Today Mommy's Little Miracle is featuring a brand who makes safe sleeping a priority - HALO!
(As from their website)
"Our founder Bill Schmid and his wife lost their first born to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). From this tragedy, HALO® and its mission were born. For nearly 20 years we’ve been dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. From our bestselling SleepSack® wearable blankets that help babies sleep safely, to our ComfortLuxe® Sleepwear that helps little ones with sensitive skin sleep more comfortably, to our Healthy Hips™ Diaper Cover that can help reduce the risk of infant hip dysplasia, all we do comes from the core idea of putting babies first."

When it comes to your child, having them sleep safely is a parents priority; we strive to make sure that they're safe 110% of the time and that includes at nighttime. HALO has made it their priority to bring awareness to safe sleeping and strives to make products that not only help reduce the risk of SIDS, but ease parents piece of mind while they're little miracle(s) sleep.
A few key safe sleeping tips that HALO wants to share with parents are:
- 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.

For the Mommy's Little Miracle event, HALO was generous enough to send Mommy's Obsessions a sample of their Newborn SleepSack Swaddle, and a size small SleepSack for Little Boy when he arrives! I was very excited to have the opportunity to try both of these products out; Little Mister has one of the HALO Big Kids SleepSacks and absolutely loves it! When I opened them both up, the first thing I noticed was how comfortable they would be for Little Boy to sleep in, and how they would give me great peace of mind knowing that he will be cozy yet not have any loose blankets in his bassinet or crib!

There is also one more excited product that Halo just launched in an effort to create safer sleeping habits - the HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper! The Bassinest has a unique dual-swivel design and is the only bassinet that moves to bring baby to mom or dad, allowing them to sleep as close as the parent wants, even right next to them in bed! What is wonderful about the Bassinest is that although it keeps baby close, it also keeps them sleeping safely in his or her own separate sleep area, which ultimately reduces the risks that are associated with bed-sharing.
The Bassinest also helps to support nursing moms with a patented retractable wall! The baby can be brought to breast without getting out of bed, and it also has a unique nursing timer alerts mom when it's time to change sides or return baby to his own sleeping space. Mom can tend to many of her baby’s needs while still in bed for greater convenience, comfort, and a more restful sleep. The new Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is JPMA-certified and was awarded the top JPMA Innovation Award for 2013.
