An Extra Helping Hand for New Parents
Israel – New parents are busy and anything that helps them navigate the stress of constant multitasking is welcomed. Now, NoomiNoomi offers new parents a helping hand in the form of a portable rocker.
The portable device attaches securely onto prams and imitates the rhythmic rocking motions that parents typically perform themselves to send their babies to sleep. A rocking movement relaxes babies as it’s similar to the motion experienced in the womb. It signals the cerebellum to slow down the baby’s heart rate and calms down the baby. However, once babies associate being rocked in the arms of their parents with sleep, it can be difficult to break the cycle – NoomiNoomi is designed step in and free parents up. The patented design, created by two Israeli dads Shay Tarrab and Nati Benodiz, has the additional feature of playing calming lullabies via integrated speakers and an accompanying app. It also turns off automatically after 8 minutes to avoid waking up the baby.
