"Fall in Love with Giveaways" Giveaway Hop Sponsor Spotlight- HALO

I received a sample from HALO for the sole purpose of this review

HALO is another one of those brands that you'll see frequently here on the blog. They are a favorite of ours while we still have young kids. My youngest has totally outgrown all of his sacks that are 0-6 months (he's 8.5 months now) and next up we have are 12-18. So I wanted to get a 6-12m for him and was excited when HALO contacted me.

October is SIDS awareness month and HALO are great supporters of awareness for SIDS. With their SleepSacks and SleepSwaddles they really help keep your baby on their back and away from loose blankets.

We received the Striped Cars in a Medium (6-12m)

 Liam was so excited about his new HALO that he had to get his hands on it RIGHT AWAY!!!!
 I just love the bright, vibrant print!

We love our new sleepsack of course! I am never disappointed with HALO items and I'm so glad I kept all of mine from my toddler so Liam can use them! They are something I feel you can never have enough of. 

Right now the cotton is perfect. They are great to replace a blanket. So when I lay him down I just zip him up in the sack and we're good to go. It fits him perfectly with a bit of room to grow, but also means I don't have to put a blanket in his crib at night. We love what HALO stands behind and we love using their products. 

HALO also recently introduced a Bassinest

Now for the month of October HALO is offering giveaways on Fridays on their Facebook page.

  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time. 
  • Room-share, but don’t bed share; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend against bed sharing as it can lead to an increased risk for accidental suffocation. 
  • Use a crib or bassinet that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet. 
  • Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm. 
  • Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established. 
  • Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed. 

  • Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.) 
  • Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.

For the hop, HALO is offering one reader the chance to win a cotton sleepsack of choice

Giveaway goes live on the 6th!
