What makes a bassinet safe?
The CPSC advises to look for bassinets or bedside sleepers that have a sturdy bottom and wide base, with smooth surfaces, and a mattress that is firm and fits tightly in the bassinet. The Newton Bassinet & Bedside Sleeper is made with a strong birch plywood base, with stabilizers built in for extra stability. The smooth mesh offers a soft-but-fully breathable surround for your baby to be cradled in, with a Wovenaire® core breathable mattress made to fit securely for your babies safety and comfort.
Why does the bassinet & bedside sleeper have multiple height settings?
While multiple height settings can make it easier for parents of different heights and reaches to access the baby, the height settings are designed to ensure proper height setting in relation to the parents' bed height. For safety, it’s important that the top rail not be taller than the adult mattress height. For this reason, we provide 8 settings to properly adjust the bassinet as needed to your sleep surface.
How does the bassinet become a bedside sleeper?
Safety straps are provided to secure the bedside sleeper position next to your bed frame. These straps are placed under the mattress and over the bed frame or box spring for safety purposes. The panel has a hidden zipper that allows for the front bar releases to be exposed for removal, and the front panel to fold down.
Will this bassinet work with my bed height?
Our bassinet is designed to fit most bed heights. In bedside sleeper mode, the recommended range is 19½ inches - 25 inches. If your bed is taller than this range, rest assured that our bassinet is still safe to use — your baby will simply be situated a bit lower. Alternatively, it can always be used as a standalone bassinet (no matter your bed height). As a reminder, always be sure follow to follow the complete instructions for assembly and use.
Top 3 Bassinet Questions
Do I need to have a bassinet or bedside sleeper?
While each family’s needs are different, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies share the same room as their parents for the first six months. Baby should have their own, dedicated safe sleep space such as a bassinet or bedside sleeper, and not bed share.
How long will my baby sleep in the bassinet?
Normally, babies will spend up to the first six months in a bassinet or bedside sleeper. As your baby begins to grow, starting to transition them into their cribs for naptime is a great way to help them get used to their crib. Having a Newton Crib Mattress in your crib will ease your baby into their crib setting, as the comfort and breathability they have become used to in the bassinet will be present in their new sleep space as well.
