Our Story

The idea of Tired Teddies came to me (Sam, founder) after getting kicked in the head in the middle of the night, far too many times by my four-year-old son. Often my son would not be able to sleep, so he would sneak into our bed in the middle of the night and make himself very comfortable by lying sideways. In one case he tried to relax, but something was in the way of his feet. So he kicked it. Hard. Turned out that something was my face. I realized I had enough of my son not sleeping well at night and me getting kicked in the head. Turns out, I wasn’t the only one. As I started talking to friends and family with young kids, I discovered that nearly all of them shared my wife’s and I pain. In fact, some of them hadn’t slept well in YEARS. Others told horror stories of their normally great sleepers turning into little monsters while traveling. I wanted to help all those parents and children who couldn’t sleep well or at all. The result of our pain was Tired Teddies, to help children and parents alike.

What is Tired Teddies?

An all-natural, non-habit forming, bubblegum flavored sleep aid, designed specifically with children in mind. We thought of teddy bears because kids always associate teddy bears with keeping them safe in their sleep. So why not give kids something they already know and trust?

Tired Teddies main ingredient is 0.3 mg of melatonin with complementary ingredients of chamomile, lemon balm, California poppy and Wild Lettuce. Our dosage of melatonin is the lowest you can find for children at only 0.3 mg. Most sleep aids are dosed at 1 mg to as much as 20 mg. Our sleep aid is dosed so much lower than our leading competitors because research has found that a child’s body naturally produces only 0.3 mg of melatonin. Anything dosed larger than that can leave children, irritable, groggy, less likely to sleep and/or nauseas feeling. We want to help your children sleep and feel refreshed, not make the situation worse.

Tired Teddies is especially helpful for children with ADHD and autism. Often these children cannot turn their brains off to fall asleep. Children specifically with autism frequently don’t produce enough melatonin in order to sleep or stay asleep. Tired Teddies is here to give those kids a little boost so they can wake up the next day rested and refreshed.
