Bassinets vs Cribs

The first night home from the hospital you may place your baby in a bassinet within the safety of your own room to stay close to them for nursing purposes, and other reasons. I know that for all my sweet babies I had them sleep in a bassinet for the first 6-8 weeks, then I transitioned them into their crib, located in their own bedroom (providing you have a separate bedroom for your baby).

This can be a challenging transition, especially if your baby was a preemie. If your baby was or is a preemie you may find yourself keeping them in a bassinet a little bit longer.

Some parents do without a crib and just use a bassinet until they are too big or before it becomes unsafe. Bassinets are not as sturdy as cribs so it's important to know the risks of a bassinet vs a sturdy crib. Let's look at the cons of a bassinet and the benefits of a crib.

Cons of a bassinet

- Though a bassinet is cheaper than a crib, your baby will outgrow it and then you will end up having to purchase a crib.

- When a baby begins to roll over the bassinet can become a safety hazard. The bassinet can tip over, especially when they start to pull themselves up in it.

- The comfort level is far less than a crib mattress. Bassinets only contain thin pads.

- A bassinet is meant to be portable and lightweight. Anything can happen so it's important to examine the durability between a crib and a bassinet.

Benefits of a crib

- The swinging or gliding motion of a crib can calm and soothe a fussy baby.

- Your baby has a lot more space than that of a bassinet which means it's cozier.

- A crib can still be placed next to a parent's bed, taking into account the size of the crib and the master bedroom.

The only cons of cribs that I see are:

- They are not transportable

- They cost more

Hopefully this gives you a better idea and understanding of the differences between a crib and a bassinet. How about you - which do you prefer, or do you use both in time? We would love to hear from you.

  1. We like the fact that the bassinet gives you the option of moving it from one room to another allowing you to do other things. On the other hand, the crib, if it is a 3-in-1, you not only have purchased sleeping quarters for your child for early months, when it converts to a full size bed you'll have accomplished something that will last for a longer period of time.

    since then he nolonger call me or text me i have been calling
    texting begging him to forgive me though i knew he was the person
    that was wrong but he never listen he wanted to hurt me the
    more on christmas day he brought a girl to my house when
    knocked i saw him i was about to huge him but i saw a girl
    with him then he told me that he is here to tell me that if
    i think i am the only girl in the wrold i failed just right
    then they started kissing i mean they where very deep i couldn't
    standing it i short the doorand i wanted to kill myself but my
    mum caught me ever since then i have been trying to get him i
    contact agalospell@gmail.com dobolotemple@gmail.com,
    houseoflevitesspell@gmail.com the three of them they all scammed me
    then i lost my faith maybe we are not melt together but each time i
    remember our promises and our 3 kids we both decided to have it's
    drive me crazy. two weeks ago i saw a comment post by brown how her
    husband wanted to divorce her but sunlightsaved her marriage i thought
    it's was a joke last three days on facebook i saw mata durga goddess devi
    under wall i saw sunlight comment then i decided to contact her behold at
    once i believed because she was a goddess and not a man so i explained
    everything that had happen she just told me not to worry after about
    5hrs she told me it is done my ex is coming back now i thought it's was
    a joke but the reason i never doubted those three fake spellcaster i contacted
