Sleepytot New Zealand has been operating since October 2012. Fiona Bodee located Sleepytots after they were revealed in a frantic google search of ‘baby loses dummy during the night’. She and her husband were getting up during the night between 5-7 times to replace their 7 month old sons dummy. It literally saved their sanity. Fiona then secured the position distributor for Sleepytot in New Zealand.
Sleepytot New Zealand also sells white noise (Baby Sea Shores) and gift cards to compliment your purchase of a Sleepytot. They are also the retailer for Miracle Blankets, Lights Out Black Out Blinds, Snooze Shades, and NUK soothers and chains – everything designed to help your baby get to sleep and stay asleep.
