White Noise Machine
I’ve tried a few different machines, and I like this one the most because A.) It’s only $30 B.) it gets loud making it great for a large room and C.) it takes batteries so when you have a power outage (or when your generator runs out of gas when camping), the white noise will continue.
Blackout EZ Curtains
During sleep training, we want to eliminate as much light in the room as possible. A dark sleep environment is a key piece of the puzzle for success. This is a great long term, affordable option to make sure your child's room is dark for sleep times. They also keep out heat, cold and outside noises.
Woolino Sleep Sack
This product is my all time fav sleep sack. No need to worry about TOG ratings and switching out sleep sacks with the changing seasons. I used this 4 season sleep sack from the time my baby girls outgrew their swaddles until I transitioned to a big girl bed (3 years old). It’s made out of merino wool so it regulates Babe’s body temp- keeping her warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

This product helps teach early rising toddlers what an appropriate wake up time is. If your child's room is dark (which it should be!), they really don't have any way to tell when it is time to start their day. The clock has a sun that you set when you want to rise and your child will learn that when the sun comes up, it is time to get up. This clock is only as good as the parents consistency! If you stay consistent with it- they will catch on fast! But, if Mom and Dad don't follow the rules with waiting for the sun to come up before getting the child up, there's no reason for the child to either!

Pack and Play
This product is basically a baby essential. We used a pack and play for both our babies when they were new and slept in our room, and these things have basically been all over the world with us. Ok, not quite. But they have done a tonne of traveling. This will give Baby her own safe sleeping place when not at home in her crib. Perfect size for setting up in a small, dark room (such as walk out closet or bathroom) when traveling.
We have this swing, and it’s worked great for our 2 babies. This one runs on batteries AND electricity thankfully, because we would have spent a fortune buying batteries! This swing both lays down like a cradle (good for newborns) and sits up (once Baby starts to push up on hands and knees, he’ll want to sit up so he can see out).
Nigh time diapers- a secret gem to sleep. I recommend using overnight diapers in a size up to prevent unnecessary diaper changes in the middle of the night.
Video monitors are a great tool to use with your child's sleep. Not only does it give YOU the piece of mind that your child is okay and doesn't have an arm stuck in the crib slats, but you can also see if your child is awake and laying there quietly or actually still sleeping. My oldest daughter use to school me everyday by laying there in silence when I thought she was napping.
