Holzer is proud to implement the Halo SleepSack Swaddle on the Inpatient Maternity and Family Center at the Gallipolis Medical Center. All infants born on the unit will be swaddled with a Halo Sleepsack Swaddle to be utilized while the infant is in the Hospital. In addition, Halo Sleepsacks Swaddles are available for purchase in the Hospital Gift Shop for $19.95. Two options are available for purchase for boys and girls, as well as a mint green preemie option for purchase.
Why Swaddle with a Halo rather than a blanket?
The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended no loose blankets in the crib, but rather wearable blankets. Nurses throughout the US use HALO SleepSack wearable blankets on babies in their care as well as their own children. For the newborn, the HALO SleepSack Swaddle is a foolproof way to swaddle baby safely as it wraps around baby’s upper body allowing the legs to move freely for proper hip development.
