I used the bassinet for the first six months as I had a prem and found it great and easy to use.
It clips in easy and attaches securely to my Beema Q (and Beema) pram with three clips (one on each side and one at the back) to ensure that it wont fall out or slide off the pram itself.
I used it also as a bassinet at night when we were out camping to save on packing space in the car as that can be a hassle when going bush for a week.
The side pockets are great for putting dummies, bibs, muslin wrap, purse, mail in to free up the undernea...th basket (on the pram) for the nappy bag. It has a tilt back rest so you can still sit your baby up in it if they have reflux issues (which mine did) and as the sides are quite high you don't need to worry about the risk of baby falling out of it. Once attached to the Beema Q pram both hoods can be folded out and make it a cocoon like environment so baby is safe from the weather and noise.
This bassinet is fit for the purpose it's intended but the main issue with this is that it wasn't really necessary. Baby was just as happy lying flat in the Beema Jogger right from 2 weeks old. This meant the additional hassle of taking this item in my hatchback and clipping it in every time wasn't really worth it.
I liked that baby would be facing me when in the jogger.
No side ventilation, I wouldn't use it as a bassinet for baby anywhere other than in the jogger. I ended up using it only twice, mainly because it wasn't necessary.
I liked the bassinette and used it for the first 3 - 4 months of my babies life. It was great to be able to see her as we walked along and she looked very snug in there in winter. I found it very easy to clip to the pram as it only had three clips, but it was a little difficult to fit both the pram and the bassinette in my small car. (I had to put the pram in the boot and the bassinette on the back seat!).
I got quite a lot of use from the bassinette separate to the pram as a portable bed when visiting. Excellent for Grandma's house!
...Although I used the bassinette a lot, I'm still not 100% convinced it was necessary as your baby can lay down flat in the pram anyway. It's probably good to buy if you've got some spare cash. My baby looked so cosy in it and looked nice and warm in the winter months. The best thing was that when you're using the bassinette your baby is facing you. Was a bit of a pain to carry the bassinette with me as well as the pram, especially in a small car.

I loved using this for my little girl! it was good even at 12 months when she was a little bigger because at night in winter if we were out she was able to lay flat and be cosi at the same time. I didnt really use it that many times though. I dont think i would buy a bassinett for a pram again as it was nice but not really worth it.
could see bubbie when she was little. When she was older i took it when i knew that we would be out late and it was warm and if you left the hood on the pram you can close the bassinett right up, to make it dark and cosi. Was easy to get on and off.
use in summer was not great because it was too hot and the air flow wasnt that great.
