The SkyBaby travel mattress was created by us, Rachel and Nico Arvanitis. As a regular traveller with her 2 daughters Rachel found that flying with babies was not easy. She was looking for a product to help create a comfortable sleeping environment during flights as an alternative to sleeping on her lap or in an airline bassinet on long haul flights. Identifying a gap in the market, along with her engineer husband she designed and manufactured a lightweight, practical travel mattress and launched the finished product in 2012. It is now available worldwide.

SkyBaby was finalist for two awards (2013) with the UK & European Baby Products Association: Innovation Award & Baby and Nursery Trade Award. It has received lots of praise from the mummy blogging community and is available in retail outlets around the world.

Our goal here is simple: Give families with babies more freedom to enjoy and experience travel. For the baby this means comfort and safety; for the parents it means products ergonomically designed to provide practical solutions with minimum effort.

What’s important to us? Not only do we want to solve problems to help families with young children, but we aim to give our products the design edge to enable you to step out in style!
