Every Christmas we make a special extra effort to get our CDs delivered quickly to customers like you. And her.
This year, we recommend you order your CD by Wednesday 18 December for delivery to the UK mainland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Wight.
If you’re in Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Mann, Orkney or Shetland please allow an extra seven days and order by Wednesday 11 December.
If you miss these dates we’ll still do our level best to get your order to you but you’ll understand the risks that go with pre-Christmas deliveries so please plan ahead if you can.
Sweet dreams, Stephen and Samantha.

Today we’re introducing a new way to get the soothing effect of little sleepyhead recordings.
Following requests from customers in the UK and around the world we’ve produced a selection of high-quality familiar household sounds as downloadable mp3 audio files.
Our new audio mp3s are simple to use and virtually instant to download.
Each mp3 file contains a continuous 30 minute recording of a proven, effective household sound.
Whether your baby prefers the dishwasher, the tumble dryer (like George) or the fan heater you can choose just the sounds you want and receive your downloadable files within minutes. Download today and be sleeping better tonight.
The high-quality mp3 files will play on a laptop, a tablet such as the iPad, a desktop computer and any mp3 digital audio player like an iPod, iPhone or Zune. You can even loop them for continuously soothing all-night background sound.
Loudspeakers are best
If you have a docking station for your mp3 player then you’ll enjoy the full richness of our digital recordings from its loudspeakers. We recommend using good quality loudspeakers to get the maximum effectiveness from our recordings.
There are six different sounds to choose from at just £2.99 each and each one has been recorded and produced to the same exacting audio standards as our famous and successful CD.
Do try out some of the sounds and let us know how you and your baby get on with them. We always love to hear great stories of success from our customers.
NB – you won’t need us to point this out but, just in case it crossed your mind, never put a mobile phone near a baby’s head and never put headphones or earphones onto a baby. That’s why we always recommend loudspeakers.
You’d be surprised at the people who need a little extra help with their sleep.
Adults, babies and children alike find the little sleepyhead CD can make a huge improvement to their sleep.
Everybody deserves a good night’s sleep so if you know someone who has trouble getting to sleep you can send them one of our CDs as a present.
Just let us know it’s a gift when you buy and, if you like, we can send it directly to them accompanied by a personal a message from you.
Very occasionally, our secure payment processor, PayPal, will indicate that you cannot use a particular credit card for your transaction.
This is a known issue which has been reported online widely but, for reasons of security we assume, has not been fully explained by PayPal.
If this happens to you, don’t worry. It doesn’t mean that your card is faulty or that your life savings have been hijacked by nefarious pranksters.
One reason for it could be that your card is associated with a PayPal account and in this case it would be easiest to pay from your PayPal account.
If you don’t wish to do that there are two other things you can to get around it:
1. Use a different card if you have one.
2. Call us on 0845 868 2414. We have other ways to organise payment and get you your CDs quickly.
This week the Royal Mail is raising its prices for UK postage by around 30%. Naturally, we’ve been looking at how this affects us at little sleepy head.
The good news is that we’ve decided to leave our prices exactly as they are for now.
It’s a bit more complicated for us than for many businesses because we’re based in Guernsey so we will be keeping a close watch on the situation.
We always aim to pass-on the best possible value to you but if you want to guarantee that you get your CD at the current low price than now would be an excellent time to order.
It seems we’re in the tabloid press, and for all the right reasons.
The Daily Mirror has compiled a special feature on sleep and has chosen our CD as one of its featured products.
Our website now contains samples of the four long soothing sounds you’ll find on the little sleepy head CD.
These are the sounds our test panel of NCT mums determined were the most effective at getting their babies to sleep and protecting them from being woken.
And now you can hear them before you order your CD on the home page of this site.
The CD was developed with help from a midwife from Guernsey’s main hospital and we remain eternally grateful to her and the local NCT members for helping us to help so many thousands of babies across the UK and beyond.
Thanks to you all.
August is usually a relatively quiet time for us at little sleepy headquarters, but not this year.
For reasons we don’t quite understand, this August is proving to be incredibly busy and our little fingers have been rattling through order after order, packing, posting and verifying addresses.
Sometimes we see an address we don’t recognise. Like Hawarden in Flintshire for example. Where on earth is that? we asked ourselves.
Turns out it’s in North East Wales and if Google Earth is anything to go by, it’s a beautiful corner of the British Isles.
So thanks to you for keeping us busy. In return we’ll do what we can to make your summer nights as peaceful as possible whether you’re in Flintshire, Farnborough, Fareham or Ecclefechan… and we’ll leave you to find out where that is!
