Groovy Babies reviews Lulla Doll

[x_video_embed type=”16:9″][/x_video_embed]

Groovy Babies has recently reviewed Lulla doll!

Lulla imitates closeness with its soft natural touch and by playing a real-life recording of the breathing and heartbeat of a mother at rest. The doll’s  aim is to help babies stabilize their own breathing and heartbeat, resulting in longer and better quality sleep as well as added security.

There can be many reasons and situations when it is simply not possible for parents to keep their little ones close. Some babies take frequent naps, go to sleep early in the evening and it´s not safe for some people to co-sleep with their babies. There are also more serious reasons like illness and hospitalization of parents and babies, and last but not least, sometimes we just need a little break and a good nights sleep.

I find some mums don’t want to cosleep but want the baby to benefit from the heartbeat and breathing as they know biologically this is how a baby regulates.

The Lulla doll imitates closeness with its soft touch and soothing sounds, so when parents have to be away for whatever reason, their babies can still experience the positive benefits of closeness.

Lulla’s 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.

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.


Looking forward to seeing how she helps my clients 🙂

    Hi and thanks so much for your review. have a nine, nearly ten no babe who currently uses white noise app on iPad, which goes allnight 7pm – 7am. She still wakes 1-2 times which the earlier waking can be resettled with hand on back or self soothes back to sleep (around 12) but the next waking (Btwn 4 and 5am) I still feed her.

    She’s still n our room, but think we’re waking her up when we move about in bed. Soon to move to her own room.

    Use white noise app during day also to block out mr 4yr old down stairs!

    My question is, is it working backward to start now with a Lulla doll that goes for only 8 hours? When she’s used to it continuously?

    We are keen to move away from iPad due to the wifi, even though we have it on aeroplane mode.. Be interested to hear your thoughts.

      Hi Tia,

      white noise works differently than the lulla doll in cocooning the environment away from outside noises such as siblings. Lulla is all about the safety and security of turning on a buba calming reflex. So i would recommend using both. To get a actual white noise machine instead of using the wifi works best long term.

    Hi Jennie,

    We are seeing success with sensory issues, but it does depend on the sensory issue of your child. Many children, seem to love the soft material, and the breathing sound. Some mums had had to remove the sound box, out of the bed and place it either under a pillow or near by. Other mums have found if they dress Lulla in appropriate clothes then this helps as well. Hope that helps, happy to chat more
