My son put us through the ringer with sleep. He did great from 2-5 months and then it went downhill fast. He wouldn't take a pacifier. He threw his lovie out of the crib in anger. Nothing helped him fall asleep except the boob. Apparently my child is not alone. A couple of exhausted yet genius parents came up with a brilliant idea - the wearable lovie - and BittaKidda was born!
Basically, a lovie can be an amazing sleep aid that children learn to use to sooth and calm themselves. But a lose blanket or stuffed animal can make its way across the crib becoming out of reach for the baby, can pose an increased risk for suffocation or SIDS, or can be tossed in anger out of the crib. So, BittaKidda provides lovies that are built into their sleeper or sleepsack! They also have clip ons for daytime wear. So awesome!!
We recently got the BittaSacks for our 3 month old twins. They just learned to flip to their bellies so we had to stop swaddling them - making it the perfect time to introduce them to their new sleepsacks!
They're a bit young to really get the idea of the lovie, but when I put them down for a nap or for the night, I bring their hands to the little lovie swatches and they hold on to them for a few seconds. I think you just have to keep at it and they'll catch on eventually.
The BittaSack is a really unique product, and here are some features I'm especially loving:
