Audio Pacifier

Did you know that a stuffed animal could help your baby sleep better? Of course, we're not talking about just any old plush bear. These are called audio pacifiers, and they're like the aural version of those rubber nipples infants love so much. Besides being soft and cute, these stuffed creatures comfort your little one with the sounds of the womb, which, for newborns, can be very reassuring. Many babies have longer, more restful sleeping sessions when listening to an audio pacifier, which is great for Mom and Dad, too.
