HALO SleepSack Swaddle Review and Giveaway

I have always swaddled my babies. Both of my boys loved being swaddled from the day they were born until they outgrew their sleep sacks. Baby Julia on the other hand prefers to have her arms free while sleeping, so my old swaddle blankets and traditional sleep sacks were a no go for my newest bundle of joy. She wanted nothing to do with them. So when HALO offered to send me the HALO SleepSack Swaddle for review I was excited, as this product allows for my baby to have her arms free while still being safely swaddled.

Learning the art of swaddling can be a bit tricky and each person seems to do it differently. I was flabbergasted the first time I saw a nurse swaddle my baby, they turned him into a little blanket burrito and I was absolutely sure that there was no wary on God’s green Earth I would be able to replicate it. While I was eventually able to figure out the whole swaddling thing I was also super excited to figure out that there were products out there that took the guesswork out of traditional swaddling.

The HALO SleepSack Swaddle makes swaddling as easy as 1, 2, 3. One, place your baby in the open SleepSack making sure their arms are through the arm holes. Two, zip the zipper on the SleepSack. Three, use the adjustable Velcro swaddle wrap to keep your baby’s arms secure. It really is that simple. 

What we love about the HALO SleepSack Swaddle:
I love that it is simple to use. And to make it even easier HALO has instructions sewn right into the SleepSack Swaddle for quick and easy reference.

The HALO SleepSack Swaddle is 100% cotton and machine washable {we wash using the cold gentle cycle}, just make sure to close the Velcro when laundering for best results.

The HALO SleepSack Swaddle has been deemed “hip healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. 

It comes in adorable colors, patterns, and fabrics. You can get the HALO SleepSack Swaddle in Micro-Fleece, Plushy Dot Velboa, 100% Organic Cotton, or 100% Cotton.  The one pictured above is the Diamond Pink Elephant and we love it!

Since September is Baby Safety Month I thought it would be appropriate to share a little bit about the HALO® Safer Way to Sleep Initiative!

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® Swaddle has 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. That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Leading health organizations agree that modeling proper baby care in the hospital is the single biggest influence on how parents care for their baby at home. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.

Sadly, the hospital that I delivered all three of my children in did not use the HALO SleepSack Swaddles when my children were born. I would have loved to have gotten firsthand experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle right from the beginning. I would have loved to have been able to participate in the Take-Home Program that sends parents home from the hospital with a HALO® SleepSack® wearable blanket. 

Baby Julia loves her HALO SleepSack Swaddle and I love that she is being kept warm while still being safe. I love that it is s o easy to use and easy to clean. It is definitely a new mom must have.
