Halo Philippines hosted a Spa Party at Pink Me Up Beauty Bar last February 21, 2014.
At this event they rewarded me and my fellow Mom bloggers with some relaxing “me-time”.
Aside from the super relaxing me-time they also shared the importance of safe sleep for Baby.
Before anything else I’d like to share my own experience with this topic. When I became a Mom I also become more OC (sort of paranoid too!) with so many things especially in my child’s safety. There are days when I really get paranoid about his safety most especially when I’m at work. Of course, as a Mom you want to secure everything even when your child is sleeping. I remember those days when Cyler was still a newborn, when he’s sleeping I used to check his breathing from time-to-time. I guess for some people especially those who are not yet Parent it may sounds really funny (more like cray-cray!) but that’s how OC I am when it comes to my child’s safety. As a parent you care a lot about your baby inside and out. And one of the most important decisions you will make is how you put your baby to sleep. Did you know that it is often during sleep that babies are left unattended, and yet this is when they are most at risk of Sudden Infant Death (SIDS).
Ms. Ives Lim-Esteban, a safe sleep advocate shared the essentials in creating a safe and healthy sleep environment for our baby
Safe Sleep Saves Lives!
Due to a lack of public awareness, some parents may not appreciate that safe sleep could mean life or death for a fragile baby. The truth is, a gamble is made each time a baby is placed in an unsafe sleep environment: either tragedy happens or not – there is no middle ground and no second chances. Is your baby’s life worth risking?
In addition, the first few years of life are the critical years of brain and body development, where healthy sleep plays a vital role. Experts agree that healthy sleep is a prerequisite for a child’s physical and mental development. Poor sleep in infancy can lead to severe long-term effects such as difficulty socializing, depression, anxiety, and poor performance at school later on in life.
Safe Sleep Starts with Halo!
Safe and healthy sleep is now made easy with the award-winning HALO® SleepSack®. It is a wearable blanket worn over regular sleepwear as a replacement to loose blankets (which can cover a baby’s face and interfere with breathing). The HALO SleepSack can’t be kicked off, so your baby won’t catch cold in the middle of the night (and potentially get sick). Since your baby is warmly snuggled throughout the night, she sleeps better, longer.
But beware because not all baby safety products are approved by the Medical Community. What makes HALO products truly unique is that every single specification has been engineered to make your baby as safe as possible. HALO understands the science of “safety” that goes beyond the outward merchandise design. Other products may use fabric that contain toxins or carcinogenic dyestuff which are easily ingested through your baby’s immature skin. Poor-quality zippers may fall off and become a choking hazard. Even packaging may have dyes and toxins that migrate to the product.
HALO is a company that refuses to scrimp on quality and safety, even if it means paying a premium on manufacturing. Why? Because there is NO COMPROMISE when it comes to your baby’s safety.
All this makes HALO the #1 trusted brand by moms, and the ONLY brand used in over 1,000 US Hospitals. HALO is the only brand that carries the seals of leading SIDS and safety organizations, and is approved by the medical community – important factors to consider when choosing a safety product for your baby.
HALO SleepSacks also come in the SleepSack Swaddle variant made especially for newborns. It is the only 2-in-1 swaddle that allows for swaddling with arms in or arms out. It is also the only swaddle in the market that approved as hip healthy by the international hip dysplasia institute.
For bigger kids, the Halo SleepSack Early Walker prevents toddlers from kicking off their blankets so they stay warm and comfortable all night long. It comes with unique foot openings to provide mobility and comfort. The HALO SleepSack Early Walker aids in sleep training as it becomes the trusted bedtime routine, providing the secure feeling toddlers need to fall asleep fast and sleep soundly throughout the night.
Halo SleepSack is indeed trusted by most moms! Locally, HALO SleepSacks are available at www.halophilippines.com, Rustan’s, Babyland, Fishermall, Numa, and e-commerce sites like Lazada, Ava, and Cudsly.
Thanks again, Ives and Halo Philippines for having me in this event! I learned so much a lot and I hope you guys have learned too!
