HALO® Review and Giveaway


October is Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Awareness Month I thought this would be a great Company to Highlight at Organic Girl.
HALO® was founded by a parent, who began researching sleeping environments after he lost a daughter to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 1991.
Since 1994, he and his company have worked to develop products that encourage healthier and safer sleeping as well as bring peace of mind to your home.
Mission:
HALO® Innovations, Inc. is dedicated to helping every baby sleep safely.
Products Include:
Designed by a parent who lost an infant to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), and now being used in hospital nurseries nationwide, the HALO® SleepSack™ wearable blanket replaces loose bedding in the crib that can cover your baby's face and interfere with breathing. It's the only product that carries seals from leading SIDS organizations in both the U.S. and Canada

The SleepSack™ wearable blanket reduces the risk of re breathing (the inhalation of carbon dioxide),
which has been associated as a possible cause of sudden infant death syndrome.
The SleepSack™ wearable blanket allows your baby to stay safe, warm and cozy all night long.
Now the #1 product on the market is available in an organic alternative - ideal for the family that embraces a natural lifestyle.

HALO® now offers a line of layette items great under a SleepSack™ wearable blanket or anytime of the day. Available in their trusted 100% cotton and 100% certified organic cotton. Made of 100% organically-grown cotton that is free of chemicals, dyes and preservatives.
This special collection was created with both safety and environmentalism in mind. I was thrilled when HALO® SleepSack sent Emma a variety of items from the New Halo Organic Cotton Line.
I received the an Organic Cotton Coverall, a Onsie set, and a pair of Organic Cotton Pants for her to try out. I have to say I love Organic Cotton and if you never thought there was a difference you are definitely mistaken. I would buy all my clothes Organic if I could really. The quality and softness of the HALO® Sleepwear set is untouchable quality and well made. Quality means no shrinkage in the laundry which is something HALO® Will Not Do!!! Moms this is wonderful, trust me there are clothes that I have loved only to wash and either never get a stain out or yep shrinkage!! Big time {lol} This material has held up wonderfully to the daily washing routine in my home.
100% Organic Cotton Coveralls
HALO® sent Emma their New beautifully crafted certified 100% Organic Cotton Coverall to Review and it fit her wonderfully and the best thing I love about this sleeper is the reverse zipper for easy changing. This is super at night.
I also feel great that she is in an outfit, Free of chemicals, dyes and preservatives!
Coverall/Sleeper Features:
* Turn-back cuffs at the sleeve prevent babies from scratching their adorable little faces.
* Inverted zipper makes diaper changes easy, won’t pinch baby’s skin and makes it harder for an older child to unzip.
* Machine washable and dryable with like colors.
* Available in Cat/Dog Print, Green & Blue Dots, Teacup Print and Pink & Purple Dots.
* Made of 100% organic cotton, free of dyes, chemicals and preservatives.
HALO® 100% Organic Cotton Pants.

* Machine washable and dryable with like colors.
* Available in Cat/Dog Print, Green & Blue Dots, Teacup Print and Pink & Purple Dots.

HALO® 100% Organic Cotton Short Sleeve Bodysuits
Features:
* 2 pack includes one print or polka dot with coordinating screen print natural solid. These are really long which is great as Emma is a long baby. The other Big thing to Note is that HALO® Sleep Wear actually fits big. I was sent the 6-9 mths and this actually fit Emma very well. And she is Turning One on Monday!!!

Created with both safety and environmentalism in mind, this collection is ideal for new parents who embrace a natural lifestyle and/or prefer organic products The special collection was created with both safety and environmentalism in mind.

Thank you HALO® SleepSack for this wonderful Review opportunity and Giveaway at Organic Girl

October is SIDS awareness Month
Here are a few tips from the Creator and inventor, Bill Schmid of the Halo Sleep Sack
Safe Sleep Tips
Back is Best for Baby's Safest Sleep...
By following these simple steps, parents and caregivers can help their baby survive and thrive:

* Place your baby to sleep on his or her back at nap time and night time.
* Use a safety approved crib with a firm, tight-fitting mattress.
* Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby's sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers and positioners).
* Use a SleepSack™ wearable blanket to replace loose blankets in your baby's crib.
* DO NOT put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins, etc.).
* Room sharing is safer than bed sharing.
* DO NOT dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
* DO NOT let anyone smoke around your baby or be in a room where someone has recently smoked.
* Educate relatives, baby sitters and other caregivers about these important safety tips.
* Tummy time is important for babies while they are awake and being supervised. Place your baby on his or her tummy for playtime to help strengthen their upper body muscles.

*A percentage of HALO Innovations' profits are donated to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and the Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths to fund
ongoing SIDS research, education and family support.
