At the start, we asked ourselves this question, which morphed into, "What sounds are they hearing and feeling during a car ride?" Our answers were similar to the sounds and sensations they experience in the womb:
Beyond sound, newborns, infants and toddlers are most attuned to the sense of touch. The actual sense of touch is the key factor; if we could produce low-frequency sounds and rumbles, we knew we could recreate touch, which would give the newborn the sense of security and comfort they experienced in the womb.
New Video Animation, Uncle Mike & The Birth of Lullafi
We put together a fun, short animated story that features Uncle Mike on a quest to help his newborn nephew get a good night's sleep. Watch now to discover the story behind Lullafi, and how a little bit of engineering, a dash of magic and the right touch created a Sound Sleep Solution.
Lullafi is a different kind of speaker compared to anything else on the market. We built Lullafi in such a way that it literally turns a baby cradle, crib, or carrier into a vibrating nest. The sounds are so low that parents may not even hear them, but their baby will absolutely feel them!
Lullafi In The Wild
To give you an idea of how quickly and easily Lullafi works to calm a baby, we asked a few parents of newborns to try the Lullafi prototype with their fussy babies. In this first video of Lullafi in Real Life, you'll notice how Luca both hears the sound and senses the vibration as he stops squirming and then begins to relax once Lullafi is introduced into his bed.
As for our inspiration, it was all about helping family. As co-founder and creator Mike Boren says,
To reproduce the low frequencies that an infant experiences in the womb, it takes a lot of sound and big speakers. As we developed Lullafi, we started out with something the size of a loaf of bread, and got it down to about the size of a garage door opener, all while making the sound and vibrations more effective at low, safe volumes.
Once we had the science and technology in place, we then set out to design a beautiful and elegant enclosure that would complement any nursery as well as convenient and portable for use on the go.
We feel the care and attention to detail that we have put into the design and development of Lullafi is on display with our latest prototype. All the time and effort has been worth it as we really believe in Lullafi and have gone the extra mile because it actually works.
Lullafi was designed with a premium speaker and components that are non-toxic and safe for all sentient beings, especially newborn babies! It's actually quite magical to see a crying baby calm down immediately once Lullafi is attached to the baby carrier, cradle or crib as several of our early Beta testers have remarked:
- "Lullafi provides a great way to escape the baby’s room without waking them up again. While we typically still had to get our baby to sleep through rocking and singing, laying the baby down and getting out of the room without waking her up was almost impossible. Lullafi helps solve this problem because it muffles floor or door squeaks and soothes the baby so we can start on other things." - Jack
- "Lullafi is amazing! My daughter had a hard time sleeping, except when riding in the car. With the Lullafi, she'll sleep anywhere. We attach it to her crib or pack & play. No more long car drives!" - Mary
Smart Stuff Creates the Sense of Touch—Lullafi’s patent-pending sound and vibration mechanism utilizes an enhanced low-frequency tactile transducer to create a vibration on a hard surface based upon the sound input.
Compact and portable—Lullafi is roughly the same size as a small garage door opener, making it easy for parents to use in the nursery, around the home or on the go. Just latch it to the baby’s crib, car seat or carrier, turn it on, and wish the little one a good sleep.
The right sounds—Lullafi's onboard memory contains five built-in sounds programmed with delta sleep wave patterns that both induce sleep and also train the brain to recognize such sounds as a cue to sleep.
Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility—parents can live-stream anything through Lullafi from their smartphone, tablet, or another Bluetooth compatible device, from classic lullabies, to ambient sounds, to their own favorite music.
Rechargeable batteries—Lullafi’s USB rechargeable battery is a unique feature that not only helps keep the device small, but also cuts down on waste.
We could have put Lullafi on Kickstarter two years ago but we didn't. It wasn't ready. The company, marketing and financial plans weren't fully formed. And speaking of formed....as you can see from these old prototypes, the design itself needed a little refinement as well.
After two-plus years of research and development we put into creating the Lullafi Sound Sleep Solution, we have persevered through nearly every risk and challenge to arrive at our Kickstarter launch. A unique, patented, beautifully designed and crafted device, Lullafi will be manufactured and assembled in the USA, keeping innovation, opportunities and jobs in this country.
Our goal from the beginning was not only to provide the highest quality product but to also create a viable thriving company that can continue to improve Lullafi and support its community of customers. With your help we will also create more opportunities and jobs with the manufacturing and assembling agreements we have in place to build Lullafi in the USA.
In terms of development of the product on a startup budget, we have taken Lullafi to this point and this is where you come in! We need your help to take Lullafi to the next stage as considerable capital is necessary to cover the expenses related to legal and regulatory approval as well as the design and tooling for our manufacturing molds and components. Kickstarter is the perfect venue, with open-minded and supportive backers like you to help us take Lullafi to a world-wide market so that newborn babies all over the world can get a sound sleep.

Risks and challenges
We currently have a provisional patent, several working prototypes and upon successful Kickstarter funding, we will iterate the final production prototype to include revisions based upon the input from our backers and continued testing. We have also screened and selected manufacturing and distribution partners with solid humanitarian and environmental track records.
Many of our partners and most of our production, packaging and assembly is just a drive down the street. We have developed strong working relationships over the past two years as Lullafi has grown from crudely assembled spare parts into the refined prototype you see today. With the aid and expertise of our partners we have built in contingencies to our production and financial plans to ensure the quality of Lullafi and the most optimal delivery time we can provide.
We will continue to operate with a philosophy that values community, relationship and generosity. We have witnessed this philosophy in action by all those who have helped us get Lullafi from concept to Kickstarter and offer our sincerest gratitude.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
