Bye Bye Bassinet

Posted on: December 21, 2009

Growing, growing, growing this baby keeps on growing! And the time has come to say au revoir to his bassinet.  It was good to him, and lasted him for over three months, but he has now outgrown it.  And how do I know that he’s outgrown it? Well, when the tip of his head and the tips of his toes are just touching at either end, I think that’s a pretty clear sign.  Also, at times his arms startle him in his sleep: I mean they flail and move about, but it has gotten to the point that when he does these jerky movements they hit the side of the bassinet and wake him up! And we don’t want a sleeping Niko woken up just because his arms don’t have room to flail about as they wish!

So the bassinet must go, and has actually officially been replaced (for now) by his Pack’n’Play.  This little device has a built in bassinet, that is raised up, so it is still pretty easy to pick him up and lie him down.  At some point – sooner than later – we want to move Niko into his crib.  But before we do that, buying a crib mattress is sort of imperative! Also, we still like him sleeping right next to our bed, so we can keep a close eye on him, and also for the convenience of those middle of the night feedings, which yes, are still happening.  But, Niko is growing steadily and is a healthy young boy, so all in all, I don’t really mind those middle of the night feedings, and he has actually become such an efficient feeder that they take way less time than they did when we first brought him home from the hospital.
