ewan the dream sheep® emits soothing sounds at a low base frequency and a calming pink warm glow, which when combined, help settle babies and toddlers into a peaceful sleep.
The heartbeat and womb sounds are actual recordings, not computer generated. Paediatric research suggests that these sounds have been proven to have an extrememly calming effect and can help settle babies with COLIC induced pain. Vacuum cleaner, rain and harp recordings together with the womb sequence provide 4 different calming 'pink noise' sound tracks to choose from and all are combined with mum's resting heartbeat to provide extra reassurance. The sounds, which play for 20 minutes, are all recorded at the low base frquency the baby can predominantly hear when in the womb – 125Hz pink noise range – which is why they work so well at settling 'little ones' off to sleep. Better still, all the sounds were trialled on babies and toddlers to find the most effective ones and only then were they included in our final ewan the dream sheep®.
The final ingredient to the mix is the soothing pink glow that is emitted from ewan the dream sheep®… Paediatric research has shown that babies are comforted by certain aspects of the womb, so a pink ambient glow was the natural choice for our dream sheep’s tummy.
