We bought this for our 3 week old son as he would only fall asleep while being cuddled / in his swing. The crib was too open for him to feel secure. The first night we used the sleepyhead he went down no problems...Life saver. He is now 6 weeks old, we have used this every night in the snuzpod and he has slept average from 11pm - 5pm! If you are unsure whether to purchase due to price - buy it! You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pickleplum An absolute must have
I cannot recommend this product highly enough and its the one item amongst all the new baby paraphernalia that you buy, that really is worth it.
Our baby was only 4 lbs when she was born and she looked so tiny in her bed side cot and wouldn't sleep or settle in the hospital or at home. The sleepyhead changed all that and made her feel secure. She slept through the night from 4 months old and we haven't looked back. We love that the sleepyhead is portable and we had it downstairs on the kitchen table in the very early days as she was totally secure in it. We took it on holiday and to the grandparents' house. Our little girl slept happily in a strange cot and room because she was in her familiar sleepyhead. It washes well and dries quickly - whats not to love?!
We have now purchased the next size up and love it just as much.

I heard about the miracle that is the Sleepyhead via an online breastfeeding support group I am a member of.
My son would only sleep in my arms and cried the moment we laid him flat in his bedside crib. The mattress wasn't very thick and I think he didn't like being in a large space. He slept very well when in hospital as the nurse created an enclosed area inside the large cot with a rolled up blanket - I didn't feel comfortable doing that at home due to the risk of loose bedding and so, after reading the reviews on the John Lewis site about how amazing the sleepyhead was, I was completely sold that this item was going to allow me to sleep again! I was not disappointed! Within a week of sleeping in the Sleepyhead night times suddenly became much happier for all of us! He settled very happily in it and stayed content all night! (We placed it on top of his crib mattress in the Troll bedside crib, pushed up to our bed which worked perfectly.)
It has also been invaluable to transport to relatives houses - no need for travel cots, this has been the length of the country with us and provides a familiar sleeping environment for our little one. I honestly can't rate this item enough - my sister in law and a friend have also bought one after my recommendation! My son fitted in the sleepyhead deluxe until he was just over 8 months and we then moved him into his cotbed. We lasted about a week of sleepless nights like that before I bought the sleepyhead grand, and hey presto, the sleepyhead does it again! Back to peaceful nighttimes for us all. If in any doubt, BUY ONE! You will not regret it!

My son suffered badly with reflux and refused to sleep unless he was in our arms. After a couple of weeks with zero sleep a friend recommended the Sleepyhead and I am so grateful for that! While it isn't a cheap solution it was worth every penny! From the first time our son slept in it, he actually slept!
Within weeks we had a baby who slept 12 hours every single night. We have recommended to three other friends - all of whom have had the same sort of experience.
If you have a baby who needs to be cuddled to sleep the Sleepyhead could be your answer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RainyDay15 My essential baby item
Before baby was born I really wanted to find a way we could co-sleep, to get all the benefits, whilst knowing that he was safe. On discovering the Sleepyhead I knew this was the answer for us. He is 9 weeks old now and sleeps really well in his Sleepyhead next to me in bed. I love how I can rest me head on the side of the pod to be so close to him but also stretch out knowing that he is safe. I also love how it cossets him and makes him feel secure.
We live between two countries and also travel a lot so it really easy to take with us and not have to worry about having a cot set up somewhere for him. It has also been great so far for tummy time which has helped him learn to raise his head himself.
Another reason why I am so glad we bought the Sleepyhead was that I ended up having a cesarean and would not have coped at all having to get out of bed throughout the night to feed him – I just lifted him out whilst lying down and fed him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Torjus Amazing - she sleeps!
"A week after the birth of my daughter I discovered the sleepyhead. I debated whether or not to buy it as I thought it was too pricy.
My little one sleeps great during the day in her moses basket, but at night I am lucky to get an hour sleep. So I finally decided to take the chance on the sleepyhead deluxe. What a difference, she is so calm in it and I actually have to wake her for feeds!
In fact it is so wonderful that I just ordered the larger model as well even though I won't use it until she is 8 months. Worth every penny! Not only is the quality great, so are my silent nights.
Now I just have to get rid of that moses basket ;)

I'm writing this review with one of my very well rested twin babies chatting away on my lap! We first purchased a sleepyhead deluxe for one of our girls who was a couple of months old and had problems falling and staying asleep due to her startle reflex. The first night in her sleepyhead saw a marked improvement in her sleep, so much so that we went and brought another one the next day for the other twin. We haven't looked back since,
You can use the sleepyheads in their cots, on your bed, on the sofa, pretty much anywhere! Our two used to have their naps in the lounge so we were able to use the sleepyheads downstairs for a few weeks before they helped us transition to the babies napping in their cots. I still bring them down in their sleepyheads in the morning, they are so settled in them I'm able to get breakfast and get their breakfast ready while they chatter to their toys in their sleepyheads.
We also use their sleepyheads whenever we go away and always have a very settled nights sleep - I'm sure the sleepyheads make them feel like they are still at home wherever we are.
The extra sleep we've gained since we purchased these has been well worth the money we paid and we'll definitely be buying the grande in a few months time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Binky127 Fantastic,well worth the money!
My son loves the sleepyhead, I had previously bought a Moses basket and carrycot and he would not settle! He is very cosy and snuggly in the sleepyhead and I use it inside his cot. I know he's safe and secure so it gives me piece of mind. It's also great for using in the day for playtime too. I've now bought the deluxe version!
