When Do You Need a Bassinet?

Baby bassinets can be a real lifesaver and they’re usually quite affordable. It’s just one of the clever devices that parents can use to improve their quality of life during those first few days or weeks with a newborn.

While babies might not yet be ready to be left on their own right away, especially if they’re premature, bassinets are often still very portable and most parents find it easy to transfer them from room to room as needed without waking up their precious child prematurely.

Having your child nearby during those early years is not only convenient, but it builds a strong bond between parents and their children. The close proximity allows babies to feel supported and secure in that they understand that this new environment is just right for them without compromising safety.


What to Do When Your Baby Won’t Sleep In The Bassinet

Whether it’s the middle of the day or the middle of the night, there’s nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby. The snuggles, their little sounds, and—maybe most importantly—the chance for parents to grab some sleep of their own. Nothing could be better.



#1. If you find that your baby isn’t sleeping well in their bassinet, you may want to check with them if they’re hungry. They may need to be fed more often especially during periods of growth and cluster feeding.

#2. Your baby has a dirty diaper. No matter how tired the baby might be, they won’t be able to sleep peacefully if they are uncomfortable. This makes it important for you to take care of the problem before bedtime comes around – otherwise your child will suffer for longer than necessary.

Your baby is too hot or cold. Adjust the room temperature according to your child’s temperament. Place your child at a distance from heat sources, if they are very sensitive to heat.


How Long Is Recommended For a Baby to Sleep In a Bassinet?

Most bassinets are designed for infants to sleep in, but generally speaking, they can hold up to six months of age when the child is no longer small enough to fit into it. Many parents find that it’s okay to let their younger infants stay nestled in this environment for a bit longer if they aren’t big for their age.


Can a Baby Sleep In a Bassinet If Rolling Over?

A bassinet can be used for babies up to two months old. To be on the safe side, it’s best if you start transitioning your baby into a crib or playpen around that time.

It’s also important to note that after babies reach the age of four months they won’t know how to roll over and may not have enough strength in their neck muscles to protect their heads. They might also not know how to sit up yet which causes another risk factor when it comes to using a bassinet.

Can a Newborn Go Straight Into a Crib?

It is okay to put the baby right into the crib after birth, and that’s probably what you will end up doing. A lot of parents simply put their new-born straight into the crib. If you’re planning to co-sleep with your infant for a period of time before making the transition to a crib (allowing them to be close for breastfeeding or comforting), then get a bassinet for this specific purpose instead.
