Lulla doll is literally saving lives and I think every little one should have one!

I have fallen in love with these Lulla Dolls – they are literally saving little lives!

They were born in Iceland from the desire to help babies on the SCBU unit to cope with separation from their parents who have to leave their child at 10pm and can’t return until 10am – so many of these little babies have showed signs of failing during these hours because they don’t get the closeness from their parents that they literally need to survive. It’s a heartbreaking thought, and that is just for me. I can’t comprehend what these mothers (and fathers) have to go through knowing they are leaving their new baby in a vulnerable position alone.

So the brilliant Eyrún, founder and creator of Lulla Doll and Rórócare, designed this wonderful little doll for her friend whose baby was in SCBU, and I am so thankful she did!

Lulla plays a real life recording of breathing and the heartbeat of a mother at rest, which has shown to help baby fall into a deep and restful sleep. What is really unique about the Lulla doll is that the recording will play for 8 hours before it switches off, unlike most products that will play for 15 – 30 mins. This aids sleep and helps to encourage your baby for longer – which I know you’re a fan off before I tell you that it reduces the risk of SIDs and increases general wellbeing.

Unisex and unirace - take note manufacturers, we need to see more of this!

The Lulla has been so well thought out, it is unisex and unirace – something I can’t harp on about enough. I have never been a fan of gender specific dolls, but it is so race to see something unirace – it needs to be a growing trend on the market. The out layer of Lulla is soft natural cotton and the filling is hypoallergenic, plus the fabric of the doll has been designed to absorb Mama’s smell to promote a sense of wellbeing for the baby.

Lulla can be machine washed too… yep, there is no end to the benefits of this doll. Really. Simply put, if I have any more little ones, I will be straight onto the Lulla bandwagon!

P.s – Lulla isn’t available for market retail yet, but it will be by the end of the year, so keep checking the Rórócare Facebook page for information.

    If anyone is looking for these in the UK, they are available for pre-order at The General Baby Store (it’s in Farnham, but they’ll ship anywhere)!
