Sleep Better with a Companion from Dream Team Pets
Have you heard of Dream Team Pets? They are plush pets that are designed to help your child sleep better at night. Every young child needs a stuffed animal or two to sleep with, right? Mine has about 4 or 5 he sleeps with every night. Dream Team Pets goes a step further and provides a book and certificate with their adorable pets. There’s a Lion, (pictured above), a pink kitten and an adorable dog. Kids reward their pet with stickers and the certificate for a good night’s sleep. Parents can read the short book to them and there’s also a place in the back to fill out about your pet. Just darling!! But does it really help?
My little one always wants to sleep with me when daddy is away on business. I think that’s pretty normal. But what happens is …..when daddy comes home he still wants to sleep with me (us)…and that’s not going to work. We have a king bed, but this little guy likes to move about and squirms way too much, and hubby and I get no sleep. We are not co-sleepers by any means, and don’t want to get that started, so that’s why I thought “Lionel” would be good for him.
It’s not a bad idea to buy stuffed animals for the purpose of helping your child sleep in his or her own bed, and through the night, but not sure if that’s the only thing that will help. With mine, it’s not helping, he insists that he either sleep with me or I sleep with him. I try to reassure him that everything is going to be okay and that it’s best that he sleep in his own bed and in his own room. I do believe this is a phase he’s going through and that he’ll grow out of it. He’s just not having it!! So what do we do…we get Lionel the Lion and hope that snuggling with him will help!!!
On another note – recently, I bought him a Frankenstein costume online for Halloween (he saw it and wanted it). It’s really cute and not scary at all. BUT…he said he had a bad dream about Frankenstein and now he will not wear his costume. He has no costume now to wear for Halloween or at pre-k next week…sheesh!! HELP!!
Perhaps Dream Team Pet Mighty Lion will help your little one sleep better at night. There’s more to choose from on Amazon for boys and girls.
Hopefully, your child can sleep better with a companion from Dream Team Pets.
Hey readers, if you have any suggestions for me to help Brody WANT to sleep in his own bed, I’d love to hear them. >>>>>>INSERT – it’s now 2016 and Brody still wants to sleep with us!!! UGH! However, he STILL sleeps and plays with Lionel!!
