Whoever coined the phrase “sleep like a baby” definitely did not have kids.
If you’ve sound-machined, rocked, and hummed your very last lullaby, it may be time to call in some pals.
Friends of Socktopus to the rescue. The unique owl mobiles are expertly made by a local mom from bits of wool felt and cotton. The birdies, which hang from lacquered rattan, come in four soothing color themes and whimsical patterns. Don’t want to clash with the nursery decor? Custom order one to match the room.
All in the hopes of lulling your little one into a sound sleep.
Without so much as a hoot.
