One of my favorite memories growing up was my 7th grade trip to Catalina Island. What I remember most is sleeping with our cabin windows open and falling asleep to the ocean breeze. Lia has slept with the aide of a white noise machine since she was born. Nothing seemed to calm her more than the sounds of the ocean. In the car everyone would rush to youtube ocean sounds so she could relax. At home we always had to remember to turn it on and she would fall asleep easily. The moment we shut it off she would wake up. I guess she loves the ocean sounds as much as I do.
I was so excited to set up her Hatch Baby Rest, a night light & sound machine & ok-to-wake machine all in one. But the fact that it is a multi-functional product isn’t even the best part…you can control it from your phone! Yes there is an app for it! This is by far my favorite feature!
How Does It Work?
- Plug it into power outlet
- Download the Hatch Baby Rest app
That’s it! 2 easy steps.
What Does The App Do?
The app gives you the ability to program settings to fit your child’s needs.
The Night Light & Sounds Machine Settings:
You can set custom times along with a choice of sound, the volume, the duration of time, and the color & brightness of light. I have mine set from the girls bedtime to the time they are usually up. Lia isn’t much of a night light kinda girl but Zoey is. Since Lia is in bed by 7:30pm and Zoey is in bed at 8:15pm then I have a 730pm-8:15pm setting with no light, then a setting from 8:15pm-9:15pm with light and then again 9:15pm-7:30am with no light. It is amazing because I don’t need to run in there and shut it off or make sure Zoey set timers. We were going through batteries like crazy because she would turn off timers and just let the lights run all night. And all these setting you can set from your phone.
You can also set a favorites settings with a couple different combinations but no times. Each time you tap the ring of the Rest it switches between those preset favorites.
The ok-to-wake setting basically is to help your child learn when to get out of bed. You can set the ok-to-wake from your phone as well and set a designated time for your child. Your little one will learn that when the light turns green it’s okay to get out of bed.
Along with the convenience there are these super cute coverlets you can get to match your Rest with your babe’s nursery decor!
Having the ability to control this device from your phone means no more sneaking into the room to turn things on or off. No more accidentally waking up the baby. You simply grab your phone and set it up! Now the girls get what they need to sleep well and rest all night long. And if kiddos get to rest so does Mamma Bear!!!
