New HALO® SleepSack Designs (Review and Giveaway)

babyphoto

 Oh, the milestones just keep coming! This week, baby girl is up on her knees, on the verge of sitting up on her own and taking off crawling. Her first tooth broke through, and she’s been experimenting with food like avocado and banana. Such a busy girl, she barely has time to sleep these days –and sadly, she’s outgrown most of her SleepSacks!

Luckily, HALO® has some new SleepSack wearable blanket designs out just in time for fall. (Not that SleepSacks are just for fall. We use ours every night, year round!)

A little bit about HALO, and why we started off with the SleepSack Swaddle before graduating up to regular SleepSacks:

“HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Modeling safe sleep practices for parents in the hospital is the key to safer sleep practices at home.  HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.”

As much as I would love to give my baby girl a snuggly soft blanket to cuddle up with at bedtime, I know she’s just too little and it’s not safe to have anything in her crib. That’s why I love SleepSacks. They give her the feeling of being covered up and snug, without endangering her with loose fabrics. And they’re breathable enough that she doesn’t get too hot or too cold in them. Once I put it on her, she immediately starts to cuddle. The switch goes off, and she knows it’s time to settle down with Mommy and go nite-nite. (That just might be my favorite part of each day.)

HALO SleepSack gives us both the comfort we need for a peaceful night’s sleep.

(I usually don’t share sleepytime photos, but she’s not actually sleeping here. Just playing and sucking her thumb. But don’t tell! :) )

Halo Sleepsack for safe sleeping.

We chose this sweet girls’ print with hearts, birds and flowers, but you can find all of the other new HALO SleepSack 100% Cotton Wearable Blankets on Amazon. They’re 100% breathable cotton, super soft, and wash beautifully (I think they get softer with each wash! Choose from sizes S–XL to fit your baby at any age.

To celebrate the new designs, HALO has offered to give away one SleepSack to a lucky ABCGP reader! (Enter using the easy Rafflecopter form below.)

$25 Starbucks Gift Card

On the rare occasion that I can sneak away with my laptop, I make a beeline to Starbucks.

A decaf hazelnut macchiato and a slice of chocolate cinnamon bread. I know a lot of my mom friends share my love of a few peaceful moments over a great cup of joe, so my Mother’s Day giveaway will help you do just that with a $25 gift card to Starbucks! Whether you are Mom, or you want to celebrate Mom, that’s a lot of lattes!

Summer Fashion from Gymboree: It’s all in the details.

Either I don’t know how to “nest” correctly, or I didn’t get a chance because Baby Girl came so early, but I’m certainly making up for it now. During my maternity leave, we’ve gone through tons of bins from the garage, bought a new pantry, ordered a new chest freezer for this year’s harvest, and now I’m stocking up on clothes for the kids. It’s hard not to when you have Gymbucks from Gymboree burning a hole in your pocket!
