HALO Early Walkers Sleep Sack Starting at $14.21

Posted by on Mar 29, 2015

About the HALO:

Our founder Bill Schmid and his wife Cathy lost their firstborn to SIDS. From this tragedy, HALO® and its mission were born. For nearly 20 years we’ve been dedicated to putting the health, safety and well-being of babies first. From our best-selling SleepSack® wearable blankets that help babies sleep safely, to our award-winning Bassinest Swivel Sleeper that lets you sleep safely next to your baby, to our ComfortLuxe® Sleepwear that helps little ones with sensitive skin sleep more comfortably, all we do comes from one core idea – putting babies first.


I have always been a fan of HALO. And a huge fan of the HALO SleepSack. It was an absolute must have when I had little babies. No pulling off pants or dealing with snaps when changing diapers in the middle of the night. Just unzip, change, and zip back up. Genius! But what happens when your little one starts to walk? The SleepSack Early Walker that’s what!

Halo Sleepsack

The SleepSack Early Walker is perfect for your little one that is on the move. It has all the features you love about the regular SleepSack with the added feature of legs. Score! My daughter hates having a blanket on so the SleepSack is extra awesome for us. The fleece is super soft and warm, but not so warm that your baby is going to sweat and get too hot. The Sacks do seem to run large. So I would suggest sizing down for your child. I ordered a size L which is supposed to be for 12-18 months. It’s pretty big on my little one who is firmly in 18 month clothes.

If you are looking for something to keep your little one warm then this is for you! I’m so glad we have it and will be able to use it for the rest of this year as well as next.

The Dovekeepers Four Hour Event Starting March 31

This post is Sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer’s Network. All opinions are 100% my own.


I was utterly transfixed watching the story unfold of these empowered and brave women live, fight and be willing to die for what they believed in. It was well written, and what struck me most were the colors of the costumes. They drew me in and against the desert background stood out like a light in the dark. It pulled me into the point that it made me feel as though I was a part of the tribe. As if I was remembering the stories these women were telling along with them. As if I was another member of the group.

The many separate stories that intertwined with one another to tell this period in history is not unlike the relationships we feel today with those we love and are loved by. It hurts your heart at times to watch the suffering and hardships of a people willing to give all they had for freedom. I found myself cheering them on through the many battles they faced, cried as they did when one of their own was taken, and you long for the potential of such a life worth living – the acts and deeds these women accomplish were nothing short of amazing.

History is filled with heroes and heroines, triumphs and failures, the amazing and the unthinkable. These women were a part of this history and Dovekeepers captured the stories of a people that will never be forgotten.


Watch It:

Make sure to tune in on Tuesday, March 31 and Wednesday April 1 on CBS for this four hour event based on Alice Hoffman’s Bestselling Historical Novel About a Group of Extraordinary Women Whose Lives Intersect In a Fight for Survival at the Siege of Masada in 70 C.E. You can also check out a preview below. Don’t forget to set your DVR’s!


The project stars Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan and Kathryn Prescott in the title dovekeeper roles, Sam Neill as first-century Jewish scholar and historian Josephus, and Diego Boneta as a star warrior of the Jewish army at Masada. The series is based on Alice Hoffman’s bestselling, critically acclaimed historical novel about a group of extraordinary women whose lives intersect in a fight for survival at the siege of Masada. 

Set in ancient Israel, THE DOVEKEEPERS is based on the true events at Masada in 70 C.E. After being forced out of their home in Jerusalem by the Romans, 900 Jews were ensconced in a fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Besieged at Masada, the Jews held out for months against the vast Roman armies. The project will recount the events from the perspective of a few extraordinary women who arrive at Masada with unique backstories, but a common bond for survival. Additionally, these women, who work together daily as dovekeepers, are all concealing substantial secrets.

Hoffman’s novel was published in 2011 by Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, earning the New York Times’ bestseller status and widespread critical acclaim, including being hailed by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison as “a major contribution to 21st century literature.”

THE DOVEKEEPERS will be brought to television from executive producers Roma Downey and multiple Emmy Award winner Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, “The Voice”), the production team behind the Emmy-nominated 10-hour miniseries “The Bible,” which scored big ratings for the History Channel in March 2013, and the feature “Son of God.”

Frank Siracusa, John Weber and Yves Simoneau also serve as executive producers, with Simoneau directing. Ann Peacock adapted the novel for the screen.
