Review: Flutterbye Dreams Lullabye Birdies Soother
Written on May 4, 2006 by Kevin.
What can I say about this soother? It has been a huge help since Rylan was born. It's a fact that new parents are going to buy items that the child does not play with or get use out of. On the flip side, there are toys that the child likes so much that you end up spending a small fortune on batteries.
The Flutterbye Dreams Lullabye Birdies Soother has worked out great for us. Every night since Rylan was born, we put him in his crib and turn on the soother. At first, he didn't pay much attention to it but I wanted to condition him to hearing the noise and associating it with sleep so we continued to use it. Slowly, he began to focus on it more and now he really seems to enjoy it. Every night, we continue to put him down and turn on the soother and it really seems to do the job. He sucks his thumb while watching the birds spin around while he falls asleep.
We have been lucky with Rylan in the fact that he has been a great sleeper for us. While I cannot guarantee that this was because of the soother, I can say that it certainly seems to help.
The Flutterbye Dreams Lullabye Birdies Soother uses 4 D batteries. I believe we have needed to swap the batteries twice now in 6+ months. The soother includes a mode in which it projects bird images onto the ceiling. We do not use this mode as it eats up batteries quickly.
This is definitely a product I would recommend and give to someone as a gift. It has certainly worked out great for us.
