Everyone should have one, really!
June 28, 2012
I received the product, "Mr. Seahorse" as he's known in our household, as a baby shower gift from my best friend. We got it out and gave it to our 2 week old when he started having trouble sleeping from GERD. Nothing could calm or soothe him and he slept horribly, until the Miracle Seahorse came along. It didn't matter if we were at home, in the car, at a restaurant or at a friend's house, my son would fall asleep quickly and soundly with his seahorse. Far before he should've been able to, my son would reach out and cuddle the seahorse, stroke his belly, nibble on his fins, and hug him. Cutest thing ever! My son is 18 months old now, and Mr. Seahorse has been all over the country, had baths, been thrown thousands of times, chewed on, and spilled on. Despite all of that, he goes everywhere my son goes, and my son has him for every nap and nighttime. The best thing about this product? No matter what phase of sleeping my son has gone through (teething, separation anxiety, sick, testing boundaries, etc.) the seahorse has ALWAYS helped him sleep better and longer. If he wakes up in the middle of the night, he will turn Mr. Seahorse back on and soothe himself back to sleep 9 times out of 10. That's pretty impressive if you ask me. Also just a note to all parents out there- Seahorse says DON'T WASH, but you CAN WASH him. Take out his electronic parts, fasten his velcro closed and wash him on a gentle cycle with other baby clothes on a COLD/COLD cycle. Let him air dry, and he's good as new! We've washed him -many- times with excellent results. For speedier drying, you can stick a hanger inside him and prop him in front of a fan, or stuff him with dry rags or towels- this will also help him keep his shape. Sadly, we did have to replace Mr. Seahorse just two weeks ago, but the fact that he survived that long is incredibly impressive with a toddler who loves to throw anything and everything as far and as hard as possible. I will be buying this product for everyone I know who gets pregnant, it's that fantastic!
