Mother sits with her baby on her bed and a Bednest is next to her


The Bednest is one of the most versatile bassinets on the market and its many features make it a truly unique product. It has received fantastic reviews, one reads as per below.

Jools Oliver – baby clothing designer and wife of Jamie Oliver says …..

We love the Bednest – we have never had anything like it before for our other three children. I love the way it is so close to our bed, the sides are really easy to pull down and I could practically roll little Buddy from my boob to bed!!!!! Easy and definitely eliminates the fear of falling asleep with them in your bed and suffocating them, as they lay safe next to you but in their own safe little cosy bed – brilliant! Also large enough to last longer than the Moses basket, Buddy now sleeps in the Bednest in his nursery as I think he is a little small for his cot so it’s perfect.”

Research shows that it is beneficial to the baby to co-sleep with the parents for the first months. It is, however not recommended to share the same bed as this practice increases the risk of SIDS.  Learn more here.

“In New Zealand, the Ministry of Health advises that “the safest place for your baby to sleep is in a cot besides the parental bed for the first six months of the infant’s life”, says Professor Mitchell, who initiated a study on the issue.

He says that in New Zealand more than 50 percent of deaths occur while parents slept in the same bed as baby.”

“The study authors state that babies can still be brought into the parents’ bed for comfort and feeding during the night, but that they should be placed in a cot next to the parents’ bed to sleep.”

The Bednest is attached to the main bed and creates a separate, safe place for your baby. During the night, feeding and settling is much easier and quicker, letting both you and baby get more sleep.

The Bednest is a very versatile baby bassinet as it functions as a bedside bassinet, a free standing bassinet as well as a Moses basket. Having your new baby by your bedside is a great comfort, for you both. You can check on your baby by just stretching out your hand and hopefully settle him/her quickly. For breastfeeding you don’t have to get up, rather you move baby closer to you and stay resting.

The Bednest stand is fully height adjustable via a sliding mechanism and you can adjust it to the exact height required for your adult bed. Straps are provided so you can secure it to your bed. There is a short strap for a bed frame and a long for an ensemble bed.

New legislation in the EU requires a bedside bassinet to sit 12cm below the adult bed and this latest version of the Bednest has a folding feature in the side so that at 12 cm, it can fold outwards at 90° and rest on the adult mattress. The sides are made of see-through mesh to ensure unrestricted airflow and the option to open the side closest to your bed gives you easy access to your baby. While sleeping the side must be fully up.

The Bednest is quickly assembled (in 2 min) without the use of any tools and folds flat for convenient storage between babies.

Product Features:

  • Allows you to have baby by your side in his/her own safe space
  • Secures to framed beds and ensembles alike
  • The mesh sides are easy to open and close
  • Height adjustable stand with over 70 settings
  • The stand can be tilted to relieve reflux symptoms
  • Can also be used as a free-standing bassinet
  • Folds flat for storage or travel
  • UK designed and made in Europe
  • Made from European beech
  • Includes mattress, stand and straps
  • Carry bag available
