You may want to consider a bassinet for your baby to sleep in for the first few months of life. They may find it more cozy and enjoyable in a smaller space. One advantage of a bassinet is its compact size, which is ideal if you want your baby to sleep in your room. Breastfeeding moms will especially appreciate having their baby nearby for those nighttime feedings. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that a baby sleeps in the same room as his parents to lower the risk of SIDS. Another advantage would be its portability, being able to move your baby to another room while napping and again with you at night. Modern baby bassinets by Bresole offer simplistic luxury with a safe and comfortable design. Keep in mind that your baby will outgrow the bassinet in about 4-5 months, so it is important to have a crib as well.
There are some important safety notes that Bresole would like to inform you of when looking to purchase a bassinet for your child. First and foremost, you want to avoid any bassinets that have the rocking or motion feature because this can potentially cause your baby to roll over and become entrapped in the edges . You want to also make sure that your modern baby bassinet has a mattress that fits all the way around the inside and does not have any gaps or spaces to ensure your baby's safety.
A very important idea to keep in mind is where you place your modern baby bassinet. If you happen to have pets or other children around the house, keep the bassinet somewhere safe away from any potential hazards. You want to check the product's safety standard to ensure the least amount of risk.
Some other important considerations to include for your modern baby bassinet is having:
- a sturdy bottom
- secure wheels and locks
- slats that are no larger than 2 3/8 inches apart
- a firm mattress
- safe edges and padding
Remember: No extra pillows or quilts as they are a potential SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) hazard.
