Better than a Bassinet – Halo Bassinest + Safe Sleep Tips & #Giveaway

It’s been 9 weeks since baby Henry was born. I was sure I had everything, but lo and behold, there are a few things I discovered before he was born that I knew I would love to check out. One of these things was the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper. I have a bassinet that I have used through all 3 of the kids and love it. When I first heard about the Bassinest Swivel Sleeper though, I knew I wanted one. It’s a bassinet – only better!

Halo BassinestThe Bassinest Swivel Sleeper features a unique dual-swivel design. It is the only bassinet that moves with it’s flexible side and swivel design allowing mom to pull the bassinet to her, remove baby and feed him. It allows the baby to sleep as close as you want, even right in the bed, while keeping baby safe. The design of this bassinet makes it fantastic for any new mom, especially those who have just had a c-section.  The completely breathable sides will give you peace of mind as you look over and see your sweet newborn asleep and safe.  Check out this video to learn more:  

I am sure you have heard of Halo products before, especially the SleepSack Swaddles. I had a few laying around that we were given at the hospital when all of our babies were born, and a few more I received as gifts. Neither of my boys slept well without the swaddles, that feeling of being snuggled was just what they needed, so I was thrilled to receive another one in a bigger size as a thank you for telling you about this seriously amazing Bassinest Swivel Sleeper.

Some Safe Sleep tips from HALO


  • 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 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.
