Safe sleeping tips from HALO and a #giveaway

This week is both my oldest daughter’s birthday and Mother’s Day. This means that I will have been a mom for 6 years! You’d think that would make me a bit of an expert by now but alas, I’m still figuring it out as I go. One funny thing that I’ve recently realized is how quickly my infant knowledge has become dated. When I take my 4 year old to gymnastics, I watch her with a couple of grandmothers who bring their granddaughters to the same class. They talk about what they used to do when their own children were babies, and how different things are for their children and grandchildren and often I can’t even chime in because it’s been 4 years since I’ve had a newborn and truth be told, I’m not sure what the current recommendations are. That’s why you need to know who the experts are, and when it comes to sleep safety, you want to listen to HALO Innovations.

HALO Product Family Collage2015

The HALO family of products, including HALO SleepSacks and SleepSack Swaddles, SwaddeSure and the best-selling HALO BassinestTM Swivel Sleeper, help children from newborn to toddler age sleep better and safer. Our family used the SleepSacks for both of our daughters and we loved them; I sure wish the SleepSack Swaddle had been around for my oldest!

Safe Sleep Tips from HALO:

ALWAYS

  • Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
  • Use a crib 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.
  • Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.

NEVER

  • 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.
