And the Winner Is: Halo Swaddle SleepSack

Life outside the womb is a major adjustment for a newborn. After months of being curled up in a dark, warm, snug space, the harshness of our big, bright, open world can be pretty jarring. It’s no wonder, then, that infants find comfort in environments that remind them of their in-utero home. A swaddle is a great way to mimic that snugness, helping to soothe and lull them to sleep. But especially as a first-time parent, figuring out how to effectively swaddle your newborn often proves tricky—babies have a knack for busting out of their swaddle blankets, which wakes them up and creates an unsafe sleep environment due to loose bedding. The Halo SleepSack Swaddle is beloved by parents for its easy use: Simply zip up the sleepsack and wrap the Velcro swaddle bands around baby for a snug, secure fit. Of course, a swaddle also serves as a safe way to keep your little one warm, since blankets are off limits until baby is at least a year old. Thankfully, the Halo swaddle comes in a variety of fabrics to keep your infant at an ideal temperature, regardless of the season. It’s no wonder this swaddle is the number one choice of hospitals.

What We Love

• Thanks to the zippered front and Velcro fasteners, the Halo offers a quick, foolproof way to swaddle your newborn—a godsend when you’re a bleary-eyed parent trying to get your infant to sleep. Bonus: The zipper is inverted, meaning you don’t have to remove the swaddle during those middle-of-the-night diaper changes

• You can get a nice tight swaddle with the fasteners, but the sleepsack still offers plenty of room for baby to bend their little legs, earning it a stamp of approval as hip-healthy by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.

• As your infant grows, the Halo can be adjusted to keep pace with baby’s evolving preferences: You can swaddle baby with both hands in, both hands to face, one arm out or both arms out.

• The swaddle is available in a range of fabric weights, including cotton, fuzzy Velboa, micro-fleece and even a temperature-regulating IntelliThread fabric
