I was contacted by HALO Innovations (the maker of sleepsacks) and asked to do a post about my favorite items for babies (with a giveaway). Since I’ve already done a raving product review a couple months ago, Halo Sleepsacks are of course included!
The term “must-haves” is a little tongue-and-cheek. Of course, these things aren’t really totally necessary, but they do make life a little easier. If I was headed to a deserted island and could only take a handful of baby items (besides diapers), these are probably what I would grab!
1. Chicco Travel System. We chose to purchase the Chicco Cortina KeyFit 30 Travel System when I was pregnant with Big Brother. I read Consumer Reports, reviews from Amazon and Babies ‘R Us, and surveyed friends prior to making our purchase. The carseat and stroller have now been through 2 kids and on countless trips across the country and have held up incredibly well. We have adopted the policy on major purchases such as this one to do our research and agree to spend a little more money up front for a product that is quality and will last. And the stroller is a tank…it would definitely perform well in the various terrains on deserted island. :)
8. Halo Sleepsacks. After about a month or two, the boys could get out of their swaddle, so we switched over to Halo Sleepsacks. They are wonderful! They allow your child to stay warm while sleeping by literally wearing their blanket, therefore minimizing the risks of SIDS. I wrote a complete review of them a couple months ago here. We are still using them for Little Brother every night…and he is now 14 months old. If you are having a baby or need to buy a shower gift, you’ll want to get at least one of these in every size!
