Ford is to the age where it is almost impossible to change his diaper in under a minute because I spent 75% of the time trying to get him to stay in one place. I've stopped changing him on his changing table because I can turn my back for half a second and he is popped up on his tummy. Cue mama heart attack. This is where Halo Sleepsacks come into play. Not only do we use Halo Sleepsacks for safe sleeping and SIDS prevention (read my previous review here), now that Ford is becoming mobile, we use them to keep grounded. I've heard mamas say that because their babies have been in sleepsacks since they were young, they don't climb out of their cribs. Once Ford started getting up on his knees and being able to stand, I had nightmares of hearing a thud because he'd climbed out of his crib. I immediately lowered his crib and decided he would be in a sleepsack as long as they make them big enough!
I plan on keeping Ford in a Sleepsack throughout the summer too. Paired with light cotton pajamas, it is the perfect (and safe) way to keep him comfortable in bed.
HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. Today, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.
