I have to admit the moment I found out I was pregnant with Shelby I could not wait to shop and get her nursery section set up. We used a bassinet with both girls and loved how easy they were to use. Of course putting together Sam’s was a pain. I had a million screws to use and somehow after a few weeks of using it it became loose and not sturdy so we had to switch her straight to a crib.
What I loved about using a bassinet was that the baby was in a smaller space and to me seemed to feel more secure kinda like when they were in the womb, just like swaddling.
When I saw the Kolcraft Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper I thought it would be great for baby #3. I do really like the Incline Sleeper, but we will have to see how the baby likes it. The concept of it is great though.
The Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet and Incline Sleeper is the only traditional bassinet that offers an option to help babies sleep when they suffer from colic or congestion. Developed in conjunction with medical professionals, the inclined surface helps alleviate congestion to give both mom and babies a peaceful sleep. The incline sleeper attachment is easily removable when your baby no longer needs it. This bassinet easily converts to a rocking bassinet and it includes a Light Vibes electronic unit with classical music, nature sounds, vibrations, and soft-glow check light.

I was so surprised at how easy the bassinet was to put together. No screws at all! The instructions were very easy to follow and I had it put together in about 15 minutes (max). I also love the large basket underneath. I knew right away it would be the perfect place for our blankets and swaddle blankets.
I like the option to make the bassinet a rocker, and the wheels lock in place, the wheels also make it easy to roll the bassinet to another room (if needed).
Over all this is a great bassinet and is priced at $139.99. You can purchase it at many retail stores including Babies R Us.
