Best of Baby Winner for Best Bassinet
Sleep is precious—for baby and you. But getting ample rest during those first few days, weeks and months can be a feat for the bleary-eyed new parent. Set yourself up for success with gear that gives you peace of mind and peaceful slumber (fingers crossed). The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends room sharing with baby (same room, separate beds!) for a minimum of six months. While you could put your newbie’s full-size crib next to your bed from the get go, you’re probably better off starting with a sleep space that boasts a smaller footprint and more maneuverability—so that baby is at arm’s reach during those 3 a.m. sob fests. The new and improved Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is the only bassinet that swivels 360 degrees above your bed for middle-of-the-night convenience, while a built-in lowering wall provides easy and instant access. Better yet, the 2-in-1 system transforms from a bedside sleeper into a portable nest; simply detach the top lounger, and baby can nap or hang out anytime, anywhere—like in the bathroom while you shower.
