Best Features

  • Large, stable legs that easily tuck under the bed

  • Mesh sides to make it safe for the baby and so you can see in.
  • The front wall can be lowered to make it easier to lift out, or it can be locked in place.
  • The base rotates a full 360 degrees, so you can move it closer or out of the way.
  • Includes a nightlite button, and a nursing timer.
  • Includes a sound machine with 3 sooothing sounds and 3 soft lullabies.
  • Can also be set to vibrate at low or high speed.

Potential Issues

  • The stand is very heavy, and this is not meant to be a portable unit.
  • The legs do stick out from the bassinet and are quite large. If you have two tucked under the bed, the other two still stick out and can be a tripping hazzard.
  • 3 AAA batteries are required for the built-in soothing station and are not included.


The HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Bassinet is a very sturdy and useful bassinet that can be pulled up right beside your bed or couch, and easily rotates closer and out of the way. Its sturdiness and extra features like nightlight, vibration, and sounds make it an excellent value.
