We have the full sized sheep and the travel giraffe versions. My daughter uses the sheep at nap time with the nanny and the giraffe in the stroller/car when we travel. They are great because they are consistent comforting soothing and playful noises that my daughter can rely on and relax or sleep to. Not to mention, cozy and fun for her to hold as a lovey.
I love that it comes with a velcro strap on its back - we never loose it!!!
Only downfall - it turns off after 23 or 45 minutes - no way to keep it on longer. :(
The sleep sheep was a gift from grandma to our son. I honestly have no idea if the white noise does anything to help our son sleep- we really struggle with sleeping. It definitely helps mommy and daddy fall asleep!
As far as white noise, I think the rainfall and ocean sounds are really the best. The whale noises are a little strange sounding and the heartbeat is terrible. The automatic shutoff function is nice, particularly when, as I mentioned above, mommy and daddy have been lulled to sleep by the sheep. But beware! Do not place the sleep sheep anywhere near a hard surface if it is in bed with you! Many a night we have been startled out of sleep when one of us knocked the sheep into the headboard, activating the heartbeat sound (always that terrifying heartbeat noise). What a annoyance to find that you've been awoken not by your child's hunger, but by the deafening bwomp...bwomp of the sheep, all the while whisper-cursing as you struggle to turn the sheep off before the noise awakens your little one.
I received this as a shower gift from my registry. We don't really use this sheep as much as I thought we would have. It is really cute and looks nice in her room, but I think she could care less about it. I haven't really noticed if she likes it or not. We have an Ipod Nano in her room and use that a lot more than this. I think we've maybe turned this on a total of 3 times. Kind of a waste of $.
All the features to the cloud B sleep sound machine are great. It's portable and can be attached to the crib or a stroller. The volume control is easily accessible and it's nice that a timer option is available. I like that there are a variety of sounds as options, the heartbeat I think being the most soothing. The only negative about this product is that there is no way of knowing how useful it will be for your child and for how long. Initially I used it when my son was a newborn and I thought he liked it, but newborns sleep regardless of background noise. As he got older, he preferred complete silence to sleep.
I never had one of these sound machines when my son who is now almost 10 so didn't think I needed one with my daughter. Good think someone got us one of these as a gift for my daughter who is now 4 1/2 months old. Even on the fussiest nights, we put her down and turn her sheep on (her favorite is the rainfall sound) and she's out in under 5 minutes. Same for nap time. So far we haven't had to change the batteries at all and we use it every night, and throughout the day so the battery life so far I can't complain about. The only down side is that now we're getting ready to transition her into her own room and crib from a bassinet in our room and I'm thinking I may need to buy another because I'm so used to the soothing sounds to fall asleep now!
We received the full size one and the travel one from each of our son's Grandma's. It is absolutely adorable and my son likes using the travel one as a stuffed animal after we took the mechanics out. Unfortunately, it doesn't work well as intended because it shuts off after 20 or 40 minutes, and as any new parent will tell you, getting a baby to sleep is much easier than getting them to STAY asleep.
I got this as a baby shower gift and I must say the sleep sheep is very cute. My kids weren't too crazy about having it on. Like others, I just ended up getting a white noise machine or an mp3 player that we just leave an old ipod plugged in to that plays soft lullaby music all the time and doesn't shut off. I do like that it attaches to the top of a crib so you can have it in with an infant.
This product was a gift, and is used on a regular basis, both for nap time and nighttime. The sounds are very soothing, and are part of our bedtime rituals. This is a product that I buy for expectant friends.
I have used the Sleep Sheep in both a childcare setting and in my own home with my daughter. I have found it useful in both settings! I used it for over six months before needing to change the batteries. My favorite feature is the volume control. I usually keep it fairly low, but when we have company and my daughter is sleeping in her room, I can adjust the volume so that she's not startled by noise from another room. The smaller version of the sleep sheep (the one we own) has a velcro strap so it can be strapped to the top rail of the crib and out of reach of the baby. I like this feature also, since we don't feel safe having stuffed animals or loose blankets in our daughter's crib. Great safety feature! I would have given it a rating of 5 if it had a "stay on" feature rather than only playing for 45 minutes.
It's soft and adorable and you can strap it to the crib and comes with several sounds and a volume control, the rain setting being my favorite. It also has ocean noises, whale noises, and heartbeat noises. My daughter is terrified of it and screams whenever I turn it on, but she is fine when it is off. It might be because it's a sheep, because my son is scared of sheep too. When she was a newborn, she liked it for a couple of months and the rain setting would help her go to sleep quickly, but she's 8 months old now and hates it for some reason. So it may not work for your child or may not always work.
My son loves his Sleep Sheep! It's great as a noise blocker so that his hearing focuses on that sound and he learned to sleep through other noises. It also is a great calming device for when he gets upset. I love that it can be hung on the side of the crib and away from him while sleeping, but close enough that he can hear it without the volume being all the way up.
My son unfortunately is a child that needs constant noise to sleep. This sheep turns off after approximately a 1/2 hour and early on, he would wake up the moment it stopped. We soon realized that we needed to also use just a sleep sound machine (we have an adult version, didn't feel the need to spend extra $$ on a "baby" specific one...works just as well!) so he stayed asleep longer. However, this sheep is very sweet to cuddle with and my son will hug it now when he takes his naps.
My son can't go to sleep without it. We love the waves!! It travels nicely too
this little gem makes super soothing noises and is small and easy to use. love this product and would really recommend it.
The sleep sheep was so helpful for our restless sleeper. My daughter was not a good sleeper but, when a friend of mine suggested the sleep sheep it made a huge difference. The calming sounds helped to settle her in and get to sleep much faster. She loved the ocean and rain sounds very soothing.
My daughter loves her sleep sheep. It has 4 sounds to choose from: whales, rain, ocean, and heartbeat. She likes the ocean sounds. It has a timer and if she is still awake when it shuts off, she can turn it back on. It has a loop, so you can attach it to a crib rail.
