Win it! Bitsy Sleep Sack

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).

Wow, it's really hard to pick one! :) I think my favorite is the turquoise/orange sketch circles. (though I also love the turquoise/mango boxes and the turquoise/white night owls. :) )
Our favorite bedtime story is probably Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown. But the little one is only 5 mos old, so he's not really expressing much of an opinion over the nighttime fare!

I wish this came in a size big enough for my four year old who LOVES to kick off the covers! This looks simple enough that he could get in & out of it for himself if he has to go potty at night.

My favourite Bitsy Bag design has to be the "Mint/White/Chocolate Paisley"

My favourite bedtime story is Robert Munsch's "Love You Forever"

I also love the circle pattern. My favorite bedtime book is Sandra Boynton's The Going to Bed Book. But anything by Sandra Boynton will work in my household :)

My favorite one (which they're all so cute!) is the turquoise/white night owls

June 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterThe Knapps

OMG!! My son is always kicking his blanket off in the night this is awesome!!! I would love the night owl one that is adorable. Our favorite books to read are Junie B Jones. My girls love listening to the silliness those books have in them

I love the white/mint/chocolate paisley. My favorite bedtime story is either Each Peach Pear Plum or Goodnight Moon. Oldies but goodies.

June 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMaura W.

I really like the Tiffany/White Sketch Circles, it has so many bright colors! We read Good night moon every night, but my husband likes inventing a story about a bunny with floppy ears and cute fuzzy tale. We then elaborate depending on what we did during the day, for example, the bunny gets to go to the store to buy candy and return home to share it with everybody. It never turns out to be the same story which makes it more interesting and Sofia loves it.

I like both on fb. My favorite is definitely the Pink/Red Merry Hearts

June 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMeghan

My baby girl is still kicking me from the inside, but I'm sure she would love one of these when she has to leave the cozy confines of her mama's belly. I think the night owl print (size 0-6 months) is the cutest! A bedtime story that has made me laugh is Adam Mansbach's "Go the f**k to sleep" (you can find it on youtube) although I'm not sure if I would actually read it to my daughter.

Liked you on Facebook! I like the Mint/White/Chocolate Paisley one, and my favorite story at this time is Guess How Much I Love You.

June 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLesley

I like on Facebook (Jason Rubio). My favorite Bitsy Bag is the baby pink and white paisley print. It's so girly and classic. My favorite bedtime story is King Midas' Touch. I like the moral of the story. Thanks for sharing.
