Benefits of Swaddling brought to you by the new SwaddleSure by HALO Adjustable Sleep Pouch + Giveaway

As a new mom, I can tell you those first few weeks with your newborn are nerve racking.  You are constantly wondering if you are doing things right, and hoping you are making your new little one comfortable.

From the moment Caleb was born, he was just the sweetest little thing.  I will not lie when I say we instantly bonded and I am loving every minute of it.

I brought my SwaddleSure by HALO sleep pouch to hospital with me along with my bag of :everything I really want to use from day one: so Caleb was put in the SwaddleSure by HALO Sleep Pouch from day one.  And from day one, he slept SO well and was hardly fussy.  If he was fussy, I would swaddle him and it seemed like he instantly calmed.  Caleb Halo Sleep Sack

The SwaddleSure by HALO Sleep Pouch is my favorite swaddle wrap because it is SO easy.  In 3 quick steps, he is swaddled, comforted, and happy :-)

Swaddle Sure How To

Some benefits to Swaddling are:

  • Swaddling is a great way to soothe and calm a fussy baby by giving him a feeling of security, similar to being in the womb.
  • A newborn cannot regulate his temperature as well as an adult, so swaddling keeps his body warm. (Just make sure that he doesn’t become overheated.)
  • Swaddling often helps a baby sleep longer because it prevents the sudden movements (startle reflex) that can cause him to wake up.
  • Swaddling can help a baby focus on breastfeeding, helping to keep his arms and legs out of the way
  • Swaddling prevents a newborn baby from scratching himself with his nails.
SwaddleSure became available in January 2015, and can be found at babiesrus.com and buybuybaby.com for a suggested retail price of $14.99.
Also- one VERY important thing about the swaddle sure is the Hip Healthy design.  One os the common worries of Swaddling is hip dysplasia from wrapping the legs.  With the design of this sleep  pouch the legs are loose, so Hip Dysplasia is not a concern :-)
SwaddleSure
I am a huge fan of swaddling and the Halo SwaddleSure is my top pick of all the swaddle wraps I have tried.  If you are expecting… definitely add this one to your registry :-)
And now for the giveaway!  I am giving away ONE SwaddleSure by HALO Adjustable Sleep Pouch to ONE lucky Mommy Has A Life winner.
