Glow Dreaming is the creation of one desperate mum who struggled with her daughter’s inability to fall asleep. The device combines light therapy, aromatherapy, pink noise and a humidifier, which work together to relax and calm children and help them fall asleep.
Glow Dreaming uses red LED light therapy which NASA uses to help its astronauts sleep, as it stimulates the body’s production of melatonin, the hormone responsible for sleep. You may have heard about white noise but studies prove that pink noise, a combination of sounds naturally found in nature, is the best for sleep. Dr Stephane Pigeon, leading sound specialist, developed Glow Dreaming’s pink noise component. The sounds are a combination of frequencies commonly heard in waterfalls, rain and thunder.
The device also comes with organic, medicinal grade essential oils, designed to relax the muscles and calm the mind ensuring your child falls asleep, and a cool mist humidifier helps ease breathing, prevent snoring, and creates the ideal sleep environment for your child.
Inspired by the cuddliest of kittens, the Stimuli collection by Kaloo not only offers an abundance of toys that are engaging, ideal for sensory playtime, but are also guaranteed to look stunning in any nursery.
