Review: Sleepyhead Grand Pod
(photo credit: our little boy, Ted, aged 6 months)

The Sleepyhead Grand is a fabric-covered “pod” marketed as a “deluxe portable baby bed”.

It has a flat bottom with a firm cushioned bumper around the edge that cocoons the baby.

The whole thing is completely breathable, the filling has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and the cover is 100% cotton and machine-washable at 60 degrees.

Babies feel more snug inside the Sleepyhead than being left to sleep in a larger cot or basket.

The bumpers make them feel secure, and like someone is close by – the same feeling they’d get from co-sleeping. The Sleepyhead can easily be put on the floor of the living room for baby to nap safely whilst you cook dinner, or set inside the cot for bedtime.

Ted used to refuse to nap anywhere but my arms, which seems a familiar story for many parents I’ve spoken to. We bought the Sleepyhead when Ted was 6 months old, and following reading the reviews on Amazon went with the advice to go straight for the “Grand” model (8m+) so that we got more use out of it.

We are now 2 months into using the Sleepyhead and it gets used multiple times a day, and overnight. So far I think it might be my favourite ever baby product.

Yes it is expensive.

However, at 3am when your baby is awake I think all of us would pay that for a good night sleep (and the cost is actually spread over many many months of good quality sleep patterns)

We have a cot-bed for little Ted and the Sleepyhead Grand fits well inside it. I would recommend measuring the dimensions of your cot before buying the Grand as it is quite long.
