In brief: Bulkhead???

To clarify you do not mean bulkhead as in overhead compartments? If yes then obviously that is not safe.
If you mean in a bassinet at your feet for long flights it is just as safe as as infant being in your arms. I would recommend if airline allows that the bassinet is somehow secured during takeoff and landing.
