being MVP: SIDS Awareness Month with HALO + Giveaway! #HaloSleepSack

SIDS Awareness Month with HALO + Giveaway! #HaloSleepSack


October is SIDS Awareness Month and since the weather is changing, it is perfect timing to introduce you to the HALO SleepSack as an alternative for blankets. I want to share my thoughts on the HALO sleepsacks we received for review. My tots do not like sleeping with blankets during the night. I cover them up and they kick them off. Although it's been miserably hot during the day with temperatures in the 90s, it drops by nighttime and cools down a wee bit. We have been running the AC continuously throughout the day and night and I find Kenzie rolled up into a ball in the morning.  


When she saw the HALO SleepSack for Big Kids, she wanted to put it on immediately (even though it was daytime) and pranced around the house in it. It is easy to put on as you unzip and step in, then zip close. It's roomy in the body and the foot openings allow for movement when awake. The microfleece material is super soft and light, yet provides warmth when sleeping. You can wear it over sleepwear or without. Kenzie loves her new HALO sleepsack and doesn't kick it off when sleeping. She can easily put it on and take it off which is nice. 


Mason, on the other hand, was a wee bit reluctant to put on his SleepSack Early Walker which was odd since he carried Kenzie's SleepSack around the house on his arm like a purse for days (to Hub's dismay). The concept is the same as Kenzie's SleepSack and perfect for my little blanket kicker because he can stay cozy and flip around without being chilly. I also like that he can wear it while walking around the house once it becomes cold. Yes he is officially a walker, trekking around the house in a flash! 

  
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 InitiativeHALOInnovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.

A few Safe Sleep Practices from HALO:

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.

Buy It:  You can purchase the SleepSack Big Kids for 29.95 and SleepSack Early Walker for $26.95.
