The Lulla Doll

The Lulla Doll is designed by a Mother of two from Iceland.   Knowing she had success in getting her children to sleep better in her arms, she started developing the Lulla Doll to give her a break and a rest.

In the development of the Lulla Doll, several advisers in nursing and medicine took part in creating the doll as it is today. In these stages the Lulla Doll was tested at the NICU at the Icelandic National hospital by parents of prematures and newborns. Parents were given dolls for their children to have at the hospital and at home. After a few weeks they were asked how they felt it made a change both for the child and themselves. Their input was crucial for the development.

A medical study on the effects of the Lulla Doll in stabilizing heartbeat and breathing of babies in the NICU is scheduled after the doll comes out of production. The Icelandic National Hospital has been a true partner for us and we are very appreciative of the interest they have taken in this project. The team at the NICU are optimistic the research can show that the doll can have a positive effect on stabilizing newborns. Especially as it is build on previous research that indicate it can have a great effect.

The Lulla Doll‘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.

The Lulla Doll imitates closeness of a caregiver at rest with its soothing sounds of real heartbeat & breathing and soft touch. Lulla’s unique design is based on scientific research that shows how closeness improves sleep, wellbeing and safety.

The aim of Lulla Doll is to help babies:

Sleep longer
Fall asleep more easily & Sleep for longer periods at a time *

Feel better
Experience less negative emotions and crying & Decrease stress levels *

Be safer
Stabilize heartbeat and breathing *

* these are the possible benefits of closeness, heartbeat & breathing sounds and comforters according to multiple research.

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.
