HALO®, the maker of the HALO SleepSack® Swaddle Wearable Blanket, offers the BassinestTM Swivel Sleeper, a revolutionary baby bassinet that makes sleeping close safer for baby and easier for mom. We received a Bassinest for review; however, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
Hi friends! If you haven’t heard already, at the end of October we welcomed our new little guy Adrian to the family! Things have been a little hectic since – it’s been a few years since we’ve had a newborn in the house and oh boy do you forget the chaos, as sweet as these first few weeks have been. And some of my favorite updates to newborn life since we had our last little one is in the sleep department. This time around we’re equipped with HALO SleepSacks and the Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, which has made all the difference!
The Bassinest’s unique dual-swivel design allows baby to sleep as close as Mom wants – even right next to her in bed. The Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is the only bassinet that moves to bring baby to Mom. It allows baby to sleep in his own separate sleep area, reducing the risks associated with bed-sharing. Here, take a quick look:
Let’s face it, the first few weeks are tough no matter what. Short sleep cycles, endless feedings and if you’re like me, you may also be recovering from a C-section. This is my third so I’m well aware of the drill, but let me tell you when I heard about the Bassinest I was really interested in it from a recovery standpoint. With its patented retractable wall, I can get Adrian at night without getting out of bed and in the morning I can simply swivel it to the side to get out of bed easily. If you’re having a C-section, I highly recommend the ease of use of the Bassinest!
And let’s take a moment to talk about those HALO SleepSack® Swaddle Wearable Blankets! I didn’t know about the SleepSacks when my first two were born and boy I know now what I was missing! Having had all cool weather babies, I know the struggle in wanting to keep your little one warm, but safe. Since it isn’t safe to add blankets to your little one’s sleep area, these wearable SleepSacks are perfection! And I love the option of arms in or out of the SleepSack Swaddle – we learned early on that our little guy LOVES for his arms to be out!
So this is my typical morning…getting out of my side of the bed with my little guy right beside me!
So we’ve had a great experience with the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper and if you’re in the market for a bassinet, we think you will too! And there’s more great news! HALO Bassinest has a new series coming out this month – HALO Bassinest LUXE and LUXE Plus. It features a new lemondrop print as well as a soothing center with night light, 3 lullabies, 3 soothing sounds, 2 levels of vibration, a nursing timer and a coordinating storage caddy that provides additional space to keep baby’s essentials right at your fingertips. It also features a new floor light to help you see without disturbing your baby or your partner! There are also new HALO Bassinest accessories – a mobile, storage caddy mattress pad and organic options. Perfect for those who like options – I’m thinking adding a mobile to our Bassinest would be so much fun for our little guy!
