Halo Safe Sleep Crib Set

My son is 6 years old now. He's not a baby anymore. I keep asking him if he'd like the be my little baby again, but he says not and won't stop growing. Hmph!

It's amazing to see how many things have changed in 6 years for babies. Plenty of baby gear has come onto the scene that wasn't big or around at all when my son was little. Other things have become more and more common.

And there have been some new updates and changes that the American Academy of Pediatrics have recommended. If/when I would have another baby, I'll have to read up on these things really well. One of the recent changes that I've heard about from the American Academy of Pediatrics is no crib bumpers. While that has been commonplace for years, now we must start to adjust.

The product: Now there is a great alternative for putting baby to sleep safely. The HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set is just what you need to take care of your baby.

With the American Academy of Pediatrics now saying “no” to crib bumpers, HALO Innovations has introduced its own Safe Sleep Crib SetTM designed to create an attractive and safe sleep environment for babies.

The five-piece HALO Safe Sleep Crib Set consists of a HALO SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, both in 100% cotton; two coordinating crib sheets in soft cotton jersey; and a matching crib skirt.

“Too often parents ‘overdress’ the crib with quilt and bumpers, both of which can pose a breathing threat for baby,” comments Bill Schmid, founder of Halo Innovations. “The Halo SleepSack and SleepSack Swaddle are the only things a baby needs in the crib to stay warm and sleeping safely, and the soft jersey sheet provides a snug fit on the mattress.

The new HALO Safe Sleep Crib Sets are available on amazon.com and babiesrus.com. The set comes in six patterns including pink, blue and neutral tones.

What I thought: We received the green Halo Safe Sleep Crib Set. It is really cute. I could see this being a great accent to any nursery. It fits for boys or girls. The set contains 2-in-1 adjustable SleepSack Swaddle, a SleepSack Wearable Blanket, two 100% cotton jersey fitted crib sheets (one solid and one coordinating print) and on coordinating decorative crib skirt.

Whether for your own baby or a shower gift, this set is a must-have baby item. It contains all the great things that you'll need for baby to sleep safe and sound. This set is available in 6 varieties- Blue, Dog, Green, Caterpillar, Caroline, and Jumbo. Two each of girl, boy and gender neutral varieties. It gives you options for everyone.

I like that the sheets and sleepsacks are all cotton. They are so soft to the touch and perfect for baby. The designs are cute and easy to coordinate with other things in the nursery too. This is a must have set for every new mom and baby.

Where to buy: You can find the new Halo Safe Sleep Crib Sets from Amazon.com and Babies R Us.

I love everything that Halo makes. However, on the subject of crib bumpers, I urge all parents to do their research on which product is the best for you. With my 3rd child, I did do the research and I definitely decided to remove the "traditional" crib bumpers, but the alternative bumpers on the market provide safety to your child while allowing for 100% free airflow throughout the crib. I went with a "ventilated" slat bumper system and I love it. Now that my child is a toddler, I found that this product cannot be used at a step to crawl out of the crib.

Again, I urge everyone to do the research.
