Kolcraft Cuddle'n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper Review #HGG

With baby #5 on the way, I’ve learned a lot in regards to what works for our family product wise and what doesn’t. For this baby I’m really trying to stick with tried and true for the most part; bringing me first to my love for bassinets.

My first son was probably the only one of my children to start off in a crib – and he was also the only one of my children who cried and cried at night. After a few weeks of struggling someone finally pointed out that he might be a bit overwhelmed in such a large space after 9 months tucked tightly in my womb. Well, that made enough sense to me, for me to try a different approach. Low and behold his first night in a bassinet he slept like an angel. Was it his sleeping area, was it not? I can’t be sure, but it was enough for me to make sure my kids always had a bassinet from that point forward.

The second issue I had with my kids was their preference to sleep with their head in more of an upright potion, followed by conflicting research as to whether allowing them to sleep in their swing and or carseat was actually safe for them. Since it’s been 5 years since the birth of the last, I figured there must be some upgrades in the market and I was right. The Kolcraft Cuddle'n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet &Incline Sleeper seemed to have everything I was looking for in a single bassinet this time around.

When the Cuddle‘n Care 2 in 1 bassinet arrived I was excited get it set up and have that reminder that a new little one is on her way starring me in the face every day. Looking slightly intimidating out of the box it was actually quite easy to set up. The bars were clearly labeled with letters (and not the silly sticker kind) and the storage basket just snapped on with ease.

Next I took to connecting the bassinet to the base, getting the incline sleeper and cover positioned correctly and finally the finishing touches – mobile, and hood.

The Kolcraft Cuddle ‘n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet is actually the only traditional bassinet that offers an option to help babies sleep on an incline. This was really the selling feature for me, knowing how helpful incline sleeping was for my other children, especially my youngest son who had GERD and spit-up often in his sleep. The incline sleepers cover can be removed and washed for those instances. And when baby no longer needs or prefers the incline it can be completely removed (with ease) leaving a traditional bassinet mattress in its place.


A great option for moms who would like the baby in there room for a few weeks or as a secondary sleep place in the nursery. This bassinet has wheels making it easily transferable from room to room. If you would rather keep it stationary, by removing the wheels the bassinet easily converts into a rocker.

The storage basket is great for diapers, spare receiving blankets, outfit changes and more. I like to keep all our nighttime necessities under there so there is no walking around like a zombie at 3am trying to remember where I left the wipes, or which drawer the clean onsies are in. I don’t know about you, but my brain barely works at half capacity come 1 am. ;)

Requiring 3 ‘AA’ batteries (not included) there is also a Light Vibes electronic unit which attaches to the foot of the bassinet. The Light Vibes unit has buttons to activate a soft glow light to check-on baby, classic music, nature sounds and even vibrations. For me this bassinet has just what I was looking for: incline positioning, storage, rocker, light, sound and soothing vibration all in a gender neutral pattern.

Buy It: A great gift for mom-to-be this holiday season the Kolcraft Cuddle'n Care 2-in-1 Bassinet & Incline Sleeper is available from Kolcraft in most Walmart stores and online at Amazon, Target, Buy Buy Baby and more, for the SRP of $159.99

Note:
Bassinet and Incline Sleeper are designed to be used by infants up to 3 months of age or up to a weight of 15 lbs, and should no longer be used by a child who can push himself/herself up on hands and knees.

This looks like a great product! I like that it converts from a bassinet to a sleeper so easily. Many similar products don't seem to have the right amount of cushion but this looks very plush. Like!!!

How perfect is this! I wish I had this when my daughter was an infant. The sound, the positioning, the vibrations - we all would have gotten more sleep. She was tiny and lost in that big crib, and let us know about it!
