If you have had a newborn, then you know how new mothers can get very sleep deprived. In an effort to get more sleep, they often resort to bringing their babies to bed despite so many warnings from doctors and safe sleep experts that bed sharing can be dangerous for the baby. In fact, a recent Safe Kids USA/American Baby survey found that 38% of moms do so regularly. Approximately half of all infant suffocation deaths happen in an adult bed, when compared with sleeping in a separate space, the overall infant death is more than 40 times higher for a co-sleeping baby. Mothers want their babies kept close, especially if they are breastfeeding, so what is a new mom to do? Introducing the new HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper….the perfect solution to this dilemma.
The HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper is a unique bassinet which allows baby to sleep as close as mom wants – closer than with any other bassinet, even right next to her in bed. The baby still sleeps safely in his/her own separate sleep area, which reduces the risks that are associated with bed-sharing. The dual-swivel of the bassinet allows it to rotate a full 360 degrees from two different pivot points. The first swivels elliptically, which allows the Bassinest to be pulled into the bed next to the mom. The second rotates circularly, which makes it easy for mom to angle it as needed. This makes it easier and more comfortable for mom to get in and out of bed. This is particularly important to the one-third of new moms who have C-section birth and have a longer and more painful recovery. The unique design also means baby is always close by and visible at mom’s eye level which gives mom peace of mind and allows her to reach in and soothe baby quickly. The mesh walls not only provide maximum visibility but also breathability. The swivel design and retractable walls allow mom to tend to many of her baby’s needs while still being in bed. This is not only convenient and comfortable, but also allows better and more restful sleep.
The Bassinest Swivel Sleeper can also help support nursing moms, particularly during the nighttime. This allows for easier nighttime feedings as baby can be easily lifted to the breast without getting out of bed. The Bassinest also comes with a unique nursing timer which will alert mom when it’s time to switch sides or return baby to his sleep space. Best thing about it, is that you can get the baby in and out of the Bassinest without ever leaving the bed. Other features of the Bassinest include a nightlight, soothing nature and womb sounds, music and gentle vibration. Watch this video on how amazing this Bassinest is:
The HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper has height adjustability to fit beds 24″-34″ high. It is designed for birth to 30 pounds (or 5 months of age). It meets or exceeds all CPSC and Health Canada guidelines and standards for bassinets. The fitted sheet is removable and machine washable. The new Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is JPMA-certified and was awarded the top JPMA Innovation Award for 2013. The Bassinest has a suggested retail price of $249.99.

I know how much of a struggle having a newborn is and with the upcoming birth of my 3rd child, I am so excited about the HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper. With our first baby, I admit I eventually folded under the pressure of no sleep and ended up co-sleeping. I regret it and not only did I put my baby at risk, but I also created horrible sleeping habits. So with our 2nd baby, I was determined not to co-sleep and we kept our bassinet in our room for the first few months. Unfortunately, I had a very rough labor and ended up having a very painful recovery. Every time my baby needed me, I had to get out of bed to get him and it was so painful getting in and out of bed. So I love how the Bassinest swivels right onto the bed so I don’t have to get out of bed. The HALO™ Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper is top on my wishlist for this baby. It’s safer for baby and easier for you.
Here are some tips to help ensure safe sleep for your baby:
- Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
- Room-share, but don’t bed share; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend against bed sharing as it can lead to an increased risk for accidental suffocation.
- Use a crib or bassinet that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
- Remove all soft bedding and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
- Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
- Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.NEVER
Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
