As a stay-at-home mom, naptime is one of my favourite times of the day as it is the only chance I get to finish things around the home or have some “me time.” When naptime approaches Nikki requests her pillow and “blanky” that she needs to have with her. This usually has me running to get what she needs as I need to seize the naptime opportunity. In my household it can be a whole production to get Nikki to sleep.
So when I was introduced to the OC Daisy Napbag, I was extremely excited to try it out! The Napbag is a double-sided fabric sleeping bag with an attached pillow and carry case.
OC Daisy was formed in 2007 in Orange County, California by Karen, a veteran mom of four and Lisa, a veteran mom of two (Bff’s and neighbors) with a mission to create super high-quality, durable, and unique products for families. Both of these amazing super moms worked tirelessly to ensure that an affordable and great product as the Napbag was available to all.
So how did they come up with the idea? Lisa stated, “It all began when a friend of mine asked me to make her daughter a custom sleeping bag that she could take to preschool. The school required her to bring a pillow and blanket if she stayed for naptime. As a seamstress I was able to design a sleeping bag with an attached pillow. I even took it to our local embroidery shop to have her name personalized on it. The sleeping bad was a hit at the preschool and soon all of the other moms wanted one for their kids. Karen, who I was teaching to sew at the time, saw what I was sewing and really liked the idea. Conversation began and that is when we began a partnership and created OC Daisy.”
After years of trial and error they have come up with the perfect Napbag with many neat features such as the attached carry bag, a variety of designs to choose from, crawl-in blanket sleeping bag style and a pocket to carry a special item your child loves. So now it is ready for the world!
So now it was time for us to try it out but first my daughter Nikki had to pick one and she picked the Candy Print Napbag. We had her name embroidered which we thought was such a great personal touch!
We have been using the Napbag for about four weeks now and we simply love it! It is extremely comfortable, cozy, and easy to use. Not to mention that it is easy to transport and store. In addition, cleaning is super easy (you just remove the pillow and pop it in the washing machine). It is also very convenient to have around and it can be used for naptime, sleepovers, vacations, and even for naptime at preschool. Sounds great, doesn’t it?!
Well, OC Daisy gets even better! As many of my readers noticed that I love companies that help the community. I was thrilled to see that OC Daisy partners with charities, preschools and other organizations to raise funds for issues related to women and children.

Nikki and I give the Napbag 5 ZZZZZ’s out of 5. We highly recommend this product to any family and this would make a great gift idea to any child! We have even taken the Napbag on our latest mini vacation and Nikki feels comfort when she takes it with her. Now I wonder if they will be making a Momma Napbag?! 😉
