One of the most important things parents need to consider when they start buying items for their baby is the bassinet that the baby is going to use. Baby bassinets are usually oval-shaped beds that are ideal for infants that are a few weeks or months old. Baby bassinets come in different shapes and sizes but what exactly do parents need to look for in choosing the bassinet? What are things to avoid when setting up the bassinet?
What to Look for In A Baby Bassinet
The Newer, the Better
When buying a bassinet, as much as possible, buy new. Second-hand bassinets might have some damage that would compromise the quality of the bassinet. If you do buy second-hand, make sure to inspect it thoroughly. Make sure that no part of the bassinet has been replaced and the original parts and screws are still intact. Avoid accepting DIY baby bassinets or heirloom bassinets as these might not have gone through quality checks and might be unsafe for the baby.
