HALO SleepSack (Giveaway!)

CLOSED: Winner is Natalie M.

 Happy {1st} giveaway day! 

One of the very first items I put on our baby registry were the ever so popular SleepSacks and swaddles. A product to help baby sleep longer...who would I be NOT to try it?

HALO was the brand that I kept consistently hearing good things about from friends, family, other mom's-to-be (not to mention, all over Pinterest!), and once I read about them and got a few of our own I knew it was for good reason...


Not only are they cute and high quality, but they are so warm and help make babies feel secure, warm, and snug. Chances are you've heard how important swaddling is, but if you haven't here's a quick run down...

Swaddling can help calm many fussy or crying babies and even help them sleep longer in the first few months of life. They are also great because they can prevent a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails!

Here are some quick tips from HALO on safe sleep for your baby:
ALWAYS
  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at nap time and at night time.
  • Room-share, but don’t bed share; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend against bed sharing as it can lead to an increased risk for accidental suffocation.
  • Use a crib or bassinet that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly 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 (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
  • 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.

If you want a heads up about HALO's newest product (maybe to add to your registry or Christmas list for baby?), they recently came out with the Bassinet Swivel Sleeper - which is the only bassinet that moves to bring baby to mom as it rotates a full 360 degrees!

I won't be doing a product review on it today since I haven't actually got to try it out yet, but be on the lookout after Camden comes for a full review! I'm so excited to try it out, here's what it looks like...


Looks awesome, right? OK, enough from me. Time for the giveaway deets...

  13. We love the sleep sack! The best thing about it was it it really help sleep train Alex and gave us a great bed time routine. He knew that when the sleep sack went on it was time for bed.

    Also we kept him in it till he was almost 1 and a half, (honestly he would have been in it longer if he hadn't figured out how to unzip himself, lol), but it also helped keep him in his crib at night. He never had the footing to get out.
