It looks like Ovum Baby is now selling the Ovum bentwood bassinet on etsy. Who knew? This makes is only slightly easier to order one of these interesting pieces. Only slightly easier, because it’s still $1800.
I’d really love to check one of these out in person. Some new photography would be lovely as well…
The Culla Belly Co-Sleeper has been a popular search on BuyModernBaby ever since I first posted about it in 2011. The transition from design to final product has been a challenge, and I had already given up on ever seeing these available until our newest advertiser, Elm Baby, contacted me and let me know that they now carry the Culla Belly Co-Sleeper in their online boutique. They have a personal relationship with the designers and distribute it directly from them.
Designed by Andrea Garuti and Manuela Busetti, one side of the bassinet unzips to open up onto the parents’ bed. The wooden base is secured under the mattress of the bed. The final design doesn’t have all the style of the initial concept, but this is frequently what happens in the transition from idea to reality.
The co-sleeper is available in seven colors: red, blue, green, orange, light blue, cream, and pink.
The Culla Belly retails for $600 and the stand is an additional $290.
I haven’t seen these in person, so I can’t tell you too much about them, but if you’ve been desperate for a more modern co-sleeper, this is what you’ve been waiting for. If you’ve gotten a look at a Culla Belly Co-Sleeper or if you own one, please comment and let us know your thoughts!
just for fun shopping guide: bassinet bedding crib bedding giveaway
While it seems that the pink and blue colors are no-brainers, the patterns are modern and super sophisticated. If you’re doing pink or blue, you can do it right with these new designs. Looking closely, you can see that there are many different shades and variations to the fabrics.
With the Rose Sea pattern, you even find a feminine mix of pink AND blue.

Unlike many other bloggers, I was never a fan of the Go Crib from Guava Family. The only time we’ve mentioned it on the blog is when it was a “Best Alternative To A Crib” 2012 Cribsie Award Finalist. The inflatable rails seemed unnecessarily bulky to me.
I was happy to find their newest travel cribs at ABC Kids Expo 2012 are very different. Coming soon, we have their Lotus Crib and Lotus Bassinet.
I don’t have availability dates or price info on these yet, but I’ll update the post when I find out! In the meantime, take a look at their video to get a better idea how these products work.
Tell me, did you like the Go Crib, or is the Lotus more your style?
Last year Babyhome was completely new to the US, so I wasn’t expecting too much excitement from them this year.
This limited edition Dream will retail for about $340.
The Dream will also be available in this new turquoise blue color as well as white. ($300)
The other notable addition to Babyhome’s collection is the new Side Light bed rail. The Side Light improves on Babyhome’s Side bed rail by adding a mild LED light on the upper bar. The Side Light will retail for $100, while the Side is $80.
I think we’re going to be needing one of these soon!
I can’t believe I haven’t revisited the Breeze playard from 4 moms since last September! You’ll have to forgive my lack of attention to this deserving product, but now is actually a great time to bring it up because the Breeze now available for pre-order! If you are currently expecting and can wait until October, you are going to want- no, NEED- one of these! The Breeze is the easiest playard ever. I’ve never recommended a pack-n-play because I had one and while I used it because it’s what I had, it was ugly, awkward and I never did get the hang of opening and closing the thing.
The Breeze is just another example of why I’m envious of all you who are having babies at this point in time! How much easier would their babyhood have been if I had a Breeze when my boys were born instead?!
It’s really just as simple as it looks. I’ve tried it myself. It comes with the bassinet insert (shown below) as well as a travel bag and portable changing pad all for $300.
If you want to be among the first to get your hands on this gift to parenthood, you’re going to have to order now. Their initial pre-order production is already sold out and is expected to shop in mid-October. Orders going forward are being filled on a first-come basis.
The Cradle by Kåre Frandsen is a gorgeous space age pod style cradle or bassinet.

Babyhome (who we visited at ABC Kids back in September) is now available in the US! You can currently find their Onfour Babysitter, Emotion Stroller, Side Bed Rail, Eat High Chair and Dream Bassinet at various retailers like our affiliates Magic Beans.
I really love the simple, straight-forward designs across their collection as well as the bright and modern color selection (black, brown, lime, navy, purple, sand and red). Giggle also carries an exclusive Gray version of the Dream Bassinet.
There are a couple of things that I really like about Tiny Love’s new 3 in 1 Rocker-Napper. First, you can’t really beat a baby lounger that converts to a bassinet. Stokke’s Bounce ‘n’ Sleep is an example of another way that this is being done, but at a different price point.
The 3 in 1 Rocker Napper has nice, neutral, modern look although some of the parts look a little plasticky. There are 3 reclining positions and the mattress can also lay flat for a proper nap position.
I’m thrilled to add a versatile product like this to our list of modern baby bouncers and loungers on buymodernbabyseats.
You can pre-order a 3 in 1 Rocker-Napper today from our amazon affiliate. It retails for $100 and ships at the end of April.
The Stokke Bounce ‘n’ Sleep is a bouncer and daybed set but to get the whole idea, check out the video.
This is a really beautifully designed and highly functional product. I’m going to call it the ultimate baby shower gift and I can’t wait to add this to our guides! The only problem is, do I put it on the bouncer list or the bassinet list?
This should be available in the US and Canada next month (November 2011) and I’ll update this post with the price when I know it.
