Chicco Travel Bassinet Review
The Chicco Lullago Portable Bassinet is a great option for mamas looking for a travel crib that is a lightweight, breathable bassinet with a compact fold, that will let your babe sleep wherever your travels take you!
The Lullago is a travel bassinet that's good for your babe up to 20 lbs, and is meant to be used for little ones from 0-6 months. The bassinet is going to give your little one the security and comfort that they need when they're still learning to sleep on their own, but isn't so tight that you need to worry about airflow. The bassinet also features mesh windows and a firm mattress to make sure your little one sleeps safely and comfortably.
It also has a few features that are going to make mamas happy too: all the fabric can be zipped off and thrown in the washing machine. And for any mama that has had to clean up a mess in a travel crib, you know that this is a life saver! The anti-slip feet make sure that the crib isn't going to slip or slide, and keep it in place while your little one sleeps. Since this bassinet is stationary, you won't need to worry about it swaying or swinging during the night.
The assembly of this bassinet can be seen as both a blessing and a curse. In my opinion, it's a little labor intensive for a travel crib. I'm not sure if every mama would want to take the time to snap it open and assemble/disassemble the crib, then put the legs in and pack it away. However, because all the pieces are removable, they fold up really great and fit into the travel bag that comes with the Lullago. But a huge con is that the travel bag doesn't have a zipper, so it would make it difficult to travel with if you're flying.
The Chicco Lullago isn't height adjustable, is three feet high, and the crib itself is pretty deep. This can be a little tough if you're going to be bending over to lay babe down or pick them up. But if you're choosing to use this portable crib in a co-sleeping situation next to your bed, it might be a great height for you!
This mama's opinion? One of the best features is the flat, firm mattress, considering a lot of bassinets have a slight incline. The assembly can be a deal breaker considering there are a lot of bassinets out there that have much simpler/quicker folds. But I LOVE that the entire thing can be unzipped and is machine washable!
Overall, the Chicco Lullago Portable Bassinet is a great option for mamas who are looking for a lightweight crib, a compact disassembly, and a deep, comfortable bed for their little one. Considering the price (just under $100), this is going to give you a lot of bang for your buck, because babe can use this until 20 lbs!
