Dreamland Baby

dreamland babyTara Williams seeks an investor for Dreamland Baby, her weighted baby sacks, in Shark Tank episode 1122, the season 11 finale. Williams created her product out of sheer exhaustion. Her fourth child, Luke, just would not sleep through the night. He was constantly fussing. One night, when he was being particularly fussy, Tara placed a heavy blanket on him and it calmed him down immediately. For the first time, Luke, and his parents, slept through the night.

That inspired her to make the first version of Dreamland Baby. Her mother-in-law helped her sew the first “sack” that became her product. The sacks are wearable weighted blankets – kind of a cross between overalls and a sleeping bag. The weight comes from poly pellets sewn between layers of cotton fabric.

Weighted blankets help babies reduce stress and increase relaxation. The weight is located on front (or top) of weighted sack only and is designed to promote back and side sleeping. It’s kind of like swaddling, but with a bit more gentle pressure. Soon, word got out and Tara was making them for family and friends. That’s when she knew she was on to something.

She took the leap and raised $24,541 on Kickstarter back in June, 2019 to get her business started. The campaign funded in 72 hours! Now, she sells them on her website and Amazon for $79. They were designed in partnership with pediatricians, NICU nurses and certified sleep consultants. Dreamland Baby exceeds all United States Consumer Product Safety Commission standards too. Tara likely wants a Shark to help her “blow up” the product. Will a Shark weigh in and invest?
