Safe Swaddling with HALO SleepSack Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Babies all over the world will be swaddled up and staying warm over these cold winter months, but the question I have is--Are you practicing safe swaddling?
A study recently released in the "Archives of Disease in Childhood" finds a connection between tight swaddling and post natal hip dysplasia. Study author Dr. Nicholas Clarke, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at the Southampton University hospital in the U.K., states: "In order to allow for healthy hip development, legs should be able to bend up and out at the hips. This position allows for natural development of the hip joints. The babies' legs should not be tightly wrapped in extension and pressed together. Commercial products for swaddling should have a loose pouch or sack for the babies' legs and feet, allowing plenty of hip movement and hip flexion and abduction."
Thousands of babies suffer from hip dysplasia every year and Orthopedists have recently discovered a connection between hip dysplasia and tight swaddling. Swaddling an infant has many positive effects, but unfortunately many parents are taught to swaddle the baby's entire body to create a tight cocoon. The restriction of movement in the lower half of the body can lead to post-natal hip dysplasia.
That's why HALO has become a world leader in safe-swaddling advocacy and offering parents everywhere safe swaddling products for their babies!  That's why I was so excited when I received the HALO SleepSack Swaddle Micro-Fleece Space Robot for my upcoming baby boy!
The HALO SleepSack Swaddle is fantastic!  It replaces loose blankets that could cover your baby’s face and interfere with breathing and instead swaddles them safely and comfortably for an easier and safer rest! The adjustable swaddle wrap immobilizes your baby's arms to prevent the "Moro" or startle reflex but also has the 2-in-1 feature that allows for swaddling arms in OR arms out.  This helps ensure an easy and gentle transition to the SleepSack wearable blanket when it is time to stop swaddling.   Lastly and most importantly, the HALO SleepSack is recognized as “Hip Healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.  We can't wait for the baby to use it soon!!
