These seriously stylish bassinets deliver unmistakable charm to your space while keeping your newborn close by so that you don't miss any of those incredibly exhausting but fleetingly precious moments.

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.

Want to give it a test-run without paying full price? Rent the SNOO for just $112 a month and return it when your little one outgrows it.
