The other day I visited a couple local stores looking for a crib skirt for Baby Girl’s nursery and I was sadly disappointed to find that the only options for crib skirts were packaged in crib bedding sets that included traditional crib bumpers. By now almost all parents realize the risks (strangulation, suffocation, etc) of traditional padded crib bumpers and that they should never be placed in their precious babies crib yet companies continue to sell them. I saw no point in purchasing a crib bedding set that included something that I was not going to use and that posed a serious safety hazard to my child. And that is why I was so excited to learn that one of my favorite companies – HALO – had begun selling a Safe Sleep Crib Set that includes everything your baby needs and nothing it doesn’t, pretty stinkin’ smart if ya ask me!
The American Academy of Pediatrics warns against loose bedding and soft crib bumpers in cribs so you won’t find any of those things in the Safe Sleep Crib Set – why? Because you don’t need them! Why pay for something to sit in the closet? Instead you will find the following:
decorative crib skirt
(2) 100% cotton jersey fitted crib sheets
SleepSack Wearable Blanket
The Safe Sleep Crib Set is available in six absolutely adorable designs including girl, boy, and gender neutral. I decided on the Jumbo’s Garden design for Baby Girl and it is absolutely adorable.
As I previously mentioned the Safe Sleep Crib Set comes with a 2-in-1 adjustable SleepSack Swaddle in size newborn (6-12 pounds) so that you can swaddle baby with their arms in or leave them our for an easy transition to the wearable blanket. The SleepSack Wearable Blanket is a nice cozy blanket that baby can not kick off and has no risk of getting caught around babies face. In the Safe Sleep Crib Set the wearable blanket will be a size small which fits from approximately 10 to 18 pounds. For my girls the size small would have fit them til their first birthday!
Something else that I love about HALO is that a portion of every sale goes to First Candle/SIDS Alliance and The Canadian Foundation for the study of infant deaths. Be sure to head over to the HALO website to check out all the other awesome patterns and to purchase a Safe Sleep Crib Set for the little one in your life. You can also find HALO products at local retailers such as Babies R Us, Target, Kohl’s, and more!
