HALO SleepSack Giveaway




When I was pregnant with Mahayla, a childhood friend of mine lost his daughter at the age of 3 months from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The death of a child is always devastating but seems even more so when it happens so unexpectedly. I remember having trouble sleeping each night not because of a crying baby but because of my own fear that Mahayla too would die from SIDS. Unfortunately, this devastation has been experienced by families all over the world. Despite a dramatic decrease in the incidence of SIDS since the initiation of the national Back To Sleep campaign in 1994, SIDS remains the number 1 cause of death in children from birth to 12 months of age.  First Candle/SIDS Alliance are programs that are dedicated to the research, advocacy, and education to decrease the incidence of and prevent SIDS. First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers 10 simple guidelines to help reduce the risk of SIDS. One of those recommendations is the use of "wearable blankets"

HALO Innovations, Inc. is dedicated to creating a healthier and safer sleeping environment for adults and children. Founder William Schmid began researching sleeping environments after he lost a daughter to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 1991. Since 1994, he and his company have worked to develop products that encourage healthier and safer sleeping as well as bring peace of mind to your home. HALO offers a variety of safe sleep solutions for newborns, infants, and toddlers such as the SleepSack Swaddle; SleepSack Wearable Blanket; Technical Comfort System Layette with Cool Max Technology; and the Active Air-Flow crib mattress and secure fit crib sheets.


I used the HALO SleepSack Swaddle blanket with Mahayla and I loved it! It's unique 2 in 1 design both swaddles your baby and provides warmth thus replacing the need to use loose blankets. Mahayla always hated being swaddled in blanket...she liked having her legs free. The Swaddle blanket/sack would allow us to swaddle Mahayla's upper body but leave her legs loose in the sack.




HALO recently sent me a SleepSack Wearable Blanket to use when Tre' arrives next month and I can't wait to try it out! With the cold months coming, parents may be tempted to cover their baby with warm blankets which is a big no-no. The SleepSack Wearable Blanket is perfect for this time of year.The SleepSack wearable blanket replaces loose blankets for safer sleep. The SleepSack wearable blanket reduces the risk of rebreathing (the inhalation of carbon dioxide), which has been associated as a possible cause of sudden infant death syndrome. The SleepSack wearable blanket allows your baby to stay safe, warm and cozy all night long.

HALO SleepSack's are being used in hospitals around the country and are the only swaddle/sleep blanket of its kind to carry Seals of Approval or Recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics and leading SIDS organizations such as First Candle. Halo donates a percentage of their sales to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and the Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths to support SIDS research and education.

Win It: HALO Innovations is giving away a HALO SleepSack Blanket to one of my readers! All you have to do is visit HALO and let me know which one of their SleepSack Blankets you would want plus one other product you would want to try.

Piggy Paint Promotion



Okay mama’s, have you ever been trying to paint your toe nails and your child becomes obsessed with it and wants their nails painted too? If your child is like mine, they won’t relent until their toes look just like mommies. I’ve always been apprehensive to paint Mahayla’s toe nails because of the chemicals inside the polish and polish remover. Mahayla has very sensitive skin and eczema. She has contact allergic reactions to almost everything. If you or your child has similar issues, I have found the perfect product! Piggy Paint!

Mahayla and I got to have our “Mommy/Daughter Day spa” this weekend and we used our new Piggy Paint. Since Mahayla loves purple we used Piggy Paints Girls Rule! Nail polish. I already had store brand nail polish on my toe nails so I used the Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover. I took a bit more scrubbing to remove the store brand polish but it easily removes Piggy Paint brand polish. The real test was going to be how long the polish actually lasted. So far the polish has held up well and no chips yet. I have to say, I love it! Piggy Paint’s slogan is “Natural as Mud” because it pretty much is. Piggy Paint contains no harsh chemicals, it’s non-toxic, odorless, and hypoallergic! Since the product is all natural it is safe for your little one and the environment! The offer a wide variety of fun colors, nail polish remover, and gift sets.
 Piggy Paint has recently received the Excellence Award from Safebaby.com and now proudly has their seal of approval as an approved Vendor of Mom approved-child tested product!! As always, they use 100% reused peanuts from their local community to ship their products. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
PiggyPaint is offering all of my followers 15% off their order (including sale items)! The coupon code is THANKYOU15L and expires Valentines Day 2010! Orders over $25 have free shipping. So head over to their website www.piggypaint.com and order your some Piggy Paint for your little one!

Balboa Baby Sling Giveaway



I've been shopping around for baby "must haves" for little Tre'. One "must have" that I used with Mahayla was a sling. Mahayla had colic and one of the only ways we could keep her happy was either letting her live in her swing or carrying her around everywhere in a sling carrier..the latter caused my already bad back to hurt worse.  Balboa Baby recently sent me a wonderful sling and one that I wished I had the first time around!

Balboa Baby adjustable sling carriers have a  soft, comfortable, and natural design.  Balboa Baby Slings are designed to grow with your baby so one size really does fit all! Research has shown that cuddling or slinging your baby helps promote bonding, makes babies less fussy, and cry less. The Balboa Baby sling has wide contoured padded straps for maximum comfort and its sleek design helps distribute your baby's weight. (which equals less back pain) The Balboa Baby Sling design ensures your baby is safe and positioned close to you. The outside pocket fits your essentials which can be accessed easily.  Balboa Baby slings are convenient to use and store.







The Balboa Baby adjustable sling is available in 11 different patterns. One of my favorite features is the Owner's Manual that is included with the sling. I know you'd think that its pretty idiot proof but you'd be surprised. The Owner's Manual has instructions and illustrations for different carrying styles. These different carrying styles are unique from "store bought" brands that you can only use one way. Versatility to me equals more for my money.

The Balboa Baby sling was developed, tested & recommended by renowned Pediatrician and best selling author, Dr.William Sears.

Win It: Balboa Baby is offering one of my followers a Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling of their own (pick from classic black and blossom patterns). A $59.99 value! All you have to do is let me know which pattern you'd like to have!
