During our time of unemployment right after AppleBlossom was born we were not much into buying her things, but there were some things that we compromised on. One was that I was dying to have one of these Cloud B Sleep Sheep. We were in the educational toy store and this was the first real thing that I wanted to buy for her, so we compromised. Instead of getting the full sized real Sleep Sheep, we bought the Sleep Sheep on the Go. We use it everywhere!!
I could say that mostly it stays in her crib, but that's not counting for when it's out in the living room, in the car, or on the stroller. There have been times (beginning of teething I think) where she is just about inconsolable and we try everything. I turn up the volume on the rain sound of the sleep sheep and put it near her ear and it's a miracle worker. She stops crying and just listens. It is a great distraction tool. Just about every night this is what lulls her into sleep and it makes just enough noise to cover up any sounds of our preparations for bed with brushing teeth and running showers in the bathroom next to the wall where her crib is.

Easily I could say that this is one of the best purchases we have made thus far. My friend Lindsey just reviewed another Cloud B product, the Dozy Dolphin on the Go and I suggest you check out her opinions too.

Brand: cloud bMy husband said that he thinks it even helps him go to sleep at night. The one con we have to state is how it stops abruptly when the time runs out. It would be much easier on the one who is sleeping for it to gradually fade rather than the sudden silence. Other than that, we love it dearly.
