We all know that sleeping is one of the most important things for both babies and new moms, but not a lot of moms realize it.
Along with the wonders of sleeping there are also dangers that all moms need to take in consideration. For that reason — and because we love babies — the #LatinaGeeks team wants to dedicate this post to Sleeping Safety.
One company that is truly involved in making sleep a safer activity is HALO Innovations. They are dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. In fact, over 1,300 hospitals use HALO® SleepSack® wearable blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. The HALO family of products, including HALOSleepSacks and SleepSack Swaddles, SwaddeSure and the best-selling HALO BassinestTM Swivel Sleeper, help children from newborn to toddler age sleep better and safer.
Our favorite product from their catalog is their HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, it combines safety and technology! It features a timer, three soothing sounds, three lullabies, a night-light, soothing vibrations help ease your little one into sleep (each with 30-minute auto-shutoff for convenience) and it rotates 360° to help you bring baby close for safe sleep.
With their HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, you can keep your little one close, which eliminates the risks of bed sharing by providing your baby with a separate sleeping area. The sleeper has a patented side wall that lowers and returns automatically, so you can care for your infant while staying in bed. . Breathable mesh walls keep your infant visible at eye level, and the four-point base is stable. You can adjust the base to fit beds from 22″ to 34″ high and it requires only 32″ of clearance from the wall for tight spaces.

Do you want to learn how to help you baby sleep safely? Check out this Safe Sleep Tips:
Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.
Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.
Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
