Safe sleeping is of the utmost importance to HALO, makers of safe sleeping products for infants and young children. The founder of HALO is a SIDS dad which, while incredibly heartbreaking, has probably resulted in countless little lives saved from similar tragedies because of his passion to help babies sleep safely. If I were to trust anyone's advice regarding safe infant sleeping practices, it would be from HALO.
When it comes time to decorate your baby's nursery, what do you REALLY need? One part that you can count on being pretty easy with HALO is the crib decor. With HALO's SleepSack Crib Sets, you have everything you need to get started and none of the frivolous stuff (ahem, bumpers and decorative blankets). Available in 6 different prints, these 5-piece crib sets include a SleepSack wearable blanket, SleepSack Swaddle, two soft 100% cotton jersey fitted crib sheets and matching decorative skirt.
I LOVE this set. I'm definitely looking forward to stashing it away for my future baby girl (some day!). The SleepSack wearable blanket is a newborn size and makes swaddling super easy with it's gentle velcro wings. The SleepSack Wearable Blanket is a size small, fits 0-6 months and allows you to put your baby to sleep safely without any loose blankets. The fitted crib sheets are fabulously soft, high quality, and have elastic all the way around and not just the corners. This will keep them on nice and snug! It's so nice to have an extra sheet included (although personally I prefer to have about 5-6....Buddy was a messy baby....). And the decorative crib skirt, oh how I love thee! It's such a beautiful design and the bright tones make me so happy. It really sets the tone for baby's nursery theme and with all the colors you can really go a lot of ways and directions for the rest of baby's nursery.
While your mother's generation may tell you that you need a crib bumper (and you turned out okay, right?), you really don't. It's all for show, restricts air flow around your baby and can potentially suffocate them also. Did you catch that? Bumpers are horribly unsafe and incredibly unnecessary. I think the simplicity of the HALO SleepSack Crib Sets are perfect as they are and they're the first crib sets I've seen that don't include a bumper (which is great because I would throw it away anyway!). If you feel like you need something, check out the "breathable" bumpers out there made of mesh to keep in arms and legs (and pacifiers!). Otherwise, it's best to keep it simple and bumper-free with HALO SleepSack Crib Sets which you will love to pieces.
