|Baby bassinets are portable cradles. The difference being that a cradle is bigger and is usually left in one place. A bassinet is smaller and portable.
Most come as complete sets including the bumpers, sheet and mattress. Occasionally even a baby blanket is included to match the theme of the set.
The average price is anywhere between $60 and $120 including the accessories. However, you can find them anywhere between $40 to $300.
When looking for a bassinet find one with a sturdy bottom that will support the mattress. Also check to see that the spindles are no wider than three and a half inches apart for safety.
They are used for the first 3 to 4 months. After that the baby will usually have outgrown the bassinet.
