As a new Mom, my biggest concern and priority is that Charlotte is safe when she’s sleeping. With this, the number one item that I wanted to have at home when she arrived is the HALO Bassinest! The HALO Bassinest has been a game changer for us, and today I wanted to share three safe sleep practices to keep in mind for babies:
1. No loose clothing.
It’s best to not place a baby in loose clothing in the Bassinest (or in the crib once we make the transition), so we dress Charlotte in the HALO SleepSack Swaddle. She’s snug and cozy which she really loves, and I really like that it’s easy to wrap her in when it’s time for bed. Not to mention the one pictured here is so cute with the butterflies!
2. Back is best.
Once Charlotte is dressed for bedtime, we place her in the HALO Bassinest Glide next to our bed laying her on her back. With the HALO Bassinest Glide we are able to raise it to the same height as our bed, and the key feature is that it’s able to glide across any floor surface so that we can bring her close to our bed and easily tend to her in the middle of the night (you can see it in action here). With having a C-section, the other feature that I really like is the lowering side wall which lowers with the pressure of your forearm, which makes it easy for me to lift Charlotte out of the Bassinest when it’s time to feed her. It also has mesh walls which provides maximum breathability, and it gives me peace of mind because I’m able to keep her at eye level throughout the night. The HALO Bassinest Glide has been perfect for our family as we adjust to newborn life!
3. No bumpers, blankets, toys, etc.
In the Bassinest (and eventually in the crib once we transition) we only have a fitted sheet. We avoid having items in the Bassinest and the crib such as bumpers, blankets, and toys in order to keep her safe and sound.
I received these products from HALO, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
