Which Bassinet is Best for You?
There will always be a debate about whether babies should sleep with their parents or not. One article will say no while another say yes. It seems that each parent knows what’s best for their own baby.
In the first few months after the baby is born you will more then likely not want the baby to be out of your sight. Bassinets and bedside sleepers are great approaches to being able to keep your baby near you when they are napping or sleeping at night especially if you are nursing. Bassinets are nice because they are lightweight and can be moved from room to room quite easily.
Things to Consider:
- Will you be travelling with your bassinet?
- Do you want the baby up high so pets can’t bother them.
- Do you want the baby bed level so you can reach baby easily from bed?
- Do you want wheels so it can move easily from room to room.
- Do you need it to swivel or fit into tight spaces?
- Will you need it to fold up to fit in your car?
- Do you want it to rock, play music or vibrate?
- Do you want the baby to lay flat or would you like one with upclining choices?
- Do you want a hood so a bright light isn’t shining on baby’s face?
