Three babies in and I’m finally giving Swaddling a try! with the birth of my baby girl Mila just 5 weeks ago I decided to take home a few tricks from the birthing hospital. My favorite? swaddling!

Swaddling is old school! a technique that many Moms use to calm fussy babies but I have to admit, I couldn’t remember the correct way the nurses at the birthing hospital showed me. Did you know that the wrong kind of wrapping to swaddle can affect baby’s hip development? I needed to be safe!

The HALO SleepSack Swaddle features a reversible zipper to facilitate diaper change and a roomy bottom which supports healthy hip development. (Swaddling a baby tightly on his legs can restrict movement and lead to post-natal hip dysplasia.)

(Notice the generously sized fasteners that offer adjustability for a perfect fit.)

What many do not realize is that the HALO SleepSack Swaddle is probably one of the most versatile products on the market as it is the only three-way swaddle that provides just what your baby needs when swaddled. The baby can be swaddled safe and easy with:

  • arms in ( reduces startle reflex)
  • hands showing so baby can self-sooth by touching his face
  • arms out which is a great way to transition to a SleepSack wearable blanket

When Swaddling Your Baby Remember These Important Safety Tips:

  • Always place your baby to sleep on his or her back.
  • Besides the SleepSack Swaddle, DO NOT put any additional blankets, pillows or stuffed animals in the bed with your baby.
  • Swaddling should be discontinued when your baby shows signs of rolling over or breaking free from the swaddle wrap. When this occurs, transition your baby into a SleepSack wearable blanket.
  • Some babies prefer to be swaddled with their arms out.  The HALO SleepSack Swaddle can be used either with baby’s arms in or out, depending on baby’s preference.
  • To reduce the risk of fabric accidentally covering baby’s mouth or nose, swaddle wrap must be snug, appropriately sized, positioned around baby’s torso and securely fastened.
  • It’s important that you select the appropriate size for your baby.  Please refer to the SleepSack wearable blanket size chart to select the proper size for your baby.



– 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.

Baby Mila is less fussy and as a new Mom, I feel at ease wrapping her in a HALO SleepSack swaddle versus a loose blanket which can cover her face. Better sleep for baby means better sleep for mama!
