Checking the weight limit of the bassinet is very important because this thing defines how long you can use it. If you have a bassinet that has a lower weight limit means you can’t use it for too long because your baby grows very soon.

For example, age limit: manufacture of the bassinets recommended to use it for only up to 6 months. Whereas pre arrive baby grows very slowly, so they never cross the weight limit but they cross the age limit.

Now, you are puzzled. Lol, WelI, I recommend to read first this article.: “At What Age Should a Baby Stop Sleeping In a Bassinet?” before buying a bassinet.

So, let’s have a look at all the bassinet in the market.
