The Lulla dolls unique design is based on multiple scientific research on closeness.
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.
This from the creator of Lulla Doll: Hear– 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. Look– Babies prefer to look at something that resembles a human face. The colors of the doll were chosen for the purpose of making the doll unisex and unirace. Touch– The outer layer is made from soft natural cotton. The filling is made from ultra fine microfiber that is hypoallergenic. Smell– 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. Clean and safe– The doll is machine washable in warm water making it safer for small babies with underdeveloped immune and respiratory systems. PLEASE NOTE! The Lulla Doll comes with batteries for Demo purposes only, please change as soon as possible. Hold Lulla’s on/off button down for 3 seconds continuously to activate. This is a feature which has been built in to stop accidental turn offs when your child rolls onto Lulla. There is a strap in Lulla’s battery pack to allow her to be secured to the cot when baby is very young. 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. The rechargeable battery life is approx 56 hours – 60 hours (7 days of 8 hours per day). We have found Eneloop and Energiser to be the best performing rechargeable batteries. Good quality alkaline batteries such as Duracell Gold, Ever Ready Gold or Energiser Plus may play up to 100 hours. A cheaper version which when tested also produced good results was the Sonixcell from the Warehouse. Please do not use Lithium batteries with any of our battery operated products including Lulla and the Baby Shusher. By doing so you will void your warranty. Use good quality rechargeable or alkaline batteries.
