Momtrends Must-Haves: Cribs & Bassinets

One of the first things you’ll need for baby is a cozy place to sleep. This month in our Momtrends Must-Have awards series, we’re bringing you our favorite bassinets and cribs and travel beds. Whether you’re looking for a compact cradle, lightweight travel crib, or a modern centerpiece for your nursery, we’ve gathered up our must-have beds for your babe. Click through to see our favs and scroll to the bottom to enter to win our favorite modern bassinet. (Missed our other Must-Have awards? Check out our top stroller picks and favorite high chairs.)


Cribs & BassinetsOne of our favorite features of the Baby Bjorn Cradle is its simplicity. From the assembly to the style, this bassinet is the perfect sleep solution for your newborn. The lightweight frame is easy to move around the house, and the low height and mesh sides make it easy to keep an eye on your babe. This cradle doesn’t rock back and forth but provides gentle jiggling similar to a stroller on the move with its springy feet that can be activated with the parents’ hand or foot or the baby’s own motions. The cradle cover, mattress and cover are all machine-washable for those inevitable accidents, and you can also add on the option cradle canopy. Be sure to buy the fitted sheets – the bassinet itself doesn’t come with any included. BUY: Amazon or Magic Beans
