Halo SleepSack Swaddle

Did you know that approximately 100,00 babies are diagnosed with hip dysplasia each year? Many infants are born with this condition; however, according to Dr. Chad Price, Director of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, others can develop it through improper swaddling. Price says, “Parents must be taught how to swaddle baby correctly so hips have freedom of movement, and knees can be extended.” We just received a Halo SleepSack Swaddle blanket in the mail today, and it has been approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as “Hip Healthy”. Phew. That is good to know! I did not know swaddling was such an exact science. The design of the SleepSack Swaddle permits full range of movement for baby. Check it out on their website. ┬áThe product we received, (the brown sack, shown below) retails for $28.95. ┬áHalo products are also sold at Target and diapers.com.
