Product Review

Two very enthusiastic thumbs up are given from me to the Halo Sleeper!  I have been trying to figure out how to keep the girls warm at night.  Last week, Maddie woke up about every hour.  I would cover her up and she would get uncovered within the hour and cry out again.  They wear fleece, footed pj's with a onsie and socks underneath. 

Then, I went to Kohls and they didn't have Krap.  In fact the woman accused me of not knowing how to take care of my babies and that I was keeping them too hot, then they sweat, then they get cold.  Okay, I'm not an idiot (most of the time!).  I understand that the scenario could potentially play out that way.  But that's not what's happening.   I know this because I am their mother.  :)  I know this because I am not an idiot and I would know if they girls were sweating so much to make their clothes wet at night and make them cold.  I know this because she should keep her big, pushy mouth shut!  ANYWAY.  (kinda went off on a tangent there, but it pissed me off pretty good.)

I read that a good rule of thumb is to keep them in one more "step" above what I am.  For example, if I am wearing a t-shirt and jeans, I should put the girls in a long sleeve and jeans.  If I am wearing a long sleeve, then they should have a light jacket.  So forth.  Well, I sleep on a heated mattress with a sheet and a comforter to cover me. PLUS, the dog is my personal space heater.  So, if I were to apply the above rule, the girls would need their pj's, PLUS a blanket.  Well, good luck keeping a blanket on them.  I thought we were going to have to turn up the furnace (yes, in CO we already have to run the furnace at night with our brisk 24 degree lows....it IS November for crying out loud!) that is already set at 70 degrees.

That is until the Halo Sleeper!!  The girls love it.  I put it over their jamjam's.  I didn't hear a peep out of them all night and when I went in their room to wake them up, they were both sprawled out sleeping like the lil angels they are!  yay!
