Sleepy Nico Reviews

Posted on July 26, 2018 | Leave a Comment

Before I had my daughters I was the sort of person who wasn't just on time, I was early. I couldn't wait to get to places and I would leave early, arrive early and then hang around for ages feeling irritated that I had to wait. I was like a child - totally impatient.

Festivals for Families

Once upon a time there was a wild girl and her friend who every summer went to many music festivals. They loved Glastonbury the most and would wander from field to field enjoying the entertainment, people watching and atmosphere. They made a vow that when they had children they would take them and never stop going.

What inspires you? Could you turn it into a baby carrier?

Back to the beginning!

Almost six years ago, Sleepy Nico became part of my working life (as well as an invaluable tool for our family's parenting) and every evening I sat at our kitchen table and beavered away, often with my youngest daughter asleep in our sling. For the past three years though Sleepy Nico has been located in a studio in Sudbury, the town where we lived. It has been great, giving us much needed space back at home and a more professional working environment for myself and the freelance staff that make Sleepy Nico tick.

Carrying Connects

I love the theme for this year's European Babywearing Week. It encompasses the many different ways in which carrying a child is beneficial and lovely. It connects us to our children and them to us, it puts them at the centre of family life and connects us all to the wider world.

It seems since I've had children and run a business that that is all I do, I do the school run, I am always late so we run into school and then I rush home to go for a run. I am that Mum who looks like a headless chicken.

You may have noticed that our new collection has two rainbow carriers in it. Alfie, our charity carrier which has so much emotion in it really does represent hope – it supports the work of Pancreatic Cancer UK and SANDS. Rainbow Starburst, our collaboration with Wild Things, has such energy and fun wrapped up in all those colours. It's a joyous creation much like each beautiful child it carries.

Carrying Works review of Alfie Sleepy Nico Baby Carrier

We’ve used this carrier for quick trips into shops, the nursery run & days out. We used it for quick ups & longer carries. The simplicity & ease make it quick to use or change between person carrying. The structure of the carrier with its soft fabrics & gentle padding make it super comfortable. And the choices of fabrics & colour combinations, even the option to design a custom carrier, has created some stunning designs. I can honestly say the Sleepy Nico was a pleasure to use.

When it comes to babywearing, the most important thing to remember is that one size does not fit all. As the owner of a baby carrier brand you might expect me to be pushing my own above all else but that has never been the ethos of Sleepy Nico. In fact, I am a firm believer in try before you buy.
