Hi, my husband and I have bought a second hand Boori Country bassinette and have disposed of the mattress that came with it. We rang Boori and they didn't have a new mattress for us to purchase. We have since learned at our first aid skills course yesterday that bassinettes have not been formally tested for safety in Australia, which is a shock and should be changed. Anyway, due to the small size of our bedroom and to make a newborn feel safe in a smaller space we still hope to use the bassinette until bub (due in a few weeks) starts to roll. Our question is, can you please recommend a specific branded mattress to buy? We bought a Kangaroo-branded one from Baby Bunting -the only one BB sells for Boori bassinettes. The problem is, while it fits snugly, it's not firm and is only 48mm thick. Is there a specific branded mattress you could please recommend? We've thought of getting a custom-made one from Organature (made with natural fibres) but it is unlikely to be made in time for bub's arrival and we can't believe there wouldn't already be one that's available to buy that meets Australian and Red Nose's safety standards for mattresses. Also, I've just found that the distance between the top of the Kangaroo-branded mattress and the top of the Boori Country bassinette is only 227mm. May I please ask the reason why the distance should be at least 300mm for safety reasons when bassinettes are usually only used for newborns?
Hi. My 3 month old will soon be outgrowing his bassinet. I am looking to move his cot i to our room for him to sleep in when this happens. I was wondering if getting bumpers for the cot is necessary to cover the gaps in the sides of the cot? Also is there any different safe sleeping recommendations for sleeping in a cot apposed to a bassinet? My baby currently sleeps in a love to dream sleeping bag with both arms free. Thank you
We have a 5 day old new born son. My question is can we use a vibrating bassinet for him to sleep in over night, he seems to love the vibration and it soothes him. Imjus not sure if its okay to use all night long, i have tested the clip on vibration component over a period of about 6-8 hours and it doesnt heat up.
