We’ve been talking about delta waves since our launch, and a few people have asked, “What exactly IS a delta wave?”
From the notebook of our founder Mike Boren (aka “Uncle Mike”):
“Think of a delta wave as a slow pulse or rhythm. A mother’s heartbeat or breathing in and out can be expressed as a delta wave. We instinctively bounce a baby when they are upset. This action is also a delta wave. Lullafi is designed to transmit delta waves through the sense of touch and sound.
Baby showers–who doesn’t love ’em? The wrapping paper, the snacks, the game where everyone guesses the flavor of unmarked jars of baby food and changes diapers loaded with chocolate sauce! Before you slog your way through mom-to-be’s gift registration, you can be fashion forward in the world of baby tech and give the gift of a restful sleep with Lullafi.
How? Just back Lullafi’s kickstarter campaign in the name of the mom-to-be on your list!

To celebrate our own advances, here’s a little visual display that shows where we’ve been and where we are.

As adults, we’ve no doubt pushed ourselves through sleepless days and nights at one time or another. Sometimes it’s a conscious decision to forgo unconscious dreaming–cramming for a test, staying up to get work done. Other times, a racing mind or neighbor’s power drill just keeps us awake until dawn.
