Phoebe – (May 12)
The Sleepy Wings arrived yesterday – thank you for the amazingly quick delivery! 5 month old Alice went from a Wrap Me Up to the Sleepy Wings last night and slept really well. She even managed to find her own dummies all on her own! Cheers
Kate – ‘WOW’
THANK YOU! We used the sleepy wings last night for the first time and they were brilliant!
Our Sophie is a little Houdini and manages to get her arms out of the wrap no matter how well we think we’ve done it, so to not wake up to the scrape, scrape, scrape of fingernails along the bassinet wall. This morning was amazing!
She had such a great sleep, and so did we.
I will definitely have to get some more!
We love our sleepy wings!!! baby Lewis looks for them now before he goes to sleep haha, he is beginning to roll a little more now so I thought I should try and get him used to sleeping without them, but if I don’t put them on him he is looking for them and lies there with his arms in position ready to go – too cute! thanks so much for your wonderful product, it really has made a difference to our house and little Lewis’ sleeps and his mood!
Tina – Congratulations your’e on a winner!
I just wanted to congratulate you on a spectacular product. We bought our sleepy wings about 2 months ago and have not looked back! Our 5 month old daughter Hayley sleeps soundly through the night and retrieves her own dummy when she needs it. She is baby number 5 and we so wish these were out when our first 4 were born. Our only regret… not buying 2. I’ve just been back to your site to order a second set – I’m getting sick of washing the first one and waiting for them to dry before she goes back to bed again. We are telling all our friends with littlies to visit your site, no it’s not a gimick and yes, they must buy two of them. Congratulations again.. you’re on a winner!
Amber – ‘I love Sleepy Wings’
I just wanted to email to let you know how much my daughter, Cara, loves her sleepy wings. These are the best invention ever! I wish I found them earlier than I did- Cara was about 10 weeks when I discovered them and it would have saved me alot of effort with the wrapping/re-wrapping in the middle of summer. Cara is 5 and a half months now and when I dress her after her bath she immediately turns her head to get in the “sleepy wing position”. As soon as her wings are on she immediately settles for sleep. You are a genius. Well done!
Kaylene’s gorgeous twin girls Lily & Grace LOVE their sleep in Sleepy Wings!
“I just really like your Sleepy Wings because it allows their arms to be in the arm up position without the rest of their body being restricted.
I had been using the Wrap Me Up swaddles but these allow them to have the rest of their bodies free to move and kick and they seem more comfortable when they’re less restricted, and these will be easier to use with sleeping bags too”

‘Sleepy Wings I think I love you. My baby had never slept though the night until about a week ago when we put sleepy wings on her. After 2 days we had to go on a 10hr road trip, she slept in the car and slept all night in a strange cot in a strange house and cut a tooth as well’
“I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU… I’ve had my 4month old, Riley, in his Sleepy Wings for the last 4 nights, and each night, he has slept like an absolute dream!!
We use it upside down, and are having no issues with getting out of a swaddle, because we no longer need it, no scratched up face, and no startle reflex… Sleepy Wings are amazing!!

