Sleepytroll was designed by Ståle Flataker, a father of three children. Silas, the youngest of the family, had trouble sleeping , he rarely slept longer than 20 minutes ... unless there was rocking. So there was walking and hours of driving around in the car.
As a "desperate" father, Ståle started looking for an inventive and safe solution. After months of brainstorming, development and testing, Sleepytroll baby finally saw the light of day!
Sleepytroll is an automatic, rechargeable baby swing with sound and motion sensors that you can easily attach to (almost) any stroller. But a crib, park or bouncer is also among the possibilities, with the help of handy accessories. But more on this later!
Ultimate sleep aid for every parent
Babies are used to that rocking motion before birth (from in the womb) and continue to naturally crave it long after birth. Sleepytroll aims to mimic that rocking feeling. Moreover, research has shown that rocking helps reduce crying, accelerate sleep and improve sleep quality. And ... that way parents have their hands free for other things. A win-win for both the little ones and the parents!
Sleepytroll can also be used as a cradle, bed or park. With the Bed Adapter, you can attach this baby swing quickly, easily and safely! Just place the Bed Rocker Feet under the legs and ... the rocking can begin! New is the Bouncer Adapter, to also rock your bouncer with the Sleepytroll baby rocker.
One of the many challenges of parenthood is trying to calm an inconsolable baby. Fortunately, there are a number of 'tricks' that can help! One of the best-known is rocking. This can, of course, be done in mum's or dad's arms... But today there are practical and safe aids available ... that leave your hands free for other things!
Despite the extra cost, we have decided to use NiMH batteries in Sleepytroll as they are safer than lithium-ion batteries because they contain less active material. When selling a product that operates in the vicinity of a baby safety is of the utmost importance. NiMH batteries can also be brought on airplanes, both in hand luggage and checked bags.
When not in use, remove the charger from the wall and store the product in a dry place out of direct sunlight and out of reach of children. When storing the product for long periods, be sure to charge at least twice a year to prevent deterioration in performance due to self-discharging and choose a storage area where the temperature is between +10ºC and +30ºC. Clean the product with a cloth dampened with water only. Do not use soap or chemicals on the cloth.
Is your baby’s bed already rockable by hand? Then you might not need the 'Bed Rocker Feet'. Is there somewhere to add the Sleepytroll vertically (important!) on the bed? Then you might not need the 'Bed Adapter'. However, if you are not able to rock the bed by hand and there is nowhere to hang Sleepytroll vertically on the bed you would need both.
The Sleepytroll should always be mounted vertically, as mounting it in any other ways will put excessive pressure on the motor. It is also important to tighten the strap, as the stroller/car seat/crib should be moving, not the Sleepytroll. Close charger port when charging is finished. Sleepytroll can be used in temperatures from -10C/14F to 35C/95F. Please read the manual for information on the correct storage when storing over time.
