One of my favourite, if not my number one, art pieces of all times is A Starry Night by impressionism visionary, Vincent Van Gogh.
There has always been something about the night sky filled with gleaming and twinkling stars that bring a sense of tranquility and peace.
Since I was a child, I remember my mom telling me that the stars were all our wishes being held by angels and every time it twinkled, it meant the wish was being granted.
Even as an adult, I can’t help but believe it when I see a twinkling star. 🙂
It’s nice to hold on to sweet memories and feelings that make your heart happy.
I know for most children, the sight of the stars always makes them feel calm and relaxed. And in most cases, lulls them to sleep!
Whenever we are sleeping somewhere else, like at the cottage or at a hotel, my kids have a hard time falling asleep. My daughter is not a fan of the dark and always requires a night light.
I remember we use to own the cutest Cloud b Twilight Turtle for my son when he was a smaller and sadly lost it during a trip. It was the best!
I now recently discovered Cloud b’s newest cute item to their sleep aid collection, Dream Buddies, which has proven very helpful when bedtime comes around for both my children, ages 7 and 3!
Dream Buddies are compact, ultra-plush pals that help ease children’s fear of the dark by projecting a starry night sky onto ceilings and walls. From blue to green to amber, the slowly morphing colours will mesmerize your little ones and lull them into deep, sweet sleep. Dream Buddies are the perfect calming companions that your tiny tots can tote with them wherever they go. With multiple characters to choose from, your little ones can collect them all!

By simply pressing on their hand, the stars begin to illuminate, changing colours automatically, and this lasts up to 45 minutes before it turns off on its own.
I just love that they include the batteries in the already which is a plus!
