About Sleepy Nico

Sleepy Nico is an award-winning baby brand based in the heart of Suffolk.
We design, create and sell a beautiful selection of bespoke baby slings and toddler carriers along with a host of accessories.
All our carriers are made in the UK by dedicated seamstresses and tested to British safety standards.


The Sleepy Nico story

Sleepy Nico baby carriers were first made in London in 2008 when two like-minded mothers called Maria and their sons, both called Nico, designed a baby carrier that combined simplicity and beauty.
The business is now run by mother-of-two Angeline Braidwood, who bought a sling when her first daughter was tiny and loved the product so much she ended up buying the company too.
Her vision has helped make Sleepy Nico a leading brand name here in the UK.


It’s product range has expanded to include a toddler carrier along with a “pick and mix” option to offer parents control over fabric and colours.
In 2016 the business won silver awards in the Prima Baby and Toddler Awards and Gentle Parenting Awards and was listed in the top 10 sling manufacturers rated by Sling Librarians.
It was also named as one of the Future50 – 50 high-growth organisations based in East Anglia.
