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.
