best sleepers

baby bassinet


rocking bassinets

These are the modern bassinets.
They come with features that can sooth most fussy babies.
They offer many features like: rocking, soothing sounds, lights ect. 

The Snoo is great for parents and healthy babies but I do not recommend using it with weak babies as the rocking is pretty strong on high intensity.


Bedside Co-sleeper Bassinets

There is nothing wrong with co-sleeping if that is what you prefer and you take extra precautions to keep your baby safe.

Co-sleeping, just like sleeping in separate beds and/or rooms have their own risks, difficulties and benefits.

Great alternatives to putting baby in your bed are the Bedside sleepers. They are much safer and they allow you to create that special bond that co-sleepers (babies and parents) love so much.

If you are co-sleeping with your baby this organic mattress will help you create a spot just for your baby for the first few months. After baby learns to roll he will be able to roll out of this sleeper.

Newborn baby's have a flexion contraction (you can read about it in the blog on head control). This bassinet helps the newborn to be pulled less by gravity by keeping them flexed.

The elevated back also helps baby to breathe easier. 

It is roomy, not like the car seat that babies love so much, so your can baby move and shift her body. 

I recommend this bassinet for newborns until 3-4 months of age for naps and for short naps there after. After 4 months sleeping flat is best for baby's development.

When you use this bassinet with a newborn the baby will slide and slump because there is no side support. To help baby lay straight roll receiving blankets and tuck the rolls in at the sides of your baby.

This bassinet is great for your baby if he is fussy laying on his back on a flat surface.

When I work with developmentally delayed babies I recommend this bassinet for babies who arch and/or are weak even past 4 months.

This is a swing has two options for your baby to rest. The traditional seated position as well a reclined position making it a swinging bassinet.

I recommend reclining your baby into a flat position after she is deep asleep.

The muscles relax when the baby is in deep sleep and she won't be holding her head up. Her head in an seated position will tilt to one side which will strain her neck. 

To avoid head tilting when the baby is asleep recline this swing into a bassinet position.

Hammock are favorites of baby's. It resembles the hugging feeling they had in the womb and still allows them move around.

Some baby's will prefer sleeping in a hammock style cribs until 2 years of age.

A trick I learned from moms from India is to tie a rope to the corner of the hammock. With this rope you can gently rock the baby from your bed without getting up. (In India dad's tie the rope to their big toe...)

I just like this.

How convenient it is to have a bassinet for parents who travel a lot as a back pack?

If your baby kicks of her blankets this sleeping bag is great for her to keep warm.

This sleeping bag is great for kids who are constantly moving, rolling in their sleep.

Kids can even walk around the house in them on a lazy morning.
 
IKEA also sells them but only in small sizes.
