Bassinet and bedside sleeper reviews

We test more than 25 bassinets and bedside sleepers including models from Boori, Fisher Price and Childcare, to find the best - and safest - sleeping option for your young baby.

Last updated: 17th November 2014

If you're trying to decide on the best sleeping arrangement for your new baby, you may be considering a bassinet rather than putting bub straight into a cot. Bassinets don't take up as much space as a cot and can more easily be placed in your bedroom beside your bed (or even attached to your bed, if it converts to a bedside sleeper).

Our bassinets test sets out to find the safest, easiest to use and durable sleeping spot for your newborn, that will also suit your home, your family and your budget.

CHOICE only recommends babies' and kids' products that meet our strict safety criteria. Our tests often go above and beyond the minimum safety requirements set by standards and regulations. This does mean we're sometimes unable to fully recommend any models in our tests. Our results will tell you why, and if any are worth considering. For more, see how we test bassinets and bedside sleepers.
