A HALO SnoozyPod review and Lincoln’s bedtime routine that helps him sleep all night long!
Thank you to HALO for sponsoring this post! Of course, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that I love and that make Polished Closets Possible!
Any other moms out there sleep deprived?! For the first few months of Lincoln’s life, sleep was inconsistent. He would sleep when he needed to and was awake for short periods of time. As a person who craves routine and a schedule, it was SO HARD for me to adjust to this lack of consistency.
But, around four and half months old, Lincoln slowly adjusted to a day time schedule and night time routine. And, we decided to transition him from his bassinet in our room to his own crib in his nursery. However, as we were loosing his swaddle (that kept his arms snug to stifle his startle reflex), he had a really hard time falling asleep and staying asleep on his own. Any mom who has spent 15-30 minutes rocking their child to sleep only for him or her to wake up five minutes later…it can take a toll on you!
The HALO SnoozyPod came at the perfect time. We were trying anything and everything to help Lincoln sleep in his crib, but nothing was working. The HALO bassinest and the HALO swaddle were the products we could not live without when Lincoln was a newborn. So, I knew we needed to give this SnoozyPod a try. Not only did it help Lincoln learn to fall asleep on his own and stay asleep, it also saved my sanity.
So what exactly is the HALO SnoozyPod? It is a vibrating, all-in-one bedtime soother that helps infants and toddlers have their best sleep. The SnoozyPod fits under your child’s mattresses, leaving a flat and safe sleep space. It has multiple settings, including a starry night projection, womb-mimicking white noise, nature sounds, and soothing vibrations.

Another amazing feature of the SnoozyPod is the technology. It is bluetooth-enabled, meaning you can control the settings without interrupting your child’s sleep. Nothing wakes up a baby like a creaky floorboard or a squeaky door! Parents can download the app on their phone and change the settings as needed.
We love how lightweight the fabric is on the HALO SleepSack! Lincoln can wear his cute footie pjs under his SleepSack without getting overheated.
Lincoln always goes down to sleep on his back, even though he can roll over.
And he now sleeps like a champion!! Not only does the soothing vibrations of the HALO SnoozyPod help him feel comfortable, but the SleepSack keeps him cozy. Now that Lincoln rolls over in his sleep, the SleepSack allows him to have freedom of movement. He can easily roll over and move around while he sleeps – and believe me, he moves ALL OVER his crib at night!
You can use the HALO SnoozyPod throughout your child’s life. It is great for transitioning from bassinet to crib and crib to toddler bed! The main goal of HALO is safe sleep. When your child is happy and comfortable in his crib, he is most likely to stay in the safest place for him – his own bed.
