Top 13 Baby Bassinets in Australia 2022

Choosing a baby bassinet or co sleeper is one of the harder choices you'll make as a new parent. It's often made without a lot of knowledge of what your baby is going to be like, how they'll sleep in a co sleeper bassinet and what kind of approach you'll take to sleep as a family.

For some families, they prefer to keep their baby close in a co-sleeping arrangement to provide easy access for settling and feeding. For others, they like to establish a space for the baby that's their own, with calming surroundings that make it easy to promote the beginnings of self settling.

Either way having a baby bassinet or co sleeper means you can decide all of these decisions once you baby is born.

Safety warning for bassinets:

It should be noted that healthcare professionals recommend that your baby sleep in your room for the first year of their life, or at least until they are six months old, as it helps to greatly reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI) including SIDS and fatal sleeping accidents.

Also, it is recommended that there should be nothing else in the bassinet while your baby is sleeping besides a mattress and a fitted sheet. That means no toys of any kind, no bumpers, comforters or pillows as they can pose a potential SIDS risk, according to Red Nose Guidelines.

What should you be looking for in a baby bassinet?

What you'll need from a baby bassinet or co sleeper depends entirely on a few different variables. It's important to sit down with your partner before your baby arrives and try to work out how you would like to approach sleep, while factoring details surrounding your space, your birth and your family arrangements. 

Co sleeper bassinet:

Many parents opt for a co sleeper bassinet for their new baby as a way of keeping them close in the first few months. This is a good way to ensure easy access for overnight feeds and for re-settling. Many co sleeping bassinets feature an open side that lines up to the side of your bed, so that they are effectively sleeping in a small extension off the side of your bed.

Smart bassinet:

Smart bassinets such as the Snoo are making a big impact in the world of baby bassinets, as they provide real time reactions to baby's cries and movements, helping to re-settle and take some of the pressure off parents. Smart bassinets also connect to an app that provides real time data on night wakings and quality of sleep, which can help parents paint a picture of a baby's sleeping patterns.

Swivel bassinet:

Swivel bassinets are an innovative option for many parents, but especially those who have undergone a Caesarean birth. The procedure and resulting wound - not just from a C-section birth, but also a regular birth that might require stitches - means that easy access to your baby without straining is essential. 

Special features:

Many baby bassinets or co sleepers come with an array of features designed to help settle a baby. When looking to purchase a bassinet, it's a good idea to speak to family and friends about which features they deem worthwhile, so you can determine which you would actually use. Some features include vibration, lullabies, nursing alarm (to stop you from falling asleep during feeding) and a built in light.

Real review: Austin Wright, amazon.com

"We bought this crib because we planned to have baby in our room for up to a year, and I wanted him in a solid wood, organic mattress, chemical-free, good air circulation, crib-like environment without putting a full-size crib in our room (because a full size would take up way too much room in our small master).

Alma Bloom mini crib was the answer and we absolutely LOVE it. This is our third baby but first mini crib and I'm kicking myself for not getting this with my first two kids. When I purchased I actually disliked that it was on wheels, because I didn't like the aesthetic and I didn't think I would actually move it around the house much. I was 100% wrong. I love being able to wheel the crib out into our living/dining/kitchen space in the morning. It easily fits through doorways/around tight corners. Thanks to this crib, baby takes all his naps in the heart of the hustle and bustle of our home, which means I can keep an eye on him constantly if I want to, and he learns to sleep through noise (a necessity with two rambunctious big siblings). I also love that I can roll it right next to my bed in the middle of the night, then push it back into the corner if it's in the way during midnight nappy changes."

Real review: Laura, happiestbaby.com.au

"Life saver! Sleep saver! The Snoo had our baby sleeping basically through the night from day one. Only waking for feeds. Her older brother didn’t have the Snoo and when he was little we had to be up all night settling and rocking him. The Snoo let us give us baby what they need and then put them down so we can sleep.
The transition using the weaning function was so easy, little one transferred to cot at 7 months without a hitch. Thank you, Snoo!"

Real review: Emi, productreview.com.au

"So glad that we opted for this bassinet as it has been amazingly convenient and safe! I ended up having a emergency caesarean and the swivel feature was a godsend... Instead of painfully moving in and out of bed each time bubs needed a feed I could simply pull the bassinet in towards me and lean down on the side (it has a spring edge that lowers for you to pick baby up) and feed him without leaving the bed. The fabric and over all design is really modern and chic... It blended so nicely into our bedroom. The mesh sides are also a great safety feature as you can easily see bub and don't have to worry about air flow (especially when they start to roll into strange positions). Our boy is quite big and he still fits in it and he is nearing 6 months old. The only downside is that it is very heavy to move and may prove a little bulky in the way of storage as the legs are quite large. I would definitely recommend this bassinet!"

"We love our baby bjorn bassinet... it is easy to move from room to room, easily collapsible for traveling and looks super chic! I like the height, which enables you to easily throw your arm over while laying in bed to give Bub a reassuring pat when needed, as well as the gentle rocking feature."
