When Andrew and Ethan were newborns, they slept beside our bed in a bassinet. This particular bassinet had some major design flaws, mainly, the wheels stuck out quite far and had sharp edges that I was constantly cutting my feet on. After Ethan grew too big, I gave it away.
When Emma was a newborn, I borrowed Judy's bassinet, which worked out well, but now I am in Indiana, and in need of another bed for Sophie when she joins us. I looked at bassinets, but frankly, all but one I found are just too frilly for my taste. I like things to be girly, but not too frilly. I did find one I like, but then I saw these cradles, and I wondered if I should get one of them instead. I figured when I am done with it I can let Emma and Sophie use it as a bed for their dolls.
Have any of you used a cradle? How did you like it? These both have locking mechanisms to stop the cradle from rocking if you don't want the motion. I am wondering if the top one could get pushed over easily. I would probably leave the wheels off the bottom one, if that is the one we went with. What do you think?
