I have two daughters who went into big cots using the tetra bed inserts, but I found in the early weeks I would co-sleep because of breast feeding and I liked having them right next to me (for ease). I however wouldn't get much sleep as I was would wake up to check that me or hubby hadn't rolled on them. This time I am strongly contemplating buying a bassinet. I have sold all my previous nursery equipment, simply because we had no room/place to store it. My plan is to buy a bassinet and have bub sleep next to us for the first few months and then go out and buy a cot that converts to a toddler or single bed.
I am set on the Mother's Choice Coco Bassinet and it says it will take a baby up to 9kgs. I thought this was allot, considering my girls were about 7/8 months before they hit that weight. I'd be happy to get 6 months out of a bassinet. Looks like it will store easily too.
My other option is the Nature's Purest Moses Basket and stand.
1. How long did you use your bassinet for?
2. Has anyone used either of these, what are your thoughts?
3. Can the Nature's Purest Moses Basket and stand be used as a Bassinet (how is the mattress firmness for sleeping)?
Thanks in advance for any replies
We used our bassinet for the first six months! Then DH decided that we should move DD into her cot! I would have been happy for her to stay with me!
I looked at these ones in the store and wasn't exactly happy with the support they offered, when you actually push down the mattress looks like it bows and it doesn't seem like it has very hard support for bubs! We opted for a bassinet that had a more secure base and then a mattress
