Features

Mobility

Moving this bassinet from one room to another is as easy as it gets. It’s only 14 pounds, so you can pick it up and take it where you need it. It’s got built-in wheels for easier transportation. The wheels have a rotating base, and you can raise them up and quickly transform the bassinet into a rocking cradle.

It’s a surprisingly practical solution for such an affordable product. All the features are easy to use and don’t require any extra effort, but keep in mind that the bassinet is not that sturdy, so you have to be careful when transporting it.

The Assembly

Putting this cradle together will require a couple of basic tools and about 20 minutes of your time. It arrives in parts with all the screws included. The user manual has detailed step-by-step assembly instructions that can be completed by one person.

Large Storage Basket

Again, we have an affordable product with a large storage basket, larger than what many other, more expensive models have to offer. The storage basket is large enough to hold all your baby’s essentials including extra clothes, a large diaper bag, formulas, and so on. All of the sides are made out of a mesh material, so you can see what’s inside at all times. The basket is easy to reach from all sides.

Large Protective Canopy

Now, this feature is something both you and your baby will enjoy. The bassinet comes with a large mesh see-through canopy designed to protect your little one from all insects and those annoying mosquitos. It can get in the way sometimes, but you can detach some parts of the net and leave it hanging during the day.

The Mattress

Well, keep in mind that this is one of the cheapest bassinets you can buy today. As such, the materials and the mattress are a bit slim. You will have to put something under the mattress to make it a bit more comfortable. The mattress is removable and easy to wash.

Multiple Color Choices

There’s no question about the cuteness of this bassinet, but there are a couple of color options you can choose from. Depending on the sex of your child, you can choose from blue, coral, rose quartz, pink, cream, yellow & white, and a couple of others. All of the colors will look great in any room. It’s just too cute to turn down!

Rock Your Little One to Sleep

The ability to transform the bassinet into a rocking cradle is a feature found in much more expensive models, but this one has it too. You just have to rotate the wheels upwards, and the rocking cradle is ready to go. The gentle rocking motion is just what your baby needs to fall asleep in no time.

What’s wrong with the product?

-The bed of the bassinet moves around

It seems that the mattress is a bit smaller than the bassinet itself, so it sometimes moves around the base. You will have to straighten it up every time before placing the baby inside.

-The net can get in the way sometimes

The protective net is great, and it helps your baby get a good night sleep, but it can also get in the way. You will have to detach it to be able to get your baby in and out during the day.

-Not very sturdy

It does say that the bassinet can hold a child up to 20 lbs, but we’re not sure about that. It feels like it’s not sturdy enough to hold children heavier than 12-14 lbs.

Conclusion

The dream on me lacy portable 2-in-1 bassinet is a great choice for all future parents expecting a new member of the family. It is easy to assemble, it can transform into a rocking crib in seconds, and the protective net keeps your newborn safe from all insects and mosquitos.

It is one of the most popular bassinets on the market because it’s very affordable and yet it has the features of much more expensive models. In fact, this is one of the cutest models we’ve seen so far, and it comes in many different colors. It’s a safe and cheap way to keep your baby out of harm’s way.