“Day 1 of using our Sleepy Wings and she is so happy!
Not one issue transitioning to them. She wears her Sleepy Wings over a short sleeve grow bag ”
“My son Julian Marcus has very dry and itchy skin on his face and head. He is constantly scratching and it was always keeping him up at night. I was at the end of my ropes when I saw the Sleepy Wings at the Baby Expo and I thought it looked like just what I needed. From the first night we put it on him he slept all the way thru the night, every mothers dream!! From that night on we always make sure we have a Sleepy Wings handy for him to wear. I have already placed my 2nd order for the next size up to make sure we all sleep well every night. When its bed time now, Julian actually puts his arms up in the Sleepy Wings position and thats how we know he is ready for bed. Its been a pleasure using this product, it certainly has been a real life saver for our family.” Rhonda Lettieri
“Jordan 10 mths … Sleepy wings is the only thing i have found that will stop my baby girl from scratching her eczema long enough to fall asleep during a flare up.”
“Vanessa 10wks loving her sleeping wings
Love my sleepy wings! Too hot in the day for wrapping and the sleepy wings in reverse are working wonders. Super fast post too!!!!!
Best thing we have brought!!!!!!!!!!”
“Sleepy wings are soooo good! Alice falls asleep much faster now, and easily made the switch from her winter sleeping bag to her summer one (or just wings alone at her nan’s warm house).. Big thanks!”
“absolutely love my sleepy wing. I only got them this afternoon but bubba has been asleep in them now for 3 hours!! Thanks so much. xx”
Sleepy wings customer review – Victoria Goodwin (New Zealand)
These may initially look a little odd but worked a treat for our 7 month old.
I put them on Tawa with his arms up so a very similar position to the ‘Wrap me up’ swaddle which he likes & he quickly settled into a nice 2.5hour arvo sleep! so a super pleasing result. They can also be used with arms down so would have been handy in the earlier months too when he liked his arms down by his side.
Tawa’s room is definitely getting warmer so the Sleepy wings are a fantastic cool alternative to swaddling in the summer months as their little arms are still reasonably restricted but their bodies not wrapped.
The dummy slots seem to work quite well too although he’s a little lazy trying to get them! once we showed him a few times where the dummy was and how to get it to his mouth he got the hang of it..
I’m yet to try Sleepy Wings in the car seat but sure they’ll work a treat, they slip on easily much like a cardigan & look like cute little Angel wings!
Our Sleepy wings are proving to be a great summer alternative to swaddling – we love them!
“I just want to thank you for coming up with such a brilliant idea! i spoke to you at the baby expo in melbourne and bought some wings. best thing ever! my daughter loves sleeping with her arms up and was waking constantly from busting out of wraps and swaddles. the wings are great on their own during the day and with a gro-bag at night. thanks again!”
“There are so many things I love about this product. It is versatile and it prevents the need for ‘re-wraps’ during the night. It is the easiest product I have ever tried for sleeping transfers from car to bed etc. Baby does not overheat even on the hottest of nights. I love it. It made sleep time a dream”

“Sleepy WingsTM is a product I have recommended to all my friends of newborn babies. I recommend giving this a try, particularly if you find wraps troublesome”
Del (2nd bub) Sydney Australia
“I think it is a great idea – a girlfriend of mine has asked to borrow it when I am finished with it. I will be recommending this to all my friends with newborns – a happy sleeper makes for a happy mum!”
Julie (1st bub) Sydney Australia
“Sleepy WingsTM is quick and easy to put on compared to muslin wrapping.”
Tamira (1st bub) Brisbane – Australia
“Initially I did have reservations as to whether my little boy would take to this product as he is happy being wrapped. However, as soon as I put it on him he was smiling and comfy and relaxed in it. It is an ingenious idea, and I hope that it is well received and widely used by lots of mums and dads”

“Even though my baby doesn’t really wake to retrieve her dummy, I would still recommend this product for babies who have trouble going to sleep. I have found it fantastic”

“Sleepy WingsTM is great for stopping my baby scratching me while breastfeeding”
Fiona (1st bub) Port Fairy – Victoria – Australia
“I loved using this new product on my son Marcus. During Summer he was getting really hot however he was a newborn and needed security whilst sleeping. Sleepy WingsTM secured him for sleep especially when out and about in the pram and car”
Amy (2nd bub) Sydney – Australia
“Great new concept that would be appreciated by every new mother especially those who have tried everything else to have a peaceful sleeping baby”
“Sleepy WingsTM are great for calming our twins. The minute we put them on they both giggle and smile away happily. They also stop them from fussing at feeding time. A great product!”
Robyn (Twins) North Shore City – New Zealand
“I was skeptical at first but after putting the wings on it definitely helps settle my baby. In the heat and with no air con, wrapping sometimes is not an option. So Sleepy WingsTM have been an excellent sleeping necessity”
Shelly (1st bub) Sydney – Australia
“Just thought I’d share with you, Scarlett lately has been a little monkey and not settling in her cot, only wanting to be cuddled etc, well yesterday I thought, hey I’ll try her Sleepy WingsTM again because she hadn’t been liking them but I wanted to try again, and what do you know, one happy, contented sleeping baby!”
