Just like every other parent out there, we’ve recently been stuck in a difficult bedtime phase. Joshua struggles to settle at bedtime now and has a new routine of almost drifting off but then call us up several times to ‘tuck him in’. So, when we discovered the wonderful Dream Tent I wondered if it would perhaps get him excited about bedtime again.
The day came when our Dream Tent was delivered and Joshua refused to go to bed until we set it up for him – good sign! I quickly popped it up, which took just seconds. It was so easy to do! The design is really simple; you just slide two hooks underneath each side of the mattress, clip on the two ends of the Dream Tent and it folds into an arch shape. The Dream Tent then covers the top portion of the bed and most of your little one’s body.
As the Dream Tent comes with a little battery-operated light too, we usually cuddle underneath together for his bedtime stories.
Joshua absolutely loves his Dream Tent because it’s space themed – he loves the moon, stars, rockets and space so this was perfect for him. I think the security of the tent works at keeping little one’s calm and relaxed before bedtime and I can honestly say that since we set up the Dream Tent, Joshua has never woken up during the night asking to come into our room! WIN!
Who do I think this would be perfect for? Perhaps little children who are afraid of the dark as it acts like security for them and children who need something to get them excited for sleeping in their own bed (maybe for the first time or if you have had some problems like we have). We have also removed Joshua’s bed guard now because the Dream Tent acts kind of like an alternative to this because of the size of it – this isn’t something that’s recommended by them but something we did ourselves.
Joshua absolutely loves cuddling under his duvet with his teddy bear in the Dream Tent, it’s like his own little hideaway. It’s worked wonders for us and is something that brightens up his room.
What do you think of the Dream Tent?
