3rd Generation Lulla Doll
This Lulla Doll has some very exciting changes that really are a game changer to this already world first award winning comforter and sleep aid for children.

Still machine washable – still a sleep miracle.
The Lulla doll is a sleep companion for preemies, babies and toddlers. It imitates closeness to a caregiver at rest with its soft feel and real life sounds of breathing and heartbeat.
Lulla plays her soothing sounds for up to 12 hours to help your little one feel stable and safe and adding to the length and quality of sleep.
Lulla’s unique design is based on scientific research that shows how closeness improves sleep, well-being and safety.
The doll is machine washable and comes with 2 AA batteries.
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 aim of Lulla Doll is to help babies
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.
How it works...
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.
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.
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.
Background to 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 doll is machine washable in warm water making it safer for small babies with underdeveloped immune and respiratory systems.
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 AA 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 (7 days of 8 hours per day).
Good quality alkaline batteries such as Duracell Gold, Ever Ready Gold or Energiser Plus may play up to 100 hours.
Please do not use Lithium batteries with the Lulla doll by doing so you will void your warranty. Use good quality rechargeable or alkaline batteries.
Reviews from New Zealand & Australia
“I just wanted to say how amazing the lulla doll is and it actually works! My 20 month old has slept through the night a hand full of times and always without fail wakes up . We got the doll yesterday and immediately she loved it took to bed went straight to sleep which never happens and actually slept through the entire night with not a peep! I can’t believe it . Best money I have ever spent thank you

“Cooper (4 year old) loves it. He came in at 6am and said that his doll kept him safe, he woke up twice overnight but didn’t need to come and get us because it was like we were with him and he just snuggled his doll. WINNING!!!”
“The last 3 nights Amelia has only woken once and that was for a drink then went back to sleep, plus she is also sick with a cold ..what an amazing doll Lulla is”
“We received the lulla doll. I cannot thank you enough. It’s amazing my one year old went from waking every 40 mins to last night sleeping through. I feel like a human again. She basically sleeps on top of the doll and it’s working. So again my sanity thank you”
“Day 3 of using Lulla, and I must say I am very impressed. Amazing quality, so soft and my daughter Paige who is 9 months old has taken to her very well. She has always been a good sleeper and goes down awake. What I have found is that if she stirs a little or has a little cry, she settles and goes back to sleep and is sleeping for long periods during the day, whereas before she would wake straight up after a stir or cry. Even with her three older noisy sisters she is sleeping through.”
“She usually takes much longer than under 2 mins to drop off! We’ve had continued success today I cannot rate lulla enough. My one year old was waking every 40 mins even with Co sleeping and I was at my wits end and crippled with exhaustion. I purchased Lulla as a last resort thinking that we had absolutely no hope. On the first night in her cot she woke twice and the second and third night we had a baby that slept through the night. I feel like a human again thank you so much for bringing this into my life.”
“Just thought I would share my bub’s first nap with Lulla, which is happening as I type this! She went down a little whiny but quickly settled and snuggled in (and I keep checking to make sure she’s not too close!). Our eventual goal is to move from co sleeping at night to the bassinet (she refuses to sleep with anyone but me at night!) Thanks a lot for the quick postage and excellent service, if this is a huge success I may need to buy a backup in case something happens to this one! She went to sleep in her cot with lulla, stayed asleep while I put her in the car, slept in the car, slept the while way through a crazy loud soccer lesson in a hall and slept soundly the whole way home from soccer. That has NEVER happened!”
