Sleepyhead Grand Pod, Pristine White, 8-36 months
Most baby products are a total waste of money and you should not buy them. They're unnecessary and exploit parents' gullibility and naivety. However, this, for me, is an ESSENTIAL. If you buy nothing else buy this.
At 20 months my daughter had not slept more than a few hours in a row EVER. Within two nights of sleeping in this, she goes to bed at 7 and doesn't stir until 6 #ok sometimes it's 5.30 but that's her not the bed and you get the point#.
It is like sleeping in a giant cuddle and she loves it. Bye bye cot! We have this on the floor on top of the old cot mattress and it is perfect.
You know your child and if you suspect they're not sleeping because they don't like sleeping in a cot you're probably right and this is a great alternative.
Worth every penny. Thank you Sleepyhead for my sleep back.

My can't do without baby product
We previously used the deluxe version for our little boy to sleep in as I watched him begin to out grow it panic set in! I bought a different product and it just didn't provide me with the same peace of mind, then I discovered that a grand version was being launched. I couldn't wait to get one. It fits perfectly into the cot bed, providing a soft, comfy surround for my baby to sleep in. It's big enough that he is not restricted and has found many different sleeping positions, he loves to cuddle the 'bumper' and looks so comfortable and cute. Just like the smaller version it also works with with our monitor sensor pad. When friends ask about baby products I couldn't be with out sleepyheads are top of my list. I know my baby is safe, I don't have to worry about arms and legs becoming trapped in the cot bars and he sleeps comfortably and soundly meaning I get a better nights sleep. It works well with both sleeping bags and blankets. I can't recommend these products highly enough.

Although I didn't use the sleepyhead deluxe . I bought the sleepyhead grand after a friends recommendation as I was really struggling with my son sleeping , he was waking every 2-3 hours and wouldn't self settle himself back to sleep. After using the sleepy head grand his sleep improved and very quickly learnt to self settle and now if he wakes he quickly goes back to sleep on his own. I couldn't believe how quickly his sleep pattern changed with the sleepyhead grand, it was a matter of days. He looks a lot more cosy in his cot now and I have also found it brilliant to put in his travel cot as well when we go away. This is a great quality product and definitely helps with sleep routines and is portable enough to take away on holiday . Highly recommend . I just wish I bought it sooner.

A must have
Some words I would use to describe this this product are genius, magical, practical, comfortable, luxurious, quality and LIFE SAVING. I presume a product made by a mum for mums!
I say genius as like others, my baby would not settle in a Moses basket, after 8 weeks of uninterrupted sleep, mostly on the hour every hour, I reached sheer desperation and bought what seemed an expensive baby bed, the Sleepyhead Deluxe. It was worth every penny and my baby slept like a dream and I got my sanity back. Six months on and to my despair my baby had outgrown his pod but thankfully the designer had launched a bigger version, Grand size. I couldn't believe how excited/relieved a baby bed was making me! The Grand is every bit as quality as the Deluxe pod and my baby absolutely LOVES it. He snuggles his head up to the side, it's super cosy and although he can't tell me I know he's content, happy, peaceful and warm in his bed, much more so than he could ever have been in a cot.
The pod is also very practical, the material is hard wearing and I suspect it will last my little boy easily up to the 36 month mark. It washes well and can be dried on a low setting in the tumble dryer. It is extremely transportable, making holiday sleeping arrangements a synch with no bed hopping needed.
I recommend this product to anyone who will listen to me. If I could only have bought one baby product on the market this bed would have been it, hands down.

I bought this a few weeks ago as our little boy had grown out of the smaller sleepyhead (he's only 4 months but big for his age). We chose to upgrade as he sleeps on a cot wedge, to combat reflux, and the sleepyhead stops him ending up in a heap at the bottom of the cot. After just two daytime naps he got used to his new bed and has slept like an absolute dream ever since, we are now averaging 12 hours a night which is truly fantastic and he wakes every morning with a huge smile. It may be a bit pricey, but he is clearly very comfortable and a good nights sleep all round is priceless, I would highly recommend!

Mums and Dads! If you are browsing reviews trying to decide if the grand pod is worth the money then look no further. Get your credit card out and buy yourself some well-deserved peaceful sleep! We were lucky enough to produce a wee man who slept most of the night from an early age. We were gutted (and exhausted) when he started waking several times through the night when we moved him into the big boy cot. He seemed a bit lost and rolled around so much he woke himself up often with a leg stuck through the bars or his face squashed against the bumpers. After lots of rocking, nursing and pacing he more often than not ended up in our bed snuggled between our pillows and slept soundly all night. This was ok for a while but eventually we decided we had to do something or he would still be there when he was ready for school! I trawled the internet trying to find something that would make him more comfy, to give him the security of thinking we were nearby. I stumbled upon the Sleepyhead Grand. As it is a relatively new product, I had to rely on the reviews of the smaller version but I thought it may just be the answer to our problems! We had to wait a few weeks for stock to arrive in the UK but it was worth every minute. The first night our little bed companion was put in it, he slept soundly through to the wee hours and barely moved! The next few mornings we woke with a start thinking - is he still alive?! Not a peep all night! A very comfy well rested little man greets us each morning. We've had the pod for around four months now and it really has been amazing. This really is a superb product. The covers are easy to wash and put back on, it's really well made and packaged beautifully. I'm certain that it will stand the test of time. Sleepyhead = sleepy, happy parents

Sleepyheads are THE Best Baby Buy!!
We bought the Sleepyhead Deluxe when my baby was 4 weeks old with great hopes after reading the reviews online – and it did not disappoint! The first time he was put in it he laid calmly and went to sleep in it straight away that night! At 8 months he grew out of the Deluxe so we decided to buy the Grand. Again – it worked its magic! I’ve persuaded 3 of my friends to purchase them and are now converts too and just wished they had bought them sooner! It is the best thing we bought – we spent a fortune before the baby was born and in those first few weeks on cribs, cots and mattresses…only to find the Sleepyhead which is worth its weight in gold!!

Amazing product, worth every penny!
I first purchased the sleepyhead deluxe for my son which was the best purchase I made! Unfortunately by about 7/8 months he had outgrown the deluxe and I have thankfully put my name down on the waiting list for a grand but in the mean time I had to transition him into the cotbed which became a nightmare. We were back to waking several times during the night, taking a long time to settle for nap and bed times, I was exhausted and thought he would never settle. 4 weeks later I was informed I was one of the first 20 people to be able to purchase the grand pod and I didn't even second think it. When we finally received the grand it was a life saver! The first night he settled much quicker and only woke once but very quickly went back off to sleep, by the third night we were finally back to settling happily for bedtime and sleeping through again. Nap times became easier again and longer! He certainly felt so much more secure sleeping inside the pod. Finally we were all back to feeling rested.
My son is now 14 months and no longer uses the grand for night time sleeping as he likes moving around now during his sleep and removing the pod created more room for him but he continues to use it during the day to watch Mickey Mouse or just to chill out in while we read and look at books etc. I also take it to his grandparents homes when they have him and it clashes with nap times and he will happily settle and nap in it.
Both sleepyhead pods have really been my best baby buy and I would highly recommend any parent to purchase. The cost is high but for the quality of the product and what it actually does it is worth every penny. No price can be put on making your baby happier and feeling more secure while creating well rested parents.
