Halo SleepSack® is now available for Cebu parents

CEBU CITY, Cebu – As today’s generation of mothers continue to become more involved in raising their babies and toddlers, HALO SleepSack® introduces its brand of wearable blankets to promote its safe sleep advocacy to the Cebuano parenting community.

The HALO SleepSack® wearable blanket replaces loose blankets in the crib that can cover the baby's face and interfere with breathing. Additionally, HALO SleepSack® help babies sleep better, too. It's a warm, cuddly blanket they can't kick off, ensuring your little one sleeps soundly throughout the night.

Ives Lim-Esteban, the “mom-preneur” behind Halo Philippines, together with Maria Carmen Tormis-Abayon and Alexa Marie Lelis-Dano, HALO SleepSack® authorized distributor here in Cebu, discussed about the brand and its products to Cebu community last May 20 at the Birdseed, Axis Entertainment Center, N. Escario St., Cebu City.

HALO’s philosophy stems from its commitment to putting babies’ safety first, which guides the company in developing and manufacturing its wearable blankets.

Among its range of products include:

HALO SleepSack® Swaddle - an adjustable swaddle wrap that immobilizes baby’s arms to prevent the “Moro” or startle reflex. It’s 3-in1 adjustable swaddle that allows for swaddling arms in or arms out for baby’s comfort and to ensure an easy and gentle transition to the Halo SleepSack® wearable blanket when it is time to stop swaddling.
HALO SleepSack® – is the original wearable blanket. It was created by Bill Schmid after losing his daughter to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The Halo SleepSack® wearable blanket has been carefully crafted to ensure all aspects of the products are the safest it can be. Like its sleeveless design, to help reduce the risk of overheating; a room, “hip-healthy” sack to promote health hip development.
HALO Early Walker – it is a warm cuddle blanket little ones can’t kick off, ensuring they stay covered all night long. Its unique foot openings allow for greater mobility while babies or toddlers are awake, but also keeps little feet covered and warm while sleeping.
HALO Big Kids – is designed in response to countless parents looking for larger sizes of wearable blankets for preschoolers. It has been “kid-tested” and parent-approved for comfort and ease of use.
Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets. Today, HALO SleepSack® products are used by over 1,400 hospitals and natal intensive care units (NICUs) to promote safe sleep, and by millions of parents world wide to help babies sleep safely from the start. The HALO SleepSack® is the only safe sleep product that has received recommendations and approval by the American Academy of Pediatrics, U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, International Hip Dysplasia Institute, leading SIDS organizations and the medical community. It is also the recipient of prestigious awards and recognitions certifying it to be safe and health for babies.

HALO SleepSack® products are now available in Cebu at Rustan’s, Mothercare, Rainbow Tots, Modern Mama, and Baobao Babies.

April 2016 WrapUp

Yep, another sushi lunch experience from Buffet 101, this time courtesy from company’s team building budget. I realized that my serving consist mainly of rice...lots of carbohydrates it is. We also planted watermelon in our little home garden but unfortunately the watermelon was infested by aphids and because I don’t want to use pesticide or  soap solution to spray on it, I had to remove the watermelon vines to avoid infesting other plants. Need to study more on home gardening, huh :) . We were invited to Maggy’s birthday party and get to watch magic show for free. Thanks again for the invitation. 

Found these adorable puppies for free adoption and as much as the kids want to take them home, we have to accept the truth that we can’t afford the have one or even the responsibility of raising one… soon maybe. Worthwhile talk with friends, talks about childhood fun, high school misadventures, college problems, lovelife, kids, today and future. Having to live far from hometown, seeing a childhood friend is surely a remedy. Ramen! Craving satisfied!

This kid easily gets tired carrying his stuff, huh! He said it is heavy! Tried the brownie recipe from my mommy friend Jinx but seems like it's a bit dry. Maybe too long in the oven. Also tried another recipe from my friend from the other side of the word, Ange and Ross, but the husband said that the taste is not the same as what Ange made. Oh well! There is always first time. 

At last, the kids get to enjoy summer. Enjoyed a ride from a merry-go-round and some splashes to beat the summer heat at Bahia Resort.

Trying out a new shawarma menu from Shawarma Gourmet Cebu. There shawarma is flavorful but servings are small for their price. Nevertheless, I still love to go back there. It rained last month and I'm thankful for this blessing from heaven..thus trying on macro shots on rain drops.
