Halo Introduces SwaddleChange™ Changing Pad Cover for Stress-Free Diaper Change

Too often for parents, changing a baby’s diaper can be more like a wrestling match. Babies wriggle and squirm and sometimes try to put their hands where you wish they wouldn’t. Or they cry and fuss because they find it uncomfortable to be uncovered.

Diaper changing can now be easier and less stressful for babies and parents alike. Halo Innovations, maker of the best selling HALO® SleepSack® wearable blanket, is introducing the HALO® SwaddleChange™ a cuddly cover for the changing pad that features an attached, adjustable swaddle wrap to help keep baby comfortable and little hands under control when changing his diaper.

SwaddleChange™ is Finalist in JPMA Innovation Awards Competition

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. The new product making its debut at the 2012 ABC Kids Expo has already been tapped as a Finalist in the JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) Innovation Awards Competition which highlights the most creative and useful products in the juvenile industry.

The SwaddleChange changing pad cover is made from plush Velboa, a machine-washable polyester fabric with a soft, cuddly texture and will come 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. The new cover will fit babies up to one year and beyond depending upon weight. The suggested retail price is $21.99.
