For a safe sleep environment never leave any items in your baby’s bed. Keep your baby supervised. Always and at all times remove any soft toys, sleep aids, cot bumpers, pillows and blankets to avoid suffocation and reduce the risk of SIDS.

1. VTech Baby Lil’ Critters Soothing Starlight Polar Bear

This cute, little polar bear is one of my baby’s sleep time favorites. Therefore, I love it too! It comes with several functions that soothes baby without hassles. First of all, you can choose from different soothing sound modes: nursery rhymes with calming melodies, lullabies, soothing nature sounds or nature sounds with lullabies. Additionally, it can project colorful stars on the ceiling. The best feature is probably the adjustable timer and the voice sensor which activates the music when the baby cries. The VTech polar bear can be used right from the newborn stage. We are still using it at 11 months and it gets bub to sleep every time.

2. Fisher-Price Soothe ‘n Snuggle Otter

Another cute helper to soothe baby is the Fisher-Price Soothe ‘n Snuggle Otter. For babies who usually only sleep on mommy’s arm this can make a huge difference. Because this cuddly otter mimics breathing and can even make heartbeat, snoring or womb sounds, baby won’t feel alone in the crib. This can be very comforting for little ones. Also, it makes bed time a whole lot easier for mom and dad. Maybe you finally will get your baby to fall asleep in their crib. Surely, this cuddly otter with its lights and calm sounds got everything it needs for a soothing bedtime routine.

3. MyBaby Soundspa On-The-Go

Get your baby to fall asleep anywhere with this portable white noise machine. The small, light-weight design makes it easy to pack it into the diaper bag and take it everywhere you go. Attach this handy sleep aid to the car seat, pram or the Pack ‘n Play for naps on-the-go and for overnight travel. Most babies love to fall asleep to calming sounds and white noises. You have the choice between four different sounds with adjustable volume. Pick from white noise, lullabies, heartbeat or ocean sounds. Whatever is most soothing for your little bub.

4. The Gro Company GroEgg2

To me the GroEgg is a must-have item for any nursery. Because it combines nightlight and room thermometer in one, it is an awesome baby sleep product. In addition to a temperature display, the colored light indicates the room temperature. This makes it a lot easier to keep a safe temperature during baby’s sleep. Additionally, the dimmable nightlight helps with night feeds without being too stimulating. I wouldn’t want to miss ours. We use it every night. And it never fails to set the right atmosphere to get our baby sleepy and comfy. The GroEgg is definitely a baby sleep gadget that will come in handy and guarantees a better sleep for you and your baby.

5. Love To Dream Swaddle

I know, I have mentioned this product several times on my blog. No, I’m not getting sponsored (maybe one day, if I’m lucky). I’m simply convinced of this awesome swaddle! In my opinion, this is the number one baby product for a safe and secure sleep at night. When I first used the Love To Dream Swaddle, my (back then) newborn started sleeping through the night. It surely changed the way bub was sleeping. On top of that, it gave me a whole different level of security. Because you just know the baby is warm, cozy and safely swaddled. There is no worrying about possibly getting entangled in blankets or interference with healthy hip development. Plus, it literally takes only 30 seconds to swaddle the baby incredibly effortlessly.

6. Baby Shusher

This futuristic looking thing is a very simple, but super effective baby sleep product. When you turn on the little portable gadget a shushing sound soothes your baby. Within five minutes the BabyShusher will even get an upset baby to sleep. The sound is very similar to a human voice shushing. Since babies are used to loud rhythmic noises from the womb, this will make them feel very comfortable. There is also a timer on the BabyShusher that can be set to either 15 or 30 minutes, so it doesn’t have to be turned off manually. Another great feature is the removable strap for mommy’s wrist. So you’re able to carry bub around while soothing her or him to sleep.

7. Lulla Doll

Honestly, the Lulla Doll is one of the most amazing baby sleep products! Not only is the Lulla Doll cuddly and soft, but the material can absorb mommy’s and daddy’s scent. Additionally, real life heartbeat and breathing sounds will give baby an extra feeling of safeness and comfort. It can even play for 12 hours non stop! For newborns and infants under the age of one this cuddly doll can be attached to the outside of the crib. The Lulla Doll has been developed with scientific experts and parents. Additionally, it is evinced to improve baby’s sleep. I love that you can choose between three different adorable designs. This makes it a suitable sleep aid for girls and boys. No matter which Lulla Doll you pick, I’m sure it’s going to be your baby’s new favorite cuddly toy.
