2. BabyBjorn Gentle Rocking Cradle – Best Seller #2
This is a great looking bassinet that’s like a sleek new piece of furniture for your home. It doesn’t operate like a co-sleeper (like the Halo or Arm’s Reach), and it doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles like music, vibrations, motorized rocking, or anything fancy like that. Instead, BabyBjorn made something a bit more natural.
It has a lightweight suspension system that rocks itself in response to your baby’s motion (and you can rock it too!).
It has great mesh breathable sides, is lightweight, and uses only safe and tested materials. In our tests, we found that the height is nice and low and it fits snugly right up to the side of a normal-height adult bed, with the legs sliding right underneath without any issues.
The mattress is also very comfy and supportive, and we like how the surround is made of fabric only so there are no bars or anything to bump up against. And the breathable mesh lets you see through to easily see your baby.
So what are the negatives? Well, we think it is a bit basic to be selling for nearly $300. And we like BabyBjorn’s dedication to using safe materials, but the board that supports the mattress is made of MDF (just like most others), and the mattress is made of polyurethane. So some believe their safety claims are a bit exaggerated.
That being said, this is a beautiful, safe, lightweight, comfortable, but very expensive bassinet! Goes for usually just under $300. Looking for something a bit less pricey? Check out #3 for a great alternative.
