American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your baby sleep in your room for 6-12 months to help prevent SIDS. Now there are a lot of options for bassinets and mini cribs to go next to your bed. But after using other bassinets I was thrilled to get the Halo Bassinest as a gift from family. For the first 6 months, the Halo Bassinest does a great job. It can sit at your mattress height so you can see baby. It swivels to come closer to the bed and has a one side that moves down slightly making it easier to get baby in and out for night time feedings; it has night light and it gently vibrates.
