I upgraded to this sleepyhead grand, after my daughter grew out of the sleepyhead deluxe. I was surprised at how big it was, however it is made to Last up to 36 months. It’s a fab product which my daughter will not sleep without. So it’s very comfortable and secure for her.
Negatives are the price! So so expensive. Also it’s around £85-100 for a spare cover. Which you definitely need.
The grand pod is a bigger version of the small pod but is just a cosy.. Its great for chilling around the house or for trainsitioning in to a big bed from a cot as the sides would keep them from falling out. The covers are easy to wash and put back on. They need cleaning often as toddler are more messy than a baby.
Wow what can I say my little ones loves there smaller one. So we got the bigger ones for them and they love chilling in them. They are easy to wash but need washing alot so would highly recommend the 2nd cover.
I spent quite a lot of time deciding whether or not to purchase this, as it was very expensive and there was no guarantee it would help! But we were having real trouble getting our baby to sleep in his cot and after lots of research this seemed to be what was suggested, and I have to say it has helped massively!! I’m not saying it has instantly made him an excellent sleeper (he hasn’t ever been!) but he is finally sleeping 3 hours at a time which is a massive improvement from the 1/2 hrs we were originally getting. He just seems much happier feeling a little cocooned rather than having all this space around him, I also think it’s warmer than going from my body heat to the cold mattress.
The only negative I would say is they are a little tricky to put back together after you have washed them, so I have started putting a muslin over the top so I only need to wash this! And I do still think they are expensive (even though it has been worth it!)
I was very much sceptical about purchasing the sleepyhead grand pod initially for my daughter after noticing the price point and attempting to unsuccessfully move her from a comfy closed in Moses basket to her full on big cot bed. After two failed attempts i knew i needed something that was guaranteed to get results so i did a few ask a friend and searched the internet for aids. I came across the sleepyhead but also felt stringed by the high price point. Well let me tell you it was worth it straight through the night she goes down and its washable and come with lovely covers to suit all tastes. its durable and travel friendly and safe and like a big cushion comfortable hug to my daughter. i can only fault its not affordable for all. but it does exactly what it is advertised to do for my very own little sleepy head.
