One of my best friends, Jill Jones came up with a brilliant mommy idea and created the Sleepy Bee. Jill lives across the street from me and fulfills orders right out of the Sleepy Bee barn, so I can tell you firsthand there’s a lot of buzzzzzing going around over there! They also have real bees making honey, and a chicken coop where Zoie’s new chicken, Happy lives laying her eggs!
I’m so excited to help launch their big Sleepy Bee day on my blog. Jill and her hubby, David with sweet baby Viv have been busy little bees getting their website and video up and going. I encourage you to watch the short buzzy video and see if you can spot Princess Zoie sleeping with her Sleepy Bee! Zoie made her acting debut in the Sleepy Bee infomercial airing today.
The Jones family donated over 100 bees for me to take to Uganda and give to Amani Baby Cottage to help the precious babies sleep sound. Sleepy Bee is going to Uganda in June!
Just for moms- What do you think about the Sleepy Bees- do you think it will really help your baby sleep?
BTW- 10% of every Sleepy Bee proceeds goes to Visiting Orphans (for the next 6 months!)
About Us (Jill’s Story)
While traveling across country I found myself in the middle of a long airport layover with my six-month-old daughter in desperate need of a nap. I dug through my bag for the sleep machine we use at home, then realized I needed electricity. Frantically searching, every outlet I found was being used by business travelers with laptops! I stood in the middle of that huge airport with a screaming baby thinking how wonderful a small portable sleep machine would be.
Out of that frustrating experience Sleepy Bee™ was born. I’ve found Sleepy Bee™ not only helpful with airports layovers, but it became my biggest nap aid in grocery stores, restaurants, malls, doctors offices, and even my nephews’ baseball games. But, my favorite use quickly became for transitioning my sleeping baby from the car to the crib.
We wanted to keep this product uncomplicated so Sleepy Bee™ is a simple, small, portable sleep buddy who fits in a diaper bag, a purse or even in pocket. My hope is to share with busy, on-the-go moms a way for their baby or child to sleep undisturbed.
Sleepy Bee™ is the first of many products designed for moms by moms. Check back soon to see what’s new.
Imagine having lunch in a busy cafe without disturbing your baby’s nap. What would it be like to move her from the car into the house without those tense moments hoping she won’t wake up? How nice would it be to put your toddler in his crib knowing he won’t be bothered by household noise?
