If you have a trip to grandma’s house coming up, this quick folding bassinet is our recommendation. The MiClassic Bassinet is both affordable and easy to set up—perfect for a grandparent or caregiver.
What We Liked
• All mesh sides. This allows for air flow, which we prefer over bassinets with solid sides or those draped with fabric. You can also see into the bassinet from a bed easier with mesh sides.
• Quick set up. We could set up and fold this bassinet in under a minute.
• Can rock or be stationary. Our testers loved the fact that base could be configured to rock the bassinet, which worked well.
• High weight limit. This bassinet works up to 33 lbs.—that means you can use it longer than the bassinet feature with most portable playpens, which are limited to just 15 lbs.
What Needs Work
• No lights, sounds or vibration. This is a simple bassinet that doesn’t have any bells or whistles.
• Large footprint. We measured this bassinet at 36″ long—yep, that’s three feet. And it is just shy of two feet in width. If you only have a small space next to your bed, this may not work.
