At Cabeau, we feel strongly that there’s more to developing great comfort travel products than making profits. Case in point: After a blogger on “That Bald Chick” brought home her newborn following 2 weeks in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), she discovered her baby couldn’t get to sleep in a darkened room. Once she and her fiancé turned on a nightlight, their baby slept, well, like a baby. However, the constant light kept the tired mom awake. The solution? Our Midnight Magic® Sleep Mask! “When Cabeau states they guarantee 100% blackout, they truly mean it,” she writes, and she and her new baby are now both getting the sleep they need—which makes all of us at Cabeau very, very happy. Check out this mom’s amazing story, in her own words:
“With the constant hustle and bustle in life, getting an adequate amount of sleep is more important than ever. If you are anything like me I can’t rest unless it is dark, really dark!! Our bedroom has always been an easy place for me to fall asleep in until recently. After bringing our Little Dude home following his two week stay in the NICU the first couple of nights we could not get him to sleep, he would become extremely fussy once in our room. After the second very sleep-deprived night of being home, my fiancé and I remembered something our nurses had warned us about….some babies in the NICU get very used to the constant noise (other babies crying, alarms going off etc..) and the lights always being on. At this point we began to wonder is he simply not sleeping because it is so dark and quiet? That night we decided to use a nightlight, which happens to be right beside my side of the bed close to his bassinet, and to our amazement Little Dude actually slept…and has continued to sleep as long as a nightlight is on! Of course we were excited that he was finally sleeping well; but, now I find myself sleeping with an arm over my eyes or my extra pillowcase fabric draped over my face to obtain some semblance of darkness so I can sleep! When the opportunity arose to review the Cabeau Midnight Magic® Sleep Mask, I could not resist!

I decided to try out the sleep mask the first night it arrived, I have never used a mask before so I was unsure of what to expect. Right off the bat I loved how soft the mask was! The adjustable strap is great, I still had a fair amount of space even with it at its tightest. Even though the mask contains an elastic-free adjustable strap, I will admit I was quite worried that I would wake up during the night finding my hair stuck seeing that I have long, extremely thick hair; but, I am happy to report no such thing happened! The mask was actually comfortable to wear too!
When Cabeau states they guarantee 100% blackout, they truly mean it; you can even adjust the nose bridge of the mask if you would like some amount of light in! It even comes with a pair of memory foam earplugs along with a small pocket to store them, I have tried them on and they are very comfortable; but I have not had a need to use them otherwise. I will say the first two nights it was so great to actually sleep between nursing sessions that I would not have been able to come up with a single downfall! After wearing the mask for more than a week now, my only slight complaint is that it can become slightly warm at times.
Overall, the Cabeau Midnight Magic® Sleep Mask is truly a great product to give a try! You can purchase your own for the SRP $19.99 at /products/midnight-magic-sleep-mask. They offer many other products as well;
one being the Compact and Inflatable Air Evolution Travel Pillow that I can’t wait to try out this weekend while we are on a road trip!”
