Mommy Must Haves & HALO Sleepsack Giveaway!

I often get asked what I think are must haves for moms to be.  It might be that I am often traveling with my posse of three children aged four and under but, whatever it is, something about me just oozes baby gadget knowledge!  When I had A&W I had NO CLUE what I was going to need and went through Babies 'R Us zapping a bunch of randomness onto my registry that I "thought" I might need.  Oh, boy could I have used a little guidance
 
HALO (their wearable blankets rank as one of my favorite baby items!!) recently polled its Facebook community to find out the top gifts received at baby showers.  How I wish this list had been available to me before I had the twins!  Here are the results:
  • Diapers
  • SleepSack wearable blanket
  • Outfits and other clothes
  • Car seat
  • Pack n play
  • Activity gym
  • Stroller
  • Carrier or sling
  • Breast pump

I could not agree more with this list and think you can't go wrong with these basics!  If you have a baby on the way or are shopping for a baby gift arm yourself with this list of must haves!

The Halo SleepSack easily makes my list because they are a safe way to keep your baby warm during bed and nap times.   I am not alone in my love of HALO products...they have just been nominated for a Cribsie Award in the "Best Sleep-Inducing Swaddle Blanket" category.  I think they are a shoo-in!  If you would like to cast your vote you can click here.
