Sleepy Nico's Highlights of 2014

Posted on December 05, 2014 | Posted under Baby Carrier, Charity, Charity of the Year, Competition, Sleepy Nico Carrier, Toddler Carrier | Leave a Comment

In the last month of 2014, in the last week of the autumn term I am finding just a minute to look back at what has been such an amazing year for Sleepy Nico and for me.

In February I attended a four day Slingababy Course to become a babywearing consultant - this was very exciting and tough too, I learned so much about different slings and carriers, correct fitting and the physiology behind carrying. I have been able to implement much of my learning into Sleepy Nico. It was also great to get to know the inspirational Lorette and catch up with some of the Suffolk Babywearing ladies.

Our toddler carrier passed all the important parts of safety testing in spring and we were able to offer toddler size Sleepy Nico carriers made to order. Since then we have made some amazing carriers including the SplashMaps made from a waterproof map of the Peak District. Watch out for our toddler collection to be launched next year.

As well as Kerri, the fabulous Jane and Ana joined the team. Kerri makes all your toddler carriers and some of the custom made baby ones. Ana produces our collection and many of your custom made baby designs. Jane is a saint and does all the cutting and she organises me quite a bit too!

We are very proud to have supported a number of charities this year. An Edith was auctioned for Raising for Rana in the spring and we ran our own auction to raise money and awareness for DIPG and Daisy. We also launched our charity carrier of the year - the stunning Lucy, from which £10 of every sale goes to The Honey Rose Foundation.

We are delighted to be supporting the UP Project - which works to ensure that children in low income families who are disadvantaged are given the opportunity to experience the benefits of being carried in a baby sling or carrier.

Sleepy Nico made the I Love Owls collection and some gorgeous Limited Edition Liberty Prints. Look out for more Limited Edition designs next year too. We had two competitions which resulted in some fun name ideas for the Mrs Jumbo print and for International Babywearing Week some fantastic photos - thanks to all those who entered.

You can now buy suck pads to match your Sleepy Nico carrier and this is because of the wonderful Sarah at Tuesday's Child who we are so pleased to be working with. Sarah makes gorgeous babywearing accessories and is another Sheffield lady. Thanks Sarah.

Finally, Sleepy Nico has introduced me to some of the loveliest, most dedicated and passionate people out there. Rosie K, Rosie D, Kiri-Kay, Amy, Lorette, Ali D and Lindsay and Furbs. Thanks for all your support and everyone else who I didn't name too. Looking forward to a brilliant 2015.

Photo Competition

Posted on October 05, 2014 | Posted under Baby Carrier, Competition, Sleepy Nico Carrier, Toddler Carrier | Leave a Comment

We love seeing your gorgeous photos and our facebook page is packed with pictures from all over the country (and world) of you with your happy children in your Sleepy Nico.

To celebrate International Babywearing Week we thought it would be lovely to have a competition to find a simply stunning picture, one that sums up Sleepy Nico and could be used on our website and social media pages.

Because we love our customers, if yours is the chosen photo you will win your own custom made Sleepy Nico carrier - your choice. You can have a baby carrier to add to your collection or if your little one is much bigger now, a toddler size! Perhaps a dear friend is expecting a baby and you can have this one made for them. We don't mind.

You don't have to be a Sleepy Nico owner to enter, if you have a picture taken with a borrowed one or a sling library loan that's fine too. All we ask is that you email us a print quality size photo and by doing so you are you consenting to allow us to use it (we would never use a photograph without your permission).

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.

Sleepy Nico Spring Competition

Posted on May 02, 2014 | Posted under Baby Carrier, Competition, Sleepy Nico Carrier | Leave a Comment

Last year I held a name the carrier competition to celebrate a year as the owner of Sleepy Nico. It felt a bit old fashioned asking people to do something, but the responses I got were fantastic and so interesting. It reminded me of when I was a child and I was always trying to write a slogan in ten words or solve a problem to win a prize.

It's not quite two years but there still feels like there is a lot to celebrate; a toddler carrier in production, lovely new seamstresses and lots of great feedback. Below is a picture of one of Sleepy Nico's new spring carriers and it doesn't have a name yet. Could you give it the perfect name? Perhaps it makes you think of someone you love or reminds you of a happy time. Let me know what you think it should be called and why and the entry that inspires me the most will win the baby carrier :)

Please email info@sleepynico.com with the words Competition in the subject line by Friday 9th May.

 

THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

The best name will be chosen and the winner informed later in the week. The winning name will be used in the Sleepy Nico Spring Collection 2014.

Good luck
