Safe Sleep Practices from HALO® SleepSack® and a Reader Giveaway! #HALOSleepSack - CLOSED!

***This is a sponsored post,  I was given the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own!


October is SIDS Awareness month.  HALO® and I would like to inform my readers about safe sleep practices for baby.  I have three kids and with my first I wasn't exactly promoting the safest sleep.  Of course I put her to sleep on her back but my baby was surrounded by a blanket and bumpers that could have suffocated her.  Thankfully all turned out well and she is a happy and healthy 9 year old.  With Sam and Ava I knew more about safe sleep practices and DID NOT put bumpers in their crib or cradle.  I also practice swaddling and loved the products from HALO®.  Sam and Ava each had a HALO® SleepSack® and SleepSack® Swaddles.  This ensures that baby is warm, but the wearable blanket can't cover up baby's face.  Ava was born last November and she wore her SleepSack® every night.  Now we have the HALO® SleepSack® Early Walker and she and I love it.  She stays all snuggly warm and there are no loose blankets in her crib that could accidentally cause suffocation.  I love how her feet are still out so that she can walk around while I am getting the other two ready for bed.  She loves the colorful owl on the front of her HALO® SleepSack® Early Walker and so do I!


During the month of October, HALO will donate $1 to SIDS Awareness for every new Facebook “like”.

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have 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. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.

***Please practice these safe sleep habits with all babies in your care:

Safe Sleep Practices

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 snuggly 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
  • 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.
