Did you know that 80-90% of SIDS-related deaths are due to unsafe sleep practices?   During the month of October, HALO will donate $1 to SIDS Awareness for every new Facebook “Like”.  Help us spread the word about safe sleep practices by sharing the news or sharing this post!

 To make sure we all know just what “safe sleep practices” are, Halo SleepSack has compiled the following list for us:
  • 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 snuggly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
  • Remove all soft bedding 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.
  • Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface
  • 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.

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have 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. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.

Our family was first introduced to Halo SleepSacks via a hand-me-down SleepSack we got from a friend.  And it was from the “Back to Sleep” logo on that SleepSack that I first learned about putting baby to sleep on their back.

(We lived in a really old house with old wood frame windows so it was freezing in Big Brother’s room in the winter.  Hence the socks on his hands.  He even has a pair of thermals on under his jammies! LOL)

That was six years ago.  We are still using Halo SleepSacks and practicing safe sleeping practices.

Not too long ago Halo SleepSack released Halo SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle by Pottery Barn.  Immediately I loved the clean and classic look of the stripes.  Available from Pottery Barn Kids, these SleepSacks can be monogrammed or personalized.

Not only is The Pottery Barn Halo SleepSack adorable on our little guy, it is also sooo soft! It is made of 100% organic cotton. The Husband commented on how thick and well made the SleepSack is.
