Ewan the Dream Sheep™ is a new sleep aid from Easidream for babies and young children. This cute little character attaches to a cot, moses basket, pushchair or car seat using his Velcro tail and emits soothing sounds at a low base frequency whilst giving off a calming pink glow. The combination of calming sounds and glowing light help settle your baby into a peaceful sleep making Ewan a lovely night-time companion for little ones.
Ewan the Dream Sheep has 4 different calming soundtracks to choose from including the sound of rain falling, harp recordings, a vacuum cleaner and a womb sequence. Parents were asked to trial a selection of sounds at home to find out which ones worked best with their baby and from these results, the top 4 most popular sounds were chosen to be used in Ewan the Dream Sheep. The heartbeat and womb sounds are actual recordings of a pregnant mum, not computer generated and these really do have a calming effect.
The other ingredient in the mix is the soothing pink glow which Ewan emits at night time. Research has shown that babies are comforted by certain aspects of the womb, so a pink ambient glow was the natural choice for Ewan's tummy.
Ewan the Dream Sheep Sleep Aid:
4 soothing sounds designed to help baby sleep and chosen based on feedback from parents
Soothing pink glow which mimics the womb environment and helps comfort baby to sleep
Hangs from the cot using the Velcro tail
Features 20 minute timer and volume controls
Ewan the Dream Sheep was recently awarded the title of Gift of the Year for Kids 2011

Great buy, well worth it. Only been using Ewen for 3 days and he is a great aid to getting my 11week old to sleep. He is more cuddly compared to some others on the Market. The sounds mixed with heartbeats is a good combination with rain being our favourite. So glad we brought this as I can leave my daughter to settle herself rather than me having to sit with her.
Really lovely and gentle

My little five week old was not sure at first. I think she was a bit unsure about the big purple face but now she just stares at it and the red glow, yawns and almost instantly falls asleep. The music choices are really good as well. She favours the rain and the harp. The sheep itself is really well made, very soft with big features.
I thought at first, I had wasted my money with this but now I realise that it was money well spent!
Night time comfort

My mum bought Ewan at the baby show before our little boy was born. It has been a joy as every night since he came home he has had Ewan with him when he goes down at night. We use it as a night time sleep trigger and we have only had one night when he has not settled himself! During the day it is impossible to get him to sleep but at night with Ewan "beatingsinging" away he nods off himself. May not work with every baby but a joy for us.
