Big Kids Like HALO SleepSacks Too

Every now and then it hits me just how quickly Keira is growing up. Yesterday she was wandering around the house with a pink Hello Kitty purse over her shoulder pretending to shop for groceries, and I realized she’s not a baby anymore. She’s turning into a big kid right in front of my eyes!

Even though Keira’s growing up, she still sleeps in her crib sidecarred to our bed, and this child is a restless sleeper. It’s not uncommon for me to wake up with her feet in my stomach or stretched across me. A regular blanket wouldn’t last an hour on her, so I keep her warm with a wearable blanket every night. I’ve used Halo SleepSacks with both my girls since birth, and they’ve always kept my babies safe as well as warm.

This HALO SleepSack Big Kids comes with unique foot openings for easy mobility.

As Keira gets older and more mobile, the next logical step is to move up to the Big Kids style of SleepSack with foot openings. I received this micro-fleece HALO Sleepsack Big Kids in size 2-3 years for review. This style of SleepSack looks oversized, but it’s important to remember that it’s a wearable blanket, not a sleeper. It’s designed to be roomy enough for kids to pull their feet in at bedtime and kick and move their feet around inside it. Keira’s only 19 months old, so this SleepSack has lots of room to grow into. I think she’ll be able to wear it until she transitions to a toddler bed and real blankets.

The foot openings are genius. Other wearable blankets can only be used in bed, but with these foot openings, Keira can wear her Big Kids SleepSack while she’s playing or snuggled up reading stories with me, and she stays warm yet still mobile. She had a similar SleepSack Early Walker in a smaller size so she already knew to stick her feet through the openings for easy walking. Keira loves the adorable little elephant applique on the front and often gives it a couple of hello pats when I first put the SleepSack on her. The zipper zips from the bottom for easy diaper changes in the middle of the night. The only thing is, while I like that feature right now, I’m not sure how well the reverse zipper will work when we start potty training.

The Early Walker and Big Kids SleepSacks come in micro-fleece (like the one I reviewed), comfort mesh (Early Walker only), and now in a new lightweight knit fabric. I like that I can choose different weight options depending on the season. HALO SleepSacks are made from 100% polyester and very reasonably priced. While I usually prefer natural materials, one bonus of using micro-fleece is that if Keira’s diaper leaks a little, the fleece repels the moisture and helps keep the sheets dry. The material is soft to the touch and easy to care for. Just throw the SleepSack in the washing machine with like colours. Plus I love how quickly the fleece dries!

  • Oh this is so cool! I didn’t actually know that HALO did SleepSacks for bigger kids. My son is 20 months and I’d love to get him a big kids SleepSack. Most of his pajamas are two piece sets these days, and he always kicks his blankets off at night and then his feet get cold and he wakes up. This would be a great solution for him.

  • I didn’t know they had them for toddlers – my daughter is nearly growing out of her early walker ones!

  • I learned that they make sleep sacks for toddlers, special ones for toddlers that have already started walking.

  • I love that they have so many different choices of materials , lightweight knit, comfort mesh, and microfleece! Perfect for all the different seasons we have here

  • These Big Kid Sleepsacks are awesome!
    I love so many things from HALO, my favorite item is the Organic Cotton Infant Swaddle SleepSack. My first baby is due next month and I love reading up on all the great baby wear and gear available.

  • I never realized that they had Sleepsacks for toddler and big kids. Would love the one with the train on it for my nephew since he loves his Choo-Choo’s!

  • We love the Halo sleep sacks for our son who is now 15 months. I’m thrilled to learn about the early walkers series and can’t wait to try it!

  • I like that it is basically a blanket that can’t be kicked off, ensuring that baby stays comfy and warm.

  • How cool that there is a ‘big’ kid size?! I would love if they made the swaddle sleep sac for longer/bigger kids as well 🙂

  • I like that they make things for bigger kids. My son sleeps better with his HALO Sleepsac. Still swaddled.

  • I love that they make sleep sacks for bigger kids too! I read about hip dysplasia. I never knew that it was more likely to affect first born girls. My oldest daughter was breech (which is supposedly also a risk factor) and she had a hip click when she was super young too but it all sorted itself out very quickly. We swaddled her but we knew to swaddle with her legs not straight

  • I really like the early walkers, I wish I had one of these with my first baby. I also like the wearable blanket.

  • These are so neat! The bedroom where our toddler is going to be moving soon is very cold at night no matter what we do and this would be a great option!

    • I really like that they come in several different fabric choices so you can customize your sleepsack choice to fit your climate and the season.

  • love the sleepsack swaddle. it swaddles and if your baby doesn’t like to be swaddled at least they still have the sleepsack. I like the no blanket part. the bee buddies matches my daughters room

  • Wow their sale section is pretty awesome—this deal is greathttp://www.halosleep.com/halo-sleepsack-5-piece-crib-set-100-cotton-my-dog-sam/

  • Oh my great nieces would so love these I think they are so sweet I learned and think it is amazing that 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets

  • Wow, I didn’t realize they go all the way up to 5T! We love our Halo swaddlers and sleep sacks, and look forward to using them in the future!

  • I love the Micro-Fleece Cupcake Sleep Sack. I need to get one for my grand-baby. She always kicks off the blanket, and it’s been a cold winter!

  • I love that the hospital program that HALO has. It is fantastic to educate new parents about sleep safety before they even go home.

  • Love the fact that the hospitals use them ♥ I also really like the HALO SleepSack Wearable Blanket in Striped Hearts

  • I love that Halo received the Home Safety Council Commendation Award for Product Innovation for Consumer Safety

  • I really like that they have swaddles as well as the big kids sleep sacks! this would be such a great product to get for my son!
