What is a baby bassinet?
A baby bassinet is designed to be used as a baby’s bed from birth up until they are around four months old.
There are a lot of different bassinets out there which can make it hard to know which one to opt for to be a part of your baby furniture. A number of things need to be taken into account before you choose one that is right for your baby.
