I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom It Forward Blogger Network for Marpac. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
When Mister and Sister were babies, I learned that white noise is a secret weapon for serious sleep! Little Miss is no different, white noise really helps her sleep. We were using the white noise CD that Hubs had burned (years ago), but the breaks in the noise was enough to wake ME up, because I could hear it through the baby monitor. When I received the opportunity to review the Marpac Dohmie Serious Sleep Baby Bundle, which includes a white noise machine that creates a seamless and continuous sound of rushing air, using electromechanical technology, I had to say yes!
It couldn’t have come at a better time. November and December are busy for us. We travel for Thanksgiving, have two birthdays (Mister’s and Hubs) plus Christmas. Traveling alone is enough to interrupt the baby’s sleep cycle. Add the seasonal stress to the mix, and oh my!
This year, we took the Dohm WITH us when we traveled for Thanksgiving. It is lightweight, easy-to-use, and can travel with you where you go. All you need is a functioning outlet to use it. Because the kids room in with us when traveling, we had it in our room. I loved that it has adjustable tone and volume controls, because I was able to change the settings it to make us all comfortable when rooming together. We all slept well, which is remarkable because we all generally have trouble sleeping anywhere but home.
While at home, we keep the Dohm under the corner of Little Miss’ crib. This is the effect is has on her…
Now that’s serious sleep! Isn’t she beautiful?
If Little Miss every outgrows her need for the Dohm, it will take up residence in our bedroom. In the meantime, I keep the baby monitor set so that I can hear it, too.
The Marpac Dohmie Serious Sleep Baby Bundle retails for $59.99 at Toys ‘R Us and includes the Dohm sound conditioner, a “Buddy the Bee Finds His Z’s” storybook, and a Sleep 101 publication from the NSF.
