Rhett is now eight whole weeks and I had hoped to have his sleep routine down pat. But with this sweet babe, I’ve really been trying to enjoy every single moment. Even if that means not making schedules and routines. He’s been more fussy than the other kids and has had a lot more set backs. For his naps, he sleeps in his Halo Bassinest.
Right now, I allow him to eat whenever he pleases, which is usually every 1.5-2 hours and then at night he typically wakes twice to eat.
Something I love about the Halo is it has controls on it which allow you to play music, vibrate the Bassinest and it also has a nursing timer which is pretty nifty.
They made the base ultra sleek and minimalistic so the Bassinest can easily get snug up to the bed, which is so perfect for co-sleepers! It also has a swivel feature so you can easily move it if needed.
Something else I love about the Bassinest is that it has mesh sides so I can see him regardless of where I have his Bassinest in the room.
While we’ve been working on getting into the groove with this little guy we’ve really been trying out different methods. So I’m all ears if you’ve had success with a great method!
Right now I’m totally soaking up the baby snuggles because this is our last baby. Which really pains me to say. I just love babies so much. I do find the newborn stage very trying but it will soon be over and then I will long to have it back again.
If wanting to purchase this awesome Bassinest, It would be a great addition to a room with little space as you can push it up against the bed. I’ve linked the Bassinest to a great retailer here in Canada. If you are from the US, please click on this link to purchase the Halo.
If I was to critique anything about this Bassinest, I would say the one feature I do not like, is that I wish you could have the side lock down to make co-sleeping even better. Since the side doesn’t lock down, you have to fully sit up in bed to take the baby out of it. But again, this isn’t a big deal for mothers who are used to getting out of bed anyways.
I hope you enjoyed this review of the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper and it helps you make the best informed choice on picking out a bassinet for your new bundle!
