Twin moms, brace yourselves, because night-times are about to get a whole lot easier…
HALO, the company that created the Bassinest Swivel Sleeper, is introducing a brand new bedside sleeper specifically for twins, and it sounds amazing.
It’s filling a vital need for parents who wish to have both babies as close to them as possible, while allowing each of them their own personal sleep space. This is something I know I would have cherished as a new mom with twins.
I’m pretty confident that the new HALO Bassinest twin sleeper will be a game-changer. Here are 7 reasons I really wish it existed when I was a new twin mom:
1. Your babies will be closer to you.
Arguably the most exciting feature of the HALO Bassinest twin sleeper is the rotation. The HALO Bassinest sleeper can rotate 360-degrees, which will give you easy access to both newborns, without requiring you to jump in and out of bed. I vividly remember the struggle of waking up in the middle of the night and having to climb out of bed to calm both little ones, so this truly sounds like a dream!
2. Its design will save you heaps of room.
The HALO Bassinest twin sleeper will free up so much bedroom space, since you’ll no longer have a need for two separate cribs or bassinets! Plus, the base is adjustable to most bed heights, so you can be eye-level with your little ones, and just a fingertip away from both of them. These early moments are so precious, and this sleeper will allow you to enjoy every second with them, both safely and comfortably.
3. Your babies can sleep better, together.
The HALO Bassinest features mesh walls that will not only make it easier for you to see your little ones, but also provide them with the togetherness that they experienced in the womb. I love the idea that they’ll be able to see and comfort each other throughout the night; all while remaining in their own sleep space! The mesh walls also provide maximum breathability, which would definitely have given me peace of mind so we could all easily doze off together.
4. Nursing your babies from bed will be easier than ever.
The HALO Bassinest twin sleeper has side walls that can be lowered with the pressure of your forearm, which will make it incredibly easy for you to lift your babies from the comfort of your own bed. And for anyone like me who’s a bit of a worrier, the sides can be locked in an upright position for extra safety.
I think my favourite aspect of the HALO Bassinest twin sleeper is the fact that it was clearly designed with a mom’s recovery in mind; it’s SO convenient for moms who have had c-sections, as the reduced movement allows for a better and faster recovery.
Many twin sleep options require two separate bassinets or cribs, which not only occupy more space in the bedroom, but also mean many of us have had to crawl out of bed for night-time feedings. The HALO Bassinest allows you to calm your babies from the comfort of your own bed, which will make middle-of-the-night feeds incredibly more manageable.
6. Soothing is made simple.
The HALO Bassinest has a ‘Soothing Center’ panel, which includes a nightlight and an adorable choice of music, including lullabies, nature and womb sounds, and different levels of vibrations to assist in sending them off to sleep.
There’s also a back-to-bed reminder that gently alerts you when it’s time to stop nursing and return your babies to the bassinet. I have countless memories of fighting SO hard to not doze off during the night, so I definitely would have adored this feature.
7. Your babies’ essentials will be kept close at hand.
Aside from being extremely cute and stylish, the HALO Bassinest twin sleeper is actually very functional – it comes with two sheets and mattress pads, and also includes two side pockets to neatly store away your babies’ night-time essentials. The Bassinest twin sleeper comes in a ‘Sand Circles’ design: a simple, neutral fabric that works perfectly for both little boys and girls, and will also totally fit in with any decor.
As a new twin mom, I would have welcomed the HALO Bassinest twin sleeper into my home with open arms!
The new HALO Bassinest twin sleeper is in stores early 2018 and will sell for $449.99.
