Have you seen pictures of babies in a hospital nursery wearing a HALO SleepSack Swaddle? I have, and I always wonder if they are modelled pictures that were taken for marketing purposes or if hospitals are actually catching on and using the HALO SleepSack on newborns. It turns out, over 800 hospitals nationwide are using and providing HALO SleepSack Swaddles through HALO Innovations’ HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative.
I must admit, I’m a little jealous. I wish the hospital where I delivered my little girl would jump on the bandwagon to provide SleepSack Swaddles to their patients. Not only do newborns sleep better when they are swaddled properly, but they also sleep SAFER. It took me quite a few tries before I was able to master the swaddle fold with a blanket on my newborn, and regardless of how well or tight I swaddled her, she would always manage to come undone. One baby item I always recommend to new moms is the SleepSack because of its ease of use and safety.
