As we look forward to the start of a new year, with new mums and new babies on the horizon, along comes a wealth of new baby products hitting the market. Here’s a rundown of our best baby buys for 2016 that are sure to make the lives of mothers a whole lot easier!
The Halo Bassinet Swivel Sleeper
The Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper is a safe alternative to bed sharing and allows you to sleep close to your baby while having them safely in their own separate space. The four-point, tip-proof base provides height adjustability to fit any bed, while the 360° swivel design makes it easy to get in and out of the bed.
The retractable side wall makes lifting baby from an in-bed position easier, and has an auto-safety return. The sides are made from stain-resistant 100% polyester material that easily wipe clean with a damp cloth, while the removable fitted sheet is machine washable.
The BassiNest comes with a nursing timer which alerts when it’s time to switch sides or return baby to their sleep space – promoting easier night-time nursing. This is the ideal purchase for new mums who had a C-section birth and have a longer and more painful recovery. Other features include a nightlight, nature and womb sounds, music and gentle vibration.
