As always all opinions are my own.}}}}
I searched high and low for a safer alternative and got nothing! We survived the blanket over the face phase and moved into sleeping head down into the mattress phase (and you all wonder why I drink so much chamomile…really?) At this point my son was phasing out of the blanket and into his stuff animal phase which we are currently holding on strong to (no pun intended lol)!
A few months ago while at my pediatrician’s office I saw a post card for Bitta Sleeper and thought it was a niffy idea as well “man where were you when we were in the blanket over our face phase” in my son’s sleeping habits. The Bitta Kidda brand is ready to start a sleep revolution for your entire family with the Bitta Sleeper (and upcoming Bitta Sack). It's a patented baby sleep garment and security blanket all in one. Now you can provide comfort and stay within the guidelines for safe sleep. The Bitta Sleeper is always in reach as your baby goes in and out of sleep cycles. Plus, as your baby becomes increasingly active in the crib, the Bitta Sleeper cannot be thrown on the floor where other comfort items always end up. It is the tool that helps your baby learn the art of self-soothing and independence in the crib.
I was invited to try out a Bitta Sleeper. Since my son only has eyes for his stuff animal I thought it would be best to let my cousin try the Bitta Sleeper on her infant son. At the time her son was about 5 months old. It doesn’t happen over night but after a few consistent tries (more like weeks), her son began to reach for the flaps even when not wearing the Bitta Sleeper! I highly recommend starting off with at least 2 Bitta Sleepers, but ideally 4 would be the best (in case of accidental overnight messes, spills & spit-ups!). You need to be consistent with it. Think of it like a paci. You wouldn’t try putting your child to help without a paci (if that is what he takes) so you should always zip your kid up in a Bitta Sleeper before nap or bedtime. After a few weeks, her son started to associate the Bitta Sleeper with part of their nap/bedtime routine. He could anticipate what was coming…first diaper change, then bitta sleeper put on, a quick story with some formula & off to nap/bed time! She is blessed with a fairly good sleeper (must run in the family haha) but it has happen a few times when he woke up and she saw him through the baby monitor reaching for the Bitta Sleeper tabs and after a few minutes! Success!

Bitta Sleeper was created by a loving grandmother for her then 4-month-old grandson, the Bitta Sleeper has been brought to life by one very well rested young family with 3 small children who love to sleep in their Bitta Sleepers! “Some great ideas are just meant to be shared, and this is one of them. Sleep Well, Mom & Dad!”
