Forget counting sheep to fall asleep, one is all it takes

The Birmingham Gazette is undertaking some of the most in depth parenting features you will find anywhere over the next 12 months, helping new mums, and dads to get to grips with their newborns' needs making sure they have all the best knowledge and advice for a great head start.

Everyone knows that for all the joys new babies can bring, the early days of parenting aren’t always a walk in the park. Thankfully, following the invention of Ewan, the dream sheep™ tired parents everywhere can finally get a good night’s sleep!

Ewan emits soothing sounds at a low base frequency and a calming pink glow, which when combined, help settle babies and toddlers into a peaceful sleep. The heartbeat and womb sounds are actual recordings, not computer generated and there are a variety of soothing sounds to choose from including rain, harp to name just two.

Ewan can be used at home in the cot or Moses basket but also when out and about too - he can be secured to the pushchair or car seat by his Velcro tail. Ewan’s tail is also great for securing a dummy or teething ring to, so there’s no worry about it getting lost or falling out of the cot or buggy. There is a 20 minute timer and automatic shut off with full volume control and it is easily powered with 3 xAAA batteries.
