The safest place for your newborn to sleep: in the room with you, but not in bed with you. Solution? One of these bassinets.
Many babies sleep more soundly when positioned slightly upright, especially if reflux is an issue. The incline of SwaddleMe By Your Bed Sleeper adjusts, and the bassinet vibrates and plays soothing sounds. The padding is machine washable. $100.
Dr. Harvey Karp’s Snoo Smart Sleeper automatically starts making calming motions and white noise when your infant cries. Our beauty director, Kate Sandoval Box, is a convert. “From almost Day 1, if I put my baby in the Snoo once she started dozing, she’d stay asleep,” she says. “I had to wake her to nurse!” $1,160.
This one has a long life! The Pack ’n Play Quick Connect With Portable Bouncer Playard works as your bassinet, diaperchanging station, and future safe-play space, with a removable bouncer seat to boot. $200.
Fold the LullaGo Portable Bassinet for easy travel, whether that’s spending a day with Grandma or hosting naptime in the living room. $100.
A bargain! The FoldAway Rocking Bassinet is also portable and is nice and low so you can peek in on your babe. $80.
