Tranquilo – Vibrating Baby Mat

One of the biggest challenges for new parents everywhere is the “crying for no reason” baby struggle. Hours of bouncing, rocking, “shh”ing and other methods can work, but are certainly no guarantee. As a maternity nurse and “Baby Whisperer”, Melissa Gersin knew the struggle quite well. During the course of her career, she taught hundreds of new parents how to calm crying babies, but felt helpless when those methods sometimes failed. Even worse, she knew that an inability to soothe a baby could have long-term impacts on the bonds between mom and baby. That’s why she invented Tranquilo.

Tranquilo is a portable vibrating mat that is designed to help soothe baby anytime, anywhere. The mat works by mimicking the motions and sounds of the womb to recreate the calm environment babies are accustomed to, in order to bring a sense of relaxation to stressed-out babies—and their stressed-out parents. According to Tranquilo’s research, the sounds inside the womb can reach up to 80 decibels, about as loud as a vacuum cleaner or hair dryer. Babies are used to the sway of momma’s body as she moves and changes positions. Tranquilo works to reproduce these sounds gently and comfortably.

Tranquilo mimics the sounds and movements of the womb by gently vibrating, much like traditional chairs and swings. This portable mat comes in small and large sizes, and is easy to use and maneuver. This means that mom can hold baby while soothing with the mat, rather than breaking skin-to-skin contact by placing an infant in another device. Rather than just focusing on quieting baby to peaceful sleep, mom can interact with and even play with her baby while on the mat.

Tranquilo is easy to travel with, making it great for car rides, shopping trips, doctor visits, overnight stays with grandma, and so much more. Its compact design makes it easy to place inside a diaper bag. It’s been tested for CPSIA safety to ensure no harm comes to baby from using it, and the Tranquilo Mat has received the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval.

Tranquilo was co-founded by maternity nurse Melissa Gersin and mom Ashley Robinson. Gersin feels it is her mission in life to help moms face challenges to create healthy bonds with their babies, and Robinson can attest to that. With VP of Operations and aunt Annie Hall on the team, the trio is on the road to creating a new staple in every modern baby room. Tranquilo is the answer to the overworked parent’s nightmare: a night spent awake soothing a “crying for no reason” newborn.

Tranquilo’s two convenient sizes make it easy to use and easy to travel with, wherever baby troubles may arise. The goal as a new parent isn’t to have a quiet baby. Rather, the goal is to foster a happy, peaceful baby and subsequent household. Tranquilo helps parents to do just that. Parents can experiment with Tranquilo’s five unique settings to find the one that best fits baby’s needs, from low vibration to high vibration, as well as settings that mimic momma’s heartbeat.

Update: Tranquilo is now part of the Baby Breeza line of products.
