I love seeing newborn babies in the hospital, not only are they an amazing blessing but they also look like cute little burritos swaddled in their blankets. I don’t think I ever got the hang of wrapping Little Miss A up quite like they did at the hospital though. I think I’d compare it to when you go get your hair done at a salon and try to recreate it yourself the next day with no help. But nonetheless I swaddled her, people unwrapped her to see her hands and feet, (I guess to make sure they were still there,) and I re-swaddled her again.
Being that I’m a short mommy I’m sure she was scrunched pretty tightly in my womb so I wanted her to feel like she was at home. So I did my best to wrap her tightly, but being a first time mom I didn’t know there was a much easier way than folding, using my knees, mouth, elbows and any extra body parts I had available to perform the perfect baby swaddle. Fortunately for my resourcefulness and great word of mouth from other moms, I found Halo. Halo is an award winning company for their design and safety. Halo is even present in hospitals these days as newborn and NICU nurseries are trying to demonstrate the safest way for your baby to sleep and ways to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.) Who wouldn’t want to buy something with a name that is trusted among parents, establishments and foundations?
Halo offers several products along with their SleepSacks, including Layettes, crib sheets, and wearable blankets. If you’re an extra cautious parent children can wear their Big Kid Wearable Blanket which features foot holes and runs up to size 4/5T.
I was able to try out Halo’s Plush Dot Velboa SleepSack Swaddle in, of course, pink. I love this SleepSack Swaddle because not only is it a swaddle blanket but once Baby C gets to the point where she wants her arms out I can remove the swaddle “section” and voila, it turns into a wearable blanket. *One small note though, the Plush Dot SleepSack is only available in Newborn size, so once your child is about 10 lbs or more they will most likely outgrow the SleepSack.
Halo makes using the SleepSack incredibly easy to use. Not only is the material flame retardant, but it is also machine washable AND dryable, don’t ask me why some other companies make baby products to be hand-washed. That’s another post! I would definitely recommend any products to my friends, which mean my readers as well.
Halo’s products run around $25 on average and the materials look long lasting enough to use for several babies. I also see them a lot on my mommy buy/sell used forums for sale and being requested. Buy yours new here: https://www.halosleep.com/
