Buying Guide

A modern baby bassinet doubles as a bed and as a way to move your infant from one place to another when he or she is not in a crib. While a number of styles are available, the safety of your baby should override the look and color of the bassinet.

Safety experts suggest that when buying a bassinet or a cradle, which is a bed that rocks a baby, you should try to purchase a product that bears a certification sticker from the Juvenile Products Manufacturer’s Association or the American Society for Testing and Materials. Federal safety guidelines for baby bassinets went into effect in April 2014.

Know the manufacturer’s size and weight limitations for the infant. A product with sides made of wood slats or a mesh-like pattern aids good air circulation. Also, always follow these rules:

  • Always put your infant to sleep on his or her back.
  • For warmth, let your child sleep in a footed sleeper or a wearable blanket.
  • Avoid bassinets that have fabric over the sides because they pose a strangulation hazard.
  • Do not add blankets, pillows or stuffed animals to bassinets. They come with a thin mattress or pad. It’s firm so babies cannot bury their faces in them.

By the time they are about four months old, most babies have outgrown a bassinet. (They outgrow cradles sooner.) The most accurate guideline for when your baby should stop being placed in a bassinet is his or her development. When your babe can roll over, push up on his or her hands or sit up unaided, put the modern baby bassinet away.

A modern baby bassinet in a white, strong and mesh-like material sits on legs of wood that are stabilized by extended metal feet. Another product is oval-shaped and charcoal-colored. White staves accent it and it sits on white, rocker-like legs. This plain bassinet that boasts neutral colors pairs well with modern decor.

A one-piece, concave-shaped bassinet in a black mesh pattern has a truncated, hooded top. It sits on four thin metal legs with stretchers. This bassinet presents a simple, clean and elegant look.

When considering a bassinet, think about how much you will move it. If you will be taking it from room-to-room a lot or outside the home often, then get one that’s lightweight.

Getting one on wheels helps portability. One white piece on wheels is circular with a low profile. Its vertical white slats promote good airflow. Another available item is a mahogany-colored cradle with a curved base for it to rest on the floor. Two handholds are cut into the frame so it can be gripped securely.

Maybe you want to keep an eye on your baby as you do chores around the house. Perhaps you have homebound relatives and friends who you want to see your precious little bundle. Whatever the reason, a modern baby bassinet helps get the job done.
