Many new parents want to keep their newborn baby close to them during the night, and bassinets are the best option for keeping your little one nearby for those night feeds and diaper changes.
So if you are preparing for the arrival of your little bundle of joy, here are six bassinet options to consider:
Halo Innovations Bassinet Swivel Sleeper: This bassinet rotates 360 degrees and has a side wall that lowers, making it easy to bring closer to the bed and tend to your baby. Features a nursing timer, soothing sounds, lullabies, volume control, gentle vibration and auto shut-off.
Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Bassinet: This portable sleeper rocks gently with a push from mom or dad or can lock to be stationary. Folds up easily to move from room to room or take on-the-go.
Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper: Allows you to easily co-sleep with your baby. Design with a sturdy metal frame to prevent rolling over on top of your child. Also has mesh siding for air circulation.
Swaddle Me Close Bedside Bassinet: Has a height adjustable frame that allows you to pull the bassinet right beside the bed. Features side-to-side rocking, gentle vibration, soothing sounds and lullabies. Sides are made of mesh to provide breathability and a clear view of baby.
BabyBjorn Cradle: Easily rocks with a gentle push of a hand or with baby’s natural movement. Features removable waterproof mattress cover and cradle fabric that are machine washable. The mesh sides provide ventilation and for parents to easily monitor baby. The lightweight design makes it easy to carry from room to room.
Fisher-Price Soothing Bassinet: Your baby’s natural movement makes the bassinet sway gently. Features two modes of lighting — a star projector or a nightlight — and the unit is removable. Plays soothing music and sounds, as well as gently vibrates.
The most important thing is to find a bassinet that suits your needs and hopefully provides a good night’s sleep for parents and baby.
