Being a mum of 3, and a business owner, house keeper, wife, I most certainly have my hands full. So having a house in order is a must. Having well rested kids is a must have. Well slept not only means happy babies it also means happy mummy and daddy. Trying to get a small baby to sleep with out being disturbed in a house full of boys is hard work. A startled baby is not easy to put down. So i’ve been on hunt for a product which is safe, comfortable and portable. Transitioning from the moses basket to a cot isn’t always easy. Now that my little one can easily get out of a well swaddled blanket, providing a secure and snug place for him to sleep is a must. And the Sleepyhead pods provide just that.

She studied art history at Stockholm University and professional photography studies and architectural education at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

RM: How was Sleepyhead born?
SH: When Lisa had her first son Ilias in 2006, she searched unsuccessfully for an alternative to the blanket, the cot, and the baby lounger, Lisa craved something more snug and at the same time more versatile and so developed the SleepyheadⓇ for her own child.
