This giveaway is now closed. Check back on July 4 for the winner!

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

Today we’ve got another great prize for the little ones in your family. Baby Snap Sack by The Milk & Honey Co. are an ingenious solution for those of you who need to keep your babies warm. Whether you live in a colder environment or enjoy camping as a family, you’ll appreciate this nifty invention.

Baby Snap Sack’s creator is a mama who lives in the mountains with four little ones under the age of five. She designed the sleep sack when her eight-month-old son was the only one in her home who did not sleep under the year-round comfort of down blankets.

She wanted him contentedly snuggled in the softness of a goose down sleep sack. As she began to search for one, she discovered that there were only a few online companies making goose down sleep sacks, and each was designed to fit for no more than 12 months at a time.

She resolved to design one that could grow with him into the toddler years — and the Baby Snap Sack was born. It’s a beautifully snug down sleep sack that lasts from the newborn to toddler years.

Our family is going to Colorado and Montana next month, driving through Yellowstone in between. This sleep sack will be perfect for our newest little one! He’ll probably be the most comfortable one in our tent.

A Simple Mom reader will win one wild blueberry Baby Snap Sack!

  17. We live overseas and would love to go camping in Scotland! Our littlest one is only 5 weeks old!

  18. I subscribe to Simple Mom via RSS feed.

  19. We don’t do a lot of traveling in cold weather. But, in the winter, we do heat with a wood furnace that we let go out at night, which makes for some cold mornings. This sleep sack would be perfect for keeping little ones warm without worrying about them kicking off the blankets in the middle of the night.

  20. We have a fall camping trip planned in Michigan with my daughter who will be six months. This would be perfect for her!

  21. Sleep sacks are AWESOME. My littlest refuses to use a blanket, so this would be wonderful. I was just getting ready to try & find a bigger size of the ones we have…I’m so excited! It would be perfect to use all the time, but especially perfect for our camping adventures visiting family in CO!

  22. Family vacation next year!

My husband turns the heat WAY down at night b/c he gets too hot, but we can’t do that with a new baby this winter. With this, I would feel better about letting him turn the heat down. Hubby thanks you in advance. :)
