I was sent a HALO SleepSack to facilitate this review, but all opinions are my own. 

SleepSack by HALO

Anyone with a new baby can tell you how stressful it is to deal with all the sleep safety guidelines. Only put them to sleep on their back! No crib bumpers or loose sheets! Get a white noise machine! I don’t know about you, but I’m so preoccupied with just trying to get my 6-week-old to go to sleep, period, that I can’t waste energy worrying about all that other stuff.

Safe Sleeping with HALO SleepSack

That’s why the SleepSack from HALO is so genius. It’s a wearable blanket that zips up the front, allowing you to keep your baby nice and warm without worrying about anything getting loose and covering up baby’s face or interfering with breathing.

I’d never tried a SleepSack before, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great it was. Cozy fabric, a zipper that zips from the bottom up (making for easy diaper-change access!), simple to put on. I think Hudson liked it too — in fact, the minute I zipped him up inside and laid him down to take a picture, he started falling asleep. That never happens!

I can think of a ton more ways to use a SleepSack — we were at the beach last week and I had a hard time keeping Hudson bundled up against the wind. Having a wearable blanket like this would be so helpful in a situation like that — any time you’re on the go and want to keep baby warm and comfy. I can’t wait to use it again at evening football games this fall. I wish they made an adult-sized one!

HALO Swaddle and SleepSack

My only issue with the SleepSack was that I’m a big swaddler, especially when my babies are young, so I’d probably shop for a SleepSack Swaddle blanket for my next kid. I love that HALO offers both types of products.

The SleepSack comes in a variety of designs and fabrics, including this super cute sweater version — perfect for the cable knit-wearing Prince George and your own royal baby. More lightweight fabrics are available for the warmer summer months.

The SleepSack was created by a SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) dad who has dedicated his life to creating safe sleep products for baby. HALO products are currently used in 1000+ hospitals nationwide in well baby care, NICU’s and in take home programs to help parents practice safe sleep at home. Find them at any of these retailers.
