Best for Babies--Halo SleepSack

I help a lot of moms figure out what they need most for their baby and also give advice on what makes a great shower gift. Right after a car seat (which you are required to have by law in order to leave the hospital), my top recommendation is the Halo SleepSack. That's because the SleepSack, essentially a wearable blanket, isn't just about comfort for the baby, it's also designed to help save their life. Every year, 5,000 babies dies of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and accidental suffocation. It's heartbreaking for everyone involved. The Halo SleepSack founder, Bill Schmid and his wife, lost their first born to SIDS. It was through their grief and loss that Halo was created. For more than 15 years the company has been educating parents about SIDS prevention and a portion of every sale goes to help charities in the fight against SIDS. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that blankets be left out of the crib to reduce the risk of suffocation. Parents looking for a safe alternative typically turn to the SleepSack. The company now makes an organic line and offers all kinds of fabrics and patterns for moms with particular tastes. It's my favorite gift for new moms because I know the baby will sleep better and safer.
