My Go-To Gift For Baby Showers :: And I'm Giving One Away!

Bitsy Brand

Oh, do I have a treat for you today, Loyals. I have never been so excited to introduce you to a baby product since I first came across this fancy thing a little over two years ago. 

This is a Bitsy Bag

It's a traditional blanket and wearable blanket hybrid that is downright amazing. As a mom to a baby who very quickly grew tired of the swaddle very early on (we're talking as soon as we arrived home from the hospital), I hated the idea of having to struggle with sleep sacks and zippers and snaps in the middle of the night but wanted something extra to keep him warm and cozy.

I also couldn't justify putting him to sleep with a loose blanket over him and spending half the night lying awake wondering and worrying if he was going to smother himself. 

The Bitsy Bag easily slips over what baby is already wearing and is such an ease to remove and replace during those midnight or early morning diaper changes. For those moms who are transitioning their baby out of the swaddle this would be an excellent product to use as it still gives baby that "snug" feeling while keeping them warm and safe during sleep times. 

When they're smaller, the Bitsy Bag fits snugly under baby's armpits, still allowing them plenty of room to kick and stretch. As they get older, the Bitsy Bag can still be worn securely around their waist, still allowing them room for movement.

As you can see, baby can easily roll, kick, twist and even sit up while wearing the Bitsy Bag, all without the worry of it becoming loose and migrating towards their face. 

It also works great with car seats and isn't just for sleep times! I know when we take the crew pumpkin and apple picking over the course of these next few {chilly} weeks, I'll absolutely bring our Bitsy Bag along for the ride!

I absolutely adore all of the bright, bold patterns and colors used in the making of the Bitsy Bag and it has quickly become my newest go-to gift for all baby showers and new baby welcomes! 

Bitsy Brand just launched brand new designs as well as a collegiate line! Each of the Bitsy Bags are lined with the softest minky fabrics and are made by moms for moms. 

I have been in contact with creator, owner, designer and mom, Mandi, and she is just the sweetest. You can tell she truly cares about her product and the moms and babies who use it. I am so happy she reached out to me and introduced me to such a wonderful product!
