New babies wake frequently in the night for feedings, and many new mothers prefer to keep their little ones nearby for convenience. However, with known co-sleeping dangers, room sharing is often a safer option. The HALO Bassinest allows babies to have their own space, but really be right next to mom.
This bassinet swivels 360 degrees so moms can bring their babies close to them (which is especially nice for mothers recovering from c-sections). The sides of the bassinet are made of breathable, mesh allowing mothers to quickly see their baby, and it features a side wall that lowers and returns on its own, making it very easy to pick up baby in the middle of the night for feedings. This bassinet is recommended for babies up to 5 months or 20 pounds.
Coupled with the HALO Sleepsack Swaddle, which has become a staple in promoting “back is best” safe sleep habits for babies, this is a great way to help both mom and baby get much needed rest. Sleepsacks are wearable blankets that replace traditional blankets in the crib, in accordance with guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The swaddle version includes Velcro-fitted “wings” that help swaddle a baby quickly and precisely.
Both of these sleep-saving products are available locally at Stork Landing in Logan.
