Choosing the best bassinet for your little one can be a daunting task—especially if you want it to compliment your living space instead of clashing with it. Newborn sleep patterns (or lack thereof) are no joke, mama, but why sacrifice style for function if you don't have to?
We've rounded up the best modern, minimalist bassinets across all budgets for style-conscious mamas. These sleek options will keep baby safe + comfy while also fitting in with almost any bedroom decor.
Find the best bassinet that's just right for your family from one of our favorites below!
There are so many things to love about this bassinet that it's tough to choose just one. The sleek, simple design compliments any bedroom and the stable four-point base tucks neatly under beds, giving you the closeness and convenience of co-sleeping combined with the safety of having baby in his or own space. (The side wall lowers so you can access baby without having to get out of bed—genius!) The entire bassinet also swivels 360 degrees, so you can find the position that's just right for you and your little one.
It even includes a waterproof mattress + fitted sheet, a nightlight, sounds, music, and a vibration feature. They truly thought of everything!
2. SwaddleMe By Your Side Sleeper
If you decide that co-sleeping is right for your family, then this modern bassinet is top of our list. It's a great way to provide little ones with their own safe space while providing you with the closeness and comfort of co-sleeping.
The mesh sides allow for air circulation and visibility, and the sturdy metal frame means you won't have to worry about rolling over on baby. It features a compact fold for easy travel and includes a mattress pad and fitted sheet.
3. Moba Moses Basket
We are absolutely swooning over this ultra modern take on the traditional Moses basket. The gorgeous color options, a fully ventilated base and sides, a waffle-woven cotton liner, and a supportive mattress are just a few of our favorite features in this portable, sleek basket.
We also love that all components are hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, completely washable, and crafted from sustainable materials. Pair it with the dual-function rocking + stationary Moba Stand for ultimate portability.
4. Chicco Portable Bassinet
Although technically designed for travel, we think this simple, convenient bassinet works just as well for a permanent newborn sleep solution. It features a quick, easy setup, a streamlined + lightweight structure, and smooth, soft fabrics. Mesh panels on each side encourage air flow, and it even comes with a bag for storage + travel.
5. Baby Bjorn Harmony Cradle
One of our absolute favorite brands for modern, minimal baby gear, Baby Bjorn doesn't disappoint with this seriously gorgeous bassinet. We love that it rocks easily with your hand or foot—or even with baby's own movements—providing your newborn with the gentle motion that helps encourage sleep.
The bassinet's sides are made from soft and airy mesh, so even if baby presses her face against the side (which she will!), you won't have to worry about air flow. And the bassinet is easy to move, making it a great sleep solution for the bedroom and beyond.
6. Monte Ninna Nanna Bassinet
Modern, minimalist and totally stunning are just a few words that come to mind after laying eyes on this splurge-worthy bassinet. Crafted by hand and featuring a beautiful two-tone grey and white design and birch wood frame, this bassinet is a true heirloom piece that can be passed on to future design-lovers in the family.
It's more than just pretty, though—the micro-suede cover is removable and washable for easy cleaning, it's made with non-toxic finishes, and it includes a waterproof mattress and two 100% cotton fitted sheets.
7. SNOO Smart Sleeper
Design + technology meet in the ultimate "smart" bassinet, the first ever baby-responsive bassinet developed by Dr. Harvey Karp of the 5 S's soothing technique fame. The bassinet's sleek + simple looks are deceiving; the SNOO detects your baby's cries and automatically responds with the best level of sound and jiggly rocking, mimicking gentle womb rhythms and soothing most fussing in under a minute.
It also alerts parents if baby needs more attention, and includes a built-in swaddle that's one of our faves. How can you really put a price on a good night's sleep, anyway?
