Crib: HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper

Best Safety

Skip co-sleeping and keep baby right by your side with this bassinet that can come right up to and over the side of your bed. It also swivels a full 360 degrees and one side is retractable, allowing you to easily maneuver baby onto your bed without lifting her up. What we love:

  • It includes lullabies, vibrations, a nightlight and a nursing timer

Buy it: $250,

Crib: BabyHome So-Ro Twin Cradle

Most Contemporary

Designed by an occupational therapist, this simple crib is exceptionally built for two. What we love:

  • It rocks from front to back rather than side to side, mimicking the way you’d rock baby in your arms

Buy it: $419,

Crib: Bloom Alma Mini

Best Space-Server

Living in a city apartment? This compact crib folds up for convenient storage and can be wheeled from room to room. What we love:

  • 5-minute set-up time — you can’t beat that

Buy it: $340,

Sleep Accessory: Swanling Innovations Slumber Swaddle


Easy swaddling and safe swaddling go hand-in-hand with this product. It snaps in place with the Slumber Sleeper, keeping your newborn comfortably on her back and in the center of the crib. Worried she’ll be too warm? The bamboo fabric is lightweight and breathable.

Buy it: $29,

Sleep Accessory: Aden + Anais Classic Crib Sheets

Crib Sheets

While we love these sheets for their pretty patterns alone, the breathable, soft cotton muslin is what makes it a standout. The sheets, sold individually, even come pre-washed.

Buy it: $20,

Sleep Accessory: Colgate Nuzzle Snuze

Best Mattress

Colgate’s most advanced mattress yet, the Nuzzle Snuze is made out of recyclable fibers that help promote a good night’s sleep. This NaturesNest technology is also pretty good-looking; the mattress comes in three different patterns.

Buy it: $370,

Humidifier: Duux Mushroom Humidifier

Coolest Dual Function

It’s a humidifier, it’s a nightlight, it’s a mushroom…it’s perfect for the nursery because it’s just so cute. Its kid-friendly design is also big on function. Features we love:

  • It uses 80 percent less energy than other humidifiers and has an automatic shut-off

Buy it: $60,

Image: Crane

Humidifier: Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Drop Humidifier

Most Quiet

This isn’t a space saver, but it gets the job done and looks great doing it. What we love:

  • With a 24-hour run time, the Crane is dry air (and dry skin’s) worst nightmare
  • The fun shape and bright colors are perfect for the nursery
  • It’s ultra-quiet and turns off when the tank is empty

Buy it: $46,

Image: Vicks

Humidifier: Vicks Starry Night Humidifier

Most Soothing

It’s not quite Van Gogh, but we know your child will love the projected stars from this humidifier that can run up to 24 hours before needing a water refill. What we love:

  • Those stars change colors!
  • An integrated scent pad heater disperses congestion-clearing Vicks into the room, perfect for when you’re sick

Buy it: $55,
