Avi's been a really good sleeper from day 1. We've been superlucky in that. Napping has been a whole nother ball game though! Until very recently, she was not in a routine of napping regularly. She'd fight it and fight it not wanting to miss a moment. And I totally get it cause I'm not a good napper either (even when I need it...even when I'm sick), but it'd create a monster!
We tried everything and some things helped a bit. Cloud B stuffed animals and the soothing sounds and lights they emanate are pretty amazing! They create a calm and serene environment almost anywhere. The first one we got was the Sleep Sheep. Avi was really little and I think it was the only one they had out at the time. It was cute and cuddly and had a variety of sounds to help ease her to sleep. Since then the company has expanded and I can't help buying new ones when I see them around! We've purchased the Twilight Turtle (which give you three color options for constellations projected from the shell onto the ceiling) and the Dozy Dolphin (which makes a variety of water sounds and from which a portion of proceeds goes to an organization which supports endangered species).
These make cute gifts and are total life savers in a pinch!
