The new HALO® SwaddleChange™
swaddles and soothes babies for stress-free diaper changes. The soft
plush cover fits over the entire changing pad like most covers, with the
addition of a sewn-in swaddle wrap that helps parents keep baby’s body
under control while he’s lying down. “We know how beneficial the Halo
SleepSack Swaddle is as a soother when baby goes to sleep. Now we are
applying the same comforting concept to diaper change,” comments Bill
Schmid, founder Halo Innovations. “According to mothers who tested
the new product, they found their babies to be calmer and happier, and
diaper changing became a faster, easier and more pleasurable experience
for both mom and baby,” concludes Schmid.
is made from plush Velboa, a machine-washable polyester fabric with a
soft, cuddly texture and comes in cream, sage, pink and blue to
coordinate with any nursery décor. Elastic all around ensures a secure
fit, and openings accommodate most changing the pads’ attached safety
strap. I will admit that the back in the middle is an elastic strap that goes across the opening to help keep it in place. My changing pad is screwed into the back of the dresser in 2 places to keep it from sliding off. That meant I had to cute the elastic in the middle so it would slip on the pad. It fit great I just wish that elastic had a buckle instead so that I could still use it. Cutting that elastic did not affect the use of it and it still fit great on my large contoured changing pad.

Here it is with an American Girl Itty Bitty doll for size comparison. So this would be what a newborn would look like using it. I do find it extremely soft and it has no scratchy material that comes near baby’s delicate skin. It did take me a minute to figure it out but it was a quick learning curve.
I currently use cloth diapers and I so wish I had this when Lil Sis was younger. I will admit that cloth diapers take a few extra seconds to put on baby so this would be great to keep babies’ hands away from the “poop zone” and to give me a few extra seconds to snap the cloth diaper in place.
Both my babies have been huge fans of the swaddle so I can only imagine how great a product would have been for them when they were younger. I am a huge fan of the Halo Sleep Sack and I feel like the new SwaddleChange is a great addition to the products that they carry.
