Sleep Safe with a Halo SleepSack

Spot the Halo SleepSacks in this photo:

Did you see them? I spy two, but I think I got like 10 during Berry's baby shower, and more as family and friends sent gifts while waiting for her arrival. 

I am not kidding when I tell you how popular sleep sacks are in baby showers in the US these days, or even 5 years back, when I was still pregnant with Beriray.

Maybe because it can get really cold during the winter, and you just want to make sure your baby doesn't kick off his/her blanket at night. But most especially because people in the US are very much conscious and aware of SIDS. Both Berry & Xavi used Halo Sleep Sacks as babies, actually.

It was SIDS awareness that convinced a mom, Ives Lim-Esteban, to bring in Halo Sleepsacks here in the Philippines. She has taken it upon herself to advocate for safe sleep education and open every parent's eyes about SIDS.

According to just about every nurse, baby book or child care expert, one of the many ways we can minimize risk from suffocation, sleep accidents and SIDS is to remove all soft bedding such as loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners as well as toys from our baby's sleep area. The American Academy of Pediatrics in fact suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets. 

And that's what Halo SleepSacks are all about. You can slip baby in and zip her up, sure that she'll stay warm and cozy without fear of a blanket accidentally covering her face.

Halo SleepSack has different styles as our kids grow up in size, from swaddles for newborns to wearable blankets for babies, to a version with footsies for big kids. They come in cotton or fleece and in solid colors as well as prints.

Halo SleepSacks retail for about Php1,550 but they're built to last a long time. Xavi got to use many of Berry's Halo SleepSacks, save for the pink ones.

In the Philippines, HALO SleepSacks are available at, Rustan’s, Babyland, Fishermall, Numa, and online at Lazada, AVA, and Cudsly.
