Babies spend up to 16 hours sleeping in their first year of life. Sleep is a crucial part of a baby's growth, and yet this is when they are most at risk of suffocation and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) – a sudden, unexpected death of an otherwise healthy and normal baby during sleep.
Parents need to know how to protect their babies while sleeping. Here are two very important guidelines according to the American Academy of Pediatrics:
1. To keep your baby warm, a wearable blanket is safer instead of loose blankets.
2. Remove all blankets, pillows, comforters and toys from your baby’s sleep area. Your baby’s crib should have nothing inside except a tight fitted sheet and only your baby in a wearable blanket.
Halo Sleep Sack Philippines, through its #SafeSleepPH campaign, aims to educate Filipino parents on the importance of safe sleep for babies.
The HALO SleepSack is an award-winning wearable blanket worn over regular sleepwear as a safer alternative to loose blankets. HALO products are backed by 20 years of SIDS and clinical research. It is the only brand that carries the seals of leading SIDS and safety organizations. All this makes HALO the #1 trusted brand by moms, and the ONLY brand used in over 1,000 US Hospitals.
Recently, some of the country’s most influential HALO moms and babies gathered to support the campaign:
