October was SIDS Awareness Month, and even though October (And Most of November) Has come and gone it’s never too late to talk about the best way for your baby to sleep. Halo Sleep Sack has a great list of Safety Sleeping Tips for Babies to help avoid SIDS. You can Check them out Here!
Halo Sleep Sacks provide a great alternative to blankets, especially for the active sleepers who tend to come uncovered in the middle of the night. Recently Halo sent me one of their Early Walker Sleep Sacks for my Son to try. At first I was really worried that he might not like it, but I knew that Winter was coming and that he often comes uncovered when sleeping, so I was looking for an option to keep him warm over the next few months. Here are a few of my thoughts on this product:
- Contrary to what I first thought, My Son actually loves this product and asks to wear his blanket every night before bed. In fact one night it was being washed and he was really upset that he couldn’t wear it. He also sometimes asks to keep it on in the mornings while he drinks his milk.
- I love that it stays on all night and I don’t have to worry if it’s cold outside. Plus there is plenty of room for his pajama’s so I’ve been dressing him like normal and then using the Sleep Sack in place of a blanket.
- The Zipper on the front of the sleep sack zips from the top to the bottom so my Son can’t get out of it on his own.
Really, the only thing I thought you might want to know about this product is that the sizing might be a little big. My Son fits exactly into the sizing for the XL Walking Sleep Sack, but it’s a little long for him and there is plenty of room. I’m thinking he will be able to wear it for at least a year, which is great because then I don’t have to find a new solution next fall.
My Honest and Humble Opinion: I can’t wait for you to try this product. I think you will be surprised at just how much you love it! I thought it was a great idea, and loved the concept, but I don’t know if I will ever get my Son to sleep without one now. I never dreamed that he would love it so much, and you guys know I don’t say that about every product. I am already registering for the Original Sleep Sack for my little girl, I can’t wait to try that one out too!
Guess What!!! That’s right, I am giving away a Halo Sleep Sack to a Lucky NWA Deals Reader!
