I love baby wearing. I love the snuggles, the easy kisses, the sleepy babies and the ability to use both of my hands. How about not having to lug a stroller all over the place? Ah, there is nothing quite like baby wearing. I had come across the Sleepy Wrap and wanted to work with them on a review of one of their Sleepy Wraps, but my daughter is 16 months old now(and getting heavy!) and they really are more ideal for smaller babies. I cant wait to see what other style of carriers they put out, but in the meantime, I was very fortunate to get to do a review of their Sleepy Bear. This has to be my favorite stuffy(what we call stuffed animals). My daughter adores it almost as much as I do. Have a looksie:
It is a Mama Bear(or Daddy bear I guess!), wearing a little baby bear in her very own Sleepy Wrap! How stinkin adorable is that?! I just adore how it teaches kids about baby wearing. I always say, you don't know how to do what you aren't exposed to. I was fortunate to be exposed to breastfeeding women and baby wearers, so it seems absolutely normal to me. I have run into women who think baby wearing is strange and who couldn't breastfeed and I often wonder if any women in her family ever breastfed around her when she was little. I love the exposure. In my mind, the more exposure, the better! In fact, I am so antsy to get to buy her her very own little baby carrier to wear her dolls in! I know she is still young, but I think it's adorable. So you can see how much I love this bear with her adorable baby bear. There is something so sweet about it and I am so glad to have this in our house! My daughter carries it all around! I need to get a picture of her with her bear asap.
Okay, so let me get you a couple of facts. This bear is made from extremely soft Organic cotton. It is intended for ages 3 and up, but my daughter is only 16 months old and drags this bear all over the place. She needs her own baby carrier to carry her bear wearing a baby bear haha! There are no small parts on this bear, so I don't quite understand why it is intended for ages 3 and up. The Sleepy Bear contains no pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers or any other chemicals of any kind! That is my kind of toy.
I can say this is the softest stuffed animal we own and it promotes baby wearing! The Sleepy Bear sells for $19.95 - a GREAT price for such a nice sized bear made from Organic cotton!
You can only purchase this bear from the list of retailers listed here.
