Halo SleepSack Review and Giveaway Can/US

I have heard of sleep sacks but have to admit I have never used one and kinda thought they were a bit out there as a necessity for a newborn, cause you know... any old blanket will work...right?  Well Yes any old blanket, that is until your baby starts to flail their arms everywhere and wakes themselves up MANY times a night..  And any new Mom knows that extra wake ups are not wanted!!  I decided to give a sleep sack a try with DS4 and WOW I wish I had bit the bullet and tried one with DS1!!  Man does it help and make a huge difference!  
Halo SleepSack

I have to say that after having 3 babies I am proficient at swaddling babies, but no matter how tight or perfectly you swaddle after about the first week babies start getting some strength in their arms and poof right after you lay them down with your fingers crossed that maybe you'll get a few precious hours of much needed sleep, they flail their little arms smacking themselves in the face and startling themselves awake and you cry...Until the Halo SleepSack or as I have started calling it Momma's sanity!
All I have to do is place baby in the sack, zip it up and swaddle his arms with the Velcro arms!  So easy, comfy and snug!  And it keeps us both happy and rested!!  I love that the zipper is inverted(zips from the top to bottom) as it makes diaper changes fast and easy and baby stays nice and warm the whole time. 
I was a bit worried when I was picking out my sleep sack that with my big babies I'd need a larger size to start with but after receiving  the size small I found it is huge and I really could have easily gotten away with ordering the newborn size. I actually bought the gift set in a size newborn and it was still very roomy for my 9 pound boy!  The sleeper still fits him at 3 months old and was way to big when he was newborn! I actually had to wait for a few months till he fit into the size small to really test it out!  We went camping for Canada day long weekend and this was Perfect!!  I knew DS4 was safe wrapped and warm and that all his little fingers and toes where inside the nice warm blanket!!!  I Loved it and he slept the best out of all of us the whole weekend!
The very best part of the Halo SleepSack is it helps to prevent against SIDS by keeping baby warm and wrapped without having loose blankets in the bed.  Loose blankets are a hazard as they can cover babies face and get wrapped around while sleeping.  Over 1000 hospitals have also started to use the Halo SleepSack for newborns to promote safer sleeping habits and Halo donates a portion of each sale to the First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the study of Infant Deaths.  Halo also offers safe sleep educational materials free of charge on their website!!
