Safe Sleep with HALO

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.

    My sister in law just gave me a co-sleeper for baby #2 and I have been thinking how cool a sleepsack would be. I have not used them, but I’d really like to. Thanks for offering this giveaway! I hope I win :)

    I LOVE their sleep sacks and have used them with both of my boys. I highly recommend them to anyone expecting a baby. I would love to win for my 5 month old to replace some of the ones I have that are getting a bit worn looking.

  5. says

    Halo is the first product we received with our first baby (almost 5 yrs ago) We loved it and bought other brands, but I still go back to the Halo Sleepsack. For our next baby I need to stock back up! Love them.

  6. Laura Love says

    I love HALO’s sleepsacks – they are a lifesaver! I love being able to swaddle my baby without having to use a complicated wrapping technique. Perfect for 2am changings.

  7. Julie Lynn Bickham says

    I think its a great and safe product. I have not had the chance to try it but I would feel really safe to.

  8. says

    I have a friend who is expecting, and I would love to win this for her! Sleepsacks are great!!! I used them with all 3 of my kids, and so much easier to change diapers with than regular clothes at night – in dim light! Thanks for the chance!!

  9. Mary A says

    Very cute and nice to know they are safe too. I’d love to win for my new grandaughter who will be making her appearance soon!

  10. McKim says

    We had a child die from SIDS years ago, so anything that can help prevent that is great in my book! Would love to win these for my little grandson.

  11. Liz Robinson says

    I think the slepsack sounds amazing. They are a safe option and I also love the story of the business. They seem so cozy!

  12. Ashley C says

    I love the sleep sack! We used one with my son and I’m planning to buy for baby #2

    I have always used sleepsacks with my babies and now I advocate using them for my grandbabies. I have a new grandbaby due soon that this would be perfect for :)

  17. Katherine Streetman says

    I loved using the Sleep Sack when my son was a baby. He was a small, premature baby but I could rest easy, knowing that in the Sleep sack he was not cold during the night. I would love to win this and give it to my best friend, who is expecting her first bundle of joy:)

  18. Andi S says

    I think the Halo sleep sacks are a brilliant idea! They are so much safer and look like they would keep the baby so comfortably. I love the swaddler best. It looks great because unlike a blanket, it won’t come untucked all the time.

  19. Frugaluser says

    I love halO sleep sacs and that babies can’t escape from them! I have tried other brands only to find my daughter waking up out of them and cold. I always worried he would get caught up in them when she got them off. With halo she has not been and to escape!

  20. Trasina McGahey says

    What a great idea! Nothing is more important than the safety of our babies! I love that someone else realizes the uselessness of a crib comforter too. Not only useless but dangerous!

  21. Darlene Owen says

    I love the idea that you don’t have to put a blanket on the baby that it is built in. It is so safe and durable looking

  22. Kelly D says

    I love the sleepsacks! My daughter is 2 now but I would like to win this for my sister in law who is expecting her miracle baby!

  23. Lyndsey R. says

    I love these! And I know baby will too! The Organic Cotton one sounds wonderful!

  26. Secret Burkheiser says

    Sleep sacks are amazing! My daughter slept more soundly when she had one on. And I slept better too knowing she did not have lots of blankets in her bed.

  27. Virginia Rowell says

    I love them. I got one for my grandson when he was born and it’s wonderful. Now a new grandchild is on the way and this would be perfect!

  28. Kelly W says
