HALO_SleepSack_Logo

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_Swaddle-Change_Logo-300x75The new HALO SwaddleChange changing pad cover is the greatest invention since, well, the HALO SleepSack wearable blanket. Made of cuddly soft velboa fabric, it features an attached and adjustable swaddle wrap for soothing newborns during diaper changing, and keeping older babies’ hands and bodies under control while lying on the pad for changing. Fits most contour changing pads with elastic all around, and ample gussets for secure fit. Has openings for any changing pad’s safety strap; do not leave baby unattended.

HALOswaddle-change-300x227

I love how soft the material of the swaddle change is, very comforting for your little one. The swaddle allows you to wrap your baby’s arms securely while still giving you plenty of access to the diaper area. The swaddle is great for keeping younger babies feeling more secure and warm and prevents older ones from wiggling so much.
FEATURES:

Swaddles and soothes newborns for cry-free diaper changes; Wrap is permanently attached to changing pad cover and adjusts to size of baby; For older babies, keeps them on their backs and with hands out of reach of diaper area
100% polyester velboa; Machine wash and dry
Elastic all around provides secure fit for most contour changing pads; Buttonhole openings for pad’s safety strap
Swaddle wrap fits babies up to one year and beyond depending on weight; The swaddle wrap is not a safety belt; Always buckle your changing pad’s safety belt around your child before you wrap your child’s arms in the swaddle wrap
Only use the SwaddleChange with a changing pad that complies with ASTM Standard F2388; Do not allow the swaddle wrap to cover your baby’s face; Do not use as a sleep aid; Never leave your child unattended while using this product

SwaddleChange can be purchased on Amazon, Target.com, Babiesrus.com, and other national retailers.
