BEAUTIFUL MUSIC WITH A PURPOSE
Our Lullabytes Concert soothes your baby to sleep with music specially arranged and performed for wee ears, while tracking sleep patterns with a full-featured diary.
Twelve classical lullabies have been carefully crafted to appeal to babies, and sequenced to wind down in musical energy level. The 25-minute concert opens with Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 11, and ends with a delicate rendition of Brahms’ Lullaby. While drifting off to sleep, your baby is exposed to some of the most beautiful and timeless melodies ever composed.
The concert was arranged and performed by the same team that received four RIAA-certified Gold Albums for its work on the Baby Einstein™ music library.
CONTROL THE AURAL ENVIRONMENT
Many babies sleep best in the presence of constant noise. After all, the womb is an extremely loud place, akin to the sound of someone vacuuming just 10 feet from you at all times!
A collection of eight soundscapes can be added to Lullabytes to mask unwanted background noise and provide a soothing backdrop that helps baby (and you) sleep. Nature sounds include a summer night, soft rain, a babbling brook and rolling surf. White-noise sounds include a clothes dryer, ceiling fan, table fan and vacuum cleaner.
BABIES SLEEP TIGHT WHILE YOU GAIN INSIGHTS
The Sleep Keeper™ might save you a trip into baby’s room in the middle of the night. This feature detects crying, and restarts the soundscape or replays the softest music tracks to help your baby drift back to sleep.
Lullabytes’ Sleep Diary™ works like a stopwatch, recording the duration of overnight sleep and naps, and logging the times for review. You can tag sleep sessions with factors such as teething or illness, and manually add or edit diary entries. The diary also compares your baby’s total sleep with the recommended daily amount for babies of comparable age. Sleep sessions are presented in easy-to-read charts you can share.
