Halo's new BassiNest - Youtube Video
Brixy posted this video of Halo's new awesome product, the BassiNest. It's a great new type of co-sleeper that swivels a full 360 degrees so parents can get in and out of bed more easily (great for c-sections). The height adjustment works well for different bed sizes and a baby up to 30lbs can sleep safely in the BassiNest. Safety is a big issues with this product, as with all Halo products. The sides are all mesh for easily ventilation and the BassiNest actually sits over the bed and has an easy folding side wall for access to the baby.
One of the best features though is the little soothing center that has a nursing timer, night light and soothing sounds for baby. This product will be available in January of 2014.
