Ahh, Mothers. How do they do it?
So often backing up a day of work with all the responsibilities of running a household, keeping small (and not so small) humans alive, not to mention debriefing with Beloved Partner on their getting overlooked for yet another promotion…it can be an intense and thankless job. Plus that mega cognitive load can come at a very steep cost. How does Mum relax, not to mention sleep, when she’s got a To Do list longer than the Bible? When Enzo needs to somehow be at Karate practice and his Dance Recital tomorrow at the exact same time? When the mortgage has suddenly doubled yet hubby won’t stop talking about quitting his job and moving the family to an Alpaca farm in Tassie he once visited as a kid?
Earjobs can’t solve the tyranny of the double-shift, spatial physics or the ‘cozzie livs’. But this Mother’s Day, we can help you take the sting out of Mum's life with some handy relaxation and sleep tools that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Noisy neighbors, creaking floorboards, teenage sons and daughters coming home at all hours of the night… the list of loud interruptions in Mums life are many and multiple. Yet sleep has never been is such high demand!
The Alpine Sleepsoft is the original reusable sleeping ear plug and still one of the best. It doesn’t quite block as much sound as the newer SleepDeep, but it makes up for it with its ultra softness. Plus the lower noise reduction can be a benefit for anyone worried about being able to hear crying children at night or even their alarm clock.

It’s Sunday morning…
The kids are still asleep after staying up late on screens the night before. Beloved Partner has left the house already to go hit the round ball into the small hole. A sleep-in is finally on the cards… Oh no! Light is flooding into the bedroom. Despite the blind being drawn it’s still seeping in.
Enter Dozy, the most comfortable, effective light-blocking sleep mask on the market. This year, give mum the gift of the truly Lazy Sunday.

The Lectrofan White Noise Machine is perfect for any Mum looking to be ensconced in a world of relaxation. This could be at night, where the Lectrofan’s gentle hum masks any loud noise (works extra well with ear plugs!). But it could also be for the daytime, where it makes an otherwise loud room a den of relaxation. This is excellent for things like meditation, reading or yoga.

The Yogasleep Dohm Nova works much like the Lectrofan but rather than generating noise digitally like the Lectrofan does, the Dohm Nova creates white noise mechanically, which some people find that little bit more relaxing. It also features a tonne of extra features such as a night light, a sleep timer and a slick look. If you’re looking to really wow Mum this year, look no further than the Yogasleep Dohm Nova.
