With October being SIDS awareness month, HALO SleepSack actively spreads awareness because SIDS was the driving force for this company to even start! During the month of October, HALO will donate $1 to SIDS Awareness for every new Facebook “like”. -
Sleep Safe Practices by HALO Did you know that 80-90% of SIDS-related deaths are due to unsafe 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.
As many of you know my daughter is expecting a baby girl in December-which we couldn’t be more excited about, but there is always a conern about SIDS. I was just elated to be offered to review the HALO Micro-Fleece SleepSack. I chose the HALO SleepSack Swaddle100% Cotton Diamond Yellow Elephant. The SleepSack came just in time for her baby shower in which she was so happy to receive. She can’t wait for little Melody to use the SleepSack.
