Babyhome Dream - a baby bassinet

Babyhome is a leading European baby manufacturer based in Spain since 2005.  New to US families, Babyhome asked us to pick out our favorite Babyhome piece to giveaway to our readers – so we picked Dream, a lightweight, portable baby bassinet.

Dream is an extremely lightweight cot for baby with an aluminum frame that is easy to assemble/disassemble.  Its innovative adjustable leg system allows, with the simple click of a button, to change the leg position from stationary to a rocker to wheels that allow Dream to be easily moved around the house.  The fabric can be removed from the aluminum frame and washed.  Dream comes with a high-density foam mattress that prevents the baby from getting caught between the edge of the mattress and side of the cot and a honeycomb structured mattress pad that is safe and breathable.  Dream also includes a travel bag.

Dream is available from mbeans ($299).  Visit Babyhome to see their entire US collection.
