As a mother, sleep is precious. An overtired baby can be very difficult to deal with on top of the usual demands of a little one. With life becoming busier once you become a mum – sitting at home to let baby sleep isn’t always possible. Doctors appointments, getting to the shops, and travelling with your little people on holidays can mean they are out and about in the thick of nap time – being overstimulated by their surroundings.
Fly Babee was created by Emma Lovell, a pop up sleep cover that attaches to all types of prams and strollers as well as airline bassinets. Fly Babee is made from 100% breathable fabric, and blocks out 97% of light and movement once attached. It features a “chance a glance” magnetic opening, allowing you to look at your baby without disturbing them when opening noisy velcro or zippers. Fly Babee attaches quickly and easily via simple clips, is lightweight and compact – housed in a storage bag which easily fits into hand luggage and your baby bag. An inbuilt pocket houses your smart phone, allowing babies favourite music to be played via your phones inbuilt speaker when in flight mode, assisting with soothing.
I had seen Fly Babee featured on Shark Tank, and was excited to review it. My first impression was how compact it was. It easily fit inside my handbag, opening and folding back down with ease. Fly Babee fit perfectly over my pram (City Select) in both the fully reclined and upright positions. The clips secured it quickly and easily. Once fastened, I placed my 11 month old baby in – the large openings on both sides made this easy, it would be simple to transfer a sleeping baby from the car to the pram with little disturbance.
The space inside the pram is very generous with Fly Babee attached – previous covers I have tried moved in the wind, or with baby kicking it with little feet – causing more stimulation, the opposite of what I was trying to achieve. Little Miss loved it – she was happy walking with it on, and instead of rushing home the next time she is due for her daily nap, I will be using our Fly Babee to ensure her much needed sleep is achieved.
