I know you know about HALO Innovations, but do you know the story behind the company and founder? The founder Bill Schmid and his wife lost their first born to SIDS. From this tragedy, HALO and its mission were born. For over 15 years they’ve been educating parents about safe sleep practices and a portion of every sale goes to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths. Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets. Today, HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are the #1 trusted choice of hospitals, and are used nationwide to help babies sleep safely from the start.
With the American Academy of Pediatrics now saying “no” to crib bumpers, HALO Innovations is introducing its own Safe Sleep Crib Set™ designed to create an attractive and safe sleep environment for babies.
The five-piece HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set™ consists of a HALO SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, both in 100% cotton; two coordinating crib sheets in soft cotton jersey; and a matching crib skirt.
“Too often parents ‘overdress’ the crib with a quilt and bumpers, both of which can pose a breathing threat for baby,” comments Bill Schmid, founder Halo Innovations. The Halo SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle are the only things a baby needs in the crib to stay warm and sleeping safely, and the soft jersey sheet provides a snug fit on the mattress.
These adorable new HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set will be available in stores in January 2012 and comes in six patterns including pink, blue and neutral tones.
I had the opportunity to review the HALO SleepSack – they are light, adorable, and perfect for any little one. These also make great ideas! You can buy them right on-line or at most stores.
HALO is so excited about their new line, the HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set, they have also offered to do a GIVEAWAY for my wonderful readers!
