A Delta bassinet is a small bed for babies that are too young to sleep in an adult-sized crib. There are many different models of bassinets out there, but the basic setup should be similar regardless of what model you have. This blog post will tell you how to set up your new Delta bassinet so that it’s ready for your little one!
Steps on How to set up a Delta Bassinet
Step One: Lay your Delta bassinet’s mattress on top of the base. Make sure that you put it in the right direction, as indicated by arrows on either end of the bed. Line up one side with a slot and then push down to lock into place. This will prevent your baby from rolling around too much while they are sleeping!
Step Two: Find two different cords coming out of each corner of the bassinet’s base—one is for height adjustment, which should be longer than the other cord (this is usually yellow). The shorter cord controls how far apart or close together you want all four legs to stand when they’re set at their lowest/highest level, respectively.
Step Three: Find the two sides of your bassinet and put each one on top of a side of the base, lining up their corresponding holes.
Step Four: Connecting both parts will require you to use an Allen wrench (included with it). Look at where the arrows are pointing inside each hole and try to line them up so that they’re facing in opposite directions—this makes sure that there is no way for you or anyone else from accidentally loosening any part when trying to connect everything.
Be very careful not to force anything by turning too hard if needed; this could end up damaging some pieces! Once connected, tighten all bolts until they cannot be moved anymore – but still allowing you to twist them if needed.
How to Remove a Delta Bassinet
A Delta bassinet is an infant bed used until about the age of six months when babies can be placed in larger baby beds that are designed with safety rails. The average weight limit for most models of this type of small childbed is 25 pounds.
Depending on the model you have, these instructions may vary slightly but should generally follow these same steps: Remove sheets from your Delta’s mattress. Place your Delta’s mattress on the floor
Position your Delta bassinet in an area of your home with available power and access to a water source. The best location for a small child bed is one that allows you easy access to it from inside or outside the house, as well as room for changing diapers nearby.
How to put a Kolcraft Bassinet Back Together
Step 1. Remove your Kolcraft’s mattress and wipe down the plastic bottom of the small child bed with a damp cloth. Allow the bassinet to dry completely before placing it back together.
Place your Kolcraft’s plastic base on top of its metal frame. Line up holes in both pieces, ensuring that screws will fit through them properly when you reassemble.
Step 2. Screws are included with many models; if yours do not have them, use basic wood or machine screws (no longer than three inches) instead. Using an electric screwdriver speeds assembly time significantly!
Screw two sides of each piece together first – one side at a time is most efficient for the task as described below. Once the screws are in place, the two pieces will be held securely together.
Step 3. Now that you have your Delta bassinet’s base and frame assembled, it is time to attach its mattress platform! If not using self-sticking Velcro for attachment purposes (instead opting for an adhesive), now is also the best time to apply this material.
There should already be fabric attached on both sides of where you want your new attachment point(s). Peel off the backing from one side first – keeping the other half covered until ready for use.
Step 4. Place Delta’s plastic base on top of its metal frame. Line up Velcro pieces and press them together. Repeat steps above for the other side of the Delta bassinet frame. Your Delta base should now be securely attached to its metal frame! Now, it is time to add your fabric liner (if one was purchased).
Step 5. Place cotton sheeting on top of the mattress platform. If you have a skirt that goes around the entire perimeter of your bassinet (as pictured), then line up this piece with where the centre will go over the mattress platform – making sure material does not get in between rails when pushing down onto the plastic base.
Note: If no skirt has been included with purchase or if using an alternative option such as a breathable mesh crib liner instead, simply proceed by lining material up with where the centre will go over the mattress platform – making sure material does not get in between rails when pushing down onto the plastic base
Beginning at one of the four corners, push two side pieces through openings in the frame. Use your non-dominant hand to guide the fabric into place while using the other hand to pull the opposite piece and secure it within an opening (ensuring that the cloth is tucked underneath the metal rail).
