A giveaway for parents of kids with sleep problems


I've written before about the kids sleeping in our bed—on November 3, 2008, to be precise. I haven't said much about it since because nothing had changed.

But Dave and I were getting increasingly fed up. Two adults and two kids in a queen-size bed isn't all that fun, or conducive to good sleep. It's not conducive to lots of other stuff, either. So Dave and I came up with a plan.

First, I went to a local store and bought a Cloud B Twilight Turtle (above). I'd seen it advertised, and it looked cool. It projects a starry night sky onto ceilings and walls in three colors—blue, green and amber. Heck, I wanted one for me.

Then I ordered Pillow Pets. The kids had seen them on TV and were asking for them. Call us suck-ahs, call us desperate parents, whatever. We got Max the purple hippo, Sabrina the dalmatian.

Last, and this was Dave's brilliant/desperate idea, we blew up the Aerobeds we keep in the basement and put them in Max's room.

Then I told the kids that we would sell them to a traveling circus if they did not sleep in there.

OK, I didn't really.


In the last few weeks, the kids have happily gone to bed in Max's room. The Twilight Turtle stars and moon are mesmerizing—Sabrina likes to try and count them. The kids think the beds are fun, and the Pillow Pets are cuddly.

OK, so the kids still end up coming to our room in the middle of the night. But this is half the battle, won.

I asked The Cloud B peeps if they'd be game to spread the sleep love around, and they offered up two Turtles as giveaways, each worth $34.


Or you could get the ladybug version, if you'd like.

You can also get 15 percent off Cloud B products now through March 18, 2010, by using the code MAX-0210.

To enter, just leave a comment about your child's sleep habits...or lack of habits! Also, mention whether you'd like the turtle or ladybug.

  1. No kids of my own yet, but an auntie to two little ones who can't seem to sleep if my sister isn't with them! I think the twilight turtle looks like a brilliant way to make falling asleep fun.

  3. Horrible. Sleeper. (like, think newborn). I don't even want to get into details.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Aj is a horrible sleeper. We alternate nights because we KNOW he *will* be up around 2-3 am for the day. Even on valium, melatonin and klonopin. God help us, I feel like my mind is bleeding... :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Bits is an awful sleeper, just awful. She rarely sleeps through the night, and at three, it's pretty exhausting. I could see something like the turtle or ladybug working, at least for a while :P

    Love the pics of the kids, they look so content..and I'm so glad to read about other mommas with two kids in their queen bed *phew*

  6. My daughter would sleep all day if I did not wake her. My son, on the other hand, requires very little sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have a 7 month old that sleeps great - as long as someone is holding him! Makes for some unproductive afternoons but he is CRANKY without a nap. He still sleeps in the pack n play in our room and sadly we shower in one of the other bathrooms just to avoid waking him. He only wakes up twice a night BUT is a pain to get back to sleep after a feeding... He loves staring at mobiles and thinks that every ceiling fan is a mobile - maybe we should attach something to each fan blade???

  9. my son is a really good sleeper, he has the occasional bad night with a few wakings or wanting a bottle, even though he is 14 months old. Otherwise he's a heavy sleeper and goes all night.

    I like the lady bug.

  10. Ellen, I sooooooo need that. I thought about buying them for the girls for Christmas and Jeff vetoed it for some reason.

    My girls sleep on the couch. Because there are "ghosts" in their room. GAH!!!

    I want both, really ;), but the ladybug would match their room.

    I aleady follow you on Twitter, but I just added Cloud B on Twitter and Facebook. And subscribed to your feed.

  13. My daughter needs her closet light left on when she goes to bed and also listens to some quiet music. She goes to bed pretty well with those 2 things. She used to sleep with us every night until we went on vacation and she had her own bed. She's never tried to sneak in our room since. Best $1,000 we ever spent. Would love the ladybug.

  14. I've been eyeing up this turtle for Emma, but haven't found a local store that sells that. I didn't even know there was a ladybug! We have the Cloud B lamb that makes sounds but that doesn't help us since Emma is deaf. Didn't know she would be deaf when we were given it as a gift!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Both my daughters are pretty good about sleeping except when they are sick. My 5-year-old will occasionally wake me up in the middle of the night because she can't find her favorite stuffed animal - usually it's right under the covers.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Emily was a good sleeper until recently. She likes to wake up at least once a night (usually more). We live an apartment the size of a shoe box so she is in our room. Sometimes she will wake up crying and need comfort. Other times just wakes up and wants to hang out. The worst part is - she will grind her teeth until she falls back to sleep. The noise MAKES ME NUTS! I have tried putting cotton balls in my ears, but it does not block the sound. I have slept on the couch too - that does work, but isn't as comfy as my own bed.

    The turtle and lady bug look SO cool. We have a lady bug theme in Emily's crib right now. : )

  19. Alexandra...

    Our son's sleeping improved greatly after I found out, and figured out, that blanket weights just soothe him to sleep. I purchased semi heavy curtain tassles and sewed them into the 4 corners of his blankets. Presto. The "weight" of the blankets pulling down makes him sleep "awesomely." I was so surprised, when some years later, I saw an ad in the back of a magazine for "weighted" blankets. Wow. So, I'm not the only one this works for.

  20. The regular kids sleep okay (for the most part), but the special needs kiddo? We're on 9+ years of little sleep, since he can't stay down for more than 2-3 hours at a time. He does puzzle the neuros.

