Get a Better Night Sleep With Cloud B Dreamz To Go OctoWednesday, October 29, 2014
Who's afraid of the dark?
At least, not anymore.
I have mostly overcome that fear now that I am thirty-
six -something. But if I am home alone with the kids at night, the dark can be a very scary thing. I seem to harbour some deeply embedded fear that 'bad guys' will break into my home at night with malicious intent. I distinctly recall memories from my childhood of laying perfectly still under the covers at night, peering into the darkness and listening for possible intruders in the middle of the night. I would lay awake for what seemed liked hours just waiting to have the bejeezus scared out of me. And if it wasn't the fear of some stranger lurking in the darkness, then it was that one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people-eater that was surely hiding under my bed ready to pounce as soon as I nodded off.
It's amazing, though, how much more
stupid confident I feel when the lights are turned on and I discover that there really isn't anything to worry about. It's all thanks to something we take for granted every day - light. If light can offer a sense of security to me, a fearless warrior mom, imagine how much reassurance it could give to a baby or young child, especially when sleeping in a new place. With the new Dreamz To Go Octo, both parent and child can enjoy a better night sleep thanks to its soothing light.
From the makers of Nighty Night Owl Smart Sensor, Dream To Go Octo is based on the original Twilight Turtle by Cloud B. It is part of the dreamy lites collection and offers a compact solution for soothing sleep. My favourite part? It runs on 3 AAA batteries (included) which means you can take it with you virtually anywhere you travel. It is lightweight and small so it doesn't take up a lot of space. Octo also has a built-in projector which sprinkles the walls and ceiling with bright stars and friendly little fish blowing bubbles. There are two buttons on the back; one to change the colour between blue, red or green, and another to turn it on, off or to rotate between all three colours. After 45 minutes, it automatically shuts off on its own.
Cloud B Dreamz To Go Octo is currently available at Walmart for $24.77 and you'll be happy to know that a portion of Cloud B sales will be donated to the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.
