When I do get a few hours of sleep at a time, I rest easy knowing Wyatt is comfy and safe in his HALO SleepSack Swaddle. As a second time mom, I know this phase won't last forever and it helps that I have the tools to make safe sleep easy.
SleepSack Swaddles are fool-proof and my go-to because I never figured out how to swaddle with a blanket. My swaddles would always come undone and leave baby cold and unsafe. HALO SleepSack Swaddles are safe swaddling made easy. If you're like me, you like easy. A zipper and some velcro are so much easier to do in the dark than trying to wrap a blanket around a squirmy baby.
We took our SleepSack Swaddle to the hospital with us and continue to use it at home each night. Over 1,400 hospitals are using SleepSack Swaddles now rather than the traditional nursery blankets to keep newborns safe.
Like everything else, I order my SleepSack Swaddles on Amazon. The designs are adorable and offer boy, girl, and gender neutral options. We have a mix of patterns at our house but this Jungle Pals Fun print is my favorite.
September is baby safety month and HALO is sharing some important tips for safe sleep:
- 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 blankets, comforters 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 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.
It is not only important that YOU know these safe sleep guidelines but also to make sure can caregivers (babysitters, grandparents, friends) follow these guidelines too. Remember, back is best.

There are plenty of baby products that are "must haves" but HALO SleepSack Swaddles are not only cute and easy to use but keep g your baby safe. I was so scared as a new mom and using this product helped me feel more confident. Using a SleepSack Swaddle will not only help your baby sleep but help you sleep, too. I don't know about you but I could use a little extra sleep.
