Sleep Well with SwaddleSure by HALO {A #2Cool4Drool Giveaway}

Welcome to the Too Cool for Drool Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Mommy Island & The Kids Did It
From August 31-September 14, hop along to participating bloggers to find great giveaways all about BABY, with prizes valued at $15+!!

If you've been following for long, you probably already know that we are big HALO fans in my home! Even in the hospital, we had my daughter swaddled and comfy in her HALO Sleepsack Swaddle. As she grew, a regular Sleepsack became a staple. These products were wonderful in helping our little miss stay warm and comfortable and most importantly, sleeping safely!

Today, I'm excited to share with you an all new product from HALO... the SwaddleSure by HALO!

At a price of $14.99, the SwaddleSure™ adjustable swaddle pouch is designed to compete with the SwaddleMe brand. Unlike SwaddleMe, the SwaddleSure™ by HALO is designated as hip-healthy by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, making it safer and more secure for baby. 

As moms, most of us probably already know about the many great benefits of swaddling, but here's a little recap:

The Benefits of Swaddling
After being tightly cuddled inside mom for nine months, it's no wonder that some babies enjoy being swaddled after birth. It makes them feel snug, warm and secure. Swaddling can help calm many fussy or crying babies and even help them sleep longer in the first few months of life. In fact, many cultures have been swaddling their infants for thousands of years.  Basic benefits of swaddling:
  • Swaddling is a great way to soothe and calm a fussy baby by giving him a feeling of security, similar to being in the womb.
  • A newborn cannot regulate his temperature as well as an adult, so swaddling keeps his body warm. (Just make sure that he doesn’t become overheated.)
  • Swaddling often helps a baby sleep longer because it prevents the sudden movements (startle reflex) that can cause him to wake up.
  • Swaddling can help a baby focus on breastfeeding, helping to keep his arms and legs out of the way.
  • Swaddling prevents a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails.
I loved swaddling my children as babies, and I love that HALO has come out with this other great option to help make it easier.

SwaddleSure by HALO versus receiving blankets
  • Perfect fit – SwaddleSure has large adjustable fasteners as well as a large area for the fasteners to connect ensuring a perfect fit every time. SwaddleSure also adjusts easily as baby grows
  • Resists breakouts – unlike a receiving blanket, the SwaddleSure has patented three-point fastening system that makes it harder for baby to bust out
  • Roomier pouch design – SwaddleSure supports hip health, it does not constrain the legs but rather allows baby to put them in a natural position and move as needed. Receiving blankets can restrict movement
  • Easy access to diaper – the SwaddleSure pouch opens up on the outside making it easy to access baby’s diaper without needing to unswaddle
If you have a little one, or a little one on the way, the new SwaddleSure by HALO is certainly going to be a must try on your list! You can learn more and see all the great products to help your baby sleep safely at the links below:
