How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
What is the Najell Babynest SleepCarrier?
The Najell Babynest SleepCarrier is a multi-functional product that can be an absolute dream during the first few months after giving birth. 🤩
It's a baby nest, carrycot, play mat, and sleep carrier all in one, designed for use from birth up to three years of age.
As a smart baby nest, it provides a familiar environment for your little one to sleep and play in, no matter where you are.
It even has an adjustable length so you can change its size to fit your growing baby.
The Najell SleepCarrier fits into prams as well, making it super easy to transfer your little one from home to pram and back again, all within the carrier and without disturbing your baby's sleep.
There are a couple of notable features - including an integrated harness for the carrier function and handles for rocking your baby to sleep - but we'll look at all of these in more detail in the next section. 👇
Najell Babynest SleepCarrier composition
Now that you have some idea of how to use the Najell Babynest Sleep Carrier, let's take a closer look at the composition.
Some of the most important features:
- It contains an integrated harness, practical handles, and fabric-covered buckles to attach the harness.
- It has a wooden plate under the mattress that provides a firm sleep space for your little one, even when lifted.
- The sides are made of breathable air mesh for extra safety.
Conveniently, it's also adjustable in length, ranging from 60 to 80 cm (23.6 - 31.4 inches). 📏
This means you can extend the length of the product to provide the perfect fit as your little one grows.
The main fabric materials are:
- Main fabric: 100% cotton

All materials used in the Najell SleepCarrier are environmentally friendly and vegan. 🌱

Can you wash the Najell Babynest SleepCarrier?
The Najell SleepCarrier is easy to wipe down for minor cleaning, but conveniently, it's also machine-washable if needed. 💦
We all know that babies are prone to accidents, so having a machine-washable product is super convenient.
Washing instructions include:
- Remove the stabilising board before washing.
- Wash the product separately in a wash bag to protect the buckles from damage.
- Wash at 40℃ with a high-speed spin cycle.
- You can use any baby-safe detergent but avoid using fabric softener.
- The SleepCarrier cannot be dry-cleaned or tumble-dried.
- Dry the product flat.
Najell also recommends vacuuming the product before washing it.
What else does Najell sell?
While the Najell SleepCarrier can be used as is, you can also protect the actual mattress by investing in baby bedding.
The brand sells a range of removable mattress covers made from soft GOTS-certified organic cotton, perfectly designed to fit the Babynest SleepCarrier.
Najell bedding is available in a range of colours, including charcoal black, daisy white, linen beige, olive green, peony blue, peony pink, soft lilac, and terracotta rouge. 🎨
In addition to the sleep carrier and bedding, the brand also sells a range of other products, including the Najell footmuffs, pregnancy pillows, and baby wraps.
We highly recommend sticking to brands specifically designed for tiny tots when choosing baby products, but you could steer away to more generic (and often cheaper) brands when it comes to items like pregnancy or body pillows.
These are also great to use for side sleepers, pregnant or not!
