How it Works
REINVENTS THE WOMB
Sleepyhead® has been designed to offer a safe, snug and soothing environment for babies. We like to think it's the next best thing to the womb. Babies can rest, play and lounge without the restrictions of buckles or the distraction of bells and whistles.
FACILITATES TUMMY TIME
Sleepyhead® is the ideal spot to let your little one get their tummy time in. The rounded bumper helps to prop up your baby when placed under their arms. Tummy time helps babies develop neck strength and helps teach them how to develop their motor skills.
Whether you're a jet-setting family or you just want to move the pod from room to room, Sleepyhead® is lightweight and simple to travel with. It sure beats letting baby rest on questionable hotel bedding.
EASES CRIB TO BED TRANSITION
The Sleepyhead Grand helps ease the transition from crib to toddler or big kid bed. The built-in, air-permeable bumpers act as bed rails, and give little ones a snug sense of security in their newer, bigger beds.
REDUCES RISK OF FLAT-HEAD SYNDROME
Positional plagiocephaly (aka Flathead Syndrome) is a result of a baby lying on one side of the head more than the other. The mattress on each Sleepyhead® is a soft thermobonded fibre wadding plate with a great bearing capacity to relieve pressure on the head. In addition, the fibres of the surrounding bumpers on each pod gives great support and can function as a positioning prop, enabling you to alternate the baby's resting position, from back to either side.
PROVIDES A PERFECT MICROCLIMATE
For a baby to be perfectly comfortable and safe, we need to think not just about their global climate, but about their microclimate as well. The microclimate is the space directly affecting their surroundings. Sleepyhead® is hypoallergenic and made with the most nurturing and hygienic fabrics that also have excellent air-permeability.
REDUCES STARTLE REFLEX
The startle or “moro” reflex is a natural reflex for babies between birth and 6 months. The startle reflex may only last a few seconds, but some babies can startle themselves awake during sleep. Sleepyhead® can help prevent the infants from waking up when they have the startle reflex due to the unique shape, positioning of the sides and the cushioning effect of the pod.
PEACE OF MIND
In a recent study, the use of the Sleepyhead® provided the mothers with a more easily controlled structure of care for their infants. Each of the mothers were able to accomplish more of the tasks assigned in the study with less signs of duress and fatigue than the alternative groups in which the Sleepyhead® was not used.
‘The Sleepyhead 'Baby Pod' represents a brilliant design that is specific in nature to stimulate an infant emotionally while having a strong influence on post-natal skill development.
Whether being used in solitary state or close proximity room-sharing, the strong porosity of the fabrics and materials used in the Sleepyhead reduce the risk of excessive perspiration for an infant as well as SIDS.
The Sleepyhead provides a near-perfect environment for the infant to develop with their questing mind, moving on impulsive action in a safe environment.’
