Sleepy Wings™ is the world's first innovative, easy to use sleep swaddling jacket that takes seconds to put on. As it only covers a baby's arms, it is ideal for all seasons and if your baby likes his legs free to move! When sleeping safely on their back, a baby's preferred sleep position is to have their hands up beside their face. Without restricting this position, Sleepy Wings allows a baby to comfort themselves with access to their mouth or pacifier to self console. Sleepy Wings prevents startling and scratching and all in all, a better night's sleep for the whole family.

Founder, Shae Tye, designed Sleepy Wings™ in the early hours of the morning during January 2010 whilst breast feeding. Deliriously tired over returning to her daughter's cot to replace lost dummies, Shae started to think through ways that her daughter, Alannah, could retrieve her own dummy. Objective: More sleep! It was summer and the concerns of overheating Alannah also made wrapping or swaddling dangerous. Shae needed to design a garment that would keep Alannah in her swaddled position, but also ensure she was cool and safe. Sleepy Wings™ simply allow an infant to replace their own dummy within head turn reach, prevent scratching, keep her cooler in the heat AND keep those wondering hands under control whilst milk feeding!
