Anyway, this bassinet is beautiful which I believe is the reason people buy it. This was the case for us--it matches our nursery decor with the natural wood and the classy look. However, it is true that the mattress is very thin. I fixed that by buying an extra bassinet/cradle pad to place underneath to give it a little more padding. The locking mechanism doesn't completely locked--it still moves, not much, but our baby does tend to end up on the edge with her face smooshed against the sides. This didn't really bother us--our baby did not seem to mind it and I don't freak out as much anymore--she's my 3rd child. Also, it doesn't rock automatically--you have to rock it yourself if you want that option. No big deal for me because I only used the bassinet at night next to our bed for convenience--I am breastfeeding and I did not want to have to go all the way to her room every two hours just to feed her. She just turned 3 months and is pretty much sleeping through the night so she is no longer using the bassinet--she is now sleeping in her crib in her room. Oh, the music does sound pretty bad. I didn't really use or care for it. I just played her own classical music CD. But I did like and found it very convenient to have the large storage area underneath. I used it to keep diapers, wipes, blankies, etc.
As far as quality, I think that it is pretty good.Read more ›
My Daughter just gave birth to her first child (a Son, 7 lbs, 5 0unces) a few weeks earlier than expected. She had seen this bassinet and loved it, so we hurridly purchased and assembled it before she arrived home from the hospital. We had not read any product reviews or consulted a consumer products rating reporting agency before purchase, however my Daughters Sister-In-Law did so immediately upon learning what bassinet had been purchased.
A lengthy series of phone calls ensued alerting us to the potential hazards that could befall our newest bundle of joy should the cradle of the bassinet not lock sufficently and the baby could possibly roll beyond the confines of the newborn sleeping positioning device and become lodged against the side of the bassinet. This could potentially cause suffocation and this really concerned us. I was still visiting there at the time, as was MY Sister-In-Law. We both immediately inspected the bassinet and looked for a solution to the problem.
We found the perfect solution. The bassinet is the most sturdy one on the market in it's price range. The rocking feature wasn't what attracted my Daughter to the bassinet, she was impressed by the fact that very, very sturdy, it's solid wood, generous in size, has plenty of storage under the bassinet and is very affordable.Read more ›
1. It's beautiful! I fell in love with the way it looks.
2. It rocks--yes you have to rock it yourself, heaven forbid, but rocking is key for a newborn.
3. It has a nice storage area in the bottom--handy for diaper changing in the middle of the night!
4. My little guy WILL NOT sleep in anything else--the size is perfect for a newborn.
Now the negatives...
1. If you ever want to wash the bedding--GOOD LUCK!!! I broke a piece of the frame trying to take it apart to remove the bedding and had to get a new piece off the store's floor model (don't people wash the bedding--hello, yuk!!!)
2. It doesn't lock in place the best and yes, a baby up to the maximum weight limit WILL sometimes have his face smooshed against the side. If youre a new mom this is kinda scary, but you get used to it.
3. The music does kind of sound like demons. I never use it.
4. PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ON WASHING/DRYING. If you wash it and put it in the dryer, do not assume it will work for you a second time--I melted my bedding and have to order new!
Hey first time mom what do you expect? You decide what's important for you.

Worst music ever! Just give me white noise if it's going to be that bad. And come on, do I really have to keep rocking it myself? What year is this?Published 10 months ago by Jesse Clark
This is a very nice bassinet. Larger than many out there so you get more use out of it. It goes well in a house as a nice piece of furniture. Read morePublished on January 8, 2011 by J. Chapin
