5 Best Bassinets

  • Editor's Pick

    The Arm's Reach Mini Convertible Co-Sleeper is a multitasking co-sleeper that attaches securely to your bed, allowing easy access to your infant until she's 30 pounds while keeping her safe. (The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies sleep on their backs on a separate sleep surface from parents.) It's both portable and convertible, switching from a freestanding bassinet to a co-sleeper, and then a play yard for babies up to 50 pounds. Perfect for on-the-go families, it folds easily into an included travel bag and comes with a removable fabric liner, mattress and fitted sheet. ($190; amazon.com)

  • What a Steal!

    Graco's Modern Playard with Bassinet & Changer features a vibrating bassinet that soothes your little one with classical music and nature sounds. The LED nightlight aids late-night diaper changes on the attached changer, plus there's plenty of storage space for baby essentials. Like magic, it's also a play yard for naps or safe play through to toddlerhood. ($200; kohls.com)

  • What a Steal!

    The classic design of the Babymod Futura Cradle is great for babies up to 3 months old. Available in ebony, cherry, espresso and white, it's made of solid wood with a nontoxic finish and comes with a waterproof pad. We love the rocking feature, but you can also stabilize movement if baby prefers. Mobility is a breeze with the attached wheels that lock for safety. ($109-$120; walmart.com)

  • Worth the Splurge

    A (literally) rockin' bassinet, the Monte Ninna Nanna Bassinet touts a gently curved, solid wood base with a removable basket. A padded, machine-washable suede microfiber basket doubles as a portable moses basket. This stylish stunner comes with a waterproof mattress and two fitted sheets (one in stone and another in brown). When baby outgrows the bassinet at 18 pounds, you can use the basket to stow toys. ($395; giggle.com)

  • Worth the Splurge

    A multipurpose wonder, the Bloom Alma Urban Cot/Crib works for infants up to 24 months as a permanent sleep solution, bassinet or portable crib. Available in five chic colors (coconut white, gala green, cappuccino, frost gray and harvest orange) and offering two mattress heights to accommodate your growing baby, it folds effortlessly for storage and requires no tools for assembly. And it's easy on the planet: made from sustainable wood and finished in low-VOC paint. ($400; amazon.com)
