Best Baby Bassinets
While bassinets are not a must-have item for babyhood, I do think they have their place and can often make the first months of infancy easier on parents and baby. They can increase the opportunity for bonding and sleep while potentially decreasing the risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) by keeping the baby in the same room with you at night. Bringing home your baby is one of the most exciting experiences you can have as a parent. But it can also be one of the scariest. Newborn babies will sleep for an average of 16 hours per day, usually about ten at night and six during the day. A great bassinet will make sure your baby is comfortable, nearby, and safe for all of those sleepy hours! The bassinet is an essential addition to any baby gear, and it makes an excellent gift for new moms or a baby shower. You’ll realize that in the first year of baby’s life, a lot of time is spent focusing on getting baby to sleep through the night, nap frequently during the day, and spend less time fussing. A comfortable and versatile bassinet can make the difference between a fussy sleeper and a quiet and happy baby that gets all the restorative sleep she needs. Here are five bassinets we have carefully selected as our top picks.
