I was chatting with a mom just the other day and, before I knew it, I’d come out with at least 3 reasons I loved to use a Halo Sleepsack during travel with a baby-through-early-toddler. Here’s the top one.
You might already know it as a safe solution to blankets for back-sleeping babies, but during travel, when cribs can be smaller than yours at home and resort rooms tiled to potentially painful perfection, he won’t be able to clear the rail of the travel crib before you rise and shine. And if he’s old enough to get curious about the zipper, you can always put it on with the zipper in the back to give you more lead time.
Plus, instead of leaving it up to the hotel to decide which detergents will be on blankets right next to her skin (especially in hot weather when just a cotton blanket will do), you’ll have your trusty Sleepsack laundered with your own familiar detergent at home.
Halo Sleepsacks are available in fabrics for every season, from light cotton for summer vacation snoozes to cozy fleece for a long winter’s nap. Sizes range from Preemie to XL, which can fit some children up to 36 lbs.
TIP: I recommend ordering a size larger for longevity and packing two for each trip so you’ll have a backup if needed while the other drips dry after a sink washing (the fleece dries especially fast).
