What do you do when your baby just won ́t sleep unless you rock, carry, stroll or drive him around? You pray there exists something to help you and the child. Or, you invent it yourself. That ́s what one desperate and exhausted Norwegian dad, Ståle Flataker, did.
Silas was born on New Year ́s Eve in 2015 as son number three. As a baby, Silas had problems sleeping and adopting a healthy sleep pattern. He rarely slept more than 20 minutes unless there was a rocking motion. So, his parents had to walk him in the stroller or drive around in their car. Day and night. Without the rocking motion, Silas would wake up too early or might not even fall into sleep.
On one of his endless trips out strolling, Silas ́dad Ståle came up with the idea to build an automatic baby rocker. The prototype of Sleeptytroll worked.Silas finally slept better and was happy. The rest of the family regained their energy.
Out strolling, Ståle always met a lot of other parents who noticed the Sleepytroll and wanted one for themselves. So, Ståle teamed up with an award-winning industrial designenterprise. After three years of development and testing, the Sleepytroll launched to the market in 2019.
