Recently, HALO® has introduced a new product that will keep your babies close to you during the night, while keeping your baby safe and sound. I honestly wish I would have known about this product before Luke was born. It would have been perfect for me, especially since I had a hard time getting in and out of bed from the C-Section.

Unlike some co-sleeping products on the market that do not address the safety concerns of bed-sharing, the Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is the first bassinet product to provide both convenience and safety. Baby sleeps in his/her own separate sleep area, reducing the risks associated with bed-sharing. Mom can easily get in and out of bed, as well as tend to baby without having to get up. You can see the new Bassinest Swivel Sleeper in action here.
One thing that is a must for me with my littles has been swaddling. We’ve been a Halo SleepSack swaddle and SleepSack user for both babies. I fully believe that a good swaddle is a necessity for a good sleep. I notice a big difference between the quality of sleep both of my littles got when they weren’t swaddled compared to when they were.
Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
Room-share, but don’t bed share; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend against bed sharing as it can lead to an increased risk for accidental suffocation.
Use a crib or bassinet that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
Remove all soft bedding 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.
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.
