Sleepy Bear Review and Giveaway!



I am a huge fan of baby wearing. Even to this day when I see a mom with her baby snuggled up against her in a wrap, my ovaries start twinging. Sigh. So when Sleepy Bear arrived at our house, my kids had to wait for MOM to snuggle with this adorable toy first, and of course unwrap and re-wrap the baby bear, hehe. But then I played fair and shared. The boys, being boys, I assumed might lose interest quickly. But to my surprise, my five year old especially loves Sleepy Bear. He is constantly unwrapping the baby bear, and then doing his best to wrap him back in with his mommy. My son just started Kindergarten. One day after dropping my son off at Kindergarten, I arrived back home with my two year old in tow and started picking up the morning toy flurry. I found sleepy bear on the couch....but no baby. I searched everywhere...found the snuggly wrap...but no baby. My two year old helped with the search, calling out, but we did not find the baby. Later that day, when I was checking my son's backpack for school papers...voila! There was the baby bear...snuggled into a small pocket of the backpack! Aw. That touched my heart and so I left him where he was..a hidden comfort for my Kindergarten boy!

So some days I will see mommy bear with her baby snuggled tight...and other days, the baby will be missing (but now I know where to look!). So cute. Perfect timing for my son to receive a new "friend."

Sleepy Bear, introduced by NAP, Inc., is the very first stuffed toy to help promote babywearing, and is intended for children ages 3 and up. There are NO removable parts that could be potential choking hazards – the eyes, nose, etc. are all stitched on so that curious little hands won’t have anything to pull off.

And Sleepy Bear is made from the softest 100% organic cotton ever! The wrap itself is an Organic Khaki wrap, which is also available in full size for mom’s who love the color at: www.sleepywrap.com/organic.

The Sleepy Bear is available exclusively through the fine retailers listed here:

  70. That is SO cute! I'd love to win it for the surrogate baby I am carrying for good friends of mine.

    I love their wraps, especially one in a purple color. To answer the other question, just because! My twin boys have always preferred their "doggy blankets" (two blankets with dogs on them) and my daughter prefers her Hello Kitty pillow. All three prefer bedding over animals, haha. :)
