September is Baby Safety Month! HALO® SleepSack® Swaddle Giveaway! - CLOSED!

September is Baby Safety Month. The great people of HALO SleepSack would like to spread awareness of safe swaddling by offering my readers a chance to win one of their SleepSack Swaddle blankets! We all know about the dangers of SIDS. I remember lying awake at night worrying that this could happen to my baby. With much safer practices such as putting our baby to sleep on his/her back, we are lessening these risks. A great way to lessen the risk of SIDS is to swaddle our babies. I am a huge advocate of swaddling! Little Sam was swaddled until he was at least six months old! I'm not one of those talented people who could swaddle just perfectly, so I always needed the help of a swaddle blanket. HALO® SleepSack® Swaddle blankets are perfect for wrapping up your little bundle of joy safely!

There are two aspects to swaddling safely: 1) Avoiding suffocation and 2) Preventing Hip Dysplasia.

Hip Dysplasia is one of the most common conditions among newborn babies, affecting about 1% of North American newborns (about 75,000 per year). According to a recent survey conducted by HALO Innovations, 82% of parents choose to swaddle, and swaddling improperly can lead to Hip Dysplasia or dislocation. Treatment ranges from wearing a harness or brace to undergoing surgery. These conditions can get worse with age and are linked to early adult arthritis and hip-replacement surgery.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging Pediatricians to watch for signs of hip dysplasia and dislocation and to warn parents not to extend their baby’s frog-like legs straight when swaddling. There’s a temptation to stretch the legs out and that needs to be resisted. They need to be able to straighten themselves out naturally and gradually. Parents should allow for room in the swaddle – or sleepsack – for baby to bend at the hips.

HALO’s SleepSacks and Swaddles are the only products on the market approved “hip healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.

BUY IT:

You can purchase your own HALO® SleepSack® Swaddle and other HALO SleepSack Products at Target!
