One of the most difficult things about a newborn’s first weeks and months at home is the sleep situation. They sleep when you’re awake and are wide awake when you want to sleep. There are many options for how you want to manage their sleeping situation, but a bassinet is one of the most beautiful and elegant.
For this installment of our baby registry series sponsored by Babylist, I’ve rounded up my top 10 modern bassinets and cradles to help your baby sleep though the first few months in style and comfort.
1- Dream from Babyhome– $350
This lightweight travel crib is stylish enough to use at home. Adjustable legs allow for the crib to rock or remain stationary. Mattress, pad and sheet as well as a travel bag are included.
2- Gentle Motions Bassinet from Cariboo– $420
In addition to Cariboo’s two other bassinet models, this rocking version is a simple cotton bed that hangs on a wood frame. The bassinet includes a mattress, and optional accessories like a canopy, changer and activity gym are available.
3- Ninna – Nanna Bassinet from Monte– $395
Monte’s Ninna – Nanna bassinet is one of the most beautiful bassinet designs. This looks at home in the nursery, in your bedroom or the most beautifully decorated living room. The basket is removable and can be used as a portable bed.
4- Nest Bassinet from Offi– $1000
The Nest Bassinet is an absolute beauty. You’ll never want your little one to grow out of their Nest, but when they do, the optional conversion kit transforms it into a play table and toy bin. It comes with a mattress, slip cover and 2 fitted sheets.
