If asked for a recommendation for a bedside bassinet, I would highly recommend the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper without hesitation. With a heavy base, the Bassinest will never accidentally topple over, providing a secure sleep environment for a new baby. However, the base is still compact, requiring only 32 inches of clearance, meaning the Bassinest is ideal for smaller spaces. The adjustable height means the Bassinest fits perfectly almost any bed, and the swivel action allows a parent to easily get in and out of bed. Mesh sides provide another safety feature while keeping a baby at eye level. Other little features such as a storage pocket and a timed light show that HALO goes above and beyond in designed products for babies that parents trust. I highly recommend the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper to any parent wanting to share a room with a new baby.
I had my second C section and got to use this Bassinest! This product was really helpful in my recovery. I love how it can adjust to your bed and come right up next to you even over the mattress. I could swivel the Bassinest out of the way to get out of bed instead of scooting (which would be painful since my C Section) to get off the bed. I love how I can set the baby in the Bassinest because the arm retracts, this was helpful so I wasn’t using my stomach muscles to lift or set my baby down. The “Soothing Center” was very helpful too, the two options I mostly use are the light, which was great because I didn’t have to get up and turn the bedroom light on, and the vibrating which soothes my baby back to sleep. I would definitely recommend this product! It helped me get more sleep and have an easier recovery!
Of all the baby things we’ve accumulated over the years, THIS is the one thing my husband and I absolutely love. For our first, we used a full-size co-sleeper. While we definitely liked it and used it, we had no idea how much better life could be… until now. Pretty much heard angels sing when we took down the co-sleeper & put the Bassinest up in its stead. The main difference between the two is all the ways you can move and swivel the bassinet part: away from the bed, closer to the bed (vs stationary & anchored to your bed ala co-sleeper). Now I don’t have to scootch all the way to the bottom of the bed to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night anymore! I was worried I would lose the ease of an attached cosleeper with breast feeding, but the collapsible side takes care of that. Did I mention I can easily get out of bed by simply swiveling the bassinet outward?There’s a vibrating button, a music button, a light button… even a button to time your feedings (haven’t used this one). We’ve had the Bassinest for about a month and so far, no complaints. I wish we could use this longer, but at the rate this kid’s growing, we’ll probably be done next month. Definitely worth it.
I love my HALO™ Bassinest™! It has been a great help in the first few weeks after my cesarean. The swivel feature makes nighttime feedings much easier and I also appreciate that the side lowers to make picking up and comforting my little one much easier from bed. It is nice that I’m able to keep her at less than arm’s reach because of the adjustable height; this allows me to keep her just over the edge of my bed. My baby really seems to enjoy the heartbeat sound option when she’s settling down for the night. A great safe sleep option!
I love the swivel feature! This feature enables you to get in and out of bed effortlessly, make the bed and more importantly brings the baby to within my reach. I wish I had the Bassinest when I had my first child. This is a must-have to include on your baby registry or baby wish list. It creates a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for the baby while being a huge convenience for both mom and dad.
