Couldn't be happierWe first purchased this bassinet in late 2016, which was one of the newer models where the side does not do the half fold down (which was cause for the global recall). Our boy was in it for just over 6 months, and it was the best investment. The quality was beautiful. Grateful for the adjustable heights. It always felt very safe - especially for our co-sleeping arrangement. Our boy was always sleeping in it with his hands bound in a swaddle style sleep bag. So he couldn't manouver much or even come close to handling any aspect of the bassinet to pose a risk. We loaned it to my sister for her first baby, and are about to use it again for our second.

Fabulous and StylishAfter dealing with some terrible baby products, it is worth a mention to those that are fantastic and make life easier. This is such a beautiful design, easy to adjust, clean, access baby and pack away. Can not recommend enough Show details · 1
Perfect for first time mums!We are so pleased we went with the Bednest for our son. Having it so close to our bed and being able to see through the mesh, meant those first few nights at home were a lot easier to adjust to as a first time mum. Being able to quickly unclip the side so you can put a hand out easily or for the night time feeds really helps. It also looks great! Highly recommend.
I wish I had one for my othersThe bednest by danish design has become a life saver for us. After having a c section being ale to attend to my baby was so much easier. The side simply folded down and clipped back up. I was able to see him and he could see me through the see through mesh walls. He had some nasty reflux and terrible bronchilits where laying him flat on his back wasn't an option. We were able to adjust the bednest so he was on a slight angle. Definitely recommend!!
I wish I had this for my other two!We used the Bednest for our 3rd child, and the benefits of this style of bassinet vs a traditional style one were so much greater. Having our baby so close to the bed with the drop down side, meant that whenever she woke during the night, I could quickly settle her and ensure that the crying didn't escalate to a point where the whole family woke up! I also felt that being so close to her while we slept created a beautiful bond and I really didn't want her to grow out of it. The other great feature that we enjoyed was the convenience of transpor... Read moreting the Bednest. We went down to our holiday house a few times in the first 6 months, and it was much nicer to have our baby sleep in her familiar bed then something she didn't know. I would highly recommend the Bednest to any parent and I only wish I had this for my other two.
Poor Quality and Lacks DurabilityWe used our bednest for six months. While it is convenient the quality associated with such a premium priced product certainly is lacking. Firstly we noticed that the mattress had about an inch gap between the frame which is dangerous by SIDS guidelines. We contacted Bednest who immediately sent out a new mattress (which now has approximately a 1cm gap. Still not ideal but we were happy with the improvement). Secondly the sidewall of the bednest snapped making the bassinet completely unsafe. Again we contacted Bednest who advised that although ... Read morethe product is under warranty a 55 pound postage fee would be necessary to ship the replacement piece to Australia from the UK as they do not have an Australian Service Center despite selling into Australia. We expected a lot more from a premium product and certainly feel like we invested in a product that has not matched up to the premium price tag.
Newborn Sleeping made easyWhen I went shopping for a Bassinet I found the Bednest. Straight away I knew it was what I would have loved for my other two children.. This product was not available then.
Positives - Attaches to the bed at the perfect height. Open onto bed for quick settling and feeding and then easy to put baby back its own enclosed space while we sleeping. Able to tilt to assist my babies reflux issues.Folds down quickly and easy to take for day sleeps or weekend away. Looks so beautiful, Modern. Can use as a free standing Bassinet even without the stand.
Negative - I thought it was a little expensive at first but after using it worth every cent plus I am going to share this with my other family members having a Baby.
