What they say:

“The Sleepyhead Deluxe is a must have for newborns - preemies included! The Sleepyhead is the only product that helps reinvent the womb giving new babies a snug place to sleep. The Sleepyhead has a cushioning effect on the moro reflex, meaning newborns will sleep better and for longer. All parts of the Sleepyhead can be washed at 60C, so your Sleepyhead will stay hygienic and can even be taken into the maternity ward. The Sleepyhead was voluntarily tested for firmness and air-permeability to ensure it surpassed all British Standards. Each pod is handmade in Europe with Oeko-Tex certified materials.”

This product is fantastic!!! Before receiving this product, I didn't even know it existed. Before testing this product, my 3 month old son found sleeping on a standard pillow or even a duvet much more comfortable than his standard mattress and often never stirred once throughout the night. This product is excellent and means he can sleep in a smaller space but still with the added padding and comfort. The Sleepyhead Deluxe is extremely simple to use and stores away really well. It can be taken anywhere we go and is really useful when staying elsewhere because your baby is already used to the smell and comfort and therefore it is like "home from home".

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Sleepyhead Deluxe has definitely made my life a lot easier. This is because I am able to take this anywhere with me and know that my son is comfortable and happy because he is used to it. I cannot praise this product enough. My son instantly settled the moment I put him into it. When my son takes a nap during the day, he often fights his sleep and can often take a while to finally drift off to sleep. This product completely eliminates this and I have found from the moment I tried him with the product, he instantly relaxed and fell straight asleep.

I have never seen this product advertised, but I will definitely be recommending to others. I know a few mums who have struggled with the transition from moses basket to cot, presumably because their babies feel daunted by the prospect of a larger space and intimidated because of this. I believe this product with completely eliminate this problem, leaving mother and baby much happier.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I could change one thing about the Sleepyhead Deluxe, it would be the colour. On occasion my baby has been known to drool vomit when asleep and therefore this would really stand out on the bright, white product. My thoughts on this would be maybe changing the colour to a pale lemon. Therefore it would be unisex and may help contribute to it looking cleaner for longer. I understand that the product will be cleaned regularly, however if the colour was different, the product would seem cleaner for longer.

The Sleepyhead Deluxe has worked brilliantly for us! My baby was quickly growing too big for his Moses basket and while he slept well in his crib at night time, he didn't seem to want to sleep in his crib during the day so resorted to sleeping on me! I tried baby in the Sleepyhead inside his crib for his afternoon nap and he was snoozing within minutes! As the Sleepyhead is so easily movable it can go in his crib if we're at home or just on the floor if we're at someone else's house.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The Sleepyhead Deluxe makes my life easier as I am now put baby down for a nap during the day, meaning I can actually get things done, have a shower, do some housework! Also as baby sleeps well in the Sleepyhead for an hour or so then he's in a better mood for the rest of the day and I don't worry about him sleeping in awkward positions. I feel that the Sleepyhead is helping us get into a routine which we were struggling with previously.

I love that the Sleepyhead can go anywhere, floor, cot, crib or in bed with me if I choose to co sleep without worrying about my baby's safety.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I really had to pick something to change it would be to have a darker cover on the Sleepyhead as I can see the white, although looking beautiful brand new, could start to look grubby soon. Not a big deal though as I know the cover is washable. The Sleepyhead Deluxe may seem a little pricey at first, but I think the results we've had after less than a week make it great value.

The Sleepyhead Deluxe is an amazing product, it is very soft and comfy, kept my baby warm and feeling secure which meant he slept more comfortable and slept for longer. My baby suffers with startle reflex and he will not settle unless he is in my arms, but as soon as I lay him down no matter how much of a deep sleep he is in he will suddenly awake and cry. Using the Sleepyhead Deluxe I have been able to get him to sleep and keep him asleep without having to keep holding him.

The Sleepyhead Deluxe is an amazing product that I would highly recommend to anyone, it makes my baby feel so safe and secure and now he sleeps he is less irritable and grumpy too. It also keeps baby safe and in the right position while sleeping.

What changes would you make to this product?

The price tag is very large and for a lot of people they may be put off by that but it is well worth the money. The only other thing I found is that the replacement covers or additional covers for the cushion are very expensive for what they are. At £40 a cover it does seem a little expensive but I have fallen in love with this product so would be willing to pay that.

The product helped my son sleep, which is exactly what the product is designed to do. It reduced the space in his crib so he felt more secure and he can't roll anywhere so seems to get a more restful sleep. It's lightweight and easily portable. It is washable however not the easiest to reassemble afterwards, which I discovered after my son had a vomiting bug. Spare covers are very expensive, but may be a necessity for a sicky baby.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I feel I can put my son down to sleep and be confident that his naps will be restful and I worry a lot less over night as he can't roll over as he sometimes did! Being able to easily transport it around the house so he can nap on it downstairs or upstairs has been great. I have also used this product for tummy time and I like that he is secure when doing that and can't roll too far then either!

I think this product could make sleep a lot more peaceful for many parents. I think the price would put a lot of people off buying it, however I do believe that if they took the plunge, they would not regret it. I do think it would help a newborn baby adjust to being in a cot/crib and settle easier, which I know a lot of parents have a problem with at first (we certainly did)! 

What changes would you make to this product?

Babies get sick or have nappy explosions and therefore having a spare cover or more reasonably priced covers would make life easier. We had to go without the product for a couple of nights when my son was poorly as I couldn't tumble dry most of it and it had not dried in time for use. This affected the consistency with bed time which was more traumatic to him as he was not well.

I have already recommended to so many parents. I wish I had known about this product with my first boy! My little boy sleep so well, you can tell he feels so comfy and secure. We have taken it away on holiday and it's great how he never knows his bed had changed as he always has his Sleepyhead. I love how it fits in is crib and now his cot. I want one for me!

How did this product make your life easier?     

I have a piece of mind that he is sleeping safely and love the fact that he wakes up happy. I have had a totally different child sleep wise to my first and I do put it down to the Sleepyhead. It is very portable which has made our little breaks away a lot easier especially with limited space in the car. Instead of having to take a travel cot I know it can rest on top of a bed and he is safe where he sleeps.

Would you choose this product to win?

I love how portable this is and how perfectly it surrounds my boy like a mother’s warm embrace. It feels soft and comfy yet firm and safe. As soon as he is surrounded by the Sleepyhead he knows where he is and starts to settle for sleep almost instantly. 

What changes would you make to this product?

The additional covers are very expensive for the Sleepyhead and it doesn't come with one. It would be nice to have one or to even reduce the price especially when the price of the Sleepyhead is so costly. I have been using my cot bed sheets to wrap around it so there are alternatives.
