Halo SleepSack - Back is Best

Both my girls LOVED to be swaddled when they were newborns. They loved how cozy and secure they felt when all bundled tight in a soft swaddling blanket.

The Swaddle Sleep Sack by Halo ($29.95) takes all the guessing out of getting a good, snug wrap on your infant - insuring a peaceful, longer night sleep (or as best as can be expected with a newborn).

Why use the SleepSack? The 2-in-1 design of the SleepSack snugly and safely wraps the infant; confining their arms to help prevent the startle reflex, which helps them sleep more soundly.

Once the baby is strong enough to get out of the swaddle feature, or shows signs of rolling over, simply remove the swaddle feature and continue to use the SleepSack as a wearable blanket.

We love the SleepSack for many reasons and can't wait to use it on our newborn (in just 6 short weeks). Aside from it being super comfy, it can help reduce the risk of SIDS because it replaces loose blankets in the crib. It even has the little "Back is Best" embroidered logo on the front, reminding caregivers to safely sleep babies on their back.

Know what else is cool about the SleepSack? This wearable blanket carries the First Candle/SIDS Alliance #1 Safe Sleep Product gold seal. Additionally, a portion of your purchase goes directly to First Candle/SIDS Alliance to support Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) medical research, education and family services.

Always remember, sleep a newborn on his/her back. "Back is Best".

GET IT YOURSELF! The SleepSack from Halo ($29.95) makes a fantastic gift for any expectant mother. Get yours online or at many major retailers across the country.

  119. As your baby grows, he may outgrow his need for swaddling as he may prefer to have his arms free or he may begin to move about in the crib and roll over. It's time to stop swaddling your baby when she starts to show signs of rolling over or breaking out of the swaddle. Most babies are ready to go into a regular wearable blanket by the age of six months at the latest.
