(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.“
- 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.
To Win: To help get you started with safe sleep practices, HALO is offering a Swaddle and SleepSack to the wonderful readers of Mommy’s Obsessions!
