Original post July 25, 2014: The Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is a great improvement to a classic bassinet. It allows you to practically co sleep with your child while she remains safely in her own sleep area. The bassinet base adjusts vertically to suit your needs, and the bassinet itself rotates 360 degrees. What does that mean practically? It means you can pull your baby closer to you while still laying in your bed. The walls of the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper are mesh for safety and breathability. The side wall can be compressed to allow you to easily reach your baby and then it returns back to position by itself.
I lucky that I haven had any c sections, but I imagine this bassinet would be a game changer for a mom post c section. I know that I exhausted when my babies (or visiting nieces and nephews!) wake up multiple times a night, and I love that with this bassinet, tending to a little one requires little more than reaching out.
What to watch: This bassinet is heavy duty, which also means it heavy. If your bedrooms are on the 4th floor like ours are, enlist some help in bringing that box up! It was a doozy. However, the weight contributes to the sturdiness of the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, and it isn really an issue since it meant to remain next to the parents bed.
The Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper hasn hit the market just yet, but it will be in stores in the next month or so. You can reserve yours today through several different retailers.
