Getting a newborn to fall asleep is not an easy task. While there’s plenty of strategies to employ (my parents would keep the vacuum cleaner on for me) it’s also important to make sure your method promotes safe sleep, too.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, about half of all unexpected infant deaths in the U.S. each year are caused by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). After HALO founder Bill Schmid and his wife lost their first infant to SIDS, he set out to create a solution to ensure sound AND safe sleep for babies.
HALO’s SleepSack swaddles and blankets are not only great at keeping your baby warm, but will also help protect him from sleep hazards, like loose blankets in the crib. Start out using the swaddles, which can be adjusted to keep baby’s arms in or out. Once you catch your baby learning how to roll, you can transition to the wearable blankets so he has his hands free. Both soothers are recognized as “Hip Healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
Join HALO’s safe sleep mission by entering our latest giveaway, including two SleepSack Swaddles and two SleepSack wearable blankets for ONE lucky winner, worth about $100 total. That means a full year of safe sleep for your little critter.
