Something began to click in his mind. He
drew upon his engineering skills to design a
device that would simulate the combination of
motion and sound experienced in a car traveling
at 55 miles per hour. And he made the device
so it would work safely on the crib.
SleepTight is made up of two separate
units. The first, which simulates the rhythmic
motion of a car, weighs only 3 1/2 pounds and
mounts easily to the crib springs with nylon
bolts. No tools should be necessary for installation.
The second unit is the battery powered ( two 9 volt batteries )
sound component which easily attaches to the
side of any crib. It simulates the rushing sound
of the wind passing by a closed car window.
So SleepTight not only feels like a car ride,
it also sounds like one.
It's only necessary to
use SleepTight for short durations. And it plugs into any standard outlet, just as a baby's vaporizer and night lamp do. ( See How To Use the SleepTight ® Infant Soother )
Because this combination of motion and sound worked so well with his baby, the inventor wanted to share it with other parents of colicky or fussy infants.
But first, he sought to establish the scientific effectiveness of his invention. And what better judge of effectiveness than the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development?
