Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets. Today, HALO Innovation’s SleepSack products are used by over 1,000 hospitals to promote safe sleep, and by millions of parents nationwide to help babies sleep safely from the start. HALO Innovation's offer a range of SleepSack wearble blankets, from SleepSack Swaddles for newborns to SleepSack Big Kids for toddlers, offering your little one comfort and safety at any age.Natalie has been spending her days warm and toasty in this wearable blanket. All I need is my own snuggie and we'd be quite the pair! Of course, she looks much cuter in her sleepsack than I will ever look in a snuggie!!
I like that this is very long so she will be able to use this for a long time and get great use out of it. It beats having to constantly wrap her in a blanket. The only thing I've found annoying is that I have to take her out of it if I ever want to buckle her into the bouncer or the swing, because I can't put the buckle through her legs when she's wearing this. Other than that, it's been really nice to have, and I love how it looks too!
HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. Today, 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.Halo Sleepsacks are available for purchase at target.com, amazon.com and babiesrus.com.

For your reading pleasure, here are some Safe Sleep Tips from Halosleep.com:
- 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.
I received one HALO wearable blanket to review. All opinions are my own.
