Beds & Bedding > Sleeping Bags
When I was a kid, we used ''slumber bags'' as bedding on our bunk
beds, along with a regular fitted sheet. These were
essentially light, indoor sleeping bags made of quilted bedding-
patterned material. It was much easier to make beds outfitted
this way as opposed to tucking in sheets and blankets,
arranging comforters, etc.
Now I'm looking for something similar for my daughter's new
bed, but the several (linen and department) stores I've checked
don't carry such an item.
Does anyone have any ideas regarding a retail or catalog source
for Slumber Bags? Or perhaps there is someone out there who
could be hired (I'm in South Berkeley) to sew zippers onto a
pair of twin comforters in order to custom-make this bedding?
The Lillian Vernon catalog has sleeping bags that sound like
what you're describing, in a variety of ''themes'' (dinosaurs,
trucks, butterflies) and colors. They can be personalized with
the child's name, too. www.lillianvernon.com
You might also consider Land's End kids' bedding. Their sheets
are sold in sets with the bottom of the top sheet sewn to the
fitted sheet, and the comforters have fitted corners, so there's
less tucking and tugging to do.
I'd like to buy a sleeping bag. It will be mostly for indoor use. I tend to run *extremely* cold, so
would like a *really* warm bag, but I hate mummy bags.Can anyone recommend a store or
REI has a wide selection of bags with really knowledgable sales people. For indoors you
might be able to get away with a less expensive bag from Big 5. They have an OK
selection but the problem I find at Big 5 is finding anyone to help. Good luck.
REI has a terrific "garage sale" on the first weekend of every month where they sell
sleeping bags, tents, clothing, back packs, and lots of hiking boots. Many of the items are
slightly used, but the prices are GREAT! If you're a member, you also get a 20%
discount on top of the discount. Also, if you're in the store on Sunday afternoon, at some
point, the "sale" items are discounted even further, like to $10.00 per item.
Sleeping Bag for Daycare Naps
Does anyone know where I can buy my 14 months old baby who is starting
daycare soon, one of these sleeping bags that they take naps in during the
Any info is greatly appreciated.
Check out: http://www.landsend.com and search for "nap mat". Lands' End carries cute nap mats that cost $34.
They have little built in pillows and roll up to store.
I saw something great in the Land's End Kids catalog. It is called a Nap Mat and costs $34. They
also have soft sleeping bags that they call Slumber Bags, and those cost $69. Their website is:
I found a great lightweight junior size sleeping bag at WalMart last year.
It was the perfect size for my (then) 3-year-old, just red and yellow, and
has cutouts for his arms, which alleviated the claustrophobia some kids
experience with sleeping bags. I think I paid around $10 for it. His
teachers like it because it's just one piece and easy to set up. I like it
because it doesn't have any Disney, Mattel or Warner Brothers characters
