I was introduced to the HALO brand recently after giving birth to my daughter this past January; I had to have another emergency c-section.  Since my son and daughter are close in age (3 years apart) I stubbornly refused to purchase a bassinet or anything else because a lot of the big ticket items we already had were still in great condition. However, I learned the hard way. Eventually, we had to purchase a co-sleeper.

After much research, we chose to purchase the HALO Bassinest Swivel sleeper Premiere model (retails for $249.99.) After using it the first night, I wondered why I tortured myself for the first month.

The HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper (Premiere model) features:

  • 360-degree swivel
  • Retractable side wall with lock
  • 2 Generous storage pockets
  • Soothing Center: 3 Lullabies, 3 Soothing Sounds, 2 levels of vibration, nightlight and nursing timer
  • Ideal for mothers recovering from a C-Section
  • Wall lowers with a gentle touch and returns to an upright position for safety.
  • Wall can be locked in the upright position if desired

Uniquely designed for the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, the new insert gently cradles baby to provide a snug cuddle for a better night’s sleep. Pair this with one of our many new HALO® SleepSack® Swaddles for safe, comfortable sleep for mom and baby. It is the only three-way swaddle on the market.

Aria loves her HALO Bassinet Swivel sleeper Premiere. Since she’s still in the newborn phase we use the bassinet with the HALO Newborn Cuddle Insert. The insert is breathable mesh and makes her feel snuggly; it makes her cat naps comfortable. In addition, we keep her snug and warm with her HALO SleepSack Swaddle. Although she doesn’t love to be fully swaddled anymore, I have the option to leave her arms out. The swaddle is easy to use, lightweight with soft material.

The Newborn Cuddle Insert retails for $49.99 and is available at, at most target stores and Amazon. The HALO Sleepsack wearable blanket (and Swaddles ) are widely available at Target,, and many other retailers.

    I swore by the swaddle technique with both of my girls. Today, I wrap myself in a cocoon with my blankets in order to fall asleep. That is such a comfortable position to fall asleep in!

  • When my twins were babies, we used HALO. They make really cute and safe sleepers. BTW your baby is beautiful.

  • Aw, look at your precious bundle! They didn’t make anything like this when my kids were little. Would have made things a little better if they had.

    They didn’t have these things when my kids were babies. This is so cute and I would definitely get some but no more babies here.

  • BABY CUTENESS! >sigh< Her little cheeks are giving me fever! We had a earlier version of a sleepsack that we used with my children who are now 17, 9, and 7 year old twins. I can't believe that they really don't have this for adults because I know plenty who still have startle reflex and it would be soothing. Plus, being able to lounge on the couch like this with both arms out, but still warm?!

    I do think that this should be on every parent's registry.

  • That’s Chelsea

    This is so precious! My friend recently had a baby. I’m going to share this with her.

    This is my first time visiting your site. I read your bio and it sounds so much like me. “There’s not enough hours in the day to do it all, but I try.”

  • Shoot! They need to make an adult version of this lol. That baby looks so peaceful and comfortable. I need that in my life.

    • She was and then she broke free. But she loves it when her arms are out as well.
