UPDATE: Congratulations to Melissa for winning an adorable Bitsy Sleep Bag. Be sure to enter this week's contest for the bebepod Flex Plus.
I’m always looking for new sleep sacks for Tazzy. It’s what she spends her sleeping time in I want her to be comfortable. One of our readers suggested we try out The Bitsy Bag. I contacted Mandi, the founder of Bitsy and she was kind enough to let all four MommyBeta’s test a Bitsy bag out.
The concept is pretty ingenious. It’s a crossbreed between a blanket and a sleeper. The Bitsy Bag has elastic on top, which secures the bag around your baby’s torso so they can kick, roll, sit up or even stand up without the blanket coming off. There are a few super cute designs in each of the collections for him, her and both. Our favorites are the Tiffany/White Sketch Circles and Turquoise/White Night Owls.
I wish they made the sleep bags in adult sizes because the fabric is so silky and soft - Although my husband commented that he was afraid that Tazzy would slip out of his arms. Both Tazzy and Mo enjoy the Bitsy Bag. The Bitsy Bag recently saved baby Mo. He was at the airport with Mommy and had the biggest “poo-splotion” (exact words from Natali), which went everywhere! Mo only had a spare top, no spare bottoms so Natali put him in the Bitsy bag so he didn’t hang out in just his diaper. Cute!
The bag unfortunately was a little too snug around Elle and a little too loose for Nic because he ended up pulling it off of himself and standing up in his crib. The bag is designed to fit the torso of most babies, however if it doesn’t fit your baby returns are gladly accepted within 30 days.
The fabric is thick and is perfect for winter or colder nights but would likely be too thick for warmer nights. There are two size options 0-6 months and 6-18 months ($40 and $55 respectively). I think the bitsy sleep sack would be great for newborns to lounge in during the day even when they are swaddled. I will have to try this with my No. 2 (who is not on the way). The Bitsy Sleep Bag also makes a great gift! Today, compliments of Bitsy, we are giving one of our lucky readers a Bitsy Sleep Bag (of choice).
