If you’ve seen pictures of my littles here on the blog or IG, you’ve probably seen both of them in their Halo SleepSacks. Both AG and L we’re swaddled from their newborn days on. They started in the Halo swaddles and moved up to the SleepSacks.
Over the past few months, we’ve been in the process of transitioning L out of his swaddle, which has been much more difficult than it was for AG. L loved his swaddle, we tried to remove it around 5 months and went for a week of little sleep before realizing he wasn’t ready to let it go. While L may not be the best sleeper, things are much much worse when he isn’t swaddled. I’m talking waking up hourly! My baby boy loves to be snuggled tight, so we decided to go back to swaddling and therefore sleeping! We knew he’d let us know when he was ready to move on up.
Around 6 months, he decided he no longer wanted to be our baby burrito. It was time to move him to the SleepSacks. The SleepSacks still give him the comfort of being “wrapped” but with more freedom with the open arms. Thankfully the transition was much easter the second time around and he’s able to sleep comfortably at night. The only sleep sack brand we’ve ever used in our home is Halo. We started with AG and haven’t switched. As the saying goes, if it’s not broken, why fix it?
HALO is a company dedicated to creating safe sleep environments for babies via safe sleepwear (SleepSacks and Swaddles) and now the BassinestTM Swivel Sleeper.

Recently, Halo has launched it’s new spring line of SleepSacks. Aren’t they adorable? Luke can be found in his elephant SleepSack most mornings. If I had a baby girl, I would be all over that precious bird print!
