Hatch Baby Expands Rest Family with New Sleep Support Device, Rest+

The next generation of Rest, the all-in-one Rest+ combines five nursery necessities into one portable smart device

MENLO PARK, Calif., June 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silicon Valley-based smart nursery company Hatch Baby expanded its line of sleep support devices with the introduction of Rest+, the second product to join the Rest Family. Designed by sleep experts and loved by parents, Rest+ packs all of the tools parents need to establish healthy sleep habits for their family into one modern device.

Following the remarkable success of the original Rest, Hatch Baby developed Rest+, the next generation device that features five nursery necessities in one sleek device. Parents can still enjoy helpful features like the sound machine, nightlight and Time-to-Rise that can be found in the original Rest, but additional elements make this device every parent’s dream. The new addition of the audio monitor and clock provide parents with new ways to monitor their child’s sleep patterns and help them snooze soundly.

Additionally, Rest+ makes it easier than ever for busy parents to take their sleep support on the go. Whether parents need to use it in another room of the house or take it on the family vacation, Rest+ has it covered with a new rechargeable battery and cord-free capabilities. Since parents often have their hands full, Rest+ is now Alexa-enabled so parents can change the lights, sounds, and more without lifting a finger through simple commands like, “Alexa, turn up the volume.” Finally, to avoid waking a sleeping baby, Rest+ allows parents to turn the device on and off and change the volume and brightness remotely from anywhere using their smartphone. 

Rest+ 5-in-1 features include:

  • Audio monitor: Parents can now check in on their child in their room without the risk of disrupting their little one’s sleep right from their phone — no extra gadgets necessary.
  • Sound machine: Parents can choose from a range of sound options, from white noise to soft lullabies. They can simply crank up the volume remotely when the dog barks or the neighbors throw a party.
  • Night light: This feature, which stays cool to the touch, provides soft and soothing lighting for midnight feeding sessions or bright and reassuring light when the dark feels scary for older kids. Parents and kids can choose from a rainbow of colors to make it their own, but the optional patented toddler-lock setting makes sure that parents are the only ones in control when needed.
  • Time-to-Rise: Green means go! This feature enables parents to teach toddlers and preschoolers to stay in bed until it’s time to rise once the light changes color (and enjoy those extra minutes of sleep).
  • Clock: Rest+ features an easy-to-read clock so that parents can stay on track with their busy schedules and can help teach children to read numbers.

“We know the importance of sleep when you’re a parent, no matter your child’s age,” said Ann Crady Weiss, co-founder and CEO of Hatch Baby. “This is why we worked closely with experts to develop Rest+, which grows with parents’ needs — first providing soft light for middle of the night diaper changes and nursing sessions, then alerting your toddler when it is ok to get out of bed in the morning or go to bed at night. We are thrilled to offer parents this tool to make their most important job a little easier.”

Rest+ is available for purchase for $79.99. Parents can also find the original Rest, which has garnered over 1,200 4- and 5-star reviews on Amazon, causing the product to be an “Amazon Choice” and “Best Seller” on the site, and featured in the Top 100 Baby Products on Amazon.
