Win a Baby Duvet Sleeping Bag for Your Little One (Giveaway)


There are many challenges that come with a newborn.  You know, little things such as keeping them alive since they completely rely on you for EVERYTHING!

It can be scary, right?

One of the aspects of caring for a newborn that had me constantly second guessing myself was my daughter’s warmth.  Was she warm enough?   I was constantly worried that she was too cold.  Swaddling her helped resolve that issue for a time.  We could wrap that little bitty body up and tuck a blanket over her safely since she was unable to move.

However, babies grow up.  Once our little one was no longer swaddled I was unsure of how to keep her warm.  I tried putting a onesie under her pajamas, as well as socks on her tiny feet.  Apparently, my daughter is a magician and her socks would somehow come off in the night and her small toes would be cold.

Thankfully, I was given  a Baby Dee Dee Sleep Nest to review.

Does that not sound divine?  Sleep nest.  The name itself sounds comfortable.  Not to mention it is described as “the baby duvet sleeping bag”.  They had me at duvet.

The sleep nest is designed to be used instead of loose blankets, which can be dangerous hazards for infants.  In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of baby sleeping bags since they are specifically designed to keep infants warm without the need for a blanket.  The sleep nest is basically a wearable blanket (with way more style and class than a Snuggie). Warmth and safety for the win!

I absolutely love it and so does baby girl.

What I Love About the Baby Dee Sleep Nest

1. Material

The breathable quilted material is incredibly soft and it comes in the most adorable color combinations.  I had such a hard time choosing just one because ALL of their selections are adorable.  They even have a version with a glow-in-the-dark zipper. My husband was a little bummed that I didn’t choose that one.

2. Zipper Placement

Speaking of zippers, the first thing I noticed and appreciated about the sleeping sack was the zipper.  It zips from the top to the bottom.  AMAZING.  No baby fingers can grab the zipper to pull it up to little exploring baby mouths.  Genius.  Pure genius.

3. Shoulder Snaps

There are also shoulder snaps if you don’t want to fight those wiggly little arms when it is time to get baby up and out of the crib.  I love the convenience. Whether baby girl refuses to bend her arms or is already fast asleep and I don’t want to move her, the shoulder snaps come to the rescue.

4. Room to Grow

At five months old, my daughter fits into a medium sized nest with plenty of room to grow.  If I had known of the existence of this product, it would have had high priority on my baby registry and I would have requested a small size as well for the newborn phase.

5. Arm Space

Yet another aspect of the sleep nest that has me drooling are the open arms which allow my daughter to self soothe during those night wakings.  Swaddling doesn’t leave the arms free, but the sleep nest does.  She can grab her pacifier or lamb, or suck on her fingers with ease.

With fall already here and winter knocking on our doors, this baby sleeping bag is the perfect item for anyone with a newborn, infant, or toddler who sleeps in a crib.

    I Have The Same Issues With My Daugher =) This Will Work Magic For Me A Size Medium Any Color I’m Blessed If I Win .!

  2. benita says

    The medium would be great! Any color would be fine. They’re all beautiful and I love surprises.


  3. June says

    We are having our first grandchild to be born in March, this would be perfect for him. I’d go with a size Medium I think.

  4. says

    Oooh, Heather Gray and Bubble Gum in large, please! My daughter is 10 months old and we just moved to a very snowy city. She won’t keep blankets on but MAN it gets cold at night.

  5. Brittany says

    I would give this to a friend who just had a baby, I would let her pick the size and color but probably medium in cookies and cream. Thanks for the chance to win.

  6. says

    If I won this, I would donate it to those who were affected by Superstorm Sandy in NYC. With the weather getting colder, many families are suffering from no heat, electricity and/or hot water. This would help one child stay warmer.

    The size and choice of color I would pick would be a neutral Dream Blue in Large so that they could put more clothes on the baby.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Dream Pink in medium is perfect for my granddaughter. Well she’s probably a small now, but she’s already really wiggly so I’m thinking my daughter is really going to need it when she’s a little bigger! :-)

  8. Mona Evanochko says

    My daughter is “Having a Baby!” … this would be so nice for my Grand baby… we will need a Medium and I love the Pumpkin and White. Thankyou for the nice Giveaway!

  9. Elaine Bolduc says

  10. Heather Mora says

    oo, great review! thanks Jenny, it really helps to know it worked for your little one :) I would LOVE one in Dream Blue (that’s the one you have, right?) in size medium!

  11. darlene says

    I love this – what a clever idea to have the zipper start at the top and go to the bottom, instead of reverse! Great idea!

  12. Amanda Starr says

    I like the Dream Blue in M, would also be awesome in a mint green for some reason I love babies in that color. Anyway thanks for the chance!

  13. Molly Bussler says

    I love these, they keep baby so warm in the winter, they always kick off the blankets and with this, you don’t have to worry. I like the cookies & cream in size medium

  14. Kerry Leenhouts says
