HALO Safe Sleep from the Start #Halofromthestart @halosleepsack

     When you have a baby you want to do everything you can to protect them.  That all begins in the hospital from birth.  After I had my boys I didn't want them out of my sight.  I remember when they were both tiny I would check to be sure they were still breathing many times through the night.  One thing that has helped me to fill safer is using safe products like HALO sleepsacks.

     HALO is excited to announce that their HALO SleepSack Swaddles are now used in over 1,400 hospitals nationwide. Through HALO’s Safer Way to Sleep In-Hospital Program, hospitals and NICUs across the country are able to replace their nursery blankets with our SleepSack Swaddles, increasing parent education about infant safe sleep practices - right from the start.  I think this is a great program.  So far I have had my boys at 2 different hospitals and unfortunately I have not been lucky enough to have HALO SleepSack Swaddles with either boy.  I would love to see them in my hospital this time when I deliver baby girl.  
Safe Sleep Tips:

  • 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 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.
