Halo SleepSack Swaddle {Giveaway - Ends 1/27} (CLOSED)

*This giveaway is closed. Congrats to the winner listed below.*



I know that many parents are using sleepsack swaddles for their babies. It's the wise choice for many reasons. Halo SleepSack Swaddles are some of the most popular ones on the market. Here is a little more about what they help prevent:


There are two aspects to swaddling safely: 1) Avoiding suffocation and 2) Preventing Hip Dysplasia.

Hip Dysplasia is one of the most common conditions among newborn babies, affecting about 1% of North American newborns (about 75,000 per year). According to a recent survey conducted by HALO Innovations, 82% of parents choose to swaddle, and swaddling improperly can lead to Hip Dysplasia or dislocation. Treatment ranges from wearing a harness or brace to undergoing surgery. These conditions can get worse with age and are linked to early adult arthritis and hip-replacement surgery.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging Pediatricians to watch for signs of hip dysplasia and dislocation and to warn parents not to extend their baby’s frog-like legs straight when swaddling. There’s a temptation to stretch the legs out and that needs to be resisted. They need to be able to straighten themselves out naturally and gradually. Parents should allow for room in the swaddle – or sleepsack – for baby to bend at the hips.

Dr. Charles Price, Director of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, has recorded the following video about Hip Dysplasia and how to swaddle safely. Feel free to use this video in your post.

Dr. Tanya Altmann, Pediatrician and Mother, provides tips for swaddling safely in this video, specifically about avoiding suffocation.http://www.youtube.com/halosleepsack#p/u/4/gOTGuUJmMk8  
HALO’s SleepSacks and Swaddles are the only products on the market approved “hip healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
