As a parent, you care a lot about your baby inside out from his diet to skincare and most especially his safety. Babies spend around 16 hours sleeping in their first year of life. It is often during sleep that babies are left unattended, and yet this is when they are most at risk of Sudden Infant Death (SIDS).

One of the most important decisions you will make is how you put your baby to sleep. Due to lack of public awareness, some parents may not appreciate that a safe sleep could mean life or death for a fragile baby. The truth is, a gamble is made each time a baby is placed in an unsafe sleep environment: Either tragedy happens or not — there is no middle ground and no second chances. Is your baby’s life worth risking?

In addition, the first few years of life are the critical years of brain and body development, where healthy sleep plays a vital role. Experts agree that healthy sleep is a prerequisite for a child’s physical and mental development. Poor sleep in infancy can lead to severe long-term effects such as difficulty socializing, depression, anxiety, and poor performance at school later on in life.

Safe and healthy sleep is now made easy with the award-winning Halo SleepSack — a wearable blanket worn over baby’s regular sleepwear as a replacement to loose blankets (which can cover a baby’s face and interfere with breathing). The Halo SleepSack can’t be kicked off, so your baby won’t catch cold in the middle of the night (and potentially get sick). Since your baby is warmly snuggled through the night, he/she sleeps better, longer.

What makes Halo products truly unique is that every single specification has been engineered to make your baby as safe as possible. Halo understands the science of “safety” that goes beyond the outward merchandise design. Other products may use fabric that contains toxins or carcinogenic dyestuff which are easily ingested through your baby’s immature skin. Poor-quality zippers may fall off and become a choking hazard. Even packaging may have dyes and toxins that migrate to the product. And the list goes on...

Halo products are validated by third party certifications and tested against standards that even exceed US federal regulations. Halo is a company that refuses to scrimp on quality and safety, even if it means paying a premium on manufacturing. Because they believe that when it comes to your baby’s safety, there is no compromise.

All this makes Halo the #1 trusted brand by moms, and the only brand used in over 1,000 US hospitals. Halo is the only brand that carries the seals of leading SIDS and safety organizations, and is approved by the medical community.

Halo SleepSacks also come in the SleepSack Swaddle variant made especially for newborns, which can be used as a safer alternative to traditional receiving blankets. It is the only 2-in-1 swaddle that allows for swaddling with arms in or arms out. It is also the only swaddle on the market that is approved as hip healthy by the international hip dysplasia institute.

For bigger kids, the Halo SleepSack Early Walker prevents toddlers from kicking off their blankets so they stay warm and comfortable all night long. It comes with unique foot openings to provide mobility and comfort. The Halo SleepSack Early Walker aids in sleep training as it becomes the trusted bedtime routine, providing the secure feeling toddlers need to fall asleep fast and sleep soundly through the night.

Halo SleepSacks are available at www.halophilippines.com, Rustan’s, Babyland, Fishermall, Numa, Oak & Acorn (Davao) and e-commerce sites like Lazada, Ava, Baby Outlet, Babies to Toddlers, and Cudsly.
