Gonzales baby products maker to sell UK ‘sleep solutions’

Crown Crafts Inc., a Gonzales maker of baby goods, has a deal to distribute United Kingdom-based Gro Co.’s products in the United States.

Gro makes sleep products for the nursery, including Grobag, a wearable blanket.

Those sorts of innovative “sleep solutions” will be an excellent addition to Crown’s product portfolio, said Crown Crafts Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer E. Randall Chestnut.

Grobags come in varying degrees of warmth to keep babies comfortable year-round. Some Grobags also include a five-point harness that allows them to be easily secured in a car seat or stroller.

Gro’s goods will be distributed through Crown subsidiary Crown Crafts Infant Products. Those goods include Gro-swaddles, wraps that stay snug without snaps, Velcro or ties; thermometers; and travel blinds that block out light.
