I still remember when we had our first daughter 5 years ago and I knew NOTHING about taking care of a newborn. I knew I had everything she needed, like her own room with a crib, changing table, diapers, bath tub…you know the main baby items. Wasn’t until I came home from the hospital with her that I realized something. I could not just keep her in a crib across the hall from our room and wake up 5 times throughout the night to feed her and change her diaper. So we quickly went out in the middle of the night to pick up something I could put her in while still being close to me in our bedroom.
Three girls later, after trying a few co sleeping solutions here and there, we have finally found the perfect solution for room sharing with our baby. With the HALO Premiere Bassinest (affiliate link) our little Audrey is close enough to me while still being in a separate and safe sleeping area.
After giving birth, us Mama’s are pretty sore and some of us in even worst pain from having a c-section. I love that the HALO Premiere Bassinest can easily adjust to our bed height and has a retractable wall so I can easily get to our baby without struggling or straining my sore body from giving birth. And even though it’s right next to my bed, pretty sturdy and heavy, I can always turn the bassinest around anyway, 360 degrees. LOVE that I can comfortably get in and out of bed and bring our baby closer.
With the HALO Premiere Bassinest it comes with a nightlight, 3 lullabies, 3 nature and womb sounds, 2 levels of vibration and nursing timer with auto shut off. My favorite is the nightlight, I can turn it on low or high and could illuminate just enough where I can do a quick diaper change, nurse, and allow my husband to continue to sleep without having to turn my bright wall lamp on.
Take a quick look at my HALO Premiere Bassinest video review….
If you’re looking to room share with your baby, I would highly recommend the HALO Premiere Bassinest. Very easy to use, great for even small spaces seeing as though we have a small bedroom, and most importantly the ease and comfort of being able to get our baby without comprising pain from birth. I would also recommend the HALO Sleepsack Swaddle, this has helped our babies sleep long enough where their hand isn’t getting in the way and waking them up. Not only that but, it’s also easy for grandparents and dad’s to put on the baby…no guesswork.
