Bassinet weight – Best lightweight bassinets

One of the most important features to consider of a bassinet is its weight. In general, bassinets are thought to be easily portable so bassinet weight is an important factor.

If you are going to move very much the bassinet around the house or if you are going to travel with it, it is important to have a lightweight bassinet.

More lightweight bassinets

There are two kind of lightweight bassinets.

The first ones are very lightweight, usually between 3 and 6 lbs. They are intended to be used when parents travel a lot or when they visit their friends or family very often.

On the other hand, parents must use this kind of bassinet if they want to sleep with their baby between them in the same bed. Sleeping with a baby in the same bed is dangerous, so parents must always use a bassinet to avoid SIDS.

In the following chart there are the three more lightweight co-sleepers:

The second kind of lightweight bassinets are like little cribs but, as they are lightweight, parents can move them from room to room easier than a crib. That’s why, with this kind of bassinets babies can sleep comfortable in all the rooms of the house.
