When becoming a parent of a newborn there are so many things to worry about. Are they eating enough? Are they warm enough? Is that a hungry cry or an “I just filled my pants” cry? But most of all we are concerned for their safety. This is where the HALO SleepSack Swaddle comes into the picture. You can keep your little one warm and cozy during nap/bed time without the use of bulky blankets that can be a potential danger to them.
But did you know that HALO also offers a SleepSack for Big Kids too??? I sure didn’t until I was approached by the company to review their product. Since my youngest girls are now two and four (certified big kids!) I couldn’t wait to try out the free HALO SleepSack Big Kids that was sent to us!
However, Central NY apparently had different plans in store for us in the form of summer-like weather straight into October….not that I’m complaining. Up until last week it has been too warm for more than a sheet, let alone the cozy SleepSack. The very first chilly night that we had we tried the SleepSack on for size!
The SleepSack Big kids is pretty similar to the original HALO SleepSack with one big difference, the unique foot openings! This is great for two reasons. First of all my girls all have a problem with wearing socks to bed. They complain about the heat and ultimately end up kicking them off during the night. You know what that means right? Missing socks!
Secondly, the opening at the feet of the SleepSack offer your newly walking or running toddler the mobility that they need before bedtime! Now I do want to mention that even though the size that we received was labeled as 2t/3t it was much too big for my 28 lb two year old. It was perfect for my four year old though. They do appear to run a bit big so keep that in mind when ordering.
Ultimately, my four year old loved wearing her SleepSack! She was able to sprawl out in bed without feeling restrained and stayed cozy warm all night without needing a heavy blanket. She especially enjoyed modeling for me. (notice she’s pretending to be asleep?) What. A. Ham.
Here are some quick talking points directly from the folks at HALO.
