Program Reviews & Case Studies
More than 1,700 Hospitals Use HALO to Promote Safe Sleep Education
Our founder, Bill Schmid and his wife Cathy lost their first born to SIDS. From this tragedy, HALO and its mission were born. For more than 20 years we’ve been educating parents about safe sleep practices and supporting safe sleep organizations such as CJ First Candle, Cribs for Kids and the Canadian Infant Safe Sleep Project. Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets.
Today, HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are the #1 trusted choice of hospitals and are used in the United States and Canada to help babies sleep safely from the start.
