Like many moms, I struggled getting my kids to sleep. As babies, both of my kids were snugglers (great during the day.. not so much when trying to get them to sleep through the night on their own).
They loved holding a soft blanket or a lovey to soothe them, but it was unsafe to leave a loose, soft toy in the crib for a baby under the age of 1. When my daughter Olivia was 6 months old, I hit my breaking point. I went out and bought every sleep sack on the shelf - and nothing worked! I'm a safety first type of mom, so leaving a lovey floating in the crib with them, was just not an option.
That is when I was inspired to design the Snuggy Buddy, as a safe Wearable Lovey Blanket, with a securely attached gently weighted lovey, to help provide the comfort and safety we all needed. This provides baby both a weighted element (mimicking a gentle parent's soothing touch) and the plush soft wings to hold (tactile softness they needed) matched with a soft fabric for baby to feel wrapped in love. Add adjustable snaps on each shoulder and zippers down both sides, for what parents need - ease of getting your sleeping baby in and out and easy middle of the night diaper changes!
The first night she used it, Olivia (and all of us) finally slept through the night!
Thus, the Snuggy Buddy Wearable Lovey Blanket was born!
We are committed to not only helping Snuggy Buddy Babies sleep safely and soundly, but babies everywhere. So we have pledged to donate fabrics to Project Linus, an organization that makes blankets for babies in need. So babies everywhere, get the chance they deserve, to Sleep Sound + Dream Big!
