About

The SkyBaby travel mattress is a product of Not Rocket Science Ltd.  We are a UK-based company established in 2009 aiming to simplify the lives of parents. Our concepts bring together form, functionality, and high-quality materials and turn them into unique and practical solutions.

They say the simplest ideas are often best.  Our ideas are born from experience.

Blue-sky thinking for families!

Not Rocket Science is founded by us, Rachel and Nico, a husband-and-wife team. We understand that life is about journeys – as a dual-nationality family ourselves, we understand why so many parents want to take a holiday earlier in a baby’s life (and maybe whilst you’ve still got some parental leave!).

Having a baby is a time of joy and discovery. Whether you’re visiting friends and family or just taking that much-deserved break, we want to help take the worry out of air travel with the SkyBaby.

As regular travellers with our two daughters, we found that flying with babies was not easy.  We were looking for a product to help create a comfortable sleeping environment for the baby during flights as an alternative to sleeping on your lap or in an airline bassinet on long-haul flights.  Identifying a gap in the market, we designed and manufactured a lightweight, practical travel mattress and launched the finished product in 2012. It is now available worldwide. Buy now.

It’s a big world out there. The SkyBaby travel mattress gives you the freedom to discover it together.

Upon its launch (pardon the pun) the SkyBaby was shortlisted for the UK and EU Baby Product Association (BPA) Innovation Award 2013 and was also a finalist for the BPA’s prestigious Baby and Nursery Trade Awards.

Since then, it has been featured in a number of top airline and parenting magazines all over the world. And there are hundreds of reviews by parents just like you – get going on that search engine!

Our goal is simple: give families with young babies more freedom to enjoy travelling and the outdoors.  For the baby, this means comfort and safety, and for the parents, this means products ergonomically designed to provide practical solutions within minimum effort.

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