Ways to Wash a Bassinet: A How-to Guide

To Wash a bassinet is not always an easy or pleasant task. How do you wash it? How often should you wash it? How much soap should I use?

These are all questions that may go through your head when trying to figure out how to clean your baby’s bedding. In this blog post, we will cover three different ways of washing the bassinet so that you can find what works best for you and your family!


Steps on How to wash a bassinet

Step 1. To clean an infant’s bassinet, first, remove all bedding from inside including sheets and blankets as well as toys that may have been stored there.

Step 2. You can use regular detergent to spot clean any soiled areas but be sure not to overdo it with soap or you will end up leaving behind excess residue which attracts dirt more quickly than normal.

Step3. For this reason, always opt for a very little amount when cleaning surfaces that come into contact with baby-like changing tables and cribs because too much soap leaves behind a film that will attract dirt and dust.

Steps on How to Fold Uppababy Bassinet

There are various steps that you need to follow to successfully fold your uppababy stroller.  

Step 1. First, make sure that the seat is facing forward and there’s nothing inside it before moving on. Afterwards, tilt down the handlebar until they meet with a click sound; this position will allow for easy folding of the frame.  

Step 2. Next, grip the handlebar and push it down until you hear a click sound. Now make sure that both hands are on the frame before folding for safety purposes. Fold your uppababy stroller forward after this step is done.

Step 3. To lock your fold of choice, pull up slightly from where you have pushed down with two hands to engage locks positioned on each side of the handles then press downwards firmly into place using hand force if needed.



There are several benefits in folding the uppababy bassinet properly which includes allowing easy storage anywhere since they’re relatively small as well as not taking too much space while transporting them around outside or inside homes. 

One more advantage would be how easily accessible one becomes when folded because of how compact they’ll be and not need to unload all the things one has brought along with them.


What are some things to look for when purchasing sheet sets?

Material is important since it’s what will touch your baby’s skin directly. It should be soft against the delicate infant epidermis but sturdy enough that you can wash them over and over without worrying about tears or thread fraying apart. 

Look for 100 per cent cotton fabrics with a 300 thread count minimum – these two features ensure durability while providing comfort at nighttime.


How do I care for my UPPAbaby bassinet bedding set?

Use mild soap and damp cloth without harsh chemicals or soaking in a bathtub as this may reduce the longevity of your product. 

Allow to air dry completely before storing. Wash the mattress cover on a regular basis, following the instructions above. 

Use only with an appropriate sheet designed for use with a crib mattress. For best results, line-dry using low heat or hang outside on sunny days if available. 

Do not machine wash more than once per month due to how delicate it is after that amount of washes causing loss of colour quality which can be harmful to children’s health from exposure to too much sun when out strolling during warm months leaving the child unattended near water sources.


Safety Tips on Bassinet

It is possible that how you will go about this may depend on which type of product you have purchased; however, for younger babies who cannot climb out, consider how little space there will be within the pen if your child has grown large enough to stand up or walk around inside

If using on top of an elevated surface such as a table ensure your child does not have access to cords which could pose strangulation hazards even when placed adjacent to seating areas where they might go unnoticed by busy caregivers – any area used should ideally include no more than one child occupant at a time with no objects present, such as toys or cords that could pose tripping hazards.


How long can you use the UPPAbaby Vista bassinet?

This Graco Pack n Play Bassinet is only designed for a maximum of two months usage. It’s not safe to use after your baby reaches 35 pounds or can push up on hands and knees, whichever comes first.


Is the UPPAbaby bassinet compatible with Maxi-Cosi?

Yes, this Graco Pack n Play Bassinet is compatible with your Maxi-Cosi car seat. Just make sure the adapter arm of the bassinet is properly attached to the frame and that it’s locked into place before installing a Maxi-Cosi Mico AP Infant Car Seat onto it.


Can you fold up the UPPAbaby Vista bassinet?

No, sadly you cannot fold the UPPAbaby Vista bassinet for storage or portability purposes. You can however easily move it from room to room by wheeling on its built-in wheels; all while keeping the baby cosy.
