kolcraft preferred position bassinet and incline sleeper - review

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 2:03 AM
So as some many have seen on Twitter tonight I am having major baby fever lately. DH would kill me if I even utter the words "lets have another baby" or anything really even close to that. He has no idea though, we will get pregnant soon and luckily I'm ready for a new baby in the house.

Kolcraft sent me their brand spankin' new Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper recently and I was so excited when it arrived. I learned of this beauty earlier this year and I could not wait to get my paws on it.
With Kendall she has really bad reflux, throwing up every 2.5 seconds, I swear. It was horrible. We had to sleep with her on our chest at night to keep her comfortable, put pillows under neath her crib comforter so she would be propped up. We tried so much and she was always in pain.

If we had the Preferred Position Bassinet our lives could have been a little easier. Too bad Kolcraft just released it exclusively to Babies R Us this month.

So what makes this bassinet different then others? Besides having the Kolcraft name on it, so you know it's amazing of course. This is the only traditional bassinet that offers an option to help babies sleep when they suffer from colic or congestion. When your baby no longer needs it the incline sleeper attachment is easily removable. You can use the bassinet up until about 15 pounds (or 3 months) of course for safety reasons.
If baby is having trouble falling asleep and you want to give your arms a rest then this bassinet is great because it converts into a rocking bassinet. Which I figure will start to kill your arm after a while but I think it's a great feature to have on a bassinet.

It only took me about 20 minutes to put this thing together which is amazing because of all the pieces that came in the box.

Other mentionable goodies is that there is a huge basket underneath to store diapers, wipes, lotion, whatever you may need on hand without having to run to the nursery. A cute mobile with 3 little bears complete the adjustable 3 position canopy.

I have to say though, my most favoritest (yes that's a word) feature is the soft-glow light! You don't have to turn on your bed side light and wake up baby while also blinding yourself anymore to check on baby. It's only a push of a button away on the Light Vibes electronic unit which also includes 10 classical songs and lullabies, 4 nature sounds, and 3 vocal recordings with volume control!!
Oh oh oh and how can I forget there is a vibration mode also! Kendall loved having vibration turned on her bouncer, it instantly put her to sleep, so a bassinet with vibrations is amazing to me!

I am in loves with this bassinet and cannot wait to fully use it next year when we have a new baby in the house!!

Like I said, you can buy the Kolcraft Preferred Position 2-in-1 Bassinet and Incline Sleeper at Babies-R-Us for just $139.99 and FREE SHIPPING!
