Today one of our 2022 Bambini Baby Award entrants has written a guest blog introducing the brilliant backstory to his Rockit Rocker baby products business as well as a fleeting encounter with Tom Cruise!
Nick (my brother-in-law) invented it in 2015 when his three-month-old daughter Abby always woke up in the pushchair when it stopped moving. He noticed this problem affected other weary parents and one evening had a lightbulb moment. He took an old printer apart, salvaged the motor and soldered together a simple control circuit. The resulting prototype worked and the very next day Abby remained asleep even when the pushchair stopped moving. Nick set about developing the prototype with help from myself and another friend and over the next couple of years we turned the original prototype into Rockit, a rocket shaped portable baby rocker that was launched to critical acclaim in 2017.
Our experience using a sleep consultant - Fairy Sleep Mother
had a mum use Eileen, from the Fairy Sleep Mother, who is a sleep consultant, to see how she found the experience, and if her daughter slept more as a result. She went on to win Gold in the 2021 Bambini Baby Awards! Here is her experience of the certified sleep nanny:
Why we needed a sleep consultant
On the whole, my 2.5 year daughter old is as good as gold, she doesn't whine and moan, she wasn't a cry baby when she was little, and we're currently going through the terrible twos relatively unscathed with just a couple of tantrums at home and none in public. However, this golden girl behaviour only goes for the day-time. Night-time arrives and it becomes a whole different story. We reached 2.5 years and in all honesty, we only had had 6 nights where she slept through the entire night in that time. On top of that, co-sleeping with us, late late late bed-times and sometimes 4am wakeups demanding the television.
I would have resigned myself to this behaviour, but with a second baby arriving imminently - I really had no idea how to juggle two kids who wouldn't be sleeping.
