Final Score

Roughly 4 weeks ago, Jayden began to fuss around a bit when we put him to bed. He typically is really easy going when it’s bedtime. Somewhere between supper and bedtime he gets a quick bath, we play around a bit, we do some reading and “learning”, change diapers, he drinks another bottle and then he goes to bed. However recently he began to always want to continue playing even when he was really tired and exhausted. You could really tell. He would still get up and start jumping around in his crib, “talking” and not wanting to sleep. When we would lay him down he would begin fussing a bit and a few minutes later he would be up again. This cycle would continue for nearly 30-45min before he would finally give in and sleep.

Of course this is normal considering that he now is over a year old and we as parents need to adjust to new cycles in regards to his energy levels, his development, his growth, etc however we figured we could do something to keep his calm while he is in bed so that he doesn’t get up and jump around, rather slowly falls asleep by being clam on his own.

So Renata began Googling and researching on some toys and in the end came across this [easyazon_link identifier=”B00NGIZXAK” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”hk22-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]cool little owl from Fisher Price[/easyazon_link] that we purchased off [easyazon_link identifier=”B00NGIZXAK” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”hk22-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]Amazon[/easyazon_link]. We knew what it did and what it looked like, but the question remained open in regards to how Jayden would react and if it would actually help him fall asleep on his own without getting over excited, getting up and jumping around in his crib? We knew that he would be excited to receive another toy, yet would it help in the end?

It arrived within 48 hours of purchasing and we were excited to introduce him to his new bed time friend – the owl.

Now the Fisher Price Soothe and Glow collection contains more than just this owl. Here is the product line available on Amazon:

and of course our owl:

Now as cool as I find the other animals, the reason we opted for the owl is because its oval. We figured that it would be easier to hold in bed while laying down. A hand on each side. Th elight glowing in the middle and its big eyes. While Fisher Price also has the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00NFET6TY” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”hk22-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]Snuga….[/easyazon_link] collection we found the Soothe and Glow collection to be more appealing.

We introduced him that evening to his new toy while getting ready for bed and immediately he began laughing at the owls eyes and at the toy in general. We then showed him how to activate the music, by pressing the yellow stomach area (gentle push) and his eyes widened with surprise. We turned it off and let him do it (turn it off simply by holding the stomach for three seconds). And he did it. We laid him down into his crib, gave him his owl and did what we always do – tell him good night and walk out. That was it folks! Since then he takes his owl every night and holds him, watches him and listens to him while falling asleep. He has not been fussy since.

Conclusion
A great product for babies (toddlers) to assist in falling asleep. Again, it widely depends on your child and how they perceive bedtime, but the Fisher Price Soothe and Glow series has worked great for us. The owl is soft, cuddly and easy to handle. The music it plays is not too loud nor too soft. The volume along with the songs it plays is great.
