the mumPad

A Baby sleeping pad that mimics the heartbeat and breathing pattern of mum
  [vote for,

Using an airbladder, the pad can move up and down at a frequency akin to mother's breathing pattern. A simple transducer will softly play mum's heart beat near the head of child.

The pad itself should be contoured as if the child is sleeping on mum/dad's chest and should be equally warm.

       Brilliant! Needs to be part heating-blanket also, to mimic Mom's skin temp.   

       Also, make it programmable to be warm and purr like a kitty, for kids who like animals better than people.   

       Program 3: car motion, white-noise motor sounds.   

       Program 4: clothes dryer sound and rocking motion.

       My first impression was negative, like cheating a baby.   

       But, many children must spend their first days at a neonatal intensive care unit, inside an incubator. I think would be brilliant used for this purpose [+]
