HALO Innovations (the maker of the HALO SleepSack and HALO Bassinest) is running a “Then & Now” campaign during Baby Safety Month (September) to generate awareness about children's safety today.
Since having Emerson I can't tell you how many times I've heard "when you were a baby." Well times have changed in the last 30 years from parenting techniques to safe sleeping habits. Check out this
infographic showing the differences between then and now. So how do we go about educating our parents?
HALO has partnered with First Candle to promote a brand new website targeting grandparents. The site shares safety information and advice aimed specifically at grandparents caring for their grandchildren. The site also offers a free e-book for download: "A Grandparent's Guide to a Safe Sleep Over". This guide focuses specifically on sleep safety, an area that is of particular concern for HALO.
Enter HALO SleepSacks -- we love them and have from the very beginning. Check out our full review HERE.
There's nothing better than peace of mind. We can sleep soundly knowing Emerson is sleeping safe and sound in her HALO SleepSack wearable blanket. When Emerson goes to a nanny we send a sleepsack with her. By providing the nanny with a sleepsack we're ensuring she isn't covered with a blanket during nap time.

Safe Sleep Tips
+ Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
+ Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
+ Remove all blankets, comforters and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
+ Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
+ Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.
+ Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.
+ Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
+ Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
+ Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
