Being a new mom and coming home exhausted meant that I often had a hard time putting my daughter to sleep each night. I knew that I had to get creative on how to put her down so that both of us could get enough sleep.
A friend at work said Ewan the Dream Sheep had really helped with bedtime for her little one. After the recommendation, I decided to buy Ewan and put him to the test.

What I Don’t Like
- When used heavily Ewan’s batteries don’t last very long.
- Ewan isn’t machine washable if he gets dirty.
- Unfortunately, Ewan has limited volume control
Ewan the dream sheep comes with 4 different sound settings so that you can select the one that works best for your baby. Besides soothing your young one, the pink glow also acts as a nightlight. However, you should know that you can’t clean it with your washing machine because of its electronic interior.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Baby Sound Machine
Plenty of parents turn to baby sound machines to help soothe their babies. In the womb, sounds from the outside would have been muffled. A soft, continuous sound is similar to the noise a baby would have been used to in the womb. Baby sound machines or sleep soothers replicate these noises which comfort your little one and helps them fall asleep.
Baby noise machines usually feature with a number of sounds. Some options include babbling brooks, white noise or a pulsating noise similar to mum’s heartbeat Each child is unique, which means that each child reacts to different sounds differently. As such, it’s a good idea to get a sleep soother that features several sound options.
Some baby soothers have volume controls that allow you to control the volume to suit different environments and sleep patterns. This can help match the volume of the sleep soother to the background noise in your nursery.
The power options
Baby soothers feature different power options. There are those that use batteries while others come with a cord. A soother that uses batteries may prove more convenient because you can place it anywhere in the room. However, the batteries have a life-span and you will eventually have to replace them.
Presenting the Ewan the Dream Sheep
If you have been looking for a way to help your baby gently drift off to sleep, then Ewan the Dream Sheep review is meant for you. Although there are plenty of sleep soothers available, I believe that Ewan the Dream Sheep is among the best.

Features and Benefits
When activated through a button in one of his paws Ewan will glow and produce sounds for up to 20 minutes. One of Ewan’s best features is that he plays actual heartbeat and womb sound combinations. Imitating the sounds the baby hears inside the womb. When playing this heartbeat noise Ewan also emits a calming pink glow from his chest. This replicates the light a baby would be exposed to in the womb. We found that this noise was what really settled baby E the most.
Ewan the Dream Sheep is very portable. Ewan needs three AAA batteries as a power source so you aren’t tied to mains electricity. You use Ewan in a car seat or a stroller. Ewan can go wherever you go. Ewan also has a velcro hook tail. We used the velcro hook to attach Ewan to little E’s crib and stroller when we went out.
Interestingly, this baby soother is quite versatile. You can attach a pacifier to keep your baby calmer. It can also be used by toddlers and pre-school kids. Moreover, it has 4 sound options (womb sounds, harp melody, vacuum cleaner or rainfall) to allow you to set the one that suits your baby or toddler best.

Virtually all of the positive reviews claimed that Ewan really helped with calming their little ones and getting them off to sleep. Reading through the positive reviews, Ewan seems to work for babies from newborn through to large toddlers.
Of the small number of negative reviews, some complained that there was limited volume control. The noise Ewan made can only be set to loud or quiet. Also, Ewan Doesn’t really have an on/off button, just little buttons on its paws, although you can hold them down to turn Ewan off. Others pointed out that the sound and glow only run for twenty minutes which wasn’t always long enough for thier child.
One of the most common negative points is how long the batteries last in Ewan. When Ewan is used heavily some of the reviews claimed the batteries only last a few days to a few weeks. Also, the batteries aren’t the easiest to change due to the design of the container. Investing in a few
