Sleep Diary | Week Two | #TeamSleepSheep

Week one recap
Following my diary entry last week, I just wanted to give you a little update from last week. If you didn't read the post you can find it here. To my surprise Emily has been sleeping from 8 till 8! It has been such a shock to go from her waking up during the night, and screaming when we put her down to sleep. It has been so nice to be able to spend the time in the evening with Sam, I feel like we missed out on each other but now it feels like we have time for each other again. Thank you barney blackout! I'm just looking into getting some for my room now. 

 Dunelm are the UK's No.1 home ware retailer, they are currently running the disruptive campaign featuring the Dunelm sleep experts, The #TeamSleepSheep - These are four sheep characters who aim to help the nation get a better night's sleep. Aunty Ali, Rory Foam, Theo Thermal, and Barney Blackout Visit you in the twilight if you aren't getting your best nights sleep to give you some much needed advise. This way when you wake up in the morning, you'll know what to do and head to your Dunelm store. If you haven't seen the adverts you can take a look here. You can also follow there updates on Twitter.


I fell in love with the gorgeous design of the up and away bedding collection, When I saw it I just knew it would look perfect in Emily's bedroom. Dunelm kindly sent Emily the black out curtains, you can see the post here, and also the matching bedding. The quality of the material is amazing, it is soft and feels very comfortable. It also looks so cute, and I love the fact that Emily has a matching set now. 

We brought the little sleepers cot bed duvet to go with the bedding set. I know that this bedding comes with a age warning of 12+ months, but Emily is used to the duvet in our bed because she used to co-sleep. She really wasn't settling in her own room, I tried sleep bags, and even a coverlet. She wasn't having any of it. So this seemed to be the next best thing. I tuck majority of it under her mattress at the bottom. The little sleepers duvet has the British Allergy Foundation seal of approval.  The polycotton duvet cover will reduce common allergic reactions and repels dust mites. This will make for a cleaner, fresher bedding. This duvet is the perfect tog at 4.0, It will keep your child warm without being too thick. It is also the perfect duvet to accompany the bedding set. Emily absolutely loves cuddling into it at night. 


Since having the bedding set she has slept so much better. She loves her black out curtains, and the early morning wake up calls are no longer a problem, which is a relief. The bedding has really helped because she loves holding onto the duvet when she sleeps. Emily has always had a pillow due to her reflux she needs to be slightly elevated, and can't sleep without it. As you can tell from the top picture, she loves sitting on the bed playing with the house pattern. She traces around the house design with her fingers, and she seems to find it funny. I would definitely recommend the up and away set, we are buying the little house rug for Emily to go in her bedroom.

  2. Sounds like she is doing great! Noah is 17 months and still uses a grobag but that's because he is terribly wriggly and is always kicking covers off. I'm dreading having to switch to a duvet! Eeek.

    1. Thank you, although it is a big adjustment, she is doing so well! We tried using a grow bag but Emily hated it, she screamed constantly, and I got a little stressed out with the zips because she would wiggle so much! Hope your transition goes smoothly. Thanks for stopping by! x
