We’re finally getting into a bedtime routine for Little Miss Cub. While Papa puts Cub to bed, I nurse the Little Miss in our bed (where she sleeps). I nurse her to sleep, and to create a bit of a soothing atmosphere I’ve been turning on our Babymoov Project Night Light. Because we keep our house fairly cool and don’t want her pulling blankets over her face, I put her in her 2.5 TOG Inventa Sleep Bag.
The Inventa Sleep bag is pretty genius. It is equipped with two “vents” which you can unzip as needed if baby is getting too warm.
One set of snaps at the shoulder make it easy to put on. The Inventa comes in two sizes: 4-12 months and 12-36 months. You can fold up the bottom to make the sack shorter when baby is smaller. When you’ve got a walker on your hands, the sack fully unzips to make room for little legs. I try to avoid diaper changes in the middle of the night, but when I need to, it’s easy to change her bum too thanks to the extra-long zipper.
The Inventa Sleep Bag is the only one we’re using this winter. I love that it’s filled with breathable bamboo. Since we co-sleep, I like to unzip the vents when my husband and I get in bed. Little Miss stays warm even though her mother is a blanket hog. (She sleeps on my left, between me and the bed rail.)
The Babymoov Project Night Light runs on two AA batteries, making it ultra portable. This is handy since sometimes Little Miss is in our bed, sometimes I place her in her crib. Cub also likes to bring the Night Light into his fort (aka: cardboard box).
The Project Night Light plays seven lullabies, plus nature sounds and a heartbeat sound. The light projects colour-changing stars on the ceiling.
You can use the Babymoov with lights and music at the same time, music alone or light alone.
I like that the Project Night Light is small and ultra-portable, but it lacks a few features to be an awesome bedtime companion. The music and/or light turn off after 15 minutes, and this isn’t something you can change. To turn the volume down, you have to press the volume button until it cycles through all the higher volume options, meaning it gets louder before it gets quieter. It would be great if the unit came with a wall adapter and a rechargeable battery. The screen on the top of the unit can be easily removed, which is a bit of a problem if your child is playing with it. While for now I like being able to place it near where Little Miss Cub is lying, when she is bigger, it’ll have to be well out of her reach.
