Review: Cloud B Gentle Giraffe

Baby E is a light sleeper. I have heard people say that you should always make noise while baby sleeps, because they will eventually get used to it. Well, you know what? They obviously never had to deal with feeling like they should kill themselves for waking up a tired baby for a month in a row! I really did try my best to get him used to noise. But it never worked. He's a baby that likes things quiet. Seriously quiet. "I would hear crickets chirping in the background if there were any" kind of quiet.

From the start, Baby E has had very strong instincts for keeping me near him. Even in his sleep. As a newborn, he would sleep most soundly if I was sleeping with him. The only ways I could get him to sleep by himself was by putting him into his swing with music on constantly, and with the swing set on a low setting so that he was in motion. The music would only last 20 minutes, and if I wasn't there to start it again, he'd stir, and then wake up within a few minutes. Needless to say, it's hard to get much done in a 20-minute time frame.

Baby E outgrew his swing (it's pathetic to see a swing struggle to sway from side to side on its highest setting with a 16 lb. baby in it, only to end up barely moving at all) before he outgrew his need for music during his sleep. I found that if music was playing, I could get away with making some noise. But if he was sleeping with everything dead silent, it had to stay that way to keep him asleep. More often than not, since I didn't have another solution, I would turn just the music of his Fisher Price swing on, and play it while he slept in bed. That's right---I still had this giant space hog of a swing and I was using only the music function. A bit silly, I know.

I received the Cloud B Gentle Giraffe for review. First lets talk about the features. There are several friends to the Gentle Giraffe so that you can find the product that you and baby like best---Marvin the Monkey, and the very well known Sleep Sheep. Each of these products comes with a battery-operated sound machine, that you insert into the back of the stuffed animal. There is a velco strap to keep the sound maker in place. The generously sized velcro strap on the back of the Gentle Giraffe allows you to fasten him to your little one's crib, or anywhere else you need it.

The Gentle Giraffe has four different sounds, has a volume adjuster, and a timer. The timer can be switched to either 20 minutes, or 40 minutes. The sound options are, "Sleep," "Relax," Calm," and "Play."

For Baby E, the Gentle Giraffe has become one of our daily use items. When he was younger, he needed the 40-minute setting to fall into a deep sleep, and then he wouldn't stir from his nap. But now he's gotten to a point where the 20-minute timer is just perfect. I play him the "Sleep" song, and sleep he does! There are times during the day where he is cranky because he is fighting sleep, and I will turn on the sleep sheep to "Calm" or "Relax" (which, despite the fact that they are synonyms do play different songs, by the way), and most days that will start to put him to sleep.

  1. Oh I just LOVE Cloud B! Their products ROCK!

  2. Oh I have never heard of Cloud B. I must live under a rock, this is super adorable. Thanks for the review.

  3. My pal won interview in the search engines. He attempted many occasions before; his experience did not change just like his background skills. The only real factor that helped him to become selected for that tet-a-tet interview was new covering letter. And that he wasn't the one that authored it! 123 help me essays made it happen for him! So, if you wish to anyone to notice that you're a hero, you need to think of a good story first)

  4. We do hope you won. Personally I'm not the fan of the show. It requires away the idea of the marriage. It might be an element of the show, not too intimate for you personally like a recently produced couple as well as your relatives, your close buddies... I'd rather choose and when there's insufficient of cash you could denote it and get your supporters. Publicity and fame go ahead and take magic off, a minimum of for me personally.

  5. Specifying to what extent you've known each other is an awesome method to begin. This takes into consideration a smooth change into a tale about how you would design your weddings together, recalling how they spouted over their now-life partner after their first date, and so on.

  6. You are portraying some exceptionally admired life. I am a writing instructor and half of my companions who were filling in as scholars essentially left the calling since they didn't perceive any prospects. One of my companions worked in this field for around 5 years and she was exceptionally a long way from the way that you portrayed. In this manner, she worked with one of the to get the ideal resume and get another calling. She has been working in another organization for 9 months as of now and she has just had raised wages, since she was a magnificent worker.
