The swaddleme by your bed sleeper is sort of a bedside hammock if you will. Its design certainly stands out among other models on the market, and that’s definitely in a good way. The mesh design hangs low so that it enables the sleeper to emulate the movement that of a baby in a womb, which is especially soothing for the child.

It wouldn’t be a smart bassinet if it weren’t for the impressive features it comes with. It is equipped with a beautiful soft glow night light, 2-speed vibration function, and can play nature sounds and lullabies to help your child fall asleep easier. You can lull your child to sleep without having to leave the bed.

However, you don’t have to rely on the vibration feature. You can rock the bassinet of your own if you want – it is great for bonding.

You can also adjust the height of the sleeper according to your preferences or your mattress height. The model really comes with enhanced comfort and safety.

The SwaddleMe allows you to bond and interact with your baby easily as you can monitor, calm, change and nurse the baby without much effort. Loose blankets won’t be causing you any problems as the bassinet comes with a fitted sheet and a mattress pad. It is easy to fold as well so you can move it from one room to other numerous times a day.

Features

Easy of Assembly

Everything you need to assemble the product comes in the package. Which means you won’t have to be in pursuit of screws, nor to figure out what goes where. As far as bassinet assembly goes, this one might be the best as the whole process takes just a couple of minutes.

Adjustable Height

This feature allows you to keep your kiddo right by your side while they are safely resting in their own personal area. You mattress height won’t be causing you any issues as you can easily set up the bassinet to match it. The sleeper has a two-position adjustable incline (10° and 30° degrees) that safely elevates the infant’s head.

The purpose of the feature is not only to make your baby’s sleep more comfortable but to allow for better digestion and easier breathing. The feature is entirely safe and in fact, it reduces the risk of acid reflux. The lowering function will help your baby gradually transition into a crib.

Smart features

A really lovely and unique addition than probably no other bassinet can boast of. It has a side to side rocking mechanism that allows you to calm your child without you having to get out of bed at all. The bassinet is equipped with a two-speed vibration system that does most of the work for the parent.

But what you baby might like more are the lullabies and nature sounds the bassinet emits. All you have to do is put the batteries inside. There is also a soft-glow light that isn’t invasive, so it won’t disturb your little one while you are making your way around the bedroom.

Portability

The sleeper is as light as a feather. It doesn’t come with wheels, but you can still easily pick it up and carry it to the other room. It folds as well, to make the job easier. During the day, just put it next to the living room window and let your little one bask in the sunshine, if it is not too intense of course. The feature allows for the baby to always be by your side while enjoying maximum comfort.

Bedding

The baby bassinet comes with a 100% waterproof mattress and a fitted sheet. A waterproof mattress is a lifesaver as it makes the parents’ job much easier. Babies love making a mess, and it tends to get pretty nasty.

The fitted sheet is a nice addition as well, especially considering the price of the unit. However, it does make an annoying sound.

Safety

The sleeper is supported by a robust metal frame which ensures its security and stability. The fact that the sleeper is entirely surrounded by mesh is brilliant as it practically neutralizes the chances of suffocation. Breathable mesh sides are also important because they increase airflow and maintain room temperature within the bassinet.

What’s wrong with the product?

-Bulky

Even though the bassinet is very light and easy to move from one place to another, it is very bulky. You will have to check whether there will be enough room for it in your bedroom before making the purchase. People living in smaller apartments might especially be disappointed.

-Temporary Usability

This is a fact that has to be repeated over and over again. Bassinets are designed only for temporary use.  Once your child is able to push up and move on their own, it is time to transfer them to a crib.

That usually occurs at their sixth month of life, but not necessarily, it all depends on the pace of your baby’s development. Another factor that limits the usability is weight.

This particular model has a recommended weight limit of 17.5lbs. These facts are important as not adhering to the safety recommendation can pose a risk to your child’s well-being.

Conclusion

The Swaddle Me By Your Side is an excellent choice for parents who are looking for a safe, smart option but do not want to shell out their entire life savings on a piece of baby equipment that will last them only a couple of months. A college fund is probably a smarter priority.

Despite its affordable price, the Swaddle me doesn’t really lack much in quality. It is made to satisfy all the federal safety standards and perhaps even more. It might not be the best solution for mothers who had a C-section as it doesn’t have the best accessibility, however. Nevertheless, it is packed with many features that will assist you in lulling your baby to sleep.
