What are some safety tips I should follow while using this product?
You must maintain a safe distance between the baby’s face and mesh side panel at all times while sleeping or playing inside Halo Bassinet to avoid suffocation risk associated due to mesh.
Make sure you wash the fabric only if preferred without any other part of the Lullago bassinet frame which is not recommended by Chicco Company as it may damage electrical components inside the product.
Steps on How to clean a foam bassinet mattress?
Put your Lullago bassinet frame on a flat surface. Remove the mattress cover by pulling it off starting from one corner then slowly rolling it towards the other side until you have completely removed it. You must be gentle when doing this to avoid tearing or damaging its material.
Take out all foam padding under the mattress using either your hands or vacuum cleaner, but make sure that whatever tool you are using is clean before turning them onto their surfaces so as not to transfer any germs and bacteria in between components of cleaning equipment.
Discard ripped pieces after thoroughly inspecting for damages if they can still be used again without further forcing damage onto themselves. Use water mixed with mild soap solution along with a sponge or cloth to clean the surface of your mattress. When all surfaces are mostly dry, leave them under direct sunlight for some hours before bringing them back into use.
Sunlight kills off any remaining bacteria that managed to survive the cleaning process earlier on, making it safe again for you and your family members/children or anyone else who will be using this space as a sleeping area once again.

How to close a bassinet or playpen
If you’d like to use a bassinet or playpen as a travelling crib the same rules apply.
This is why it’s important to place babies who sleep on their backs in the same room as where you are sleeping because if your baby does happen to wake up then they will most likely cry out until someone arrives and attends to them, but older children can quickly fall back asleep before anyone gets there so make sure that all doors leading into the room with infants have an open door policy at night time.
If you decide not to (which I recommend) remember that placing any product with wheels away from bedside tables, wall corners or other furniture pieces could pose danger especially when placed close by.
But if you would like to keep the bassinet next to your bedside, make sure it is sturdy and weighs no more than 15 pounds.
And lastly but most importantly remember that any bumpers or toys with strings should be removed from baby’s crib before they go to sleep as these can pose a choking hazard and become hazardous when baby starts crawling and becomes mobile.
Do you need a mattress protector for the bassinet?

Leaking milk or a baby’s urine can cause yellow stains on the mattress pad. These are often hard to remove, but here is an easy trick that does not require using any harmful chemicals! Just mix a cup of water with one teaspoon of lemon juice and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the stained area until it is fully covered then wait at least 30 minutes before washing as usual.
