Kids and their sleep woes are a hot topic pretty much as soon as our littles are born. Less discussed are the sleep issues that parents face—also pretty much as soon as our littles are born! Thankfully, the latter topic was the chief inspiration for the latest gadget by Hatch, the makers of the beloved all-in-one device for kiddos, Hatch Rest+. The company’s newest device is called Hatch Restore and it’s all about helping adults sleep better and longer (amen!).
In research that inspired the creation of Hatch Restore, Hatch found that 72% of the 2,000 adults surveyed said they were lacking in both the amount of sleep and quality of sleep they were getting, with the average adult receiving only 65 nights of full, uninterrupted sleep a year. On the other 80% of nights, these same adults reported an average of 90 minutes lying awake, unable to go back to sleep.
And this is why Hatch Restore was born. The multi-functional device includes a calming bedside reading light that cues the body for sleep, recorded meditations that encourage relaxation, a variety of soothing sleep sounds to keep you asleep longer, and a sunrise-like alarm to help users awake naturally before a gentle audio alarm kicks in. The sleek bedside device can be easily controlled by an app on your phone (or, if you’d prefer to be phone-free, from the Restore itself).
To dive even deeper into the importance of rest—especially for taxed-out parents—we caught up with L.A.-based mama of one and founder of Matana Organics, Gabriela Babila, on her own sleep and self-care routine as a busy entrepreneur and toddler mom. Take a look below, as Gabriela and her adorable 2-year-old Natanya show us their cozy resting spots, just in time for the often sleep-disrupting end to Daylight Savings Time on November 1st (mark your calendars!).
