The bassinet or baby basket is the most used option for the newborn to sleep. It's about a wicker basket or any other natural material (rattan or bamboo) which allows the baby to sleep in a place with full perspiration. It is usually oval and with rounded edges so that babies do not suffer any damage.
In a bassinet, the baby is very protected. Since he feels good, he manages to fall asleep alone more easily than when he is in the middle of a big bed. This option is especially suitable for very sensitive and reactive babies.
The bassinet for baby is designed as a crib. It is so that newborn babies can sleep during the first months (it is used until the baby is 3 months old).
Although the wicker baskets (with fiber mesh) are very nice, they require the use of a padded cover or crib protector so that the little one does not injure himself with the rigid crossbars.
The bassinet is purchased without a mattress. You will have to look for a baby mattress from proper size and firm hold. The vegetal fibers As the bamboo they are used more and more to make mattresses for baby carrycots.
As soon as your baby runs out of room to reach out and touch the edges, you'll need to move them to a larger crib. At Alondra we have all kinds of cots: 60x120cm cots, cot-beds, convertible cots...
In the case of this bassinet model, the structure of the legs is fixed, for greater safety. Wheels cannot be added.
One of the priorities in the manufacture of Alondra cribs and mini-cribs is the health of babies. That is why we choose to use solid wood or natural fibers, without painting or treating. This carrycot model is made of natural rattan fibres, a rigid but pleasant material for the baby.
The wicker is treated to eliminate psocopter larvae. These are sometimes found on palm fronds. This carrycot will be ideal for the first months of your baby's life.
We recommend using the specially designed mini-crib linen for this baby bassinet. Although any textile for a 50x80 or 50x90cm mini-cot can also be used.
For the crib, we recommend using the oval mattress, specially made for it.
It complies with the UNE-EN 1130:2020/AC:2021 standard (the same as the co-sleeping mini-cot) and has all the certificates that guarantee the safety and health of the newborn baby.
Unfortunately, the structure of the legs of the carrycot is fixed and rigid. It can not be disassembled.
