Pajamas Protect Crotch From Sleep Kickers


TURRAMURRA, Australia, Sept. 13 (UPI) — An Australian father said he created pajamas with groin protection for dads whose small children kick in their sleep.

Hugh McGuinness, 45, of Turramurra said he submitted the protective PJs to an inventor’s competition that could see them wind up for sale on, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

“My son Cameron, who is now 4, used to sleep in the bed with us. Basically, I thought it would be a good idea to have crotch protection in case he kicks in his sleep,” McGuiness said.

“When I have mentioned it to other fathers, you could see the pain in their eyes. It can be funny, but it is painful when it happens,” he said.

McGuinness said he is considering creating a similar product for fathers who use a papoose to carry their babies.

“In that case, their feet are directly in line,” he said.
