Sleepytot's Baby Sleep CD Wins Award
14 March 2011
Sleepytot Baby’s Sea Shore has won a Silver Award by the Bizzie Baby reviews website (www.bizziebaby.co.uk). The CD was given the award after receiving high ratings by parents.
The CD runs for 90 minutes and is designed for babies aged 0-6 months. It replicates sounds heard by a baby in the womb by playing a loop of heartbeats merged with sounds of the sea.
Creator Lucy Fitzgerald, who is behind the Sleepytot range, recorded the wave sounds at her local beach in Appledore, Devon. The heartbeats were added professionally by a nearby recording studio.
As far as she knows, the CD is unique. “I found CDs that played either heartbeats or sea sounds, but not the two together – which is more similar to the swishing and bu-dums that would be heard in the womb.”
After testing it on her baby son, mother-of-two Lucy added the CD to her range of Sleepytot baby sleep aids.
It is now stocked by more than 100 retailers nationally, and is sold through the Sleepytot website at www.sleepytot.com. The RRP is £7.99

The Great Toy Guide Awards Sleepytot Top Marks
13 February 2010
Sleepytot is more than just a baby comforter. Its clever paws mean a little imagination can make it into baby’s first and favourite toy, as well as the ultimate sleep aid. We know of little ones who add their linkies to the paws as well as hair bobbles, crinkly blankies and even little rattles.
So we sent Sleepytot off to the discerning reviewers at The Great Toy Guide.
We know these mummy bloggers are ruthlessly honest when giving their opinion on the toys they and their children test, so we did wonder what they would make of the Sleepytot Baby Comforter.
The good news is that Sleepytot bagged himself a top score – 5 out of 5 stars – and has also been categorized under ‘Recommendations”.
Here's what the reviewer had to say.
“It’s cute. Simple as that, and little ones can’t help but like it. It came really well packaged in a beautiful presentation box, and we enjoyed being able to attach it everywhere and anywhere! Since we have had our Sleepytot, we have seen Sleepytots everywhere – they must be the must have comforter!"

We never stop listening to your views and the views of all our customers. This helps us to continuously improve our products – which makes it easier for you to sell them! And one subject that has come up again and again is the need for a smaller Sleepytot.
Firstly, it helps us reach a price point of £9.99, which is perfect for impulse buyers. And secondly, a smaller baby comforter appeals to parents of newborns. Our small bunny is available in soft grey and cream.
It's a new parent’s perfect introduction to the Sleepytot brand. And as baby becomes toddler, you have an excellent repeat sale on your hands with Big Bunny!
Sleepytot Introduces Baby’s Sea Shore
4 January 2010
Ok. We know you have loads of CDs lying around in your shop. But this one is different. Developed to combine the soothing sound of nature with the comforting sound of mummy’s heartbeat, this CD will even help you sleep. Plus, it includes a handy baby sleep guide, written in partnership with the Millpond Child Sleep Clinic.
Here’s what Polly from Cuddledry had to say after she tried it with her colicky new baby.
“The CD is playing at this very moment. I love it too – I am sleeping in with her at the moment while she still feeds during the night and it relaxes me perfectly!”
