about the Tuck n’ Snug family
In the early hours of most mornings I could be found crouched in the dark by my three-year-old son’s bed, trying to lull him back to sleep. The problem seemed to be his pillow and duvet, which kept falling off. He’d wake up, find it too difficult to wrestle the covers back on and call out for ‘Mummy’.
I assumed this must be a common problem and went looking for solutions. Strangely I couldn’t find anything that worked. Motivated by 1,095 consecutive nights of broken sleep Tuck n’ Snug was born.
I sketched the design, had prototypes made and ‘road tested’ them on the kids’ beds. Since then I’m delighted to report that I’ve never been wrenched from glorious slumber to locate pillows or pull up duvets. As a family, we are now catching up on years of broken sleep.
And so, the Tuck n’ Snug journey began. We would love to hear customer feedback on the product, so please email us.
The Tuck n’ Snug team – and their kids – wish you all a peaceful night.

Lucy Shrimpton, The Sleep Nanny®, is a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach who works with families to address children’s sleep issues. Lucy believes that sleepless nights do not have to be an inevitable part of raising children.
Tuck n’ Snug is delighted to welcome her as a guest contributor. Here she advises on the right age to move your child from cot to bed:
“I would advise that you keep your child in a cot until they’re at least two and a half years old. Little ones don’t actually acquire the cognitive ability to understand the concept of ‘staying in bed’ until that age. To be on the safe side, as long as your little one is happy and not doing anything dangerous like trying to climb out, I would advise keeping them in the cot until they’re closer to their third birthday.”
