2013 Holiday Gift Guide: Safe Sleep with @HaloSleepsack


If I had to choose a favorite moment of the day, it would have to be that time of night when the dinner is done, the sun is down, and I get the kids changed into their PJs. For our little girl, that means a sleepsack almost every night. I started using HALO wearable blankets because they ensure safer sleep for baby, but I fell in love with them because they’re just so darned soft and snuggly.

Why HALO®?

The HALO SleepSack wearable blanket replaces loose blankets in the crib that can cover your baby’s face and interfere with breathing. In addition to sleeping more safely, HALO SleepSack products help babies sleep better, too. It’s a warm, cuddly blanket they can’t kick off, ensuring your little one sleeps soundly throughout the night. Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets. Today, HALO SleepSack products are used by over 1,000 hospitals to promote safe sleep, and by millions of parents nationwide to help babies sleep safely from the start. ~halosleep.com

Of all the Sleepsacks we have, the cream-colored cable knit one is my favorite, and by far the loveliest option for this time of year. Isn’t it just so pretty with a pop of red?

It’s got the same trusted features as all HALO Sleepsacks, like an inverted zipper for easy diaper changes and a design that’s recognized as hip-healthy…

with a snowy fabric that is thick and warm like a favorite sweater. (I actually wish I had a sweater like this one!) Elliette wears it over a light onesie and it keeps her warm from head to toe without the need for a blanket, which we won’t be giving her for quite a while yet.

HALO also has some new designs available exclusively at JCPenney in their GiggleBaby Shop.  I love this cream-colored one. (There are lots of other prints and colors, too.) For moms like me who don’t have a Babies R Us (or many stores at all) nearby, this is great news! This soft, warm microfleece will definitely be under our tree this year, and I have THREE friends expecting in December, so they’ll be getting one, too!


Did I mention our little lady is about a minute away from taking her first steps? The only part I’m not looking forward to is putting away her Sleepsacks once she’s walking! Luckily, HALO has us covered with the perfect option for early walkers, too. Thanks to HALO, we’ll be snug and happy for years to come!

Buy it!

The full line of Halo Sleepsacks can be found at Amazon.com and fine retailers everywhere.

    Um, yeah, I have been eye-balling that EXACT cable knit you reviewed for awhile now. I think it would be perfect for our surprise baby #3 due in April!

    I would love to have the HALO® SleepSack® Big Kids Lightweight Knit | Cupcake for my twins who are almost 3.
