Halo Sleep Sack Review & Giveaway


Every new baby needs to have at least a dozen swaddling blankets in their layette. There are many to choose from, but one of my favorites are the beautiful Sleepsacks available at Halo. Whether you need blankets for boys, girls, or something unisex, Halo has a large selection of prints and all different weights and materials for the different times of the year.  This is an imporant feature since swaddling is not only about security but safety. If a baby gets overheated or is too cold, this could put them at risk for sickness and even SIDS. The Halo was designed by a father who lost his infant to SIDS, and he created it as a way to help both you and your baby get a better night's sleep.





I've never been very good at swaddling. No matter how many times the nurses at the hospital showed me, I just couldn't get it right. But the Halo Sleepsack comes with easy to follow instructions that you just can't get wrong. You won't wrap the baby too tightly, possible causing Hip Dysplasia, or too loosely. So even if your half asleep in the middle of the night you can eaisly wrap up your baby in a few simple steps. Plus the material is made with soft cotton or  fleece, so its gentle against your baby's skin. When Willow was a newborn she always had a wonderful nights sleep bundled up in her Halo Sleepsack, and now that I am expecting another baby, I plan to use them again.




If you have a baby or are expecting one, the Halo Sleepsack should defnitely be on your list of nursury must haves. If you want to get one for yourself you can find them at retailers nationwide including Target, Babies R Us and JC Penny. In addition to their swaddling blankets, you can also find adorable wearable blankets, sleep sets, gifts and more. Shipping is free on all orders over $125, so stock up today make sure your baby is sleeping in comfort and style.






One lucky winner is going to receive a Halo Sleepsack of their own for either a boy or a girl. To enter, just visit Halo and tell me something you learned or a pattern you like.

I learned that the big kid sleep sack helps kids sleep better, too. It’s a warm cuddly blanket they can’t kick off; ensuring little ones stay covered all night long.
