About

Happy Sleep Sheets: A zip-able compression sheet therapeutically designed for improving sleep quality

Hi friends! I'm Rachel, a Pediatric Occupational Therapy Assistant and creator of The Sensory Project. I designed the Happy Sleep Sheets out of necessity. My clients always ask me the same question: How do I improve my child's sleep quality?

I have always recommended Lycra Sheets, but no one followed through and used them because they were such a pain to put on the bed! The proprioceptive input they provide is perfect for regulating the nervous system to facilitate improved sleep.

I created the Happy Sleep Sheets to be easy to use, so that kids can actually put the bed together all by themselves! The design is tailored towards children with sensory processing challenges, as the top sheet provides compression, simulating a hug, which offers the perfect amount of proprioceptive input! This helps to organize the nervous system for improved sleep quality! 

Here's more research on Sensory Processing Disorder!

During the testing phase, I realized they solved many more problems than I originally planned! They reduce safety concerns associated with children falling out of bed, they are perfect for hot sleepers who don't want a lot of covers on but still require deep pressure input to sleep, and they are seriously so easy to put on the bed- just one step!

Non-Slip Elastic holds the sheet in place around the bottom of the mattress.
Non-Slip Elastic holds the sheet in place around the bottom of the mattress.

Here's the details:

-Easier to use than making the bed with regular sheets.

-It's so easy, that children can do it themselves in one simple step!!

-There are two components make our patent pending design so amazing:

-Non-slip elastic that holds the bottom sheet in place around the mattress

-Zippers attach the top sheet on both sides, making it easy to get in and help your child find the right amount of proprioceptive input for their unique sensory needs! It doesn’t matter which side of the bed they get into, just unzip the top sheet and have them climb in!

Children can use the zippers to find the perfect hug while they sleep.

-Made of breathable and durable lycra / spandex material that isn’t too tight, or too loose. 

-Easy to clean, just throw them in the washer and dryer like you would typical bedding!

-Sizes  available: Crib/Toddler, Twin, Full, Queen

-Color available: Light grey - gender / age neutral

-They are perfect for toddlers to adults!

-Beneficial to individuals struggling with: Sensory Processing Challenges, Autism, Down Syndrome, Restless Leg Syndrome, Insomnia, Anxiety, and everyone in between!

The Happy Sleep Sheet was designed by a therapist for exhausted parents. We thought of everything so you don't have to. It is not recommended for children under 2 years of age. The Happy Sleep Sheet is not to be used as a restraint in any way, shape or form. Safety is our number one priority -- children should be able to move about under the sheet and get in / out without assistance. 

Good night. Good nap. Good sleep.

Testimonials from our Beta Testers: 


As a mama to a child who struggled with sleep from the beginning, I can’t begin to articulate how much these sheets are a game-changer. As a fellow Occupational Therapist, I noticed that my three year old son is constantly seeking deep pressure and often needs it to fall asleep soundly. These sheets give him the perfect amount of compression, which allows him to independently put himself to sleep! He tends to run hot, so I love that these sheets will work for him year-round. Rachel, thank you SO much for creating a much-needed solution to so many parents problem - Quality and restful sleep!  -- Nekole E.


We LOVE our Lycra sheets! We have had so many sleep issues with our son who has autism, but these have been a game changer. For any kids who seeks sensory input these are a must. It’s as if he’s getting a little squeezed hug all night long. -- Angela B.

Our Story:

The concept behind our logo is to show the transition from overstimulation to calm. The waviest line being the highest point of anxiety, to the straight line being calm and organized. The straight line represents THE SENSORY PROJECT as a barrier to the outside stimuli.

Risks and challenges

As an Occupational Therapy Assistant, my job is to use my creativity to help children reach their fullest potential.
As a small business owner, I use the same creativity to problem solve, reach my goals and help others.

If we do not meet our goal with this Kickstarter Campaign, we will not be able to begin the manufacturing process, due to the large quantities required to place our order.

I need your assistance to share this campaign to all who could benefit!

While I'm a glass half-full kinda gal, I have to be realistic and unfortunately plan for the worst!

SO, I have taken that to heart and respect YOUR backing and support.

+ The perfect materials have been sourced.
+ Manufacturing has been secured.
+ Designs are finalized and submitted to the manufacturer.
+ Shipping costs have been estimated and calculated for worldwide shipping.
+ We've built a few weeks of cushion into the project deadline for potential unforeseen circumstances.

With any manufactured product, there can be challenges so I will strive to minimize them and communicate any changes to our backers in a timely manner.

We truly appreciate your flexibility throughout this process if any unforeseen challenges arise!

To do your part in moving the process forward, please answer the BackerKit survey that will collect your size and preferences immediately after the campaign ends.

Thank you for your support in The Sensory Project! We couldn't do it without you!

We are so excited to work together to help create confident kids, all over the world!
