Baby Crack Item #1: Soothe and Glow Seahorse

I figure that it might be worthwhile to some of my readers to chronicle all the items that I consider baby crack. That is, all the items that stop the screaming, crying, shouting, and bring about a peaceful calming environment. *deep breath*
So, the first item is the Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse, or, in our house, Charlie for short. (Charlie Horse- C. Horse, get it? Yeah, I'm lame)
We bought this after reading a few recommendations online from a few people about how their child wouldn't sleep but once they got it, the kid didn't budge. Well, at the time, my daughter was being Fussypants McGhee, and it just so happened that in one of my runs to Target, I saw the seahorse. Miraculously, there seemed to be a halo surrounding it, and I think I may have actually heard angels singing of it's magical prowess. So, at the end of my rope, and thinking to myself, "Ha! I'll prove them wrong," I picked it up. Well, technically I saw it on sale, and just had to buy it because it's little sweet beady eyes were begging me to, but same thing.
Anyway, I'm totally excited to say that it TOTALLY FREAKING works and that they weren't lying online. Holy Hannah! My dear daughter only slept while being held the first few weeks of life. While I wasn't totally opposed to this occurrance, because, hey, she's cute, I did need to lay her down for a bit so I could rest my arms; they're flabby, and un-muscular, and needed a break.

YAY for Baby Crack!


  1. I put one of those on my baby registry because I have heard so many good things about it! It is one thing for sure that I will be buying if I don't get it.

  2. It's a miracle worker. I swear. I hope it works just as well for you!
