Study shows...

"The Sleepyhead® Baby Pod represents a brilliant design that is specific in nature to stimulate an infant emotionally while having a strong influence on post-natal skill development.

Whether being used in solitary state or close proximity room-sharing, the strong porosity of the fabrics and materials used in the Sleepyhead reduce the risk of excessive perspiration for an infant as well as SIDS.

The Sleepyhead® provides a near-perfect environment for the infant to develop with their questing mind, moving on impulsive action in a safe environment".
