Lulla was designed in Iceland after many years of scientific research which shows how closeness improves sleep, well being and safety. Playing a real heartbeat and breathing continuously for 8 hours! Lulla’s unique patent pending design was inspired by research on kangaroo care, the effects of heartbeat and breathing sounds, and the effects that smell, sight and touch have on babies and small children.
When the chest is pressed, Lulla plays a real-life recording of the breathing and heartbeat of a mother at rest. Her name is Gudrun, she is a dear friend, a mother of four and a Kundalini yoga teacher.
Babies prefer to look at something that resembles a human face. The colours of the doll were chosen for the purpose of making the doll unisex and unirace.
The outer layer is made from soft natural cotton. The filling is made from ultra fine microfiber that is hypoallergenic.
The fabric of the doll can absorb smell from parents if they first keep it close to their skin before giving it to their child for extra feeling of security.
The doll is machine washable in warm water making it safer for small babies with underdeveloped immune and respiratory systems.
The Lulla doll operates on 2 X AAA batteries and the developers of Lulla highly recommend the use of rechargeable batteries for both environmental and economic reasons.
