A labour of love

Behind each Sleepyhead baby pod is a thoughtful manufacturing process that entails rigorous testing, careful hand-sewing, smart Swedish design and lots of care.

Each Sleepyhead baby pod is finely crafted and created with every attention to detail throughout. Sleepyhead portable baby pods are a true labour of love from start to finish.

Inspired to create

Sleepyhead founder, Lisa Furuland , has gone above and beyond with sourcing the fabrics and materials for each Sleepyhead. Selected from only the top suppliers around the world, all fabrics are non-toxic - free from harmful substances. She knows it's of utmost importance to feel absolutely confident in the fabric and make-up of a baby pod.

All materials have been chosen to create the perfect micro-climate: which is to say that each baby will experience an ideal temperature while in the Sleepyhead. The airflow through the Sleepyhead is exceptional and it does not harbour heat. This is important to note, as overheating in newborns is a major cause of parental anxiety.

Says Lisa Furuland: ‘the wellbeing, security and happiness of our babies are the objectives and inspiration of my creation.’

Dedicated craftsmanship

The factory where the pods are made is based in a picturesque European town. There are more than 30 workers devoted to making Sleepyhead pods all year round. These talented workers pride themselves on their craftsmanship; carefully and expertly hand cutting, hand-stitching and hand-sewing each Sleepyhead baby pod.

Attention to detail

Small details, such as the strong zips and delicately plush zip pulls, were exhaustively researched and chosen for both style, functionality and safety.

Every single material and detail (fabrics, fillings, zips, straps, threads and buckles) are all Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class 1 certified , meaning they have been proven to be free of any harmful substances, including heavy metals and phthalates. Something sure to put anxious minds at ease.

Outstanding textiles

Our fabrics, which are all 100% cotton, have been woven and printed in Portugal, where some of Europe's oldest and most respected textile manufacturers reside. All production is governed by strict EU laws, which means that the conditions for the workers are top priority. We care deeply about our Sleepyhead products, and we care deeply about those that craft them.
