Now where do I start with our whisbear?,
When i say that this small bear has saved us SO many sleepless nights I know what you probably think (yeah right).
But I can’t stress enough it has, when we had our first child Blake, we struggled so much just to get him to sleep on his own for just five minutes, I literally mean at night times when we would go to bed one of us use to have to have him on our chest just so we could get a couple of hours sleep each, we even had shift patterns where we would swap over just so we could both get the same amount of sleep.
Then come the time when that no longer worked, so what could we possible do next?? we tried a number of different things from rocking him to walking around the house (in the middle of the night must I add), we noticed he was more calmer when there was background noise i.e. the tele but thankfully just one day he decided he would sleep straight through but it took until he was 14 month.
Then obviously we decided we would brave it a try again for another baby, brave right?? we thought so anyway…
With our previous experience with Blake it got us thinking is there anything out there that can help? well.. as the due date was approaching a good friend recommended ‘whisbear- the humming bear’ so we purchased it, we was a little sceptical as obviously we thought no way can a bear help a baby sleep??.. MY GOODNESS how wrong could we have been?, from the minute Hallie-May was born her whisbear was introduced to her, playing the pink noise and mimicking what she would have heard inside the womb for the last nine months.
It also has a built in ‘cry sensor’ that will activate the second she starts to cry… playing ‘pink noise’ for 40 minutes before gradually fading to sooth her gently back of to sleep, and I must say it was a life saver not having to get up to turn it on every time she made a noice, its also very reassuring knowing that your baby will be safe as it has magnetic paws which hooks over the side of your cot or crib.
‘Whats pink noise’?? I asked the same question but it is a thing..
Pink noise regulates your brain waves helping to reduce the release of a stress hormone which has been proven to be more calming for your little one than white noise.. lets face it the last thing we want is our babies stress levels to raise any higher than they have to be.
I remember the first time Hallie-May started to cry in the night (not needing a feed) we both looked at each other like ‘here we go again’ but then magic happened whisbear kicked in and started playing the shushing noise and then just like that… back to sleep, I honestly wasn’t expecting her to react as well as she did and ever since it hasn’t left her side even when we’re on the go we now have the whisbird that clips to the car seat or the pram it has the same pink noice that works so well on Hallie-May.
I can honestly say that the whisbear still works to this day and has the same effect on Hallie-May like it has done for the last six months keeping her calm and settled so she can get a restful sleep, not only that the bear can grow with her as it has sensory parts and bright colours for the perfect all round stimulation, i can see this being her life long friend.
Out of all the things we have brought this is by far the best well used product that we could have ever imagined purchasing, we all love it and it even sends us to sleep we would definitely recommend to any new parent.
