The Story Behind HALO

Trusted and beloved by American parents for over 25 years


When HALO's founder Bill Schmid lost his firstborn to SIDS in 1991, he made it his life’s mission to ensure another family wouldn’t have to experience the same tragedy. Using his expertise as a professional engineer, he designed America’s first wearable baby blanket—also known as the SleepSack Sleeping Bag.

HALO®’s mission has been to create simple, innovative products that make safe sleep easier for you—and more comfortable for your baby.

Growing product range

Since then, the HALO SleepSack has continued to be a category leader and the number one choice of American hospitals. HALO has gone on to create a whole range of products all thoughtfully developed and diligently tested to help babies sleep safely. Today, HALO's responsibility and dedication to safe baby sleep continues as a trusted resource for the modern parent.

Growing international audience

In 2020, HALO debuted in Europe to share their safe sleep mission and products with a growing international audience.
