The Sleepy Nico carrier is very well loved, especially in Sheffield. We have the highest concentration of this carrier in the world!

Sleepy Nico Maggie

This lovely little carrier is a perennial favourite, as it is very simple and easy to use. Perfect for babies moving on from wraparound carriers at around 12 weeks.

We love the combination of the cheery prints (that all have names!) and the gentle corduroy padding that moulds nicely around the wearer without feeling stiff. Little people love the feel of the padding around the base for their legs, and their carers love the feel of the shoulder straps across their back. These flexible straps can be worn crossed or rucksack style, for front or back carries. Suitable from 12 weeks to toddler size.

This brand is entirely British made with a great deal of love. Why not add some matching suck pads?

We are delighted to include some Sleepy Nicos in our range of exclusive products; the Maggie, Libby, Savanna and Crush prints, for example.

The Sleepy Nico can be worn with cross or rucksack straps, as you prefer. Many families enjoy the simplicity of the cross strap option, where each shoulder strap clips into the buckle on the panel on the opposite side, having crossed diagonally across the back.

For younger babies the panel should support their body from knee to knee and up to the nape of the neck. As they get older and develop more muscle control, the panel just needs to keep them in a comfy M shape and reach up to the back of their shoulder blades. Bigger kids may enjoy arms out for greater visibility.
