E is 7 weeks and is waking about 3 times during the night - which i know is normal at this age but although I put her straight on the boob she only feeds for about 5 minutes then we spend the next half hour or so winding and settling back to sleep so I don't know if she is actually hungry or just unsettled. I would actually prefer it if she didn't sleep through for my peace of mind! but would like to get more than 3 hours sleep in a row occasionally.
So do you think one of the above may help to settle her without waking fully? if so which do you think is best? Thanks xx

Not sure what Ewan the sheep is, but we had the Slumberbear with S. It was fantastic for settling him back off after a feed.

We have a slumber bear but it doesn't seem to make any difference to A at all. He was still waking fully for night feeds, although we were feeding for about 20 minutes at a time.
Although between 8 and 9 weeks he started to only need one feed during the night i.e. we fed at 11pm, went to bed, then fed between 3.30am and 4am, before getting up at 7am.

We had a Slumber Bear with M, which worked a charm.
Another thing I am gutted we got rid of!

We have a ewen sheep and it works well for A. She was grumping in her sleep and trumping from 4.30am, but activating ewen every now amd then kept her from waking properly. We just press either the heartbeat/womb noise or the white noise button when she grumbles and only actually get her out of bed if she properly cries.
We wouldn't be without him :)

N had a slumber bear and it worked a treat. I got it from a nearly new sale.

Slumber Bear here - R still loves hers at 14 months old (otherwise I would pass it on to you Rusty!)

We have a Ewan and definitely helps to settle x

Another one with Ewan and we still use it at 10 months, more now whilst she's having her bedtime bottle as part of her going to bed routine. Can't say it "fixed" E's horrific sleep but I think it helped x

We had a slumber bear & it worked really well for us, I'm guessing it's just the same sound so whichever is easiest to get hold of!

Yep they look pretty similar kk. I have ordered a slumber bear as they are on offer from kiddicare. X
