With the cold weather approaching I was glad when I was asked to review the HALO Sleepsack on my 9 month old son. They say with infants not to lay them to sleep with anything else in their cribs, not even blankets, and always on their backs. I am always looking for comfy ways to keep him warm because I tend to keep our home at a cool temperature. This is a great way to keep your baby warm without having to worry about suffocation.
The HALO Sleep Sack is a wearable blanket for babies so they are safe while they sleep. It comes in various sizes, colors, materials and even with the swaddle for newborns. With October being National SIDS Awareness month this is a perfect gift for moms to be and moms with infants. The second I put this on Grayson he was yawning and smiling. He loves being wrapped in a comfy blankey so being able to wear one that won’t come undone was heaven to him. He had room to play with his big sister and move around in it as well as sleep comfortably. This design I got is exclusive to BuyBuyBaby.com, you can head over there to check out all the adroable patterns and designs available.
He slept comfortably only waking to nurse minimal times the first night he slept in it. Its so easy to slip him into it because it zips from the top to bottom not bottom to top like most zippered items. This way there is no zipper that could be rubbing against his neck or chin. I wish they had this around when my oldest son was an infant honestly.
SO since October is National SIDS Awareness Month I am going to add some safe sleep practices!
- 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 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.
“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 SafeSleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.”
