Can I use this from birth?

Yes, the Easy Sleep Portable Bassinet is safe to use for sleep from birth.

How much does the bassinet weigh?

The bassinet weighs 2.2kg, making it lightweight enough for portability, and sturdy enough for sleep.

Will the bassinet support my baby’s size or weight?

An infant up to 9kg can safely use the Easy Sleep Portable Bassinet. The bassinet is 80cm long and 49cm wide.

Is this bassinet a travel bassinet?

Yes, it is designed to be a travel bassinet, for newborn or infant sleeping on the go. You may already have a traditional bassinet at home for your baby, but the Easy Sleep Portable Bassinet can also be used from room-to-room around the house as a safe, clean space to place baby down in for tummy time, play or sleep. A reminder to never lift or carry the bassinet when the baby is in it.

Does the bassinet meet safety standards for sleep?

In Australia, there are no specific safety standards for bassinets. However, we have designed the Easy Sleep Portable Bassinet with safety features in mind, as guided by Red Nose Australia and INPAA. The breathable mesh body on all sides provide good ventilation, the high sides are made with a sturdy steel frame measuring 30cm, and the thin, firm mattress is designed to ensure the bassinet is safe for infant sleeping.

What is the mattress made of?

The top and bottom lining of the mattress is 100% Cotton, and the inner core is a polyester foam.

Does the mattress come with a separate sheet or cover?

The mattress outer is cotton, and safe for sleeping on as is. If you’d like to add an additional cover or sheet (not included) our Organic Fitted Sheets can be used over the mattress. Most common bassinet-sized sheets will also fit the mattress. Do not use sheets that fit too tightly and bunch the mattress, or too loosely that they can become untucked and cause a suffocation hazard. Always place your baby to sleep on their back, and do not place any loose bedding or toys in the bassinet with baby for sleep.

Can I wash the mattress?

Yes, we advise a gentle hand wash in lukewarm water. Line dry only. Do not tumble dry, iron or dryclean the mattress.

Do I have to remove the mattress to fold and store it?

No, the bassinet will fold with the mattress inside.

Does the bassinet come with a mosquito net?

Yes. The mosquito net is detachable, and can be used during sleep as long as its attached correctly. See our How To video for further instruction.

Does it come with a stand?

No, at this stage the bassinet does not come with a stand. For safe use, always place the bassinet on a low, flat, smooth and hard surface such as the ground, during sleep. Ensure the safety lock on each side is in place before placing baby in bassinet.

What age can I use this up to?

We advise you discontinue use once your baby shows signs of rolling, or is 9kg (whichever comes first). Please do not use for sleep, for a baby who is rolling. Once your baby is rolling, you can still safely use the bassinet as a play space during awake time.

Can I use it for overnight sleeps as well as day naps?

Yes. The safety features of the bassinet make it safe to use for both naps during the day, and overnight sleep.

Can I take this on a plane?

Yes, the bassinet folds down to fit into a backpack (include) and therefore can be taken on board as carry on luggage. The bassinet will fit into the overhead locker.

Does the backpack have other storage pockets?

There are 3 large outer pockets on the backpack for handy storage. These pockets do not fasten close, but are open with an elasticated finish.

Does it come in other colours?

At this stage, the bassinet comes in Ecru only.

Can I use this as a co-sleeper?

We do not suggest this is used as a co-sleeper in your bed.
