I finally ordered the bassinet (thanks to my awesome mother); as she would say, it's the "Mac Daddy" of bassinets and it's not too high on price. Some of them were $130 or more! The one I found was $99, and had things that my mom wanted, like vibrations, mattress/pad, and a fitted sheet. And it seemed pretty sturdy--need sturdy with a toddler! Sturdy with locking wheels!
We bought this one from Target: Simmons Kids Slumber Time Elite Bassinet - Expresso Latte.
It's in a neutral colors, which is good, but I wasn't happy with Target's color choices of fitted bassinet sheets: Blue, Pink, and White. I was hoping for a pop of color, like yellow or green, but ended up getting white. I'm just so tired of blue for a boy! That's why I'm determined to not get blue or sports themed bedding for Vincent when we move onto a crib.
I didn't want to frilly, lacey, or blue, like some of the bassinets I had come across either. Not entirely happy about the skirt, but it hides the rocking mechanics, so less pinching of toddler fingers, yeah?
Although I was thinking about getting this one, instead. I had seen in it the store and it seems sturdy to me; I got to play around with it a little bit: Fisher-Price My Little Snugamonkey Special Edition Deluxe Rock n Play Sleeper.
It has vibrations, gently rocks, was $54, is more apartment friendly (compact, light, fold-able), and had a good customer rating, but I wanted something that wasn't just an incline. I wanted the option of doing incline and flat. That and I just wasn't sure how safe, I guess, it was. I'm sure it's good for naps, but I dunno. I had reservations about it. Plus I have a swing and a bouncer which are inclined, and I love them both.
That, and the bassinet we bought seems more toddler safe, I suppose. Of course, I'll still have to supervise, that's a duh given.
But the bassinet oughta be here in a week.
