Easy choice for a secondary home bassinet
August 25, 2018
We've been using the new LullaGo Portable Bassinet in our first-floor living room for times we would like to keep our baby close, rather than taking him upstairs to sleep in his main bassinet in our room. The mattress sits 16" off of the floor, which sometimes feels pretty low, but it is also a great height so that we can still see him while we're on the couch or sitting nearby.
The bassinet came in a box smaller than I expected, which was easy to bring inside, open up, and set up the product by myself during a short nap. The pieces click into place very easily, similar to the other Chicco products we have, which makes for a no-sweat set-up and tear-down process. Price includes a zip-off, washable mattress sheet and lightweight carrying bag, so it's perfect for taking to a quick overnight at Grandma's, or even a dinner party for naps.
It has a sleek, no-frills design which is a breath of fresh air in a world of brightly colored, overly patterned baby gear.
The main cons I see are that the mattress sags a slight bit in the middle, due to it folding for portability, and the travel bag doesn't close, which may make it a bit awkward when traveling with lots of baby stuff, as we do anytime we're on the go with our kiddo. You would have to further secure it for airline travel. I can deal with these things for its simple design and easy set-up.
Quick and easy is the name of the game when you have a new little one at home. And our baby seems to like it! (Note: Chicco provided this product to me in exchange for my honest opinion.)
