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.


My Review:

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.

HALO has several new Micro-Fleece designs be sure and check them out!

Family Newsletter » Keep your friends & family in touch with everything going on with your Family

After living in the Tornado capital of the USA (Missouri), and having friends who have had things damaged or completely lost their homes, I so appreciate digital storage so much more. I was so happy to review AboutOne, an online family management systems. My favorite part was being able to record my children’s immunization records, add memories of their past and my oldest daughter is getting married in October and I was able to record this on Aboutone as well.

When I first checked out the site I thought it was the cutest thing ever-It is going to come so handy for school this year, recording dates of all the different school functions my daughters will have through out the year- I tend to have a hard time organizing all the events that happen during their school years. I love the fact that it is an address book, filing system, and you can scan and file your household reciepts.

I listed below just a few of the things you can record and save about you and your family’s life.

AboutOne teaches you not only how to get get organized but they also provide a digital filing system , and what I am sure everone will love how to declutter.

Babysitter Instructions: Quickly print out instructions, emergency contacts and health/medical information you can hand to your babysitter. My daughter will so love this.

Home Maintenance: Keep track of your home value and all the work you’ve done on your house including contractor contact info and ratings. My husband and I can so use this since we will be putting a deck and a new roof on our home this year.

Health History: Use this as a “cheat sheet” when filling out that huge form at the doctor’s office-everyone needs this!

Caregiver Report: If someone is caring for a member of your family, this sheet will give them the pertinent health and medical info they need-I really like this-my mother is in poor health and the Caregiver report will come in handy.

AboutOne pulls all the important info together in one place, for college application, so you don’t have to, how awesome is that!

They keep track of Your childs volunteer hours so you can use them for grant or scholarship applications!

Get all your vehicle maintenance history in a quick, simple to read report! My husband and I need this since we just bought a new car last year.

Why AboutOne Was Created you may ask-well HERE is the place to find out!
