Cloud b :: Better Sleep with Mama Koala + Baby

I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

Sleeping was perhaps one of the greatest challenges in Buddy's first year. Yes, we had some feeding issues that resulted in me exclusively pumping for a year and supplementing also, but sleep is crucial for a happy mom and baby! This time around, I plan on utilizing every resource possible to help this little girl sleep peacefully so that I can avoid feeling out of control and constantly in a bubble. Constant noise is well-known for helping babies sleep, which makes sense considering the environment baby grows in for 9 months.

Cloud b is all about it's innovative collection of cuddly companions that offer soothing features for your child's different senses. Through award-winning products that focus on sound, sight, scent, touch, and even those that are multi-sensory, these adorable sleep essentials aim to help your child achieve better sleep.

The latest plush creature to join the range of sound soothing products from Cloud b is the Mama Koala and Baby. Just like the Sleep Sheep that Cloud b is best known for, the Mama Koala plays 4 soothing sounds and has two sleep-timer options that make it very convenient for parents to step out of the room (granted baby is not crying) and not have to return to turn it off once she is asleep.

Yes, yes, I know! Nothing is supposed to be in the crib, so that was just for fun since baby Reynolds isn't here yet! The best way to use Mama Koala is to attach her to the outside of the crib with the velcro strap on her back as you can see in the photo above. She has velcro on her paws to carry her little Baby Koala, which doubles as a cute baby rattle.

Mama Koala has a removable sound box inside her back that offers the four soothing sounds of Mother’s Heartbeat, Spring Showers, Ocean Waves, and Whale Songs. The timer switch is just below the four sound options, and the timer can be set for 23-minutes or 45-minutes to continually soothe baby with whatever sound you choose. The volume can be controlled using the knob at the bottom, and I have to say I love the wide volume range it has so you can set it to whatever you individual needs are.

A closer look at the adorable Baby Koala! So stinkin' cute, and the perfect size for little hands.

We never used white noise, music, or any other sleep-inducing techniques with Buddy (oh how I want to kick myself now for not trying!), so I'm excited to use Mama Koala with this baby when sleep inevitably becomes a struggle. I love that this is a product that will also grow with your child, and the sound box is even removable if you need to place it in a small spot or travel lightly with your beloved sound soother. Need a baby shower gift? Consider a cuddly sound soother from Cloud b for new parents. 

The Mama Koala and Baby retails for $34.95. You can shop online at Cloudb.com, or use the store locator to find this and other Cloud b sound soothers and sleep products near you.

What a wonderful idea this is. I honestly do not know where the idea that babies needed silence came from but from what I have seen--the noisier the atmosphere-the faster the baby went to sleep. And these are soothing sounds--perfect.

It's adorable just on its own without the bonus of the soothing sounds. I wouldn't be able to resist this myself, would make a great gift.

We've always used white noise but I like this idea that puts it closer to the baby. Plus it's just cute!

This looks like a great product to try to get babies to go to slepp (and stay there- with background noise). Thanks for the review.

This is so adorable and I wish these were around when my kids were little. My sister has one of these for her little one and loves it. Thanks for sharing.

What a good idea to have such a cute bear as a companion that has soothing sounds for Baby! I just love it and this would be great for my new little nephew!
