Infant sleep safety & HALO

Bill Schmid founder of HALO with baby
Founder of HALO, Bill Schmid

When HALO’s founder, Bill Schmid lost his daughter, Haley, to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), it became his mission to create innovative products that make safe sleep easier for parents and more comfortable for babies. HALO is committed to safety, which is one of the reasons why they are The #1 Trusted Choice of so many hospitals.

The most significant risk in a baby’s sleep environment is loose bedding. Bedding can accidentally cover a baby’s face and interfere with breathing. With this risk in mind, Bill founded HALO Innovations and created the HALO SleepSack Wearable Blanket, which eliminates the likelihood that a baby can get entangled in clothing or loose bedding during sleep. The SleepSack is sleeveless and is worn over a sleeper or pyjamas. Since its launch, the HALO SleepSack has become a bestseller and is widely used by hospitals.

In investigating the SIDS problem, Bill also came to the conclusion that education on safe sleep was not adequately reaching all parents.  Research has demonstrated that modeling proper safe sleep guidelines is the most critical factor in changing parents’ behaviour. Recognizing this, Bill launched an education program called the “HALO Safer Way to Sleep Hospital Modeling Program” which provides free HALO SleepSack wearable blankets, educational tools and training. To date, the HALO SleepSack Swaddle is used in over 1500 hospitals.

In addition, Halo Innovations donates a portion of all purchases of HALO products to leading infant health and safety organizations to facilitate educating parents about infant safety.  To date, more than $5.4 million has been donated in HALO’s mission to help fight Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Travel Value

Child watching plane - Baby Travel Tips

These days, most of us are trying hard to get good bang for our buck when we splurge on a vacation.  Calgary and Edmonton offer great value to the 15 million people who visit every year. 

The good deals start at Calgary and Edmonton International Airports, where the luggage carts are FREE.  There’s no need to struggle to find the right change in the right currency. 

Both cities offer value to visitors in terms of transportation.  In Edmonton, kids under 13 ride Transit for FREE when accompanied by a fare-paying adult.  Meanwhile, Calgary Transit has a FREE fare zone.  If your hotel is at one end of downtown and you want to shop at the other end of downtown, just jump on the C-train – for FREE.

Edmonton offers FREE rides on its glass funicular – a glass walled elevator that moves on a rail up and down the steep hill that separates downtown Edmonton from the North Saskatchewan River Valley.  A beautiful and accessible ride!

You can savour some culture for FREE in Calgary.  Check out the Esker Foundation contemporary art gallery or if it’s the first Thursday of the month, you can visit the Glenbow museum for FREE from 5 to 9 pm.

And come summer, you can always count on FREE pancake breakfasts during the Calgary Stampede or during Edmonton’s K-Days. 

At One Tiny Suitcase, we look forward to helping our customers find extra value when they’re travelling.  Some of our baby equipment rent for just $5/day (like baby gates, toy packages, exersaucers, swings, booster seats).    We also provide FREE linens and set-up for our full-size cribs. 

And don’t forget:  You can have a FREE Fisher Price booster seat when you order other baby gear from us. 

We look forward to being of service to you.
