Sleep Safety: Halo Sleep Sack


Our babies can sleep up to 16 hours a day, as their little bodies and minds are busy developing. It is also the longest period of time that infants from newborns up to a year old could be left all by themselves, increasing their risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). SIDS is a sudden, unexplained death of a seemingly healthy infant. Not even doctors can explain what devastates parents worldwide, happening quickly and with no indication that it can happen.

Several factors are considered to affect the incidence of SIDS among babies, including accidental suffocation from loose beddings, blankets, stuffed toys, and baby clothes. The soft, loose items can cover a child’s nose and mouth by accident, causing them to re-breathe carbon dioxide and not enough oxygen. As such, it is important that their sleeping environment is safe and healthy to help them achieve their maximum growth potential.

Halo Sleep Sacks are wearable blankets in 100 percent breathable cotton and a warm microfleece variation. Sleeveless to prevent overheating, these are worn by the baby like an oversized shirt that’s closed at the bottom, and zipped down securely in front to avoid getting loose. The inverted zipper also helps with easier, fuss-free diaper changes.

The Halo Sleep Sack’s sack design helps encourage healthy hip and leg development while avoiding accidentally wrapping the material around their faces while they sleep. They will be able to sleep a whole lot better too, since their blankets will not be kicked off, keeping them warm and cozy all through the night. A “Back Is Best” logo embroidered on the front also serves as a reminder to put babies on their backs.

For your utmost peace of mind, the Halo Sleep Sack Saddle is also available, not only ensuring safety, but a better sleep that only swaddling can give. Halo also has Early Walker designs and Big Kids wearable blankets. Check them out at Halo Philippines and “like” the Halo page to help spread the word about sleep safety.
