Last month we spent a few days in a rented holiday house close to the beach and had a fantastic time. After our first get-away experience in July I was not as worried about the kids sleeping in a strange environment but you never know how things will go. This time the twins got their very own bedroom with two bunk beds which they thought was very exciting. I am sure the combination of tiring play at the beach and their own selection of things from home is the reason why they slept brilliantly. Of course we took the BabyZoo Sleep Trainer Clock (because no one likes getting up early, especially not on a holiday) as well as their BabyZoo Night Lights from Parents Like Us.

Of course the BabyZoo Night Light ($29.90, available in green and pink), also known as Gus the Turtle, looks absolutely adorable and any child who has seen the move Finding Nemo will love getting their own little turtle buddy. However there is more to this night light than just the looks. These lights are battery operated (2x AA) so you won’t need a power point (perfect for on trips and holidays!) and they don’t get warm so kids can safely hold their glowing friend in their little hands.

My kids have always slept with a night light and I know it comforts them to watch the light when they go to sleep or wake up during the night. The BabyZoo Night Light switches on by pressing the turtle’s shell and switches off by pressing it again so it’s easy for the kids to do themselves (saves mum having to go in!). The four different time settings allow the light to stay on for 10, 20 or 30 minutes or even all night through, until turned off.

Parents Like Us offers a carefully selected range of items, picked by and for parents just like us. The store is relatively new and the range is purposely kept small, focusing only on hip, innovative baby essentials that you won’t find in every store. One of their opening specials is 30% off selected Cherub Baby products. You can pick up a 2-pack of Colour Changing Natribottles for just $21.95 (RRP $31.95), they change colour when the milk is too hot for your baby (how easy!) and of course they are BPA free.

To find out more about Parents Like Us, to browse the range and to order online visit Australian orders over $50 are shipped free of charge.
