It has been another really exciting year for Sleepy Nico, this little company continues to grow and I am so proud to be helping it along. Here are just a few of the highlights from 2015.
Sleepy Nico Toddler Carriers
We have been making the toddler size for a while now and they are so popular. There have been some amazing designs, including a Hogwarts Map, stunning wrap conversions and of course the original SplashMaps Sleepy Nico carrier. We are now delighted to be able to offer a small range of ready to wear toddler size carriers and will be building on this in 2016.
Sleepy Nico now has baby carriers available from a handpicked group of shops and online retailers. All of them are trained carrying consultants and can offer you expert help with fitting and safety. You can find them at:
The Sling-Spot in Sheffield – Rosie stocks three limited edition designs exclusive to The Sling-Spot, Maggie, Fred and Savanna as well as our baby carrier 'collection'.
Seahorse Slings in Ireland - Nicola based in Cork sells a small selection of our carriers, take a look for designs now discontinued.
Love to be Natural in Northern Ireland – Beth has a broad selection of Sleepy Nico baby carriers available to buy.
Just Keep Slinging – Hen has a small selection of our carriers and a few limited editions are still available
Northern Sling Exhibition
What a blast we had up in Sheffield this summer for the Northern Sling Exhibition, Sleepy Nico was the silver sponsor of this fantastic educational event introducing and informing so many parents about the benefits of babywearing.
Our stall was very busy with so many happy faces and beautiful babies. Thanks for all those who let me photograph them for our special picture.
2015 saw lots of pretty new baby carriers go on sale, it has been so much fun choosing the fabrics that will carry your babies. Our new charity carrier was also launched in the autumn, with £10 from every sale going to Bryn's Helping Hand. This design has proved really popular and we are already on our second run.
The beautiful fabric was chosen by Bryn's parents Rosie and Midge in his memory and the story behind the Importance of Feathers is very moving.
Prima Baby Awards 2016
What a great way to end the year with the fabulous news that Sleepy Nico have been shortlisted for a #PrimaBabyAwards2016. We won't hear until the beginning of March but are totally thrilled that our baby carrier is listed alongside some of the big names in babywearing.
Next year we are welcoming the lovely Sarah who will be working alongside Kerri making custom made baby and toddler carriers and some of our limited editions. We are also hoping to get out and about and meet more of you at events around the country – we'll be at the Suffolk Baby Show in March.
Thank you for your custom and support this year, it has been amazing.
Happy New Year
