Bellefonte, PA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

SleepPhones is debuting nationwide in Brookstone stores and on Brookstone.com this spring, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Constantly on-the-go, juggling a career and family and putting everyone before themselves, many mothers have a hard time unwinding at the end of the day. SleepPhones is just what moms need this year so they can relax and drift into dreamland easily.

SleepPhones is a patented headband with built-in speakers that enable the user to fall asleep easily and comfortably. Unlike bulky headphones and irritating ear buds that can be painful and fall out, SleepPhones use ultra-thin speakers sewn into a soft, warm fleece headband. Brookstone will be selling the stylish and comfortable SleepPhones in lavender for $49.95 in stores and on Brookstone.com.

About 50 to 70 million men and women in America suffer from sleep or wakefulness disorders and research suggests that certain sounds like white noise, sounds of nature or even favorite tunes can help us fall asleep gently*.

When lack of sleep became a personal issue for SleepPhones inventor, Wei-Shin Lai, M.D., she knew she needed to create a solution other than habit-forming pills. A mother herself, Dr. Lai understands the importance of sleep, especially when you have a family to take care of.

"Users tell us that they can listen to their favorite music, an audio book or binaural beats technology sounds that can make getting to sleep comfortable, convenient and extremely easy," said Dr. Lai.

SleepPhones will be available in Brookstone stores nationwide for $49.99 in lavender.
