Peaceful sleep. What’s that again?!
Being a mom with a 15-month-old toddler, and a very active 4-and-a-half-year-old daughter is hard work – rewarding but busy, so you can imagine that I need all the sleep that I can get.
I mean who needs an alarm clock when I can be woken up by wet sloppy kisses from a toddler looking for milk?
The last thing that I want is my kids’ sleep disturbed. Any mom knows that any child woken up from their sleep is quite grumpy.
I am fortunate that my little man is constantly smiling and can’t be upset for more than 5 minutes, but those 5 minutes from a disturbed sleep may feel like hours – especially when you are just falling off to sleep yourself.
My kids also hate being too warm. Even in winter, I struggle to keep them under the blanket, so summer is another matter.
The trouble with summer is that it also brings its own little troubles – in my house – it’s mainly mosquitoes. Both my children are allergic to these bites and a simple mosquito bite gets so sore and itchy that besides developing a huge bump, they end up with scars from the scratching.
It has been quite an adventure trying to find something that would repel these little mosquitoes – not only because of their irritating whine but also because of the uncomfortable side effects of their bites.
I have tried citronella candles and several weird smelling lotions. Some of them even repelled my kids. 😉
I then discovered the Peaceful Sleep Family Care lotion that is safe to use on babies from 6-months-old. At first, I must admit – I was skeptical because there are so many products like this on the market, products that claim to work but don’t, but now my kids can’t sleep without it.
Peaceful Sleep really does work!
It’s the genuine stuff that the entire family can use. It has a mild smell but is very effective in keeping the mosquitoes away.
I can safely sleep now with peace of mind. I can be assured that my children are not breathing in harmful fumes and that they can get a ‘peaceful nights’ rest which means that I too can now enjoy my much-needed beauty sleep.
