The Halo Swivel Sleeper Bassinest is a bassinet that can sit up right next to your bed and swivel over your bed for easy access to your baby. It also has a drop-down side, a light, music, good vibrations (oom bop bop) and a nursing timer.

Halo Bassinest Review

Have a peek at my lovely video to find out more:

Things I loved about the Halo Bassinest:

  • Can swivel over the bed
  • Your baby is right at eye level
  • Mesh sides for great air circulation
  • Nice neutral color and design
  • Drop down side
  • Maneuvers out of the way easily
  • Very sturdy and stable
  • Reasonably easy to put together

Things to Consider:

  • It’s a little pricey
  • You still have to lift the baby over the drop side so it’s not a seamless transition
  • It’s heavy (a good thing for stability) so you’re not going to be moving it a lot, although, they do have a Basinest Flex that is super light a portable now.

Halo Bassinest Comparisons:

Graco Pack N Play Playard with Bassinet: About $160 cheaper. Doesn’t have the swivel function or the do-dads, but extends its use by converting to a playard when your child is older.

Arm’s Reach Concepts Mini Arc Co-sleeper: Similar to the Pack N Play but this one can butt up right against your bed.

Summer Infant By Your Side Portable Bedding: This one is $60 bucks so there’s a big price difference. It sits on your bed instead of beside it so if you are sleeping in a double or even a queen, dad/mom/partner may get the boot.

Should you buy the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper?

I think it’s a great product. Especially if you think you’re going to be nervous with a newborn. (::raises hand::) It's a great way to keep your baby close to you without compromising on safety.

You can find the whole series of Halo Bassinests on their site.

Do you have a Bassinest?
