Introducing the HALO SleepSack® Crib Set and the Launch of Their New Blog, "Crib Notes" (Review)

With the American Academy of Pediatrics now saying “no” to crib bumpers, here at HALO we've introduced our own SleepSack® Crib Set™ designed to create an attractive and safe sleep environment for babies.

The five-piece HALO SleepSack Crib Set consists of a HALO SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, both in 100% cotton; two coordinating crib sheets in soft cotton jersey; and a matching crib skirt.

“Too often parents ‘overdress’ the crib with a quilt and bumpers, both of which can pose a breathing threat for baby,” comments Bill Schmid, founder of HALO Innovations. “The HALO SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle are the only things a baby needs in the crib to stay warm and sleeping safely, and the soft jersey sheet provides a snug fit on the mattress.”

My Thoughts:
I was sent the Caroline's Garden crib set to review with Arabella, and love it.  I have been a fan of HALO products, especially their swaddlers and sleepsacks, since welcoming our first daughter in 2011, and was excited to find out that they were adding a SleepSack® Crib Set to their product line.  And, now with their new line of crib sets, I now have another gift idea to give to expectant family and friends.

First off, the design is beautiful -- who knew that Arabella would look so good in flowers? :-)  It was a cinch to add the crib skirt and fitted sheet to her crib.  In minutes, I was able to get rid of the bumper, which I was always afraid of and finally feel relief in knowing that Arabella will not only sleep comfortably on her new sheet set, but that the bumper will not be there.

And, with the New England weather, we have been having hot nights for a few days, and then back to wintery feeling nights.  So, I was excited to see the sleepsack and swaddler, included in the HALO SleepSack® Crib Set, to choose from and use at bedtime.  Unfortunately, Arabella has grown so fast that she didn't fit into the swaddler.  But, fear not, I shared this with a family friend who just welcomed her first daughter, and both baby and Mommy love it!  As for the HALO sleepsack, Arabella is able to move her arms freely, as she is being to roll over.  And, with the changing temperatures, I know this breathable material will not only keep her warm, without causing excessive sweating, but will also let her stretch her legs out (thus, preventing hip problems).

Since receiving this new crib set from HALO, I have washed all the items over a dozen times, and each piece in the set continues to keep its shape and hasn't faded.  And, the best part -- I love how this crib set can grow with Arabella, and also be used down the road, when I transition her to a toddler bed.  
Thanks HALO for continuing to delivery exceptional quality and for looking out for my babies.  And, thank you for launching your new blog, "Crib Notes," which features posts about parenting issues, joys and challenges, as well as columns from a variety of experts and regular product giveaways.
