What weabout it
The basic version of Halo’s swiveling, bedside bassinet allows your baby to sleep safely alongside you

About this Product
  • 360 swivel and adjustable stand lets you position your baby just right
  • Space-saving design with a base that tucks under the bed
  • Retractable wall lowers and returns to make tending to baby from bed, easy
  • Sides are made of sheer mesh for breathability and visibility
  • One storage pocket


With Halo’s bedside sleeper bassinet, your baby can be near you at night, but secure in their own defined space—it’s perfect for parents who want closeness but don’t feel comfortable co-sleeping. Use the 360 degree swivel to move the bassinet in next to you when you’re sleeping, then swivel it away so you can get out of bed more easily in the morning. The retractable, locking side wall lowers to make it convenient to tend to baby from bed (especially helpful for nighttime nursing or moms recovering from C-sections). A storage pocket helps keep necessities close at hand.

Unlike larger cribs that do not come with mattress, the Bassinest includes a mattress and coordinating fitted sheet. It’s probably worthwhile to get a couple extra sheets in case of nighttime accidents and consider a waterproof mattress pad too.

The base is heavy and extremely sturdy, yet it tucks under the bed, so the bassinet works well even in small spaces. Parents find that the base is too heavy to make the bassinet portable. Once you get it set up, it’s probably staying where it is. The good news: most find it’s too heavy to be accidentally tipped by a pet, a toddler, or even a grownup.

There are two other Bassinests in this line from Halo: the Premier which includes a built-in Soothing Center with lullabies and vibration, and the Luxe Plus which includes a floor flight, the Soothe Station and a caddy (check out the video below to see more).

I have chronic back pain, and this made it easy to lift baby in and out of the bassinet. It's large and heavy, so it's not easy to move, but it swivels out of the way easily and is adjustable to fit right up to the bed.

It works well for moms who are breastfeeding because you can hold the side down and feed your baby. Breastfeeding didn't work out for me and this bassinet is expensive; I definitely liked it though. The swivel feature is great, but it's very heavy.

As new parents we were looking for a safe sleeping option for bedroom sharing. We bought the Halo Bassinest. We don’t like it and our baby doesn’t like it. He never wanted to sleep in it. He always wakes up when put to sleep in it and cries if you try to leave him there. I think that the quarter inch thick “mattress” is the reason, it is awfully thin. Also the fabric of the sheet is like polyester (scratchy). The Bassinest doesn’t come with the newborn insert either, you have to buy one separately for about $50. I will be selling it and will search for a different one for our second baby.

A cheaper bassinet would get the same job done. For the price, it should feed my baby too 😝 I liked that it swiveled but the base was huge and heavy and I think a simpler bassinet would suffice.

Perfect way to have baby sleep close yet safe.

It’s really great for having baby close but not in bed with you. We transitioned our baby from sleeping in the bed, to the bassinet, to the crib pretty easily.

My daughter loves to sleep in it and it’s great to be able to have her close by for nighttime feedings.

The difficult part is storing it because it doesn’t break down into more than 2 parts and the legs are long and heavy- it’s a pain to put away in storage... I wish I would have known that early on so I would have saved the box.

Some people love this product, maybe we would have used it more if we had gotten the newborn canopy. Every baby is different and for our baby a dockatot worked best.
