Halo Sleep Sack Review and Giveaway {closed}



I am not necessarily an over-protective mother but I am anal retentive. I hate to let Dexter grow up too fast. That being said, Dexter has slept in a Sleep Sack since he was born. I had one that was 12-18 months that was too small for him but I kept him in because it prevented him from crawling out of his crib. Time was up and I needed to go on a mission to find a toddler sleep sack! As if that was going to be an easy mission, right? Well much to my shock and delight I discovered that Halo, the brand that I have trusted for so long, now makes Big Kid's Sleep Sacks!!


At first I wasn't sure about the fact that there are foot holes so that kids can put their feet out of the Sleep Sack. I thought it would distract him and let him figure out a way to crawl out of the crib after all. I was wrong and I am so glad that I was. The only thing he would do is stick his feet out enough to whip his socks off before his nap!

Sleep is very important and now that I have another baby on the way (Yay!!!!) I am going to have to get some more infant/newborn Sleep Sacks. They give me piece of mind knowing that my baby will not get tangled up in blankets and suffocate! That sure is a parent's worst nightmare!

The wonderful people at Halo would like to give one DSSM reader their choice of Sleep Sack! They even make an organic blanket! Just head over to Halo and pick out which sleep blanket you would like to win and in which size/color. Come back here and tell me your choice and leave your email address if it isn't in your profile.

The big kids sleep sack would be perfect for my son. I used to keep him in one and then he outgrew it. I didn't know they made a big kids and he is still in a crib, so the red with blue car would be awesome!

Congrats on your pregnancy!!! :-)
