Inspired by Barney and Shadow, our very own pair of beautiful barn owls nesting nearby, this lovely carrier features an adorable owl print. From our SleepyNico office we regularly see Barney and Shadow hunting in the Suffolk countryside so when we saw this gorgeous fabric, we simply couldn’t resist making a carrier out of it – and there really was only one name for it!

A range of beautiful hand-selected prints and a super comfortable easy-to-wear design are what set SleepyNico baby and toddler carriers apart. Quite simply our products make carrying a lovely experience for you and your child.

Designed and made in the UK, we’ve been creating gorgeous carriers to keep your little one close for over 10 years because we’re passionate about the connection and freedom that carrying your child brings.

Available in grey corduroy and as 'made to order' only, please contact us for timings and to order.

Sleepy Nico Carriers can be used in either a Front carry, on the chest facing in, or a Back carry, with babies belly to your back.

We do not recommend or make slings that front carry with baby facing outwards. Our carer facing positions are comfortable and ergonomic, which is best for a hip healthy position. You can find out more about this here.
