It’s been 3 months since my third baby arrived and we have settled into our new lives gradually. It wasn’t (and still isn’t) easy each day, and I’m sure once school starts we will have to readjust our routines once more until we find our groove. All I can hope for is a peaceful night of sleep for all of us.
Having my baby sleep next to me gives me some peace of mind. He’s just an arms reach away in his Halo Bassinest. In his earliest days, I was recovering from my worst (out of 3) c-sections. I didn’t anticipate my recovery to take nearly twice as long as with my previous two babies, nor did I anticipate not being able to move as easily as I once did. Now, three months later, I still have difficulties moving in certain positions. The swivel feature of his Bassinest makes it easy to position his sleep area close to my bed. It takes less effort to get him out of the Bassinest since the side drops down when pressure is applied. Can you believe with my previous two c-sections I actually had to have my husband get out of bed, walk around to my side where the baby was sleeping, and hand the baby to me to nurse or soothe? With the Bassinest I felt more independent, relying less on my husband for help in the middle of the night, especially since he had to wake up early the next day for work.
To get my little one to sleep has been a bit trivial for our family, only because we weren’t use to a baby like him. Unlike my girls, this new little wonder doesn’t want to be held, rocked, swayed, or shushed to sleep. He simply wants his Bassinest and some light music and within minutes he drifts off into a restful sleep. The Halo Bassinest has soothing sounds built right in, and those work well for him when he is ready for his evening slumber. Other sounds aside from musical melodies include womb sounds and white noise, both of which he preferred when he was a newborn. There’s even a button to time your nursing sessions as well as a vibrating feature, and a light that enables you to check on baby in the middle of the night.
Wow, I can’t believe he isn’t considered a newborn anymore! My infant is quickly growing, but not quickly outgrowing his Bassinest. I can see us using it for a few more months, or until he is pulling himself up. The Halo Bassinest has a height adjustment so it can fit a good range of mattress heights. The Halo Bassinest is a favorite newborn must have of mine. You can find out more by visiting Halo Bassinest online. The Bassinest can be purchased at Buy Buy Baby, Amazon, Babies R Us, and other baby retailers.
