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. As your child grows from baby to toddler, HALO Innovations offers the SleepSack Early Walker and SleepSack Big Kids - now in a new lightweight- knit fabric. HALO SleepSack Early Walker and SleepSack Big Kids offer your child the warmth and security of a SleepSack so he can fall asleep fast and sleep soundly throughout the night as well as unique foot openings for more mobility when awake.

10 Ways to Reduce the Risk of S.I.D.S. - HALO SleepSack for Toddler Review

By making a purchase, you help support programs and research related to Sudden Infant death Syndrome. Here are some additional ways you can keep your baby safe while sleeping.

1. Place babies on their backs to sleep.
2. Use a firm mattress in a safety-approved crib.
3. Eliminate all soft and loose bedding from baby's crib, including bumpers, positioners and wedges.
4. Use the HALO® SleepSack® wearable blanket instead of loose blankets in the crib.
5. Keep baby's face clear of coverings.
6. Make sure that your crib sheet fits snug on your crib mattress.
7. Never use and adult sheet on a crib mattress; it can come loose, your baby can become entangled and their breathing can become restricted.
8. Be aware of room temperature and clothing to ensure baby doesn't overheat.
9. Don't allow anyone to smoke around your baby.
10. Consider room sharing instead of bed sharing.



Sweet Pea always ends up kicking off the covers at night now that she is in her big girl bed. But lately it has been getting cold at night, so I am loving the HALO SleepSack. And I absolutely love watching Sweet Pea walk around in her Big Kid version. It has to be the most adorable thing I have ever seen. I can't wait to take this to Florida in a few weeks. We keep the air conditioner very cool when we are on vacation and I always worry about how cold she is at night that I will wake up every few hours and make sure she is covered up. But with the HALO Big Kids SleepSack Lightweight Knit Wearable Blanket I don't have to worry about it!

Did you know October is SIDS Awareness Month? For every NEW Facebook "like" Halo SleepSack gets during the month of October, they will donate $1 to SIDS Awareness.

  1. Great post and helpful giveaway! Only I'm personally an advocate in safe bed sharing (sleep sharing) and whatever sleeping arrangement works best for mom and baby. Bed sharing can be safe as long as everyone is sober and nonsmoking as well as having a firm mattress and baby being between mom and a railing. That being said I've known plenty of babies who are such active sleepers that they make it almost impossible to share a bed with them!
