HALO SleepSack Swaddle Review...


I am happy to share that I teamed up with HALO since this month is SIDS awareness month!

Did you know that 80-90% of SIDS-related deaths are due to unsafe sleep practices? During the month of October, HALO will donate $1 to SIDS Awareness for every new Facebook “Like”. 
I am excited to share my review with you of the HALO® SleepSack® Swaddle!!



The Halo® SleepSack® Swaddle replaces loose blankets in the crib that can cover your baby’s face and interfere with breathing. In addition to helping your baby sleep safer, it helps him sleep better, too. Its adjustable swaddle wrap immobilizes your baby's arms to prevent the "Moro" or startle reflex. And, it is the only 2-in-1 adjustable swaddle that allows for swaddling arms in or arms out for baby’s comfort and to ensure an easy and gentle transition to the SleepSack wearable blanket when it is time to stop swaddling.

 
  • 2-in-1 adjustable swaddle that allows for swaddling arms in or arms out.
  • Use over regular sleepwear to take the place of loose blankets.
  • Recognized as “Hip Healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
  • Inverted zipper for easy diaper changes.
  • Discontinue swaddling when the baby shows signs of rolling over or breaking out of the swaddle wrap.
  • Machine wash with like colors. Close fastener strips before washing.
  • 100% Polyester Micro-fleece 
I adore all of the cute designs for girls and boys they have! Not only are these excellent for a safe sleep but they are very soft as well. I think it's fantastic that once your baby grows out of the swaddling stage these turn into a SleepSack wearable blanket. The SleepSack is for sure a must own for that special baby. They also make a perfect baby shower gift. I got the ladybug design for my niece's soon to be baby and she loves it!

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.


Safe Sleep Practices...

ALWAYS
  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
  • Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snuggly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
  • Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
  • Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
  • Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.

NEVER
  • Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface
  • Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
