Title: Not High Enough for Tall Beds, Not Breastfeeding Friendly - Pay Attention to Measurements!
Content: This bassinet is beautiful & easy to set up. This is our 2nd bedside bassinet, after ordering our first one in 2021. I ordered this one specifically because of the wheels (our last one didn’t have them), the beautiful color, the underneath storage & it being travel-friendly. However, it is NOT FOR HIGH PROFILE PLATFORM BEDS Before ordering, I measured the height of my bed, which is a high profile platform bed, to make sure this would reach the top of our mattress (our previous bassinet reached the top perfectly!). At a max height of 34 inches & the top of my mattress being 33 inches, I thought we were good to go. Unfortunately, I was wrong. The bassinet DOES reach the top of our mattress, but the actual bed/mattress that the baby sleeps in DOES NOT. As a nursing mama, I loved being able to safely nurse (side by side position) my toddler when he was an infant, while he was laying in his bassinet & I’m in the bed. It made sleeping & nursing feel more safe. With this bassinet, I would not be able to nurse, & I would have to lean down to get our new baby out. If you do have a taller bed, I highly recommend looking for bassinets that have a max height of 44 inches (which is what our last bassinet was). Luckily, our new baby has not arrived & we can return this & use the old bassinet w/o wheels until we can get a new, taller bassinet delivered! Finally, I struggled with unlocking/locking the side that drops down & opens against the bed. We didn’t have to struggle with our last one, which makes this another inconvenience for us - because we opened/closed the bassinet multiple times per day. I don’t want to have to struggle each time! All in all, these are just simple considerations & does not speak to the quality of the product.
