Oh Baby! I’m obsessed with Bassinets

In Baby, Kids by Christina Montoya FiedlerLeave a Comment

It’s official. Baby number two is on the way. We’ve been waiting a long time for this little boy (or girl) and we’ve got a lot of ideas running through our heads about what kind of baby gear we want to use this time around. One sure decision is that we’d like to use a bassinet in the baby’s infant stage instead of a crib. It just seems cozier and easier to have the baby close by for feedings, changes and snuggles.

Thus my obsession began on finding the perfect bassinet. Here’s a look at some of my favorites in no particular order. Now the hardest part will be picking the right one to suit our style and needs.

Cambria Deluxe Co Sleeper

The Cambria Deluxe Co Sleeper is functional yet still sleek. It has lots of room for extras with two storage bins below. Awesome for making sure you don’t go bumping around in the night for burp clothes, swaddle blankets, binkies and more. It has quilted washable fabric that can also be wiped clean – a mother’s dream. Babies are messy!


Monte Tavo Ninna Nanna Bassinet

I love the rich dark wood and the leek minimalist design of this modern bassinet. It takes up up little space and comes apart easily for different functions. It gently rocks to sooth baby – an added bonus. This beauty also comes in white wood and slate grey so it’s a toss up as to which beautiful combination I’d lean towards.  It’s a great change of pace from the fluffy, lacy bassinets our mother’s used.


Handmade Charlotte Rocking Chair/Cradle

It’s a two-in-one dream. This handmade, hand-painted bassinet/rocking chair comes in a variety of colors and fabric shades. It’s truly an act of architectural brilliance. Can you imagine reading a book while simultaneously rocking your baby to sleep in the attached bassinet? I sure can.


Land of Nod White Woven Bassinet

This is more of the typical bassinet with some much-needed improvements – not too fluffy, not too lacey. It boasts a simple pure white color with delicate detailing. It also has a rocking function, which is always welcomed. It’s the perfect place for laying down a sweet, sweet newborn.


Stokke Bounce and Sleep

I cannot stop looking and dreaming of this bassinet. I can picture my baby in it right now – dreaming away. It’s so simple and I think that is exactly the appeal. In a world of baby gear that is often fussy and overdone, this just screams easy. Easily transport from room to room.


Moms, which bassinet or co-sleeper did you get?
