What are some benefits of using a waterproof bassinet pad?
Some great pros for this item are that they allow parents and caretakers to use just one layer of cotton bedding instead of having separate layers to prevent leaks from ruining everything. They also create more warmth during cold weather which is another plus!
By not needing multiple layers, there’s less chance for blankets getting kicked off or baby overheating since all you need with these pads is one sheet over top. This also means easier diaper changes because there aren’t as many covers needed – most pads can even fit under the sheets so there’s no excess fabric to get in the way.
They also keep all of that wetness contained, which is not only wonderful for babies but it means less work for parents! No more stripping off layers and washing them just because a diaper accident happened. It doesn’t matter if you have hardwood floors or carpeting, these pads will do their job! They are machine washable too – making clean up super easy! All around they make bedtime much easier (and cleaner) than other options available on today’s market.
Steps on How to make a bassinet skirt:
Measure the circumference of your bassinet (slightly smaller than mattress size)
Cut a piece about 12 inches wide and long enough to reach around the entire bottom edge. Fold over so edges meet, and sewing machine straight stitch around leaving an opening for turning inside out. Turn right side out and place on bedding. It sounds so simple, but it is a very time-consuming process.
Fold back as much fabric as you can from the hem at top of the skirt without creating any visible openings or gaps that babies fingers could get caught in. Then fold material under again to encase raw edge securely. Sew folded area closed with needle & thread by hand or use a serger if available. This will create a neat clean finish on the inside of the skirt.
Sew waistband closed, encasing raw edge securely. Sew front and back panels together from top to bottom using a simple straight stitch with needle & thread by hand or use a serger if available. This will create a finished seam for both sides of the diaper cover.

What other alternatives are there if I don’t want to use the Graco pack n play mattress?
The best option is using an alternative safe sleep surface such as a firm flat crib sheet. The same instructions apply for washing the sheets as you would any bedding or clothing. Use cold water on a gentle cycle, separately from other items; tumble dry low heat until completely dry before storing away for next usage.
Can you recommend some portable bassinets?
Of course! Here’s our top three: Fisher-Price Rock N Play Sleeper Chicco KeyFit 30 Travel Bassinet Kolcraft Tiny Dreamer Portable Crib
The first is the Fisher-Price Rock N Play Sleeper. This sleeper has a comfortable incline and can be used for naps at home or overnight sleeping when visiting family or friends. It comes with a removable newborn insert, which provides additional head support for smaller infants, but it also works great without the cushion in place to provide more room as your baby grows taller.
What material is a pack n play mattress made of?
A standard pack n play mattress contains wood fibre insulation inside a plastic cover with an open weave that allows air through but keeps moisture out. It also has waterproof vinyl covering on top and bottom while being held together by two metal bars covered with fabric mesh at each corner so no springs poke up into it!
This type of mattress is not only safe but easy to clean! Pack n play mattresses are well made and should have no issues lasting the whole time you use them. As with any children’s product, look for sturdy construction in a brand you trust when purchasing pack n’ plays.
What’s the difference between a pack n’ play and a play yard?
The biggest difference is that you can use them in different ways. A pack n’play has more uses; it can be used as a changing table, for sleep or rest time, and even storage!
Play yards are great because they tend to last longer than other products and have an attached toy bar with toys hanging down so your baby will be entertained while they’re laying there. They’re also useful when travelling since you just fold up one piece instead of taking multiple pieces along like you would with a pack n’play.
How do I adjust my Evenflo bassinet?
You want the mattress to be at a 45-degree angle. To adjust the bassinet, simply pull up on it while pushing down with your knee so you can get under and see where it needs adjusting. Once adjusted, lower the foot of the bassinet back into place by pulling up on its handle which is located near your baby’s head.
