#Giveaway HALO SleepSack Swaddle US & Canada


When it comes to preparing for baby, that list of what to have in place can be a somewhat intimidating for a new parent. I can remember when I had my eldest, trying to ensure I was ready seemed like a never ending task. This is a issue that I again ran into with our middle child, but by the time we had him, I was a little more prepared in knowing what we would need. So you can imagine that after the second one, I had a better idea of what we needed when we were ready to start preparing for our third child. Now I am not going to say that I know what ALL is needed in order to truly be prepared, but as a mom who has been there, more than once and even more than twice, I feel that I can help others and keep that anxiety of where to start, down. One line of products that I have on my list for preparing for baby, that I see as a must have, is the line of products from HALO.

I find that starting baby off with the HALO SleepSack Swaddles, not only helps to eliminate any loose blankets while baby is sleeping, but I also like knowing that with the HALO SleepSacks, you get a wearable blanket that over 1,300 hospitals use and recommend. Recently I was sent a very adorable new Spring print from the HALO SleepSack Swaddle line, which will really come in handy for using to help keep baby warm and swaddled!

I like that the SleepSack Swaddle is easy to use and is also adjustable. There is also a inverted zipper to help make those nighttime diaper changes easier on parents. Then with the fact that the SleepSack Swaddle is machine washable, I can wash it along with babies other clothes. Making the HALO SleepSack Swaddle a must have item to get while preparing for baby!



With the Halo products, you find a line of products that not only provides parents with products that offer safer sleeping options for baby, but you also get products from a company that want the best for baby. They do this by not only having the products parents need, but by also giving parents and caregivers the information that can be really crucial when it comes to caring for baby while they sleep. In fact, the wonderful people from HALO have given me some great tips to share with my readers when it comes to caring for baby while they sleep:



Safe Sleep Tips
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 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.
  • Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.
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.
You can find more tips like the ones above, as well as other products available from the HALO SleepSack line, by heading to the HALO SleepSack site! Also, the wonderful people from HALO SleepSack would like to give one of my amazing readers their own HALO SleepSack or SleepSack Swaddle!

I learned that they not only help the baby sleep safer but also more soundly by preventing the "startling" effect from moving their arms. Interesting!
