I think it's time for a new bassinet! Part 1


This is the bassinet that has been in use for the past 5 years in my family. So far it has been the starter bed for my sister's 3 children and my son. Before that, it belonged to my sister's co worker and was the starter bed for his 2 children. I think it definitely served it's purpose!

It was very clear to me that it was time to send this one to good will and find a new one! The poor thing has been through a lot and has been stored at many different houses in between each of the kids. As you can see the the 2nd and 3rd pictures it was wearing down and actually started slanting to one end. (not just at the top either, the bed was actually slanted!)
I'm sad to see it go, but I know it's time for a new one! I loved that this one had storage underneath and that the bed just lifted off the base. I never actually ever used this feature, but it was nice to have the option if the baby was sleeping and I needed to leave the room.

Wanna see what I got as it's replacement? It was a super good deal and I had a really fun time putting it together! ;)
Part 2 will be posted on Monday!
