Have you ever wanted to be that mom that co-sleeps with her newborn, but were way too freaked out about smothering your little one? Your bed is typically a place of comfort, but many moms struggle with keeping things safe for baby when sharing a sleeping space. If you want something akin to co-sleeping, but with clear and safe boundaries, the Halo Bassinest offers the perfect solution.
In addition to its ability to fit right next to your bed, the Halo Bassinest lets you tend to your baby with as little work as possible. Whether you’re dealing with countless night feedings, or just a baby that needs frequent reassurance, no one likes getting in and out of bed over and over again. You and your partner will both enjoy a more restful night with the help of the Bassinest because you don’t even have to get out of bed to tend to your little one.
Having had a C-section with my first child and a vaginal birth with my second, I can safely say that this bassinet will benefit any recovering mama. Those recovering from surgery will especially appreciate the benefit of not having to engage sore and healing muscles to get in and out of bed, but can instead take advantage of this nifty and convenient bassinet.
Features of the Bassinest include an adjustable height and lowerable side wall that let you have easy, convenient access to your baby all night long. The swivel design has a 360-degree movement radius so you can bring baby closer when needed, while returning them to a safe distance when you’re both ready to return to sleep.
How it Compares
As far as bassinets go, this one has everything you need. Some are flimsy and others are stiff and hard to move—especially if you’re half asleep. But the simple circular movement in the Bassinest makes it easy for you to function during those wee hours to care for your baby. All you need to do is swing the bed closer, lower the side wall, and feed your baby. Every movement is smooth and simple, all the way around.
The DockATot offers a safe sleep solution for those wanting to share their bed with their newborn, but if you sleep better with your bed to yourself, the Bassinest is the best option for you. I personally don’t really sleep well until the baby is out of my room, which is pretty impossible during those first early months. It’s for this reason that I’m definitely investing in a Halo Bassinest in the future!
Playards, bassinets, and pack and plays all have their virtues, but the Halo Bassinest lets you enjoy the benefits of all three: safety, convenience, durability, and collapsibility. What I like best about this product is that it is designed with both baby and parent sleep needs in mind, for the perfect sleep for everyone involved. At least for me and my family, sleep = happiness.
Fitting beds from 24-34 inches in height, the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper includes a steel and aluminum frame with safe plastic coverings. The bed itself features a comfy mattress and soft-fitted sheets for a complete JPMA certified sleep solution.
When you purchase the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, you’ll receive the swivel sleeper, fitted sheet, and storage pocket for a complete sleep system. The Halo Bassinest is perfect for babies up to 5 months old, or 20 pounds, whichever comes first.
