The Chicco LullaGo creates a comfortable home-away-from-home with a sleek yet roomy design, breathable mesh side panels and a padded mattress with a zip-and-wash cover. For ultimate portability, the LullaGo can be disassembled and folded in less than a minute and includes a matching carry bag for on-the-go convenience. The best part? All fabrics are removable and machine-washable, including the zip-off mattress pad. That's a major Mom win.

The Mini Ezee Co-Sleeper allows you to pull your baby close for nighttime feeding, soothing or just plain loving. The bassinet comes with two modes: bedside bassinet mode and freestanding bassinet mode. It has a small footprint, making it great for small spaces, and even comes with a carry case to take anywhere you need to go. Plus, it comes with everything you need to get started — a mattress, fitted sheet, carry case and a strap-and-plate set to fasten to the bed for added safety and security.
The circular quilted design with matching sheer panels on each side for airflow adds a mod geometric touch to your bedroom, while the soft, neutral shades work with any color palette. Custom-designed wheels are hidden in the rockers so you can lift and glide the bassinet with ease.
This is the only bassinet that rotates 360 degrees for the ultimate in convenience and safety. Now, your little one can sleep as close as you like while still safely in her own separate sleep area. In addition to bringing baby close, it swivels to make getting in and out of bed hassle-free. Its unique design means baby is visible at your eye level, allowing you to soothe your baby quickly, while mesh walls provide maximum breathability. Another incredible perk? Its side wall lowers and automatically returns, allowing you to tend to your baby while still in bed.

This compact crib from BABYBJORN lets you gently rock your newborn to sleep for a peaceful night’s rest. Its breathable mesh fabric provides air circulation throughout the crib and visibility so you can monitor your little one as they snooze. It’s lightweight enough so you can move it freely around the house and folds up compact for easy storage. The cradle’s gentle rocking is similar to the soothing motion of a stroller. You can easily rock the cradle with your hand or foot, and it also turns your baby’s own movements into gentle rocking. And despite its compact design, the cradle is very stable and has sturdy non-slip feet that keep it firmly in place on the floor. Plus, it looks really pretty.
Elegant and streamlined, this bassinet's style starts from the ground up with walnut rockers and a copper-plated steel frame. The handcrafted base is topped with a micro-suede cover that's removable and machine-washable — always a plus with anything involving a baby.
While this may be the priciest bassinet on our list, the revolutionary design has parents in love with its safety and sleep training features. The included swaddles attach to the bassinet so that baby stays sleeping on her back, reducing the risk of SIDS. Then, the cradle uses white noise and gentle rocking motions to help her go to sleep. It even adjusts the settings if she gets fussy or you can customize them from the built-in app. The gradual weaning feature helps your newborn transition from the bassinet to the crib.
