Compact design but a few flaws
We’ve had a number of Boori products over the years and they’re well made. We bought the Urbane bassinet for our third. It’s a compact design and easy to stick in corner without taking up acres of space. However, two things bug me. I find the crumby plastic castor wheels aren’t good enough to move the bassinet smoothly, especially on carpet. But more importantly, we haven’t loved the lack of support of mattress and baby when baby is lying in it. The design is such that the mesh “hangs” down from the four sides and supports the mattress (with a ...plastic grate for some stability) but because there’s not rigid support holding up the mesh from underneath, the mattress sags in the middle. It means the baby is forced into a bit of a banana position which I don’t think has been good for our little one’s upset tummy at points. I stuck some lengths of timber underneath the grate which helped a bit, but it’s still not ideal. Obviously this is a bit of a personal experience for us and our baby but think it’s important to share for the benefit of others.
Purchased in January 2019.
Lovely little bassinet
Got this as a set from Baby Buntings and used it for almost 6 months. It was perfect to keep close to our bed and wheel around the house as necessary. Our baby was born in the summer so the breatheable sides were a great feature. Keeps its value as great quality. Would highly recommend.
Excellent bassinet for newborn
We have shared this bassinet for 6 newborns over 6 years. They have stayed in the bassinet for 6-7 months. The bassinet is spacious for a newborn and still big enough for a 7 month old. The breathable sides are excellent for when baby sleeps close to the sides without worrying about ventilation. Great design and wheels are very handy. My only concern was that once baby was 6 months they picked at the Velcro on the side of the bassinet. It’s never broke but I don’t think it would last long if it continued. This told me baby was too big and needed a cot.
Perfect for our little one
This bassinet has gotten plenty of use. It's got a soft mattress and the fabric holding the mattress up is quality material. We rolled it up and down in and out of the bedroom for day and night sleeping and our baby slept very well in it. It's very convenient and we got a lot of comments on how nice it was. Highly recommended in terms of practicality, cost and quality.
Best thing we bought for our baby
I can say it was really the best thing we bought for our baby. it's safe and steady. Practical and easy to move between rooms in our apartment. easy to assemble and not a bulky thing. you can use it for rocking your baby to put her/him to sleep in a few minutes.
We love our Boori Urbane Bassinet, we used this for both our children and due to it's generous size they were able to use it until 6+ months. The mesh lining is great for airflow and the firm mattress is very comfortable. It is very handy being on wheels as you can easily move it from room to room.
Ideal for newborn
Great buy, can move from room to room with ease. I worried at first that it would be quite flimsy with the Velcro and sticks but actually really strong and well designed. Breathable mesh. Baby seems comfy and happy. Mesh is easily cleaned with damp cloth. Definitely will use again.
Great Bassinet for peace of mind
We originally purchased a Cot only with a bassinet as a maybe.
Since we spent time in the hospital with mobile bassinets only - we saw the value in this item.
Mind you the RRP is quite pricey and clearly does not last a baby long, we moved our bubba out after 3months.
We absolutely loved the wheel options on the bassinet, had great airflow. Also for our second child the option of changing out the mattress quite easily / at a cheap cost.
Highly recommend! Cant fault anything on this, super sturdy
I love our boori urbane bassinet, it is a generous size, so can accommodate a larger baby. It comes with a firm comfortable mattress; the mesh basket also gives piece of mind as it is breathable. The mesh basket is also perfect as it has just enough give for a gentle rock when settling baby. We are using ours for the second time and have found it convenient, easy to clean, and easy to put together. It also looks great as it's a very simple design without all the frills that some bassinets have.
Perfect for the early months
We are about to use this bassinet for the second time and it is still in great condition (even my sister has used it for her son). Assembly is similar to other flat pack furniture, but once it is up it is light and easy to move around, doesn't take up much room and looks great. Mattress is firm and the mesh sides are great to allow baby to breathe. Wheels and brakes work fine within the home. I have it in white.
Simple & Safe
The Boori Urbane Bassinet was our choice as it met all the requirements of the Choice safety test. Plus it's simple and elegant.
The height is perfect for beside a bed, making night feeds much easier! Plenty of airflow through the mesh fabric which is easy to remove and clean. The wheels seem a bit flimsy but all bassinets seem to have similar wheels.
Easy assembly, baby is comfortable & safe
Hard to find bassinet sheets.
Safe, comfortable and convenient
Convenient as you can wheel it around the house, easy to move, easy to assemble, mesh sides to ensure maximum airflow for bub while sleeping, perfect height so you can put it right next to your bed and see bub clearly while lying down, sturdy and safe. Absolutely no complaints!
Inexpensive, safe, sturdy, stylish, comfortable and convenient
Questions & Answers
Hi I’m trying to wash the basinet but unable to remove the mesh from the staples? How do I do this?
Why are there valcro strips on bassinet. I just got one second hand and noticed the valcro is coming away from wood. Do you need to valcro the ends
