'Thank you all for all that you do. We truly understand that not everyone's card can be shown, and singing along with the Birthday Song will be more than enough for our son. We know your job is probably more stressful than we will ever know, so we just wanted you to know how much we appreciate all of you for bringing Sprout TV into our home. Thank you!'

HALO Innovations is dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. In fact, over 1,400 hospitals use HALO® SleepSack® wearable blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. The HALO family of products, including HALO SleepSacks and SleepSack Swaddles, SwaddeSure and the best-selling HALOBassinestTM Swivel Sleeper, help children from newborn to toddler age sleep better and safer.
Safe Sleep Tips
- Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time
- Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
- Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
- Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
- Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.
- Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.
- Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
- Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.

We've always been huge fans of all things reusable, 'green', or 'less' in the artificial ingredients and toxins department, so we've started a new routine of taking one item a week and replacing it with something better for ourselves or the environment. We've had great success so far with our our coffee creamer, reusable 'swiffer' dusters, and even reusable coffee filters I sewn from muslin. This week, we chose silicone cupcake liners because we've been encouraging portion control (which lets face it, is all out of whack in the great U.S. of A.), sensory play, and fun bento lunches. There's a million to choose from nowadays and I really wanted some that were true to color. I've had a few friends receive various brands and were disappointed when their colors fell flat, so after some research I stumbled upon the vibrant Sunsella Little Gems and crossed my fingers I found a winner. Just look at those colors!!
