View Full Version : Need bassinet suggestions for when baby stays in our room!

We like the Eddie Bauer bassinet at Babies 'R Us, but don't want the music that comes with it. Does Eddie Bauer make a bare bones bassinet? Has anyone had any luck with other bassinets?? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I know nothing about the EB bassinet, but we bought a simple winnie the pooh bassinet/co-sleeper (the three in one) from Walmart and have loved it so far. Our baby prefers to sleep in it than in our bed, the music on the mobile is very soothing (much more so than the other fancy tiny love symphonies mobile we have), the mobile has winnie hanging on it and small lights that shine on and off on him at different angles. This so fascinates our little girl in the dark that she babbles with Pooh for a while and then goes to sleep. The top of the canopy also had Pooh tigger and eeyore, and if we don't put on the mobile, she babbles at them for a while and then goes to sleep. Plus the bassinet can be used to rock her as well, which is great. I've never once had to walk back and forth with DD to put her to sleep since I got the bassinet. This is kind of a long post, but I really have loved this bassinet, and am really glad I got it, especially since I was contemplating not getting one in the beginning.

Thanks! Maybe we will go check that one out. We bought a Pack-N-Play yesterday, but feel like we should have something a little more comfortable.

We used the Pack 'n Play bassinet in our room. We had the full size Pack 'n Play on the main floor for DS to nap in during the day. He was able to sleep well in either. I like the portability of the Pack 'n Plays. We took the bassinet on a cross country flight when DS was about two months old because we had to leave town for a family emergency. It worked great and wasn't too hard to lug. We're planning on taking the full size on a trip to Europe in the fall so DS has somewhere to sleep.

If you are looking for some bare bones bassinets, you can try www.badgerbasket.com. They have been making bassinets for years and I dont think any of their models have the electronics. They make the classic "wicker" style in a standard size and jumbo size if you want really basic. A friend of mine used their jumbo and really liked it. It is a very simple and simply constructed item.
