Halo SwaddleSure makes bedtime easier

by jessicalieb on March 23, 2015 · 7 comments

Abel is a pretty easy going baby but some nights getting him to sleep can be tough.  He doesn’t always like to be swaddled but on the nights when nothing seems to be helping him I wrap him in the Halo SwaddleSure and it’s like magic. He almost always falls asleep within a few minutes.

I’m not saying it works every time but there is just something that is very comforting to him about the Halo SwaddleSure. He also sleeps more soundly when he’s wearing the SwaddleSure. In fact, I sleep more soundly when he’s wearing the swaddle too.

The Halo SwaddleSure Adjustable Swaddling Pouch is the safe, easy and secure way to keep your baby sleeping longer and more peacefully. Its innovative design with adjustable fasteners make it easy to swaddle correctly for a perfect fit every time.   Plus, its patented three-point fastening system resists “breakouts” for superior, more secure swaddling.  Its generously-sized leg pouch help baby’s hips stay in the correct, frog-like position which ensures healthy hip development and allows easy access to baby’s diaper for diaper changes.  Use over regular sleepwear to take the place of loose blankets.

I love that the SwaddleSure provides a secure and safe wrap around the arms and torso yet lets the hips and legs move freely. At first all of the different components and straps may seem overwhelming but it it actually fairly easy to use. After the first fitting you can easily adjust the fit so that baby remains comfortable all night long. I also really like that there is easy access to the bottom half for quick night time diaper changes.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
After living in a cult for fifteen years, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper – The Office) decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore. Wide-eyed but resilient, nothing is going to stand in her way. She quickly finds a new job (working for 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski), a new roommate (Tituss Burgess – 30 Rock), and a new beginning. The cast also includes Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda and Emmy winner Carol Kane (Taxi, The Princess Bride).

Joe and I started watching and immediately fell in love with the quirky comedy. It’s quickly becoming one of our favorite shows. Rather than binge watch the entire series we are pacing ourselves so we can enjoy the awesomeness as long as possible. It is quickly becoming one of our new favorite shows.
