Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro The baby can sleep close to you
You can keep the baby as close to you as you need, but still safe in their own separate sleeping area. The Bassinest can be adjusted to make it lay on top of your bed, and its base can be tucked underneath. This is for co-sleeping without actually bed-sharing which can cause SIDS. Having your baby nearby helps provide peace of mind and therefore, a more restful sleep.
Pro Makes nighttime feedings easy
Newborns nurse 4x during their nighttime sleep, and the ability of the side wall to lower allows you to tend to them while still in bed. Halo also offers an add-on nursing timer that attaches to the bassinet. You can press it when you take your baby out and it plays a soft melody to wake you up after a set time, in case you've fallen asleep. The alarm reminds you to put your baby back to the bassinet. These features are ideal for nursing mothers.
Pro Best for recovering c-section mothers
The recovery after a c-section surgery is painful and moving around can intensify the pain. This bassinet's ability to rotate and swivel 360 degrees makes getting in and out of bed hassle-free. Also, the side wall closest to be bed can be pressed down, reducing the amount of discomfort of lifting your baby.
Pro Allows you to quickly check on your baby
The mesh walls give eye-level visibility, allowing you to see and soothe your baby quickly without getting up.
Con Difficult to move around the house
The bassinet weighs almost 50 pounds, and the weight is necessary to secure the bassinet when it swivels. However, it makes it hard to push around.
