One of the most popular bassinets currently on the market. The reason being that it is a very safe solution and the only sleeper that rotates 360°. The feature ensures maximum convenience and safety.

The Premiere allows you to keep your child close but in their own safe space. This significantly decreases the risks that come with bed sharing and co-sleeping. There is also the swiveling feature that allows you to get in and out of bed without disturbing your child’s sleep.

The one-of-a-kind design allows you to keep your child at eye level, and the transparent mesh sidewalls ensure the baby will always know your there, and therefore feel calm. It also enables you to check upon your kiddo without having to get up.

The mesh sidewalls are entirely breathable, and the lowering side wall with auto-return mechanism makes this model perfect for mommies who had a C-section. The base is sturdy and is an excellent fit with a bed of almost any height. The halo bassinest premiere comes with a nursing timer, night light, music player and two vibration settings.

Features

360° Rotation

Without a doubt, one of the most prominent features of this model is its 360° rotation and swivel feature. It’s what makes this bassinet a perfect solution for mothers that have had a C-Section and are in recovery, or for any mother whose movement is limited.

The sleeper can swivel right over your sleeping area, so you don’t have to bend over to hoist your baby. It also comes in handy for mothers who are breastfeeding.

Mesh Sidewalls

One side of the sleeper can be unlocked and lowered down which allows parents to easily lift and care for their baby. It takes off the pressure of one’s abdomen and back when hoisting the infant. The mesh siding is also transparent which is a big relief as fresh parents tend to constantly check upon their newborn upon returning home from the hospital.

That way, you won’t have to get out of bed to make sure everything is OK. It also provides the child with an increased sense of security, as the baby can see that you are with them all the time. The mesh sidewalls also ensure breathability and neutralize the risk of chocking.

Storage

The bassinet comes with a storage pocket that is located at the very end of the sleeper. It is excellent for storing a couple of diapers, some wipes, or perhaps a midnight snack for yourself as well. It is very easy to access, so the user doesn’t have to fumble during the night to find their necessities.

Adjustable Height

The mechanism is similar to that of a bicycle seat. There is a knob on the shaft that allows the user to adjust the height of the bassinet. It is an excellent feature as it enables the parent to tailor fit the sleeper to their personal preference or mattress height. When the mother and the baby are at the same eye level, it really helps the bonding process.

Solid Sturdy Base

The HALO is famed for manufacturing exceptionally safe and sturdy bassinets. The case is no different with the Swivel Sleeper. It does add a bit to the weight, but the robust base won’t budge for anything.

It works great for families with large pets and other children who are obsessed with their new siblings, as all of them are prone to bumping into furniture. The base doesn’t have wheels, so it’s sturdy enough, but not really portable.

Smart Features

The Premiere is packed with a handful of smart features that will help your baby drift off to dreamland. It features a nightlight that will help you to tend to your child in the dark, but it is still dim enough not to disturb your precious one.

The model features a 2-speed vibration feature and a nursing timer. The device is capable of playing three different soothing sounds and three lullabies. Each function has a 30-minute auto shut off setting, so you can turn it on and forget about it.

Easy Assembly

There is not much to it, really. It comes with a base, legs, a pole, and the sleeper itself. However, since it is heavy, once you set it up you’ll probably want to leave it there, so pick a spot wisely.

Fitted Sheet and Mattress Pad

The fitted sheet that comes with the package is 100% polyester and to clean it, simply run it down with a damp cloth or throw it straight into the washing machine. The mattress is entirely waterproof. That really means a lot as babies love making a mess – it simply cannot be avoided.

What’s wrong with the product?

-Temporary Usability

This downside isn’t exclusive to the Premiere, but it must be highlighted simply because using a bassinet longer than it is intended poses a risk. As high-end bassinets are generally pricey, and can only be used for approximately for six months, you need to make sure the unit has all the features your family needs.

-Weight

The Premiere is quite heavy. Its bulkiness does have its advantages, but it is still more of a downside, especially considering that there are a lot of other models on the market that are portable. If you want to move the Swivel Sleeper to another room, you will indeed have to break a sweat.

Conclusion

If you are in need of an extra hand when your baby starts to cry randomly in the middle of the night, you won’t be making a mistake if you decide for the HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Premiere Series bassinet. Aside from the conveniences it offers, it is manufactured to satisfy the highest safety standards there are. It sacrificed its portability to make parenting much easier and enjoyable.
