During those first few months with your new baby, having a bassinet is a great way to keep your newborn close to you and safe during those first six months or so. A bassinet is an alternative to a crib that many parents choose to get for reasons as various as space, design, and lifestyle choices. In this blog, brought to you by Il Tutto International Pty Ltd, we cover both a comparison between cribs and bassinets, as well as provide you a guide for choosing a bassinet that suits your needs and priorities.

Bassinets Vs. Cribs
What are the advantages of buying a bassinet instead of a crib?
- Ease of co-sleeping — Due to the smaller size of a bassinet, as well as, as in the case of the Tutti Bambini CoZee Bassinet, designs specifically with co-sleeping in mind, a bassinet is a snug, safe option for co-sleeping and easier nighttime nursing.
- Size — As we mentioned before, bassinets are smaller than most cribs, and are therefore well-suited for smaller spaces.
- Shallower — It is easier to lay a baby down in a bassinet than in a crib, as they are usually shallower — meaning less uncomfortable bending.
- Cozier — Bassinets give babies the ability to stay closer to their mother, making them more comfortable and safe feeling.
- Portability — Lastly, bassinets are much more portable than cribs, and can be carried around your home wherever you need them to be.
In terms of disadvantages for bassinets compared to cribs, there are some things you should consider. The main thing to be aware of is that babies grow fast. A bassinet may have weight and size restrictions that make them no longer useful after six months or so.
