I want to tell you about HALO.
I have personally been a fan of their products since 2005, the year my first son was born. It was winter and knowing you can’t put blankets on babies, I purchased several sleepsacks. I had seen them at Babies R Us and fell in love upon seeing how soft and warm they looked.
HALO sleepsacks are a wearable blanket that is made safe for babies. It is designed to be worn over pajamas so it it sleeveless and zips up the front so the baby is still able to move his or her arms. Designed to replace loose blankets in the crib that can cover your baby’s face and interfere with breathing, the sleepsacks were designed by a father who lost his first child to SIDS.
When my twins were born in 2007 I put them in the HALO sleepsacks, as well as the swaddle. In the years since HALO has developed some other products to go along with their sleepsacks.
Did you use bumpers in the crib with your kids? I definitely did. Until the day I found one of the twins with his body half under the bumper. He was fine but it scared me enough to remove them from both cribs and that was it. The American Academy of Pediatrics now says “no” to crib bumpers (and I completely understand why)! In response, HALO has developed its own Safe Sleep Crib Set.
The Safe Sleep Crib Set is a five-piece set that consists of a HALO SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle (both in 100% cotton); two coordinating crib sheets in soft cotton jersey; and a matching crib skirt, which retails for $115. So much more for your money than purchasing the bedding sets with the bumpers and large blankets that you don’t even end up using!
With a variety of choices, you are sure to find something that will match your baby’s nursery. My Dog Sam in blue, Friendly Caterpillar in a light green, Serengeti Green, Serengeti Blue, Jumbo’s Garden in pink and Caroline’s Garden in pink with flowers. Check them out today! Even if you aren’t having a baby yourself this makes an awesome gift for a new or soon to be mom. You can also follow HALO on Facebook.
