Over the past few weeks, I have been posting products that are a must have for baby. From the bottles that are at the top of my lists, to the diaper bags and clothes. I know that when I have prepared for my own babies, there are tons of items that I have to add to my registry lists, and when I go to baby showers or when I plan a baby shower, there are certain items that I look for, to see if the parents have added it to their lists and still need it. One of those items is a bassinet. I have learned with my own babies, having a bassinet to use for both night time and nap time, is a must have in those first few months. With a new baby, there is a lot of getting up all times of day and night, so having a bassinet near by for baby to sleep in, can make those first few months a lot easier for the new parent. So when I look for a bassinet, I look for certain features that can make sleep for both baby and mommy a lot easier. Recently I was sent a Kolcraft Cuddle’n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper to review. Having my new little friend to help with this review made this review a lot easier. First thing that I noticed and really appreciated was how easy it was to put this bassinet together. I know for me and other parents out there, when you are preparing for a new baby, there are so many things that need to be put together. You have the stroller, swing, bouncer and so on, so having products that you know you will be needing and using, that are easy to put together, makes the product more appealing. Once I had the bassinet together, I saw that not only did this bassinet have the mobile that was removable, and the mesh sides as well as a safety harness for baby, but it had a incline position for baby to sleep in as well. For me, this would have been the ideal bassinet for when I had Robert due to his reflux, and when my little friends mom saw the incline, she right away said that is exactly what they needed for her. My new little friend has some reflux, and for those first couple of weeks, they were using a wedge to help her keep her food down, but now that they have this bassinet with the incline sleeper on it, they will feel a lot better about her sleeping, and since there is a harness as well, they will not have to worry about her sliding down in the night while she sleeps.
After seeing these features, we all looked at the other features that this bassinet offers, like the fact that the wheels can be removed so that they can use the bassinet as a rocking bassinet. Then with the Light Vibes electronic unit, they not only get a soft glow that is ideal for those night changes, allowing baby to sleep as well as others trying to sleep, but the gentle vibrations, music and nature sounds help soothe baby, so she will be able to fall back to sleep after a change or a feeding. If they choose to keep the wheels on, they can easily move the bassinet from room to room, or if baby wakes up and just needs that comfort, mom can pull the bassinet closer to her, then lock the wheels in place. Then for the storage needs for babies diapers and such, there is a large storage basket that is under the bassinet. In all, myself, my friend and my newest little friend, found this bassinet to be exactly what was needed! So if you are planning for a new baby, or even for a baby shower, be sure to add the Kolcraft Cuddle’n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper to your registry or to the items to get the new mom for the baby shower! Well, to help other new parents out there with their sleeping needs, the wonderful people from Kolcraft would like to give one of my amazing readers thier own Kolcraft Cuddle’n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper!
