Bassinets are one of those controversial nursery products because they have such a short lifespan, about six months at the maximum. A waste!, say many parents. But having used one, with two babies, I kinda love them. They're easy to move around the house and are often placed right next to the parental bed for convenient nursing and middle-of-the-night soothings. I just happened to be looking at the bassinet above and noticed they are for sale - or rent!
