Magic Mitten Competition

Pray tell what is this about a Magic Mitten, I admit I had never heard of it before but now I have I wish it had been around when my two boys had been babies.  It’s no wonder really with a blog titled Missing Sleep I would have been grateful for just about anything to try and help the dreadful sleep deprivation that I endured for years!

At various points my babies thought it was great to wake up for the day at 1am and stay awake… all day!  Like little Duracell babies, with a never ending supply of energy whilst mummy was lethargic and outright exhausted!

Naps in the day were always a little tricky too, not always guaranteed and took a fair bit of practise to get the pair off to sleep.  Sometimes I swear I put more effort into coaxing sleep than they actually then slept for (a power nap of 10 minutes was very common!).

The Magic Mitten is a handheld baby calming device, when you have a little one you do quickly learn to treasure those quieter moments, with a little one nestled in your arms drifting off into sleep.  But achieving that can be a lot harder than you think, the poor loves have colic to deal with, restlessness, windy tummies, constipation… holding this device to your babies ear they hear the soothing sounds of either the mother’s heartbeat, ocean waves or rain on a tin roof.  I get the first two sounds not entirely sure of the third, but then as an adult who has stayed in a caravan in the rain keeping me up that’s why I am a little dubious, but I am not a baby and they have realised they seem to love white noise so this product has been created to perfectly capture that in a safe patented device developed by a father.
As parents you may have concerns holding a device so close to your child, but these are clearly addressed, the product automatically turns off after 10 minutes, the cushioned pad helps with sound diffusion, a safe level of sound with a fixed volume.  So as a parent I would have been happy for my two to use this device, I might have been a more relaxed mummy!


The Magic Mitten is now available in the UK and is available for £39.99 from www.jojomamanbebe.co.uk as well as a number of carefully selected retailers.

Fortunately been offered TWO of these genius products to giveaway, so if you would like to enter and hopefully see an end to your sleep woe’s then please kindly fill in the rafflecopter below by the 28th of September.

  11. Thanks for the review. This sounds wonderful. Lara has nights when she wakes every half hour. People tell us that she'll grow out of this phase. Meanwhile a Magic Mitten could be a sanity saver!

    Why can't you give more of a challenge? Leaving a nice comment about your blog is too easy really as it is a really good place to visit and the product speaks for itself, anything that genuinely helps calm a baby gets top marks from any parent.
