At the beginning of November we had a safety issue with our Sleepyhead Grand that I wrote about. Since then I have spoken to Sleepyhead and they are investigating. I have been told that this hasn’t happened before which is reassuring.
As a mum though I would rather be told about this matter so I can do something about it. I wouldn’t want to take the risk of my baby getting into the hollow fibre and it ending up in their mouth again.
New vs Old Design
Below is a video of the Sleepyhead Grand comparing the new and old designs of the mattress. I think this makes it really easy to illustrate the issue.
A few followers have emailed me to confirm they have also been in contact with Sleepyhead and they have been provided with a solution. I’m really glad that Sleepyhead are taking this seriously and providing a solution.
The new design is great and completely resolves the issues I experienced. The UK distributor for Sleepyhead has also confirmed that all Sleepyhead products for sale in the UK are the new design.
This is still a fantastic product and one I would buy again. My daughter sleeps so well in hers and when we go away from home she had no problem adjusting.
I would advise you to check your Sleepyhead Grand mattress. You can simply stitch the pillowcase shut or put a sheet over the opening if you are worried. Alternatively you can get in contact with Sleepyhead directly by emailing them firstname.lastname@example.org
