registry - and we know these will help new mom sleep with ease.Baby Shusher: This innovative baby sleep device is one of the only products on the market that uses a recorded human voice to help with baby sleep training. This sleeping device for babies features rhythmic ‘shushes’ recorded that can play up to 30 minutes at a time. This helps to interrupt your baby’s crying session and engages their relaxation and calming reflex. The shushing noise reminds babies, especially preemies and newborns, of being in the womb, which helps them calm down and sleep easier. Humidifier: Humidifiers are especially important for newborns because they are Obligate Nasal Breathers, breathing only through their tiny noses for their first 4 – 6 months. Any congestion can make breathing, feeding, and sleeping incredibly difficult for your little one. We’re fans of Crane Humidifiers, as they are eco-friendly, safe for the nursery, and blend in easily with any nursery decor. Ollie Swaddle: new babies sleep so much better when swaddled, as it helps them feel like they’re back in the womb. The Ollie Swaddle is one of our favorites, as it was created with the guidance of Ollie’s pediatric neuro-developmental psychologist, both the mental and physical aspects of the swaddle were addressed in creation and development of the swaddle. Because of the gentle way the swaddle wraps baby, yet with a comforting pressure, it eases the transition for baby from womb to real world. Because of its snug comfort, The Ollie Swaddle will help decrease irritability and fussiness and increase the ability for baby to self soothe and calm themselves down to fall back asleep. QuickZip Sheets: We’ve been telling moms to put QuickZip sheets on their registries for years! These innovative sheets make changing crib sheets a breeze - simply zip the sheet on and off - plus, it is super safe for baby, since the sheet cannot come off the mattress. Baby Movement Monitor: If you’re looking for peace of mind, a baby movement monitor is a must-have. There a few choices on the market to look at, but you’re going to want something which sounds an alarm if baby stops breathing or moving around after a certain period of time. Some of the monitors go on the baby’s physical body, and some of them go under the crib sheet; either way, it’s sure to help a new mom sleep a little easier.