  35. I would love the ladybug! My peanut doesn't sleep the night, she wakes up frequently. She is scared of the dark as well, so we have to leave her bedroom light on all night. This ladybug would be a great relaxation tool for her I think!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My God-nephew has trouble going to sleep at night, so he will stay up way past his bedtime (or even an adult's bedtime). So, his mother will put in his favorite movie, Up, and play it on repeat. He eventually falls asleep, though the time I witnessed it, it took the second time around for him to sleep.

    If I win, I'd like the turtle.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We read a story before bedtime and then we look out the window and say good night to the moon, stars, owl, neighbor and the its God Bless everyone. This seems to settle them down and sleeping isn't a problem.

  51. ladybug please - my little one falls asleep on the couch every night and we carry him upstairs. He wakes up in the middle of the night and comes to our bed most nights. Haven't pushed too hard but trying to get him into better routine

  52. My daughters are almost 6 (not twins--2 months apart). They sleep in sleeping bags next to our bed. They are adopted and are terrified we will not be there when they wake up. They used to go to bed in their beds and come in to our bed in the middle of the night, but they got too big and my arthritis couldn't take it anymore. This is the compromise. If these would help I would buy 20. I hope someday they realize we will always be there for them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have a 14 month old who slept in our full size bed until a month ago. She has a LOVE for turtles, and is afraid of the dark. I really feel like this would be a great solution to the problem.

  54. Roa is 20 months and has slept 5 hours in a row twice! He still breastfeeds round the clock. I may be breastfeeding him as he graduates at the pace he takes in solids....
    Sob story, I know.
    Melatonin, botox injections, HBOT, nothing helps this kid relax to SLEEP!
    We just bought a new moon night light from IKEA. He LOVES light up things! That turtle would ROCK his little wide-eyed, bushy tailed socks off!

  60. I don't need the prize--we have a planetarium-astronomy thingy that projects the stars around the room, but I now don't feel bad about "quirky" sleeping arrangements!

    Lots of exercise works well to get 'em down--if they play hard, they're too tired to gripe for long. It helps to have a fenced yard to run around in and an ugly cardboard "fort" to play in on the porch!

  61. I'd love the little turtle for my little one. Every time he gets sick, it's like we have to sleep train him all over again. This might help! Thanks!

  68. So funny you posted about this I literally just googled that turtle yesterday! Two weeks ago we took Leah's beloved pacifier away and he sleep has been on and off. In the next month we'd like to transition her to a big girl bed (getting ready for baby #2) and I'm super nervous about how she is going to react. I thought I'd love to find something that projects a light show on the ceiling for her. Sure enough I googled the turtle and thought how great it would be...I also am highly considering the pillow pets! Thanks for a great review on both of them. I think i'm sold and hopefully Leah will be too! I'd love for her to transition easily since she was a fantastic sleeper before. She's still a good sleeper, just has a hard time falling asleep. The tears are heartbreaking!

  98. Lately my daughter has been (knock on wood and thank the Lord) sleeping like an angel. She goes right to sleep when we put her down and usually only fusses if her paccie gets out of reach. I would love to have one of these for that day (that I know is surely coming) that she decides she doesn't want to sleep so soundly any more.
    I would pick the Ladybug.

  125. oh wow, Sleep habits or as you say...Lack of...that would be my 8 year old, from the day we brought her home she has HORRIBLE sleeping problems, from night terrors, sleep walking, teeth grinding and flat out refusal to sleep maybe because of the monsters, to now that she is older it is because of the bears outside. Um we dont have any bears around where i live. I would LOVE to have the ladybug. The problem with her sleeping habits is that my youngest who WAS a great sleeper is starting to wake up because of her. Yipee!

  140. My kiddo has lots of anxiety about going to sleep. Sometimes he's great; but sometimes, like last night, he woke up at 2:30 and didn't get back to sleep until 6, which messes up the day completely. The turtle is SO cool!

  142. My daughter loves to look at her books before she falls asleep and I think this light would be the perfect thing to help and let her fall asleep after.

  146. Sleep...what is sleep? I have an 8 month old baby who will not sleep at night. Maybe if he was not alone he would sleep better if he had a new turtle friend.

  147. Oh Ellen - I am so glad you posted this and I could see we are not alone on the sleep issues. Next week we have a bunch of appointments to try and figure out if there is a physical reason that he is up 2-4 times a night. I can tell you that there is a reason he does not yet have a sibling :)

    My latest post on it - http://ikehappens.blogspot.com/2010/02/sleeping.html

    If I won, I would love to give the Little Dude the turtle. At this point I am willing to try anything!

  148. oh those Cloud B animals look like a great idea - something I should try with Kayla.

    She USED to sleep perfectly - back when we lived in NM - no problems at night.

    Then we moved to MD, then Joe deployed, then all that went downhill. She wakes up multiple times a night and I'm so tired of bringing her back to bed time after time after time. It's exhausting and I just want to sleep. So she ends up in bed w/me every.single.night. I know we're going to be in a world of hurt trying to break this habit when Joe is back and we're all living in SC (another move! another change of schools!) Sigh...

  156. My oldest son still sleeps with me with nightlight, which make it hard for me and the baby(who sleeps in his basinet nicely) to sleep. I like turtle one

  161. My neice feels it's necessary to go climbb in bed, now that there is a new baby in the house! This would make her happy and want to sleep in her own room! (Or unplug it and move it into mommy's room! hehe)

    Thanks!
