This adult SLEEP ROBOT is meant to help you sleep better

Sleep robot

An adult version of Ollie the Owl or Ewan the Sheep, Dutch brand Somox have designed a peanut shaped SLEEP ROBOT, said to help adults sleep better.

According to the website, ‘when spooning Somnox during the night you will be soothed to sleep’ with a breath function, lullabies and affection. Sounds like something you’d buy for your baby, right?

When holding the Somnox, you will hear it breathe, which is said to reduce stress and induce sleep. The creators believe you will eventually mirror your breath to the Somnox, making it easy to reach a meditative state of mind helping you drift off.

Like your baby’s favourite sleep gadget, you can listen to a heartbeat, white noise or a lullaby as you drop off, or record your own.

These clever sounding gadgets are not yet on the market, but are said to retail at over £500. Find out more about it here.

Reading a book

Right til the end. These days, your literary opportunities tend to revolve around supermarket labels, picture books and a quick scroll of your friends' status updates on Facebook.

The commute

You relish the music from your train neighbour’s headphones simply because it’s not anything from a Disney film. And you laugh when you hear someone complain about a long journey. Do they not realise how amazing that time is for catching up on Twitter? Or, let’s be honest, napping.

Proper yoghurt

Your usual is Petit Filou – makes sense if your toddler’s having them anyway. So treating yourself to a grown-up yoghurt with a special fruit compote or chocolate section? Bliss.

Watching Made In Chelsea

Those evenings where you get to finish a full episode of something on Netflix without falling asleep. Winning.

A trip to the hairdresser ALONE!

You’d usually be taking your toddler for a trim, in a constant slight cold sweat that he won’t sit still or might run riot. So, getting to go on your own? To sit in that chair, drink the herbal tea, read the magazines (yes, plural!)… Bliss.

Wearing those earrings

You know the ones – big, beautiful, don’t-need-a-necklace earrings that make any outfit. Except they’re also baby eye candy, enticing her to pull on them at every opportunity. Ouch! Got a babysitter for the evening? Out they come.

A bath

One without brightly coloured bubble bath, squeaky plastic toys or the potential for the room to be flooded.
