Safe Sleep with HALO

As a first time mother, I have loads of fears concerning my newborn. The moment I learned of the pregnancy, I have been reading and reading and reading as much information as I could about parenting, newborn care, motherhood.

And one of the things I came across is SIDS – Sudden Infant Death. Yes!! Even while sleeping, a baby is at risk. Ganun sila ka-fragile!

Actually, allow me to share with you a recent experience that made me trembling from head to toe.

Skye’s sleeping on her crib. I was watching her. Looking at her face. Checking her breathing. Yes! Ganun ako kabaliw. I wanna make sure that she’s really okay. Then, The Companion made lambing. I took my eyes off my newborn for less than a minute. Oh heck! I am even sure that it’s just 30seconds. Ganun ka-saglit lang. But when I check on her again, I saw that her bonnet was all over her face and she’s already starting to stir!!! I immediately removed the bonnet and hugged her. I was crying. Thanking the Lord and her guardian angel coz I don’t wanna think about what will happen if I’m a minute too late.

To think that I’ve read about SIDS way way before. Kaya nga her crib is free from all the unnecessary things like stuffed animals. Her beddings are tight and we use a safe pillow. Pero nangyari padin yun. I didn’t realize that the bonnet I made her use was too big. And because she’s really malikot (yes! a newborn na parang kiti kiti), she’s really prone to having stuff on her face. I used to swaddle her with receiving blankets lang but after that incident, pinush ko na talaga na bilhan sya ng Halo Sleep Sack.

I got an invite from Halo for Sparty last February 21. Kaso I gave birth na nga that time so I wasn’t able to attend. I didn’t immediately get a sleepsack kasi I'm still thinking if it’s really worth it. Kaya nga I accepted the invite coz I wanna know more about Halo and their products. Kasi hello?! The sleep sack costs Php1500. Hindi birong pera para sa kumot. But with that experience, naku! I know na it’s really worth it. I don’t wanna take a risk, specially if its about my child’s safety.

Look at my Skye. she’s loving her sleep sack. And Nanay’s peace of mind is priceless. Note also na no more bonnets for her. After that incident. No more bonnet while she’s sleeping. We put bonnet on her kasi newborns are lamigin. That’s also why we swaddle her with blankets na madalas naman naalis nya sa sobrang kalikutan nya. So this sleep sack is really perfect. Kahit anong stir ang gawin nya, hindi sya maalis. And no risk na mapunta sa mukha nya yung blanket and masuffocate sya. Very safe talaga.

And of course the blanket makes her warm so she could have a good night’s sleep. I noticed that the sleep sack is perfect kasi hindi ganun ka-tight and ka-heavy kaya di sya pinagpapawisan and not naman too lose or too manipis para lamigin sya. Actually, my little girl is loving her sleep sack. Gamit nya yan kahit sa umaga. Sulit na sulit.

***********************************************************************************************

As a parent, you care a lot about your baby inside and out - from her diet, skin care, and most especially her 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), suffocation, and other sleep-related accidents.

One of the most important decisions you will make is how you put your baby to sleep. Here are some essentials in creating a safe and healthy sleep environment for your baby:

1.  Halo Safe Sleep Tips with Seal

Safe Sleep Saves Lives!

Due to a lack of public awareness, some parents may not appreciate that 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 Sleep Starts with HALO

2. Best Shower Gift

Safe and healthy sleep is now made easy with the award-winning HALO® SleepSack®. It is a wearable blanket worn over 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 throughout the night, she sleeps better, longer.

Not All Baby Safety Products Are Approved by the Medical Community.

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 contain 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 3rd 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. Why? Because there is NO COMPROMISE when it comes to your baby’s safety.

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 – important factors to consider when choosing a safety product for your baby.

HALO SleepSacks also come in the SleepSack Swaddle variant made especially for newborns. It is the only 2-in-1 swaddle that allows for swaddling with arms in or arms out. It is also the only swaddle in the market that 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 throughout the night.

It's scary talaga! I would have bought this when they were still babies kasi I'm paranoid about SIDS, too. They were big na when I found out about this product.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

this product is really heaven sent! And would you believe that my 7month old baby still uses this? Kasya pa! We got the small one. Pero baka mag-upgrade na kami anytime soon. :) Kaparanoid ang SIDS as in!

Marie Angeli Laxa said...

Nakakaparanoid maging ina in general! I barely slept during my son's newborn days because I watched him while he slept; I only learned of this product nung malaki na sya!

May Palacpac said...

Oh I was paranoid when I had my babies! they all slept beside me and I really keep a sharp eye on them, even now. I've read about this baby who died in the rocker...kasi nakayupi yung leeg...:(

Pink Diamond said...

Wow, I never heard about that Halo when Audric was still a newborn baby. As for the bonnet, my sister (a pedia) told us to remove it and just use it when we're going out. So no bonnet inside the house, we just regulate the room temperature for him.

Pink Diamond said...

Anong klaseng rocker? Kawawa naman yung baby. :(

Celerhina Aubrey said...

I feel you! Lahat ng kibot ni baby bantay na bantay!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

OMG! Grabe. Kaya kelangan talaga laging babantayan ang baby eh. :(

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Kaya nga eh. Sabi kasi sa amin dapat laging may bonnet ang newborn. Kaloka!

Nicole Paler said...

This looks cute, like a special sleeping bag for newborns. I too was paranoid for my first and second born that's why I had the bed removed and we slept japanese style with the mattress on the floor. para pag naglikot di siya mahuhulog :)

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Naku I tried to train my baby to sleep on the crib kasi nga malikot na! Nakakapraning baka mahulog. Kaso ayaw nya, kaya nabubuhay kami sa iba't ibang sleeping positions, yung hulog proof. :)

Vicky Thompson said...

We had something similar: a SwaddleMe. It was useful but as our baby got older, he preferred to sleep like a starfish...hehe. These sleepsacks look comfy. I wish they came in adult sizes. I would seriously use one of these :)

zaineandi said...

my youngest brother had something similar to the halo sleep sack when he was a baby and it was so hard to find one afterwards. when i was pregnant with my son, since i cannot find a seller that time, i opted for the swaddles instead though my son was not able to maximize his swaddles

Que Sullano - Gavan said...

I'm a Halo user too! Now, I'm thinking of getting one for my 3-year old toddler that does not want blanket when he sleeps! I know Ives, who owns Halo Philippines :D

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Ako din!!!! I want an adult size sleepsack. Hahaha!

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Baka your son doesn't want you naiipit like my baby. Kaya we opted for the sleepsack lang.

Celerhina Aubrey said...

Ives is very nice ano? :) Sayang lang I was not able to attend yung sparty nya coz I gave birth on the exact day. My baby still uses her sleepsack and I think she'll be using these until toddler years. Magpapalit nalang ng size. :)
