My Favorite Baby Gift + Giveaway - Handmade in the Heartland

My Favorite Baby Gift + Giveaway

A few weeks ago i started tweeting. I know i'm way late in realizing this whole twitter world, but i'm getting with it. Once i started connecting with people and brands on twitter i saw that Halo SleepSack had a twitter and i was feeling friendly so i tweeted that their sleepsack is my go to baby gift and i have probably given over 20 away to friends and family having babies (true story).  I was super excited when they tweeted back (people do that on twitter!) and then they sent me a message asking me if i wanted to do a giveaway on my blog! awesome! 

Here are a few reasons why they are my go to babygift:
-My babies both lived in them for the first 2-3 months (see photos below) 
- I love that they are always in stock at target and i can run there to pick one up if i need one in a hurry.
-They are super easy to get on and swaddle tightly- the sack part zips up the front so its super easy to get them in it and then the two side panels velcro around to make the swaddle.  --I take them to the hospital because its so easy to get on and keep tight- when they are newborns i hate to feel like i'm throwing them all around to get the blanket behind and around and whatnot.
-They can't get out of it! no little hands creeping up and out (well until they are about 3 months old and then they are just strong) 
-I also love that they have different sizes- at about 3 months i bought June the size S and it worked for about another 2 months until she was just too strong to stay in any swaddle and then we moved to Halo's sleep sack- basically just the sack without the swaddle flaps.  I'm a fan of the sack's because you don't have to worry about the blanket getting all wrapped around them or smother them or something like that.  Its a "wearable blanket"!  As part of this sponsored post Halo sent me a new one for June! so nice and you can see photos of her in it below :)

Also Halo is doing this awesome new program where they are partnering with hospitals, wouldn't it be awesome if they had these at the hospital already and you didn't have to bring your own?! yes please!
It's called the  HALO® Safer Way to Sleep Initiative.  Here's the deets:
HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® Swaddle has become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALOSleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Leading health organizations agree that modeling proper baby care in the hospital is the single biggest influence on how parents care for their baby at home. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention. 

You can follow Halo on Pinterest, Twitter, or Facebook.  You can buy them at the Halo Website, Amazon, Target, or Babies R Us
