**********************

As new moms, it seems there is always something to worry about when it comes to our children's safety. From carseats to childproofing to chemicals to sleep...we want to do the absolute best for our children right from the very beginning...which is why I am very excited to share with you today a program that is designed to teach safe sleep habits from day one: the HALO Safer Way To Sleep Initiative!

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® Swaddle has become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Leading health organizations agree that modeling proper baby care in the hospital is the single biggest influence on how parents care for their baby at home. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.


For me personally, safe sleep has always been one of my biggest safety concerns as a mom. During the day, it's very easy to keep a watchful eye on baby, but come nighttime there was always that fear that something would happen while you were sleeping. To make it harder, there is so much information out there about safe sleep habits that it can be hard to determine which is most accurate. Do this, don't do this...all the information is extremely overwhelming for new moms to know what to believe! So teaching the safest sleep habits in the hospital makes perfect sense!! Unfortunately, the hospital our daughter was born at does not participate in the initiative, but we brought our own HALO Sleepsack Swaddle that the company had sent for this review and were able to use it instead of the hospital receiving blankets...and we absolutely LOVED it!





First off, it's absolutely adorable...I love the soft pink pattern and elephant design, so pretty! It was also much softer than what receiving blankets are, and don't we all want our little ones to be as comfortable as possible? But of course the most important thing to me was the safety! The Halo SleepSack Swaddle combines the features of a wearable blanket that are safest for baby sleep with the swaddling that babies love in those early days. Not only does this make them safer, but personally both of my babies had a tendency of kicking their legs out, no matter how well swaddled they were, they always managed to escape. While this wasn't a huge deal in these warmer summer months, it would be much better for winter babies!! And unlike some swaddling blankets I've seen in the past that have taken a bit of work to figure out, this was super simple to use. The sleepsack zips from the neck down, so there is no worry about baby being scratched by the zipper, and then the swaddle simply wraps around babies arms and attaches with velcro, making it super adjustable and easy! I love using our Swaddle Sleepsack Swaddle more than any other similar blankets we have, and already have another waiting in the next size up. Finley seems to love it too, and sleeps better when we use it...this is certainly on our top baby picks list!!
