Safer sleep with HALO SleepSack + Mom & Me event

When I was pregnant with my first child, I loved reading and researching about motherhood and all things baby so that I would be prepared once I gave birth. One of the things I read about was SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. I have to admit, I was really freaked out about this because apparently, SIDS claims over 8 babies a day and 2,500 lives year, making it the leading cause of death in otherwise healthy babies after one month of age.

Once Miley was born, I have to admit that I was really paranoid about SIDS so hubby and I would take turns watching her sleep just to be sure nothing bad happened to her. You know how they say you should sleep when your baby is sleeping and use that time to rest? Well, we didn't do that. ;p I swear, we were like zombies staying up all through the night just to check if she was still breathing or her blanket hadn't covered her face or something.

Well, I just wish I had discovered this product way back then - The HALO SleepSack®!

The HALO SleepSack is a wearable blanket that eliminates the risk of a baby getting entangled with clothing and loose bedding during sleep. It is worn over pajamas or a t-shirt in place of loose blankets that can easily be kicked off, thus ensuring a cozy warm and sounder sleep. HALO provides a practical alternative to loose bedding like quilts and bumpers, which are not only unsafe for babies, but expensive and difficult to clean. More importantly, it enables safer and sounder sleep, which is a pre-requisite for growth, learning, and brain development. With the SleepSack, baby sleeps better, so everybody sleeps better too! ;p
HALO is the only product to carry the seals of First Candle/SIDS Alliance and the Canadian Foundation
for the Study of Infant Deaths (CFSID)

What I also love is the HALO SleepSack Swaddle. Again, swaddling was one of the challenges we faced as new parents. When we were in the hospital, the nurses were so great at swaddling Miley and when they taught us how, it seemed so easy. But when we got home, she would always manage to kick her way out if it! No joke, we even watched Youtube videos of how to do a perfect swaddle haha! 

What's so great about the HALO SleepSack Swaddle is that it consists of an easy to use swaddle wrap. The adjustable design allows baby to sleep with arms in or out which provides easy transition for baby to the wearable blanket when it is time to stop swaddling. Another plus is it allows baby free movement of his lower body even with wrapped. The HALO SleepSack Swaddle helps soothe newborns, allowing them to sleep longer and more soundly by snugly and safely swaddling them.
