Safe Sleep Tips with HALO: plus giveaway!

I’ve been a HALO fan since we had Ryan nearly 5 years ago. We used their SleepSacks for our children as a safe way to sleep and keep warm, without blankets. They’re now a regular on baby registries and as shower gifts for new parents! I’ve teamed up with HALO to bring you these safe sleep tips:

  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
  • 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.


  • 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.

HALO Bassinest

I have loved watching HALO grow over the years since we had our first and I am in LOVE with their brand new swivel sleeper, the Bassinest.

I got to see this baby in person earlier this month at the ABC Kids Expo and it’s awesome. It’s amazing for co-sleeping, pulling the baby right up close to you for comforting or nursing. We tried a co-sleeper with Rebecca (our second) and I can really imagine how much better it would have been for us if it had swiveled like the HALO Bassinest.

HALO® is excited to announce the launch of its brand new baby bassinet product – the BassinestTM  Swivel Sleeper. With its unique dual-swivel design, the Bassinest is the only bassinet that moves to bring baby to mom. It allows baby to sleep as close as Mom wants – even right next to her in bed – so baby can sleep close AND safe.
