The Safety Sleeper
So we’re coming to the end of our safety sleeper trial ! And honestly there are no words. Anyone who knows Jesse knows he hasn’t slept since he was in the womb and running on 2/3 hours sleep a night had taken its toll ! As he’s gotten bigger safety was our BIGGEST concern as he was able to climb the banisters and the stair gate so when if he was asleep you couldn’t be !
We entered the competition over on my boy blue when Nicole Duggan told me about it !!! My bestie Catherine Rosneys sister won the prize and kindly offered it to us to try as we were desperate !!
So Robert from Murray medical brought over the safety sleeper and low and behold he was right when he said it was easy to fold up and assemble !!! It was up in twenty minutes and when Jesse saw it his eyes lit up !!! It was a bed tent !! 😂😂
We let him play in it before bed and he absolutely adored it !! Night one and two were tough Jesse would wake panicked so we let him out I didn’t have high hopes !!! Then night three came and he slept from 7:45 till 8!!! I woke terrified afraid something had happened. !!! Then night 4 5 6 and 7 !! All full nights sleep !!!! This has literally changed our lives and we’ve begun the process of getting funding to buy one for Jesse !!! ❤️ can’t thank Robert from Murray medical for actually caring about us and the situation we were in !!!! He’s quickly become a good friend and to anyone who hasn’t slept in 5 years !!!! There’s hope for us all ❤️❤️
As we near the end of our trial with The Safety Sleeper from Murray’s Medical it’s time to tell you all how it went.
I went into this with an open mind but sceptical as Andy has huge safety issues around bedtime. He takes hours to settle and wakes regularly. Andy is usually very hyper at bedtime so when Rob from Murray’s Medical said the bed can be very calming I chuckled and said “you don’t know Andy”
Day 1. We set it up in his bedroom at home attached to a large mattress. It was easy to assemble and my husband could do it alone. Bedtime came and Andy jumped in!! Lay down and loved it. We zipped him in and waited, and waited….. nothing, he was asleep!!!!! I stayed awake all night listening. He NEVER woke during the night!! Miracle, or was it a fluke?
Day2. Andy jumped in at bedtime, surely this would be the night it all went wrong? No, he slept soundly.
Day 3. Maybe this is not a fluke?! Andy jumped in at bedtime and settled down nicely. He chatted away to himself in his own little language and drifted off to sleep. Even when he did wake during the night he happily lay in the bed until drifting off again.
Day 4. We headed off on holiday to a house in Wexford. My husband easily took it apart and reassembled it in our holiday home. Again Andy settled each night and slept though the night.
The bed is easy to put together. The travel blow up mattress held well, only needing to be pumped up a little after day 6.
The bed has stayed in place and not budged.
I would advise a night light behind the bed as it can be hard to see in through the dark net at night.
I had no doubt this bed would be great for a small placid child at risk of wandering but Andy is a tall 6 year old, very strong, hyper and to date had broken every bed he had. I’m shocked how well this bed suits his needs. We are devastated the trial is coming to an end and we will have to give it back. We are working closely with Andys OT regarding trying to get funding through the HSE for the bed. We are aware if approved this could take more than 6 months, so reality is sinking in that we must give back the bed and go back to endless hours of jumping, trashing and dangerous behaviour at bedtime.
For anyone interested in trialing or seeing a demonstration of the bed please get in touch with the guys at Murray’s Medical. I’d highly recommend it!!! You won’t regret it!

Our youngest Adam is trialling the bed 1st. Went into bed at 8.50 and is snoring his brains out. Unfortunately when he seen the suitcase the bed came in he was convinced we where heading to Teneriefe for a surprise holiday. (If only) Bed was easy enough to assemble and no relationship was harmed in the making of a flat pack. 🤣🤣 For more information on The Safety Sleeper get in touch.
When we won the draw through Angelman UK to try the Safety Sleeper bed from Murrays we were so excited to learn more and trial Ruby in a safe bed. Prior to this loan we hadn’t wanted to purchase a bed as we didn’t know which one would be appropriate for Ruby and whether she would actually sleep comfortably and be happy in it. Due to the cost we knew it shouldn’t be a quick decision but didn’t know where to start. When Andy (from Murrays) delivered the bed we could tell straight away Ruby liked it. She jumped in and lay down kicking her legs and smiling. During the trial Ruby has slept exceedingly well and it’s cozy and safe for her. In addition, knowing she’s happy and safe means that we can sleep better as a family: which is essential with a 2yr and 4 month old!! We would recommend the bed to anyone. Felicity
Our beautiful boy James hasn’t slept in weeks and Robert brought us the safety sleeper on Friday morning James has slept well plus I can have bit of me time as James is safe it’s hard when your trying to function on no sleep I swear by the safety sleeper would highly recommend it to other family’s please contact Murray’s medical for a trial and see for yourself honestly will be the best thing for your child.
