The HALO SleepSack swaddle is the only 3-way baby swaddle that adjusts to fit baby's sleep style. Swaddle with arms in, hands-to-face, or with one or both arms out to ensure baby’s best sleep. With adjustable fasteners for a perfect fit, it nestles baby like a soft blanket without the risk of sleep-related dangers—so baby can sleep both comfortably and safely. We think it’s such a brilliant idea, but what did our parent testers think? Keep reading to find out what they thought of the HALO SleepSack Swaddle.

Back is best! So Zayn has been swaddled since birth and loves it, so of course we had to try out the Halo sleepsack swaddle. It has 3 different ways of use, (the only 3 way swaddle might I add!) arms in, hands-to-face or with arms out. I’ve always been wary of blankets at bedtime so this is the perfect alternative. The arms in approach also prevents any startle reflexes.
I love the signature ‘Back is Best’ embroidery. It adds a lovely little touch and of course a gentle reminder to parents when I comes to bedtime.
The swaddle comes in two neutral colours, Grey and White, which means it is the perfect item to pack in your hospital bag if you do not know the gender of your baby.
It is soft, well made and true to size - it comes in sizes 0-3 and 3-6 months. The swaddle sleepsack comes in a 1.5 tog which is perfect for our room. It is a lightweight swaddle, yet keeps my boy nice and cosy. The roomy sack design promotes healthy hip development, which is always a must! The inverted zip also makes it so much easier to change your little one at night! Without all the hassle of taking their whole outfit off - we all know how hard that is!
I love the Halo sleepsack swaddle and Zayn does too. It arrived beautifully packaged, with eco-friendly packaging. I’d definitely recommend it to any mummy or daddy’s to be!

The Halo SleepSack Swaddle was delivered really quickly and was packaged in a beautiful recyclable paper bag. The sleepsack was in a box with full instructions and details about the product written on the back which was handy to read before I opened it.
It arrived in grey and 3-6 months which is exactly what I expected and it looked just long enough to fit my long 4 month old baby in.
We used it for the first time after a bath, he always cries when getting out of the bath so after a nappy change and a new vest, I popped him in the sleepsack and swaddled him up. He instantly started to relax and smile. He fell asleep within 30 seconds in his Moses basket without me needing to hold him.
He only had a short sleep and woke up again so I to settled him again in the sleepsack with his arms out for the rest of the night which I think he prefers as he’s not used to being swaddled anymore now he’s bigger and can roll over.
The sleepsack swaddle is high quality but thin and stretchy, so won’t cause baby to overheat while swaddled. But due to being thin, baby should be dressed accordingly to the temperature underneath the sleepsack.
I don’t think it is something I will use every night as I feel it’s more suited to newborns and Ollie is nearly 5 months old and very active, but I will use it for when he is fighting sleep or if I need him to sleep earlier as he’s a night owl.
The sleepsack swaddle really helped him calm down and drift off when he was crying so I think he must feel safe and secure when swaddled up right just like a cuddle.
