Thanks to HALO for sending us the newest addition to their family, the Rose Leaf Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, Newborn Cuddle Insert and HALO SleepSack Swaddle. HALO has made the newest addition to our family (and Mom!) extremely happy and we’re delighted to give our review.

First off we’ve been using the HALO SleepSack Swaddle from day-one, including  in the hospital. We brought our HALO Swaddle with us to the hospital to use, and the nurses gave us non-stop compliments about how cool it was. I even gave the nurses a little demo! It makes swaddling a breeze and the baby just loves how warm and snuggly it is. It’s a favorite of mine because it can be worn 3-ways, and we can always find the most comfortable fit for her mood.

We haven’t had a baby in quite a while, and I was a little anxious about where she was going to sleep. I wanted her nearby but not in the bed, which can be an unsafe place for baby. When I saw the HALO Bassinest, I instantly fell in love with the idea that she could be literally right next to mommy in bed while still in her own separate, safe sleep space. That’s the part no one tells you, the peace of mind the Bassinest can  bring. That feeling new parents experience with their day-old babies never goes away- no matter how many children you have. We do our best to keep them safe. I felt this uneasy tension leave my body the first night she slept so close to me in the Bassinest. I felt like I could finally exhale and get some rest while she slept because I knew she was close, safe and happy. I could hear her taking the tiniest of breaths through that little button nose and I could finally exhale. Exhale and meet Mr. Sandman.

The HALO Bassinest has an awesome battery-operated soothing center. It has six different lullabies and soothing sounds, a nursing timer and even a nightlight that shines right on her, so I could do every new Mom’s favorite past time -watch baby sleep. The best part of the soothing center was the vibration. My baby loves it and the vibration instantly relaxes her when she’s getting a little worked up before feedings.

We also tried the new HALO Bassinest Cuddle Insert. It simply clips onto the Bassinest and creates a soothing, gentle cuddle around her body. It provides a firm, flat sleep surface and is made of breathable mesh fabric. My son told me that he read that babies often cry from loneliness, and he could see the need to create a Cuddle Insert so Mommy could get a break here and there. I agree. When your baby is fed and changed there’s no where else they’d rather be then in someone’s arms, well, with the HALO Basssinest and Cuddle Insert there are now two places they’d like to be.

The storage on the Bassinest makes it so you truly don’t have to get up for simple things like diapers and wipes. I keep her must-have essentials close by and since I breastfeed, there is no need to be in and out of bed all night. We all know there is no handbook on babies but if there was I have to imagine the HALO Bassinest is in there!
