We had this SleepSack Swaddle for Isabella and it was my absolute favorite newborn/infant product. I had several similar products, but I used this one the most. Babies seem to kick their blankets off, but this keeps them secure and warm-allowing them to sleep better. Isabella adored being swaddled and this was a SleepSack and Swaddle all-in-one. It features their "back is best" motto to remind parents and caregivers to place babies on their back when going to sleep. (This is a picture of Isabella-baby #3 won't be here until February)
HALO understands that some babies don't like to be swaddled long, so you can use this as an arms in swaddle or arms out swaddle. The SleepSack Swaddle I had with Isabella allowed me to take the swaddle completely off to make it just a SleepSack. I thought this one would do the same thing, but it is sewed on instead of being attached with Velcro, so I can't take it off and use it as just a SleepSack as baby gets a little bigger. This one is a Newborn Size, so I will most likely swaddle until she is that size, but I'd like to have the option to take it off like I did with Isabella. HALO told me that they now attach them to ensure that parents place it correctly on baby's body. According to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, incorrect or tight swaddling on the lower half of a baby's body can actually result in hip dysplasia after birth.
The HALO Velboa SleepSack is available in two different sizes - Small(0-6 months) and Medium(6-12 months), other fabric choices are also available in a Large. This baby will be born in the winter months, so the Plush Dots Velboa material is going to be perfect. It is really soft and thick enough to keep her warm. The SleepSack zips down the middle and gives baby plenty of room to kick around, but keeps them warm.
Used in hospitals nationwide, The Halo SleepSack wearable blanket is the #1 choice of hospitals and is the only product that carries the gold seals from leading SIDS organizations. A portion of every sale goes to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths.
HALO goes the extra mile when it comes to features for their SleepSacks. I adore that the it zips from top to bottom. When it is closed, the zipper is at baby's feet, so they won't be trying to unzip it as they get older.
