Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the HALO SleepSack wearable blanket?

Slip the SleepSack wearable blanket over your baby's regular sleepwear as a replacement to loose blankets in the crib. You will normally want to put a short or long sleeve shirt, bodysuit or a cotton coverall underneath the wearable blanket depending on the room temperature.

Don't put your baby to sleep wearing a hat, as this can result in overheating.

What is the difference between 100% Cotton fabric and Microfleece fabric?

The 100% Cotton fabric is suitable for day time naps and warmer weather, while the Microfleece is a slightly thicker and warmer fabric, best used for air-conditioned rooms and night use. All HALO SleepSacks are made with the safest, non-toxic premium fabrics.

How many pieces should I invest in?

We recommend stocking at least 2-4pcs initially to cover for "accidents" (pee, poop, etc...) and laundry time. Make sure to invest in an assortment of 100% cotton and microfleece fabrics so your baby is ready for any temperature condition. You can add more pieces as you go, depending on your lifestyle.

Won't my baby get too hot wearing the SleepSack wearable blanket?

The SleepSack wearable blanket is suitable for a wide range of temperatures by adjusting the clothing you put on your baby underneath the wearable blanket. They can wear anything from just a diaper underneath this cuddly fabric, to a coverall or sleeper.

Many parents have reported that their babies sleep better with the HALO SleepSack since they stay covered all night long.

Why is the SleepSack sleeveless?
