For those children who are slightly older, there are `pink noise' sequences - similar to white noise, but more effective with babies, combined with the heartbeat recording.
Vacuum cleaner, rain and harp recordings together with the womb sequence provide 4 different calming sound tracks to choose from.
The sounds were trialed on 30 different babies to find the most effective ones and these were then included in our final ewan™ the dream sheep. He seems to be going down a treat and is even calming older children too… up to age 7yrs so far!
Ewan the dream sheep can be used at home - cot, moses basket etc and also when out and about too, as 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. He's so versatile, ewan™ the dream sheep really is no ordinary sheep!

works for my baby
Bought this whilst pregnant Used since birth - baby is now 3 months Really calms her down and sends her to sleep
I bought Ewan for my 10 month old, unsure if it would help him sleep during nap time or not as he was no longer a little baby, I wasn't sure if it would work or not. I can't say for sure if Ewan helped as for the first few weeks using him my baby still wouldn't settle in his cot for a nap, however, we continued putting Ewan on at night, by this point my baby could put himself to sleep anyway but Ewan plays comforting noises and certainly didn't hinder baby going to sleep. A few weeks later baby started napping in cot, and whether Ewan helps or not he definitely doesn't hinder sleep for my baby. Now at 1 year, he is starting to show a real love for Ewan and pulls him down from his hanging place to cuddle him in his cot, very sweet! If you're unsure whether to buy Ewan - I was and it took 10 months to invest - do it, I wish I had earlier. He's small enough to take on holiday with you as well and when you are sleep deprived Ewan is so worth a try. Even if he doesn't help immediately like in our case, he is slowly becoming a favourite comforter at nap and bed time so worth the money in the long run.
New baby? Buy Ewan!
Excellent. I looked at these before our daughter was born and got one when she was a week or so old on the recommendation of a friend. I'm sure it does help babies (and parents!) sleep just because of the white noise but now she's a few months old I'm using it as part of her bedtime routine - here's the dreamsheep, its time for bed! Using the light function really does reduce the battery life though.
Amazing - one of the best baby products ever
I bought this when my daughter was 18mths old and it has worked marvellously for her. She enjoyed cuddling it and changing the noises but now at 4.5yrs goes to sleep with the music. I have since bought one for my little boy and he also adores his and will turn it on himself if I forget. They are well worth the money.
not a sure thing!!
Beware, all babies are different... the sounds seem perfectly nice. In the first few weeks, the heartbeat was good to encourage baby to self soothe at night (also put me to sleep too!). we use the lullaby as background music for the bedtime feed BUT the white noise is simply not loud enough to soothe my baby boy (baby #2). Even on high, the volume is not enough for the baby to hear it over his loud cries. So sadly, I've given up trying to use him for sleeping per se. The toy seems of good quality and my toddler likes to press each hoof. Remember that white noise apps are readily available for smartphones (many for free!). He would make a lovely gift though and he is very cute.
The best birth present you could buy.
When you don't have children of your own its nerve racking trying to buy a present for a new born that will be both appropriate and appreciated. My best friend's daughter and daughter-in-law gave birth within 10 days of each other in March this year and I bought them each a Ewan the Sheep for their baby girls. I can report that Ewan is a real hit with both babies and their parents, never failing to induce sleep - Ewan is so popular, Grandma is jealous that I found him instead of her!
