It's SIDS Awareness Month - HALO SleepSack Giveaway

I received no product or compensation for this post.  This post is in partnership with PR firm.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


October is SIDS Awareness Month, a great time to remind parents, grandparents and caregivers about safe sleep for baby. Here is some info, tips and advice about safe sleep:

3,500 Babies - Number of babies that die each year from SIDS and SUIDS.

1 way to put baby to bed - "Back is best" - Baby should be placed on his/her back, and alone in a crib or bassinet that is free of any soft bedding, toys, pillows, etc. HALO is the #1 choice of hospital nurseries.

5 times - A 2013 British study concluded that bed sharing increased the risk of SIDS by five times, and according to the AAP, bedsharing is the number one cause of death among infants up to 4 months.

68-72 degrees Farenheit - Recommended temperature to keep baby's room.

1500+ hospitals - The HALO Safer Way to Sleep program is in 1500 birthing hospitals and teaches new parents safe sleep techniques through demonstration by the nursing staff. This reaches nearly half of the 4 million babies born each year in the U.S.


HALO founder Bill Schmid started the Safer Way to Sleep in-hospital program about 8 years ago, and today it's in 1500 birthing hospitals. Those hospitals have swapped the traditional receiving blankets used in the nursery and NICU for a HALO SleepSack Swaddle which is an easier and safer way to swaddle your newborn, all part of practicing safe sleep for baby. Neo natal nurses demonstrate safe sleep techniques on your own newborn making it easier for you to replicate those methods at home.
Win It!

One person will win a HALO SleepSack Swaddle in choice of design.

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*
