Tranquilo Mat was founded by a mom, who is also a nurse and a nanny. Melissa Gersin knows what it’s like to take care of a sleepy baby that can’t fall asleep, so she created these mats that help babies fall asleep faster and actually stay asleep. Tranquilo Mats are designed to help the baby self-soothe, to reduce fussiness and colic, and that will help the baby transition to the crib easier.
And now, Tranquilo Mat will be at the 2018 Chicago Baby Show on August 25 and 26 at Navy Pier.
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family; $20 per individual. Children are free.
We spoke with a Tranquilo Mat team member about what to expect at this year’s Baby Show!
What should expectant and new parents know about your brand?
By mimicking the sounds and motions of a mother’s womb using vibration and white noise, Tranquilo Mats help babies fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. The mats can be used in the crib, bassinet, stroller, or on the go in a carrier or car seat.
What’s new (in the past year) with your products?
Tranquilo Mat is happy to announce we’re now available for purchase at Target, buybuyBaby, and Amazon. We’ve had tremendous support from our customers after our “Shark Tank” appearance.
What is your most popular product right now?
Our most popular mat is the Large Tranquilo Mat. It is best used for bassinets, cribs, pack and plays, activity mats, play pens and all those larger spaces where baby likes to hang out or sleep (and cry). Does your baby get fussy at the sight of a crib? Instead of bouncing up and down, try a Large Tranquilo Mat at nap time!
