How it works
It comes a time in every infant’s life when it needs to get a good night sleep in its own baby crib. Transitioning from co-sleeping with parents can be a very scary experience for our little ones so products that help them stay calm and distracted from the thought of being alone are truly a lifesaver. Adults need to get up early in the morning for their regular job which is why there are many toys on the market that comfort and nurture your children while you are getting your well-deserved rest.
We’ve seen many mesmerizing toys on the market that will enchant the most sensitive members of the family by providing a visual and sonic experience with its multiple electronic components. It can be quite hard to make the right decision since we are constantly bombed with versatile baby products however there is one that makes it an obvious choice with its adorable design. Meet the Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother. Even the name sounds relaxing since we all love secretly dream about being surrounded by the sound and smell of the soothing sea waves.
The Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother comes with 3 different main components. It is equipped with the main unit, a remote, and a crib attachment. You can actually leave the attachment on the crib and remove the unit since the monitor is meant to be mobile. The main unit requires 4 C batteries while the remote needs only 2 AAA batteries to function. On the top of the white base, you will notice an orange button which allows you to choose from 2 different volumes so you can adjust the sound. There is another button just like it on the right side of the base so you can explore the 4 different melodies and sea sounds.
The base is white with adorable little sea animals that move once the toy is turned on. The main characters sticking out in this baby sea world are a cute green sea turtle floating in the middle, a blue octopus, an adorable clownfish and a smiling red crab at the sand bottom. The background scenario is colored as an enchanting underwater environment with several sea plants and tiny little fishes carelessly drifting in the water. The surrounding blue frame is decorated with multiple bubbles and a starfish switch. It almost seems as if it’s a mini TV that plays ocean themed visuals with captivating background noises.
Psychologists even recommend playing these sounds while the baby is still in the womb since it can feel the soothing atmosphere and feel more connected to the mother. The whole design is meant to relax your newborn by providing a safe comfort zone when its parents are not around and fall asleep easier when placed in the baby bed. The crib light fades in and out so it won’t disturb your baby’s sleep with unexpected brightness, which is very convenient so parents can have their fair share of uninterrupted sleep as well.
Ease of Use
There is a tiny green button that allows for the base to be quickly released from the holding mechanism within a second, just by clicking the latch and sliding it straight out of the crib. This is undeniably helpful in case you want to change the batteries or take the soother with you on the go. Having a remote device is also very convenient since you can monitor the toy from afar and it is adorably designed so even children can press it and enjoy the soothing benefits. In fact, the whole product is meant to be easily comprehended by toddlers so they can self-soothe once they are old enough to practice their motor skills.
After 10 minutes, the light will go off while the music will continue, after 20 minutes the volume of the music will reduce so about 25 minutes later the product will go into standby mode. If the toy turns off and the baby isn’t sleepy yet, they can press the starfish on the side and play with the toy over and over again. You can also easily turn it on without approaching the crib by using the remote since children can sometimes sense the presence of their parents and wake up expecting to be nurtured. By using a remote control system, you can control the whole unit without disturbing your infant with just a click of a button. It is also quite amusing for children to observe these colorful animals drifting around their sleeping area. They will gaze at it with amazement until they finally fall asleep.
The different modes make sure you are equipped with multiple scenarios so your child doesn’t get easily bored with the predictable nature of the toy even when it grows as a toddler. Moreover, by allowing children to push the buttons by themselves, they can self-entertain in case they wake up before their parents. In fact, many toddlers are eager to reach the knobs by themselves and will practice moving their arms and using the legs in order to fulfill their quest and say hello to their little sea pets.
It is a very charming toy since it looks like a crossover of a TV and an aquarium with adorable sea animals that move gracefully in their natural habitat. Many parents play calming videos for their babies on their tablets, however, this kind of technology can be too much for the infant’s sensitive eyes and it can damage their sight if they spend a lot of time in front of the screen.
Therefore, it is always better to purchase products that are specially adapted to your fragile little bean so it can grow in a healthy and peaceful environment. Having a Sea Dreams Soother is granting your child its first aquarium without worrying about the maintenance that comes along with it. Forget about the mess and stress and embark on an enchanting sea adventure in your own bedroom.
