There is perhaps no time in a person’s life that they will be so consumed by sleep more than during parenthood — your sleep (or the lack thereof) and especially your baby’s sleep, because if s/he isn’t sleeping, neither are you! ergoPouch provides soft, comfortable, and stylish sleep pouches which help your baby fall fast away to dreamland, which in turn, allows you to do the same! They specialize natural and organic swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits, all naturally and organically made.
What’s more, they will be at the New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.
The nation’s largest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!
Tickets to the New York Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with a member of the ergoPouch team, Hilary Abbott, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with ergoPouch, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
At ergoPouch, we pride ourselves on being the reliable and trusted innovators of natural, organic sleep wear for babies and toddlers. We are an Australia-based company renowned for the design and manufacture of high quality baby swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suits made from natural breathable fibers including organic cotton, bamboo and merino. We offer a diverse range of fashion forward designs and prints, and our products provide for a safe way of keeping baby warm without the need for loose blankets in the crib. Our mission is to give baby a safe and better night’s sleep, and in style.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
ergoPouch was founded in 2008 by sleep deprived mom Alina Sack. Sack was inspired to develop the ergoPouch sleeping bag with her first son who was a challenged sleeper. Today, ergoPouch is a market-leading and award-winning brand in Australia and the company’s products are now sold worldwide in countries and continents such as New Zealand, USA, Europe/UK and Asia.
What are the most popular and newest products from ergoPouch?
Our award-winning ergoCocoon 2-in-1 baby swaddle sleep bag is designed to be both easy to use and difficult to escape from. The simple zip up design will keep baby snug and securely swaddled without the need for complicated wrapping. For those babies who like a little more freedom or are transitioning to arms out, the ergoCocoon has patented poppers in the armholes that can be used to convert from a swaddle to a sleeping bag.
The ergopouch Sleep Suit Bag is also taking the world by storm. This innovative design converts from a wearable sleep bag to a sleep suit with legs using zippers, making the transition from crib to pram or carrier an easy one. The Sleep Suit Bag is also the perfect choice for older babies and toddlers who like the freedom of movement, with grip pads on the feet for little walkers.
What sets ergoPouch apart in the baby marketplace?
All of our products are made using natural breathable, skin-friendly fibers such as organic cotton, bamboo and merino. Our fillings are also all natural, never synthetic. Our entire range is ergonomically shaped for hip development and has been officially recognized by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as “hip-healthy.” ergoPouch products are TOG (warmth) rated to suit every temperature and season and convertible for multi-functionality. Our products are designed to not only improve the sleep of your baby but to look good, too, in contemporary fashion forward designs and prints.
What can parents expect from ergoPouch at the New York Baby Show?
Parents can expect to see the full range of ergoCocoon swaddle to sleep bags and sleep suit bags including beautiful new styles making their debut in our Spring Summer collection. They will be able to see firsthand the multi-functionality of ergoPouch products and why ergoPouch is fast becoming one of moms’ most loved baby sleep wear brands.
