  • Good sturdy construction. Like the rocking ability, helps to put baby to sleep. The vibration is also a great feature. Only issue i have is the mattress pad even with the sheets are cold. Apr 24, 2020

  • I can’t recommend this bassinet enough!!! I love that you can sway the bassinet to help soothe baby. Also love the vibrate and sounds options. So happy with this purchase. Apr 24, 2020

  • Pros: white noise/ music & vibrating feature help soothe baby to sleep, sleek. Cons: mattress is hard and uncomfortable to sleep on, light doesn’t seem to get baby’s attention to help with soothing. Apr 06, 2020

  • The vibrating feature is nice. We have a separate sound machine so we don’t use the sounds much. The swaying tends to be rough when baby moves so I have it strapped to limit motion. Decent bassinet Apr 04, 2020

  • This was great for the first couple of months that my baby needed it. Good price, really liked the noises and the starry lights, my baby liked staring at them. Mar 28, 2020

  • Great for first 3-5 months. Loved the vibration, the nightlight, and ability to gently rock/glide. Perfect t for beside the bed. Mar 15, 2020

  • Great and conveniently connected to smart phone thru the app Mar 11, 2020

  • Super cute, and I really liked the nightlight and vibration features, as did my little one. Not too large for a bedroom. Jan 08, 2020

  • Love, love, love this bassinet. Our babe loved sleeping in this. I really liked the ability to rock it as needed, it has a vibrate feature, and the night light allowed me to see during night feedings. Jan 04, 2020

  • My son did not seem to like this he would not sleep in it for more than 10 minutes. Maybe because of the movement, he didn't feel secure? Jan 03, 2020

  • We don't really use this ever. The padding is so thin. The vibration scares baby and it doesn't move on it's own. The lights are a good feature. Should have spent a little more and got a different one Jan 02, 2020

  • This Is a nice bassinet however, the vibration didn’t work like I had hoped and every time my baby moved the bassinet would move as well sometimes disturbing him at times. Jan 01, 2020

  • Used this for my niece and I always felt she was safe and she slept so wonderfully in this bassinet! Love the music and light options. Would recommend! Dec 04, 2019

  • Pro: simple, cute, has lights and sounds Con: mattress, toy mobile not appealing, basket moves with infant movements Which startles and wakes my baby I fixed cons To make it work for us Nov 17, 2019

  • My 2nd son will sleep in this for the night. Love all the bells and whistles that come with it. However, my first son that had reflux didn't like it so much. Sep 10, 2019

  • I found the vibrate function useful. You can also rock the baby or secure the straps so that it is stationary. I do wish it was more portable but the weight does make it vary stable and sturdy. Sep 02, 2019

  • Bought this for my second child and loved it, however, wish I would have bought one with multiple uses because I only used it for the first couple weeks. Aug 09, 2019

  • Great bassinet! My little one like the vibration good self soother for bed time and the jungle white noise is good even my husband enjoys it lol Jul 26, 2019

  • Ticked all the boxes for us. Smaller footprint than pack n play and it kept baby safe and close. Never used the music box and the mesh "shelf". Biggest con is that you can't buy extra bedsheets Jul 26, 2019

  • Only useful for newborns once the baby starts moving it’s a little flimsy. Space efficient and very useful for co-sleeping. It’s a hit or miss Jul 09, 2019

  • Great size and love the accessories music/lights/vibrator. Baby girl sleeps well in it. Not a fan of the mattress but the dockAtot fits perfect in it. Jun 27, 2019

  • Bought this because my son slept so much better in the rock and play than his bassinet. I liked the vibration feature and that I could rock it, but ultimately he slept about the same as a bassinet. Jun 05, 2019

  • It’s at a great height and I love the light feature, vibration and sound machine. Only negative is that it is not comfortable at all, we had to add padding so my baby would sleep in it. Jun 03, 2019

  • Used this for my firstborn. Loved that it was breathable and through the night I just had to look over and I could see through the mesh. Sturdy and comfortable. Love the portable night light!! May 16, 2019

  • Initially our little one did not like the rocking movement which even occurs when secured tightly. As she lost her startle reflex she has enjoyed sleeping in this more. Apr 29, 2019

  • GREAT bassinet! I love the vibrate feature. Apr 23, 2019

  • Only thing my son would sleep in for the first 3 months! We loved the vibration and the noise machine in it. Wish it rocked on its own vs manual though. Sound machine/vibration can detach too Apr 02, 2019

  • I loved this basinet and the fact that it had a night light on the sound made it so easy to change my baby in the middle of the night without waking him too much Jan 29, 2019

  • My LO hates this. Never liked it, could be due to the lack of an incline but either way, he will not sleep in it. Too late to return or I would! Nov 28, 2018

  • Love this. Our boy is a great sleeper in thjs Nov 12, 2018

  • Loved the sound system but for some reason my little one just didnt seem to like it. She could not rest or sleep in this comfortably. There is no cushion on padding and baby rolls easily. Oct 23, 2018

  • Didnt sleep in this once. Baby hated it and slept in her crib from day 1! Wish I'd gotten a dock a tot instead so she would have somewhere to nap downstairs! Sep 13, 2018

    The padding is thin and the vinyl covering (although waterproof) makes it noisy. It was fine for the first couple weeks and our newborn quickly grew to hate it. Jun 27, 2018

  • When baby would move, the bassinet would shake and the motion would wake him up startled. It is lower than the bed and hard to reach baby in the middle of the night. shelf is flimsy.Go with the halo! Mar 16, 2018

    I loved my bassinet! I wish my baby never outgrew it, it's perfect for a breast feeding mom. Super easy to start a bed time routine with the lights and lullabies it comes with! Feb 28, 2018

    My baby didn't care for the vibration or movement but it was inexpensive and cute for a bassinet so it worked! Feb 19, 2018

  • Easy to put together, has a few settings for sound and vibration Easy to clean, it does take up some space Jan 15, 2018

  • FAVORITE BASSINET! Dec 20, 2017

  • Pro: we got good use out of this for about 2 months and then my daughter got too big, but we liked it while we were using it. Con: I wish it folded up easier so it could’ve traveled with us Dec 13, 2017

  • This product was easy to put together even mom's can do it ! It has a little storage area on the bottom for things like diapers and wipes so you don't have to get up at night. Nov 04, 2017

  • The motions were anything but smoothing for my little guy. The rocking was jarring and made him unhappy. Nov 03, 2017

  • I love that this bassinet has mesh all the way around so I can see my baby and there isn't anything he could suffocate on if he got close to the side. The underneath storage ledge was great for diaper Oct 22, 2017

  • Love the sound and light features. Like that the transition to crib should be easy Oct 18, 2017

    • Kerri C.

    Got this as a gift. It is very heavy, which will be great for ensuring it is stable once baby is inside. I love all of the options for lights, music, gentle vibrations! Jul 06, 2017

  • Baby 's been sleeping in it for 2 months. Gliding motion is very smooth and effortless. The higher weight capacity extends the time we can use it. The removable music box is a really nice feature. May 01, 2017

  • Baby has not arrived yet but I love that it's easy to put together, has mesh all around. Pad fits snug and the sheet it comes with is machine washable. Has lights and music. Good buy! Apr 12, 2017
