From The Manufacturer

The HALO SleepSack Early Walker replaces loose blankets in the crib. With its unique foot openings, the SleepSack Early Walker wearable blanket allows for greater mobility while babies are awake, but also keeps little feet covered and warm while sleeping. In addition to helping your baby sleep safer, the HALO SleepSack wearable blanket helps your little one sleep better, too. It is a warm cuddly blanket they cannot kick off, ensuring little ones sleep soundly throughout the night. Foot openings for easier mobility when your child is awake and room to tuck in feet at night for warmth. Unzips from the bottom for easy diaper changes. Generous sack design allows room for kicking, but cannot be kicked off, so baby stays warm all night. 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, all we do comes from one core idea – putting babies first.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

This model is made with fleece but you can also get a version in the lightweight cotton material for warmer climates.
We love that it’s sized to allow children to tuck their feet inside or keep them out.
It has foot openings that help improve mobility when the baby is awake. It also boasts a room to tuck in the feet of your baby at night.

This sleep sack is perfect for older kids who may not necessarily need a sleep sack but are active sleepers that cannot keep blankets on through the night. It can also become a part of bedtime routines and help little ones know when it is time for sleep.
We absolutely love our SleepSack and we’re already huge fans of HALO! The only thing I would change about this SleepSack is the material. While I like that it’s breathable it catches lint/hair and has a few little pills of fabric after just a few washes. Otherwise – no complaints!
I really love that the material is light weight and zips up right over her jammies. It also has leg holes at the bottom so they can walk around.
I honestly thought I would have to force him to wear it, but every night, he nods his head enthusiastically when I offer it to him.
The infant sleep sacks come with a cuddly warm blanket your baby cannot kick off and enjoy a much comfortable sleep. It comes with foot openings offering mobility to your kid when awake even though keeping feet covered, soft and warm at the time of sleep.

What reviewers didn't like

Some mothers found the sizing too large for their babies.
Runs big, but that’s how it should be.
- Ah Joo
While the Early Walker is an innovative sleep sack, there are a few downsides to it. It is one of the few wearable blankets in the review made from synthetic material, and some parents notice a chemical smell that stuck around even after washing.
The only design improvement I would suggest for the Halo Sleep Sack Big Kids would be footies! They could roll over to cover cold tootsies, then roll back up if the child prefers to sleep (like me) barefoot. Ideally, they’d have no-slip soles, too.
