There have been many arguments on why to use a bassinet over why not using a crib right off the bat. Here are a few reasons to begin using a bassinet for your baby’s first few months of life.

First of all, a bassinet allows a baby to be in the same room as you. Whether it be the bedroom or the living room, the small size and portability of the bassinet sheet means that the baby can be where you are.

In addition, that means the middle of the night feedings and changings are easier as the baby is closer to the caregiver. It gives you peace of mind when the baby is in the same room as you.

Second, a bassinet is less expensive than a crib. If the baby is unexpected and you are still saving for a crib, this is one way to go. Or if you need a place for a newborn to sleep at the grandparent’s house, this is an inexpensive fix. A bassinet being portable is a big advantage in so many situations.

A bassinet sheet is smaller in size and is snugger to a baby. The baby has been in a small space for nine months and doesn’t need to be overwhelmed with a big crib right off the bat.

It also is easier to put the baby in a bassinet, especially for a new mom who just gave birth, as a bassinet is usually as waist height – with no big rail to put up and down. This is especially helpful to moms who had C-sections. A bassinet sheet is great for co-sleeping and makes late night feedings and diaper changes much easier.
