I receive items quite often for review purposes which is lovely but it’s not often I think to review a product which I’ve bought myself or that we have received as a gift but sometimes they can be my very favourite products so I’ve decided to also start reviewing the things I truly love which make our lives as parents easier ..starting with Ewan.
Chloe received Ewan the dream sheep as a Christmas gift from her aunty and uncle and well it really has been a ‘dream’ sheep. From the day we started using it the soft cuddly toy has helped to both settle C to sleep and also to calm her when she’s upset. If she starts to wake in the night we push a button on Ewan’s leg to play the womb/heartbeat sounds and within a minute of so she’s back in the land of nod. During the day when she gets irritable we play the harp songs and it seems to help settle her.
At £29.99 in most shops it’s not cheap for a cuddly toy but then its so much more than a toy and I would say its worth every penny. An absolute wonderful present for both a baby and their tired parents, I think it’s a product I will recommend to all of my pregnant friends and followers.
You can buy Ewan in lots of places but here is a link to it for sale in Kiddicare mainly as I’m a big fan of the Kiddicare shops.
Here is what Kiddicare say about Ewan:
Ewan’s actual heartbeat/womb sound combinations mimic the noise babies hear in the womb and are proven to be effective at settling and calming your baby. Combined with the comforting pink glow, Ewan helps ease the transition from womb to world.
Ewan the Dream Sheep is soft and cuddly and can be used as a hand held toy or can be attached to the Cot side. He has gentle womb, rain or musical sounds and has a gentle pink glowing light in his chest.
*Suitable from Newborn
*If Ewan is used from birth baby will recognize the sounds and associate calmness and sleep when played
*Comforting pink glow
*20 minute timer
*Sponge clean only
*Hangs from Cot with Velcro tail
*Helps to soothe restless babies
*Batteries not included
There is only one fault I can find with this product and I thought long and hard about it and that is that it uses up a LOT of batteries. It takes 3 AAA batteries and we change them about every 4/5 days – but it still works out less than £1 a week which I am more than willing pay for the peace 😉 Also if we used more expensive batteries they would probably last longer but we bought a big pack cheaply a while back so working our way through them first.
Coming up shortly are reviews for the Boba wrap, Bednest and Gro Swaddle.
