With the American Academy of Pediatrics now saying “no” to crib bumpers, HALO Innovations has introduced its own Safe Sleep Crib SetTM designed to create an attractive and safe sleep environment for babies.

The five-piece HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set 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.

“Too often parents ‘overdress’ the crib with quilt and bumpers, both of which can pose a breathing threat for baby,” comments Bill Schmid, founder of Halo Innovations. “The Halo SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle are the only things a baby needs in the crib to stay warm and sleeping safely, and the soft jersey sheet provides a snug fit on the mattress.

The new HALO Safe Sleep Crib Sets are available on Amazon and come in six patterns including pink, blue and neutral tones.

My Review:
I just love that HALO has come up with a whole crib set that is adorable but also really safe for all babies! This crib set is perfect as a gift for a baby shower or for any new parents. It has everything you need for a baby’s bed – even an adorably cute matching decorative skirt! With the crib set, you don’t need blankets, bumpers or other crib accessories! You can decorate your nursery around any of these adorable crib sets! I love the designs you can choose from – they have cute designs for girls, boy, and neutral designs – and they are all sweet!

Every new mom wants only the best for her baby. We want organic baby food, natural baby skin care products, the softest clothing and the safest toys.

Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service. They send you a box each month with 4-5 baby products (or toddler products-the boxes are tailored to the baby’s age!). I received an all organic “Fresh Start” box for review. My box included:

Green Toys Tugboat (ARV $14.99)
Dolphin Organics baby wash/shampoo & conditioner (ARV $8)
2 – Happy Baby Food pouches (ARV $3)
Pangea Organics lip balm (ARV $12.00)

That’s $48 worth of quality products that my step daughter is thoroughly enjoying. My stepdaughter’s son loves the tugboat. She had never tried the Dolphin Organics products so she was excited to try them, especially since they contain nothing artificial – only natural and organic ingredients. She commented that the baby wash/shampoo was gentle on Zephan’s skin and the conditioner left his hair so soft! And of course the Tugboat is a big hit with Zephan and his big brother Jayden.

Citrus Lane delivers a box full of surprises to your door every month. The boxes include handpicked items tailored to your child’s age from Birth to age 3. Sometimes there are even items thrown in just for Mom as well. The Founder and Celebrate the New Year with our all-organic Fresh Start box! Produced in partnership with Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff, CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World, the Fresh Start box features top-rated, eco-friendly products for your child — and a treat for you. CEO of Citrus Lane describes the boxes as care packages to help moms and dads on their parenting journeys.

Hydros is the movement to fight the water crisis worldwide and eliminate the need for bottled water. With $1 from every bottle sold, Hydros funds sustainable water projects to help the nearly one billion people do not have access to water. Meanwhile, your Hydros Bottle is designed for use everyday at water fountains, kitchen sinks, and bathroom taps here in the US. Get great tasting water on the go and never buy expensive bottled water again!

Before first use, you run cold water through the Hydros filter for 45 seconds and then your water bottle is ready to use. I washed out my bottle and ran the water through as instructed and then filled up my water bottle with cold tap water. It took about 30 seconds if that, to fill it up.

The Hydros bottle is so easy to use, and it filters my water leaving it with a great taste. The bottle is great looking, and I have been constantly asked by friends at work, this week, where they can buy it. It’s not easy to get great tasting water unless you want to buy bottled water, which ends up being quiet costly. I so love my bottle that Hydros sent me to review.
You can purchase the Hydros from their web site for $29.99 each. They come in blue, pink, charcoal, green and clear colors. (I have the pink). The replacement Hydros Filter is $9.95 and will last for up to 3 months.
