In the first few weeks and months after the birth, all parents want their baby to be as close to them as possible, especially at night. Safe sleep experts recommend that babies sleep in the same room with their parents for the first 6 months. A cradle or bassinet as the first bed is therefore the ideal companion. The big benefit of cradles and bassinets is that they are smaller, lighter and less bulky than a cot. This makes it particularly easy to move them and set them up as additional furniture in the master bedroom for the first few months of your baby’s life. At night, you can put them right next to your own bed for easy feeding and for comforting them when they wake up. Even during the day, these cots prove to be super practical, because they can be moved from one room to another effortlessly. They provide you with the option to always have your child with you.
A traditional bassinet is a small bed with a wicker basket-like structure that is designed for newborns and babies up to four months. Depending on the design, it is equipped with a frame with fixed legs or with wheels. Some bassinets are now designed so that a rocking function can be switched on when in use. This allows you to calm your baby down without taking them out of their bed.
A baby cradle is one of the ultimate classics of baby equipment. It doesn't differ much from a bassinet in terms of size and comfort. It is also equipped with wheels that allow you to place the cot wherever you like in your apartment and thus always have your baby close by. The main feature of a cradle is the rocking function, which gently rocks your baby to sleep. A major advantage is that either mom or dad can rock the cradle, but also your child's movements can cause it to rock as well.
Before you decide on a product, however, it is important to put your baby's future sleeping place to the acid test. This way you make sure that you are not only purchasing a product that looks pretty, but one that is absolutely safe.
The most important features are:
With the right accessories for cradles and bassinets, your baby will feel comfortable and safe from the very first day.
Mattress - We recommend using a firm, breathable mattress such as Little Angel by Träumeland. Soft mattresses can have a negative effect on spinal growth and can also cause your baby to suffocate when lying on their tummy as they can sink in too deep.
Bedding - Just as important as the mattress are duvets, pillows and bed linen because they keep your baby cosy and warm. Bed linen is available in different materials such as terrycloth, cotton and jersey. These materials are particularly suitable for a baby's delicate skin. Bed linen with child-friendly motifs also adds a personal touch to your child's sleeping place.
Cot bumper - An all-round cot bumper offers your baby sufficient protection and additional warmth. It prevents your little one from accidentally hurting their head and protects them from draughts.
Canopy – A canopy makes your cradle or bassinet complete. Not only does it help create a calming and romantic atmosphere, it also makes your baby feel safe and secure.
There are also full sets on the market, such as the 6-piece bassinet set Birthe by Alvi, which contain everything your little one needs for sweet dreams.
Choosing the right baby cradle or bassinet is crucial for your baby's safety, sleep, and comfort as they will spend much of their early life in it. Only when they sleep well can they start new adventures and are ready to learn new skills. The cradle or bassinet that you buy must therefore meet all the necessary safety and comfort guidelines so that your child is provided with safe and healthy sleep at all times. At kidsroom.de, you will find bassinets, baby cradles and the right accessories for the best sleep from the very first day.
