Toddler Who Refuses To Keep A Blanket On #HALOSleepSack



No matter how cold it is, or how tired "Baby O." is, she will instantly wake if you try to put a blanket on her. It's the second child syndrome, I suppose - she just demands to be.....difficult....different and refuses to keep a blanket on.

So, at the beginning of this winter, we created a bedtime routine that included a bottle, book, and "time to put your SleepSack® on."

I used HALO SleepSacks® and Swaddles with my first daughter too, because of the pediatrician's recommendation not to have loose blankets in the crib and have always found my kiddos preferred them to a regular blanket.

HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® wearable blankets have become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.

Some of you might know that we live in Texas, so odds would say that we wouldn't even need a fleece, well...anything!  However, we've had a terrible cold spell this winter, and last night was 19 degrees - so a kid refusing to wear a blanket is a serious issue.

If you were wondering how our dear, independent, difficult, determined-not-to- conform-to-the-norm, Baby O. responded to the "time to put your SleepSack® on" routine, she did AMAZING!

After a few nights of the new bedtime routine, including a bottle, story, kisses for daddy and sister, and putting the SleepSack® on, she began to sleep longer, sounder, and better than ever before.
