A month or so before Baby K was born I was sent two Halo Sleep Sacks with the swaddle option. I meant to give one away a LONG time ago but well, I had a baby and we all know how that goes…
So now the time has come and here I am to say that “the Halo Sleep sack with the swaddler attached saved my bacon!”
I’m NOT the best swaddler. Tim’s pretty good at it, but me, not so much. And since I was the one who was getting up more frequently with Baby K for the middle of the night diaper changes and feedings (not to say he didn’t help, but he has a day job so…) it was wonderful.
The velcro that attaches the swaddle section is VERY strong and you can make it as tight or lose as you want. AND! It zips from the bottom so you can open it up down below for a diaper change without having to undo the top as well! Plus, once the baby out grows the swaddle portion you can completely detach it and continue to just use the sleep sack.
I do recommend attaching the velcro before you launder it though… otherwise you’ll have ALL kinds of things attached to it once you pull it out of the dryer (you know socks, little boy underwear, etc.)
The Halo Sleep Sack was invented by a parent who lost a child to SIDS and in my opinion is a wonderful product for parents who can’t swaddle so well and also gives the parent peace of mind that their baby is still warm and safe while sleeping.
This would make a great gift or be wonderful for your own baby!
