An Amazon's Choice, the Graco Dream Suite Bassinet is more than what meets the eye.
Featuring a changing station, this is hands down the best 2-in-1 portable co sleeper especially to those that are limited in space.

What We Love
Reversible Bassinet and Changer
Besides being a bedside bassinet where your newborn can sleep by you through the night, the Graco Dream Suite Bassinet has a changing station incorporated underneath the the sleeping base as well.
With just a simple push of a button, the bassinet will flip around to reveal a changer pad at the bottom so you can change baby's diaper there and then.
Now this is not something that is new, given there is quite a number of bassinets out there that do the same thing.
But the Dream Suite stands out to us most because it is able to accommodate babies up to 30lbs.
What this means is that even if baby no longer sleeps in the bassinet, you can continue using the Dream Suite as a changing station for as long as it's required.
You see, most separate changing tables have a maximum weight capacity of 30 pounds anyway so this is no different to any.
With this bassinet, you don't need to buy a separate changing table and not only is that cost-effective, it also reduces the amount of floor space required.
The storage basket underneath will help store all your essentials so you can have them close at hand.
You basically get a complete bedside care center all-in-one, at the price of one, really.
Wheels for Portability
There is a reason we say it is the best portable bassinet - it has 4 lockable castors that enable you to wheel it anywhere around the house.
And because of the interchangeable bassinet/ changing station feature, it allows you to change baby's diaper anywhere in the house without the need to rush to the nursery each time a change is required.
Since babies' diaper will need to be changed multiple times a day, such portability really makes a difference in the long run.
This includes their lockable wheels and canopy (though this one here includes removable soft toys for baby's entertainment) but if you look closely, they are actually quite different.
For one, the Dream Suite has a 2-speed vibration mechanism that soothes and calms baby down and it has mesh sides that allow both maximum airflow for baby's comfort and visibility for parents.
Because of these, the Dream Suite is pricier than Sweet Beginnings even though both are regarded as some of the best portable bassinets in the market.
Things to Note
The Graco Dream Suite Bassinet can be a little hard to assemble, given the dual mechanism but this is something to be expected for a 2-in-1 baby bassinet.
Once done and dusted, you will appreciate all the convenience it brings to your life!
For a 2-in-1 bassinet, the Graco Dream Suite Bassinet is considered very reasonably priced.
If you have limited space, we think this might just be the best co sleeper for newborn choice you can consider.
