Mother develops cribs for her daughter

About the solution

Shortly after the birth, Rose had problems in breathing and spent a week in Intensive Care Unit. Her mother Sinead thought that the cribs in which her daughter was sleeping weren’t safe enough.

“We loved how portable our moses basket was as we needed to keep Rose very close. But to me it didn’t feel strong, the handles in particular didn’t feel great, it was impossible to clean and the hood would not stay up”, the mother explained.
But what triggered everything was the period in which Rose was at the hospital.
“Community midwives thought it was newborn baby ‘snuffles’, but we went to the hospital and she was admitted. I sat up all night with a nurse helping her to breathe with a steam box”, Sinead recalled.
When Rose was able to go home, she had a tube called a central line in her chest, which helped her breathe.
Rose slept in a regular crib basket. According to her mother, the rustling of the wicker kept both her daughter and the parents awake at night.
“Something bigger than you kicks in. I realised I needed something to keep Rose safe”.
So she decided to create a larger, stronger, quieter and easy-to-clean basket so that as Rose grew she wouldn’t be limited on where she could sleep just by her size. This crib is wicker-less, the handles are stronger than most and hypoallergenic, with a hood that stays put.

After creating this special crib, and prototyping, the innovator founded, with her husband Adam, their own company – Shnuggle – in 2012. They produce and sell clever baby products.

Shnuggle won Best In Home Product Award from the Baby Products Association in 2013 and Best Cot Design at the Junior awards in 2014, can be used by all mothers who are looking for easier solutions to bed and bath time.
