Storybook is an app which combines guided infant massages, narrated bedtime stories, and relaxing music to help parents get their children to relax and fall asleep. With Storybook a parent sets their phone next to the bed, hits play on a story and begins to listen to a bedtime story with relaxing background music. Following the infant massages illustrated on the screen, parents bond with their children while their children close their eyes and fall asleep.
“This is a great tool for parents to support their children (infants-age 10) at bedtime. The app actually narrates bedtime stories to very soft music and provides visuals for how to do infant/child massage. This is educational for the parents to help their children relax as well as providing a bonding experience between parents/caregiver and the child.”
“The stories are soothing and the music is as well. This provides the parents with a relaxing environment to help their child relax and fall asleep (could help the parents relax as well). The app has a survey so the stories and programs are personalized for the child’s needs and likes.”
