Step One: Remove the pad from your Graco Bassinet
Step Two: Flip it over and grab a corner of the fabric, pull up to remove bottom cover (A); repeat with the other three corners. If you have an older model that has ties in each corner, cut them but save them for future use! You can also just fold these covers if they are still usable after cleaning
Step Three: Unhook the muslin liner at both ends by pressing down on small button tabs near the base of the mattress; lift out and set aside or keep clean and store inside bassinet when not in use so it won’t get dusty/dirty (B)
Note: Both pieces should be stored together as one unit for storage purposes. However, if you prefer to store the mattress and liner separately, that’s fine too!

Do not dispose of it until sure it is no longer needed! As an added note, some models have storage pockets underneath where you were sitting when removing the bottom cover under-mattress – check to see if yours does!
Steps on how to make a bassinet sheet fit tighter
A bassinet sheet will fit a little more snugly than a standard crib mattress. If you have an older baby, he or she may be able to pull the sheet off of the pad and play with it in his/her mouth under your nose while you’re sleeping. This is not only dangerous but also very annoying!
o make sure that this doesn’t happen, try using safety pins at each corner of the sheet to help secure it firmly onto the pad.
The best place for these pins would be on top of either end (the headboard and footboard) where they won’t show when mats are tucked around them after making bedding adjustments; however, if necessary, simply pin across any other available spaces between mesh holes along the side.
