Tiny Love

If you are a regular reader of Hip little one you may have noticed a reoccurring theme in my posts: sleep. It’s obvious that I could do with some more of it and we are slowly getting there, all it takes is patience and a bit of help from some fabulous little gadgets. After five years of almost daily use our trusty old mobile recently stopped working so we upgraded to this gorgeous new Magical Night Mobile by Tiny Love:

Tiny Love Magical Night Mobile

Stage 1: Magical Night Mobile with Canopy Projector

At Tiny Love they know how tricky baby bedtime can be (and how much babies and parents need their sleep!) so they designed their new Magical Night Mobile with lots of clever features to help your baby fall (and stay) asleep peacefully. Suitable from birth the charming animal themed mobile grows with your child through three stages so it can be enjoyed for a long time to come and is a fabulous investment for new parents.

As we all know a soothing tune can be a great tool to help little ones get to sleep which is why the Magical Night Mobile plays nine different tunes (in three different categories) that can be started by the simple push of a button. The volume is easy to adjust and music plays for a lengthy thirty minutes, by then our daughter is usually fast asleep. The three round buttons are easy to find in the dark and once your baby gets older he can turn the music on all by himself. Our 9-month old has already started playing DJ when she wakes up in the morning, she doesn’t always go back to sleep but either way it keeps her happy and entertained.

In the early days (0-5 months) the Magical Night Mobile will catch the gazing eyes of little newborns with the cute, dangling animals friends that slowly spin around under the canopy. The continious movement, bright colours and interesting shapes will grab their attention and will help keep them happy while they drift off to sleep. But that’s not all, the mobile also works as a projector with sweet animal images being displayed on the canopy which is the perfect distance for young babies to look at.

As your baby gets older and starts rolling around and sitting/standing up (5-18 months) the Magical Night Mobile canopy can be removed, that way your baby can still listen to the familiar tunes that have by now become an unmissable part of the bedtime routine and at the same time discover an exciting new mode of play: a ceiling projection. At this stage children are able to see that much further and can follow with their eyes all the moving animal patterns that appear and disappear on the ceiling above their bed.

Stage 3: Bedside Light and Starry Night Projector

Even later on (18 months+) your baby, who is by now almost turning into a toddler, can still sleep with their loyal bedtime companion. The Magical Night Mobile can now be removed from the cot and placed on a bedside table or drawers, with the canopy reattached the mobile turns into an adorable bedside music box while projecting a delightful starry night sky on the ceiling.

The Tiny Love Magical Night Mobile (RRP $99) runs on 4 C-size batteries (not included) and can easily be attached to most standard cots.

Tiny Love

As you probably know by now our gorgeous little Sybil is proving to be quite the challenge in the sleep department. At almost 8 months old she is still waking up many times over night and most nights we are lucky to get 5 hours of broken sleep. In the early days she already refused to sleep in her cot, often falling asleep in her bouncer oblivious to the noise of her siblings and other loud sounds around her.

Rocker Napper RedWhile I would have preferred her to sleep in her own bed I came to accept that this was the only way she’d get some sleep and I could spend some much needed time with the other children (and on a rare occasion get something done in the house), but I was a bit worried about her sleeping sitting up that much. Good news: there is a solution for little rocker nappers like our cheeky lady, check out the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper from Tiny Love.

Tiny Love Rocker NapperThe 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is a multi functional (and very stylish) piece of baby furniture that can be used for feeding, playing and sleeping. The reclining seat has three different settings, ranging from laying flat to sitting up so babies can sit/rest in a position that suits them best (particularly useful when your baby suffers from reflux!). If your baby falls asleep while sitting up you can simply lay the seat flat in one simple action, creating a comfortable, safe and cosy little bassinet-like bed.

Tiny Love Rocker Napper (2)Of course the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is fitted with plenty of other great features to help make your life with a newborn easier, starting with the soothing rocking motion. The rounded frame allows for gentle movement in all three reclining positions or you can ‘lock’ the frame to keep it still. Your little bundle will love listening to the different tunes and looking at/playing with the dangling toys and lights on the adjustable arm.

Whether you prefer striking red, cool blue or neutral brown, there is a Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper ($159.95) to suit your taste and decor. Unlike most other rockers on the markets this hip design has a very generous weight limit of 18kg so it will last you much longer than other alternatives. We only discovered the Rocker Napper when Sybil was 4 months old but we have used it a lot since and judging by this happy face we’ll be enjoying it for a long time to come. It’s such an easy seat to take from room to room and it’s very sturdy even for a wrigglepot like her.
