Touted as the “Original Wearable Blanket”, Bill Schmid and his wife were inspired to create HALO SleepSack after tragically losing their first born to SIDS. They have been bringing awareness to parents about safe sleep practices and supporting non-profit organizations ( First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths) for over 15 years. American Academy of Pediatrics started recommending wearable blankets in 2005. Today, HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are the #1 trusted choice of hospitals, and are used nationwide to help babies sleep safely from the start.
American Academy of Pediatrics and leading safety organizations advises against the usage of soft, loose bedding, and bumpers in cribs. However, moms can be rest assured that their baby will get high-quality, safe sleep with the HALO SleepSack Crib Set ($115), which was recently awarded with the PTPA Winner’s Seal of Approval. It’s not only safe to use in the nursery, but this set is offered in 6 different prints that are fun, whimsical, and can easily coordinate with most nurseries: My Dog Sam, Friendly Caterpillar, Serengeti Green, Serengeti Blue, Jumbo’s Garden, and Caroline’s Garden.
I received the Caroline’s Garden, a beautifully designed crib set that consists of flower prints and light, pleasant colors, such as pink, blue, white, and green. This 5-piece set contains essential pieces that will ensure safe sleep for your baby, such as a coordinating HALO SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, two soft 100% cotton jersey fitted crib sheets, and matching decorative skirt. It doesn’t contain bumpers or comforters, which are posed as potential hazards that may cause SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
I haven’t transitioned my daughter from my bedroom (she prefers her bassinet) to her crib yet, so I haven’t had a chance to change her crib bedding. However, she’s been wearing her SleepSacks every night. She refuses to get comfortable enough in the swaddle blankets, so the SleepSacks are the only way she will sleep, because it is so comfortable and it makes her feel less confined.
Disclosure: I received an item to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.
Prize: One winner will receive a 5-Piece HALO SafeSleep Crib Set in Blue, Green, or Pink(a $115 value).
