Halo Bassinest Review

This sucker is the hottest ticket going these days – I’m seeing it everywhere – so I thought I’d better have a boo at it myself.

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 (mmmm) and a nursing timer.

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

Things I Loved:

  • Can swivel over the bed
  • Your baby is right at eye level
  • Mesh sides for great air circulation
  • Nice neutral colour 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

You can find them here on rightstart.com for about $230 and on Amazon.


Also check out:

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 playyard 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.
