HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet Review

Are you recovering from a cesarean section? Or are you just a nursing mother, looking to tend to her new baby without having to leave the comfort of your bed?

Whether you’re just tired or still recuperating, the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet is the perfect choice for taking care of your little one without getting out of bed. Because of its handy swivel, its ability to be pressed up against nearly every bed, and its wide variety of soothing sounds, this is a perfect choice for new parents looking to purchase a bassinet for their little bundle of joy.

Features

Just as the name suggests, the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet’s most obvious and desired feature is its swivel. This is something that few other bassinets on the market today come with. Most bassinets that do come with this, however, normally don’t have the same range that this one does.

The HALO can swivel a full 360 degrees, in either direction, for the most adjustable option when it comes to positioning the bassinet. For those looking to take care of their baby from their bed, this is a perk that you can’t afford to pass up!

Whether you’re still recovering from the birth of your child, or have to take it easy because of a c-section, this makes it easier to stay off of your feet while still caring for your baby. This also works for mothers that are bedridden for other reasons, including paraplegics and those who are just down with flu.

Another perk of the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet is the wide variety of options it has to soothe your baby. For a bit of musical comfort, it offers three different lullabies to choose between. There are also three nature sounds that will help you to soothe a fussy baby.

For a more tactile sensation to help calm your infant, you can treat him or her to one of the two vibrate settings; this can keep babies calm and help them drift off to sleep.

And, of course, you can’t forget the waterproof mattress! This makes diaper blowouts, spit up, and drool nothing to worry about. You also don’t have to worry with buying mattress covers or waterproof sheets, which will save you money in the long run. And not having to wash all of those bed linens will help you keep yourself sane in the hectic early days of your baby’s life.

Pros

Summary

For new parents looking for the perfect bassinet for themselves and their babies, you can’t go wrong if you choose the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet. This is especially true if you’ve had a surgical birth, are still recuperating from a natural birth, or are stuck in your bed for another reason. You’ll enjoy the swivel function, whether you require it for a medical reason or if you’re just too tired to get out of bed!

The 360 degree adjustments that it offers make it a very convenient option; you can move your baby all around; you can move baby towards you for a nursing session, or away from you, so that you can climb out of bed without waking him or her. That makes it a great choice for any parent, no matter their circumstances.

There are also a lot of different options that the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet has to help you soothe your baby to sleep. If a lullaby is what your baby needs to make it to dream land, then look no further! This bassinet comes with three of them. For a more calming, natural option, simply choose between the three nature sounds that the HALO has.

If your baby feels better with a more tangible solution to his or her fussiness, then the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet has an option for that, as well. There are two different levels of vibration that you can choose from.

Lastly, but certainly not least, is the convenience of the waterproof mattress that comes with the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet. This means that you won’t have to worry about ruining your mattress, and you also won’t have to purchase and wash waterproof sheets for your bassinet. All around, the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet is a very convenient option.

  1. My wife got this when our son was born 8 months ago and she absolutely loves it!

    It is a great product….She particularly liked the fact that it swiveled so easily, and also the side pulls down so that you can easily get the baby out. The mesh siding gave my wife peace of mind too, since she could see the baby at all times

    I’ve been through so many bassinets with my children and most have been less than convenient. I wish I would have heard of this one sooner! I love how you have broken down the features – they sound amazing. I also love the idea of having the baby right next to you but in his/her own safe area. I will definitely look into this for my next child. Do you happen to have pictures or know of the best place to buy? Thank you so much for this great review!

    That looks like an ideal bassinet. After giving birth it was always so hard to get out of bed in the middle of the night to get my baby. This looks like an ideal solution for that. I have one question though- until what age is it recommended for? It does look smaller than other bassinets I’ve used?

     
    • Baby Bassinet says:

      Hi Hollie,

      This is a great bassinet for new moms. In regards to what age to use it until will all depend on your baby. Some things to consider are, is their a weight restriction? How big is your baby? Can he roll over? And, does your little one look cramped or uncomfortable.

      There are a few factors but the best place to start is what the bassinet recommends. Hope that helps 🙂

    I know that there will come a time when I want to settle down and be a Father to children. I feel that this will come in handy for when the missus says to me it’s my turn to check on the kid, the mattress could be thin but some padding should sort that out. ^.^

     
    • Baby Bassinet says:

      Its wonderful to be a father! Yes the mattress is thinner, however most bassinets have a thinner style mattress.

       
  5. Omg, I bought this after recovering from a rather brutal cesarean with my son and it was amazing. The only thing was the vibration feature stopped working after a few weeks. I am sure it was easily fixable but I just moved on to the other calming features. It is true the mattress is thin, but it seemed to bother me more than my son. Great buy!

     
    • Baby Bassinet says:

      Wonderful to hear a customer review!

      I agree that the mattress is thin, however I would base it on how your newborn is sleeping as you did. It is too bad about the vibration feature, I would hope that you would have support form the company if you chose to ask them to replace it. Thanks for the review!

       
  6. Overall I found your site construct is very nice and the layout very presented.

    Of course the contents you provided also awesome such as Features and pros/cons as well as information about the products.

    I will definitely bookmark your site and share to my networks especially my wife.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you

     
  7. Wow wish I had this when I had my new born! As a first time parent there was a lot of anxiety throughout the night as to whether baby was still breathing or not, and if we had this it would have been great because she would have been so close to me. I would highly recommend this to any anxious parents out there who don’t want to share the bed with new born for safety reasons, but want to be as close to their baby as possible. If I have another, I think I will get this! Thanks.

     
    • Baby Bassinet says:

      I absolutely agree with you liz, this bassinet is so helpful for new parents, and parents that want to be right beside their new born. Thanks for the comment!

       
  8. This is a wonderfully ingenious product! I can remember many times during my first birth when it was all I could do to get out of bed and feed my newborn. But, no matter how bad I felt, I knew there was no one else but me who could feed him.

    The bassinet I had was a standard one with no options. But, this HALO swivel sleeper bassinet would have made my recovery so much quicker and easier!

    Thanks, for the article and the information about this wonderful product!

      This bassinet is wonderful for women who need recovery time. It is very difficult for women to move around a lot after delivery. This is actually one of my favorite bassinets! Thanks for the comment.
