HALO SleepSacks for Toddlers Review & Giveaway

From the time that I found out I was pregnant, I had many seasoned mothers (and people who just liked to give advice), advise me not to put blankets in the crib. I was told that to keep my baby warm I should layer him in cozy sleepers, swaddle him, or put him in SleepSacks. These days I feel comfortable sticking a blanket in with my 19 month old, but my biggest problem with blankets is that they are constantly falling off! Regardless of how many times I check on my son, the blanket is never on him! It's infuriating especially during the winter time! Thankfully, HALO has come up with a solution for our toddlers to stay toasty without a blanket! I'm excited to introduce you to the HALO SleepSack for Toddlers!

*I received a complimentary HALO Sleep Sack for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

HALO Innovations Inc. is dedicated to creating a safer and healthier sleeping environment for both children and adults. The founder of HALO Sleep Sacks founded the company in 1994 after loosing his daughter in 1991 to SIDs. William Schmid worked to develop a product such as a wearable blanket to keep little ones safer while asleep and to give parents peace of mind. Today the HALO SleepSack is the #1 trusted brand for parents and hospitals nationwide, and they even donate a percentage of their sales to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and Canadian Foundation for the Study of Sudden Infant Deaths, to fund further research and education for the cause. 

HALO SleepSacks generously allowed me to choose one of their SleepSacks for Baby A and I to check out for review! I will admit, I never had any SleepSacks when Baby A was an infant but I after trying out this one for toddlers, I really wish I had! Although Baby A is only 19 months old, I decided to request a HALO SleepSack in their 'Big Kids' size 2T-3T so that he would have room to grow. Living in Arizona, the weather doesn't stay cold for long, so I wanted to be able to have it for next winter as well as the cooler nights during our quick springtime. When it arrived, I couldn't wait to wash it and put Baby A in it! 

The HALO SleepSack 'Big Kids' has unique foot openings so that your little one can have mobility when they are awake, but they're nice and roomy so that they can tuck their feet into the SleepSack when they're asleep. Thanks to the sack design, your child won't be able to kick off the SleepSack ensuring that they will be warm and cuddly all night long. The SleepSack is sleeveless to make it more comfortable for your child whether their wearing a long sleeve shirt or short sleeve shirt underneath of the SleepSack, and offers a unique zipper that zips from the top [going] down to give you peace of mind that your little troublemaker isn't going to unzip themselves and run free! The HALO SleepSack is available in three different fabrics to accomidate various climates and seasons; Polyester Comfort Mesh, Micro-Fleece, and a Polyester Lightweight Knit.  

We received the Big Kids SleepSack in the Polyester Lightweight Knit and I was very impressed with how lightweight it was. It still had enough weight to it that it would keep my sweet little booger comfortable and warm during the winter, but was light weight enough where he could wear it during the spring and possibly even the summer. The material is very soft and breathable which is perfect for evening playtime and of course, bedtime! I love that the SleepSack is embellished with an embroidered monster truck, it gives the SleepSack a little something extra! Baby A hung out in his SleepSack for the evening playing with his toys, reading with mommy (me!), and watching a few minutes of Mickey Mouse before bed! He was super comfortable and even though the SleepSack was a little big on him he had no problems walking around in it and seemed to have no problems with wearing it! 

The HALO SleepSack is a fantastic investment for parents with children of all ages to keep their kids cozy and safe while they sleep! With the various fabric and sizing options there's no reason why you shouldn't pick up a couple for your child to relax and sleep in. HALO SleepSacks fit newborns all the way up to children approximately 5 years of age!
