My little boy met the Prince Lionheart Slumber bunny over a month ago when he was about 7 months of age. His big sisters fell completely in love with him and it was a challenge to stop them stealing him from his cot! They decided to call him Fluffy….not very original I thought and not quite a strong enough name for a bunny of this stature…So I put it to a public vote on the WonderBaba Facebook Page and am delighted to say that this handsome little dude will now be known as Frank!! Original for a soft bunny that much is for sure!
So let me tell you all about Frank 🙂 He comes from the Prince Lionheart family just like his distant relation the Slumber Bear – being huge fans of the slumber bear we were very excited when Frank arrived into the Pharmacy and just had to try him out! He has all of the same core functions as the Slumber bear, which means he contains a little sound box which fits snugly and safely into his back and he is sensor and motion activated. Depending on your preference he will soothe your baby when they are stirring or crying by playing white noise, wave sounds, womb noises, music, or even a recording of your own voice! He stops automatically after 15 minutes which is great as it means he takes it easy on the battery – I mean carrots of course! He has a USB charger which is pretty handy for when he is tired himself from all of that comforting and he has a useful little strap which means if he is joining your family on little trips he can be secured to the buggy and is more likely to make it home..no one needs the drama of a missing bunny!
What immediately attracted me to Frank (this blog sounds weird) was his lovely soft silkie ears – this bunny is heart achingly soft and snuggly and I know that even when my little boy is finished needing white noise to soothe him to sleep the Slumber Bunny will remain a favourite soft toy and provide years of comfort and company.
Frank is a very welcome addition to our house mostly because anything which can allow me to have a less interrupted nights sleep is a winner!! My little boy, like his big sisters before him, stirs and shuffles a lot in his sleep – often to the point where he wakes himself up and needs me to go in and provide reassurance of one kind or another. I’m not saying your baby will never need you at night – but certainly over the past month or so the Slumber Bunny has settled Callum back to sleep without my help on many occasions and I won’t lie – I’m very grateful! Frank can be turned on or off with a remote control also in addition to the sound and motion sensors – so again this is useful for exhausted mums like me!
The Slumber Bunny (aka Frank) is the softest most lovely bunny we have ever come across – although don’t tell that to the sleepytot as he is still critical for holding the soother in our house!! I’ve spoken to a few mums about the Slumber Bunny and Slumber Bear and what’s interesting is that different sounds seem to work for different babies – for example white noise is a firm favourite in our house but mums of younger babies find the womb noises (sounds just life a muffled heartbeat) to be the best for helping their little ones back to sleep. We like routine in our house – mostly to help us adults cope with life with three children who are still 4 and under so at 7pm I feed Callum whilst he listens to whitenoise or waves and then he dozes off – I pop him into his cot and the Slumber Bunny stays on and I feel this promotes a smooth transition. I then sneak out of his room like some sort of undercover ninja – creaky floor boards are my nemesis!! I find having noise on helps him not to notice my sleek exit – well it would if I didn’t trip over the pile of clothes waiting to make the laundry on my way out making more noise than a bull in a china shop! We can’t all be blessed with graceful co-ordination.. The noise of the slumber bunny also helps to stop Callum hearing the chaos of me getting the older two to bed which makes the whole evening a lot more manageable.
We’ve had a lovely time trying our the Slumber Bunny and know that he will remain a firm favourite for years to come! Whether Callum can manage to stop his sisters from stealing him is yet to be seen but I have a feeling he will put up a good fight!
