Easier Diaper Changes = Happy Mom (Giveaway)

by Guest Contributor

I have three kids, so I know diapers. I even think I know some clever diaper changing tricks.

Yes, I’ve totally done the whole change the squirming baby on the floor so I can (gently but firmly) pin their flailing body down with one leg while removing and replacing the poopy diaper like a ninja.

But my third baby, little J.C., is giving this ninja mama a run for her diaper changing money. So when I saw that HALO Innovations has a new diaper pad cover that promises “stress-free diaper changes,” I was like, “SIGN ME UP!”

About the HALO SwaddleChange

The new HALO® SwaddleChange™ swaddles and soothes babies for stress-free diaper changes.  The soft plush cover fits over the entire changing pad like most covers, with the addition of a sewn-in swaddle wrap that helps parents keep baby’s body under control while he’s lying down.   “We know how beneficial the Halo SleepSack Swaddle is as a soother when baby goes to sleep.  Now we are applying the same comforting concept to diaper change,” comments Bill Schmid, founder Halo Innovations.

The Seal of Approval

I try to be an open-minded mama; especially when it comes to products that could potentially make my life easier. But I have to admit that I was more than skeptical about the SwaddleChange.  Yes, it’s been awarded the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Seal of Approval, but could it really control my crazy 10 months old?

Well, let me tell you, it has now been awarded this ninja mama’s seal of approval, too. I couldn’t believe how my little guy calmed right down when I swaddled those super-soft wraps around his upper body and arms. He actually seemed more interested in babbling and interacting with me than wrestling my arms away from his diaper. The SwaddleChange will definitely be going on my list of go-to gifts for new moms and babies.

The HALO SwaddleChange can be found at select national retailers and on Amazon.com.  Learn more by following HALO on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
