Sleepytot began back in 2006 when new mum Lucy’s first baby, Laurie, was born. On the steepest learning curve of her life, she was getting to grips with parenthood and teaching Laurie to sleep through the night. All seemed to be going well until Laurie reached about 5 months old, and she was suddenly faced with the dreaded dummy runs.
Other than the fact that he needed Lucy to locate the dummy for him every time he woke (about 5 times a night!) things were beginning to fall into place and Lucy could see that Laurie was sleeping well and feeling safe and secure in his world.
Not strong enough to jump in with two feet and remove the dummy, Lucy set about creating a solution which would mean Laurie could use his soother independently. He needed something soft and loveable that was perfectly safe, that was easy for him to hold, and that she could attach dummies to, but also take them off to wash and replace easily. And of course it needed to be machine washable!
A long search for what she was looking for proved that there was nothing available to solve her problem and so Lucy set about creating her own product… and Sleepytot was born.
