Lyra / Parenting Smart Device


During the first years of parenting developing a routine can be tricky. Babies are fed every couple of hours, crying is their form of communication, sleep becomes unpredictable, causing schedules to go downhill. Routines provide a relief from the chaos giving babies rhythm and predictability to their day. Lyra is a health and wellness, voice activated, hands free parenting tool that administers a day by day routine. Convenient for when days and nights blur together, Lyra captures information for doctors and communicates with loved ones. Lyra provides a framework everyday thats flexible enough to allow parents to respond to their baby’s needs.
