After your first child is born you really begin to get a sense for the future, and what you’d like to pass on to the next generation. Few things are invested with more memory and emotion than baby’s first bed, especially if that bed is used again for the next sibling. I purchased an inexpensive though reasonably sturdy bassinet for my first child, which is now an ugly mess after all my kids went through it. The fabric is frayed, the metal scratched and dented from storage and reassembly, the mat stained from the usual post digestive events. Needless to say it will not be passed on (though it is lovingly stored).
I do very much regret not buying something durable and high quality.
Here is the Infant Carter’s Classic Comfort Wood Bassinet
It is sturdy, beautiful and well made, and it’s a Carter. It is what I wished I had spent my money on. The bassinet includes a soothing noise maker (womb sounds), and good quality fabric.
The Kicker? (As in I could kick myself I never bought it) It’s less than $200.00, I spent the same money for much lower quality.
The reviews are very favorable: 5 stars out of 9 reviews.
