Sleep Favorite is a new feature of the Rest family. Rest includes 1 Sleep Favorite to help your little one transition to sleep. With your Sleep Favorite, you'll be able to move seamlessly from storytime, snuggles, or lullabies, right into a peaceful slumber.
The Sleep Favorite is distinguishable from your other Favorites by the little moon and star icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Favorite image. Your Sleep Favorite can only include one of the 13 preloaded sounds.
It can be enabled to follow any favorite that appears in a square, as this content has a set duration. Once the content ends, the Rest will gently transition to the Sleep Favorite. It can also be started while your Time-for-Bed is playing! The Sleep Favorite can also be played on a schedule! Head to this article for more on Schedule Sleep!
How to use your Sleep Favorite after playing a Favorite
Select the pencil icon above the My Favorites section. Select the Favorite that you'd like your Sleep Favorite to follow. Select a bedtime story, lullaby, kid-approved meditation, or any of Hatch Sleep Library's hundreds of expert-curated sleep tracks under the Unwind tab. At the bottom of your Edit Favorite screen, you'll see a button to toggle on - if activated, the next time you play that Favorite when the content ends it will transition into your Sleep Favorite, which you've preset with your favorite sleep sound (i.e. white noise, thunderstorm, ocean) + light combination.
Please note that you can transition to the Sleep Favorite after your Time-for-Bed with no additional adjustments needed! Just tap the touch ring while the Time-for-Bed is playing and it will transition to your Sleep Favorite.
Here's an example of how your Sleep Favorite works using a Favorite:
You and your little one snuggle and start your favorite to listen to Head Shoulders Knees and Toes before bed with a warm red light.
Once the song ends, your Sleep Favorite fades in. You set it up once and you're good to go every night. Rest starts playing your preset combination of blue light with Thunderstorm sounds. The light turns to blue, dims itself to 60%, and sets Thunderstorm to play at 35% volume all night.
You can tiptoe out of the room knowing that your family is all set for snoozing until morning.
How to use your Sleep Favorite after a Time-for-Bed
It's almost bedtime and your Time-for-Bed signal begins at the scheduled time, letting your little one know it's time to get ready for bed. Once they are ready they can just tap the top of the Rest and their Sleep favorite will fade in. You set it up once and you're good to go every night. For this to happen seamlessly, make sure your Sleep Favorite is saved as your first Favorite!
