With baby number two on the way, I feel more prepared this time than the last. I know what baby essentials make life easier and what products last. While I’m more prepared this time, our circumstances are different and some things are still new including our location in Frisco, Texas and our house design and layout. My two-story home is the house of my dreams but our first-floor master bedroom doesn’t necessarily fit perfectly with a newborn. My temporary solution is a bassinet in our room until the baby has good sleep patterns. It could be a few weeks or a few months but I wanted a practical solution that didn’t cost a small fortune. The ultimate solution is the Joovy Coo Portable Bassinet Playpen. It’s a portable bassinet, playpen, and rocker all in one that’s safe and stylish. Regardless if the baby uses the bassinet for a few weeks of a few months, the Coo gives me the versatility to make it worth it. I’ve utilized exceptional Joovy products before, but the Joovy Coo Portable Bassinet Playpen is new to us.
Check out these great reasons why I chose the Joovy Coo Portable Bassinet Playpen
There’s nothing better than a piece of furniture that grows with your child because we all know how quickly they grow!
Starting from birth, the bassinet will hold babies until they reach 15 pounds or until they can push up using their hands and knees. It’s practical to have bedside because it’s smaller than a crib with all the same functionality. The premium breathable fibers mattress provides maximum comfort, and the breathable mesh fabric makes it easier to keep an eye on your baby.
As if being a bassinet playpen isn’t enough, The Joovy Coo also has a rocking mode. Just flip the rocking rod on the Coo over to gently rock baby to sleep.
When you want to use it as a playpen, simply unzip the divider and transfer the mattress to the bottom. It can be used as a playpen until your child is 35”. Additionally, the Coo comes with a 2-year warranty guarantee. Since most kids reach 35” between 18 and 24 months, the Joovy Coo is protected for the entire time you will use it.
One of the favorite functions of the Joovy Coo is its portability. It’s lightweight, compact, and comes with a mattress. The entire bassinet folds around the mattress and fits into a carrying bag in just two easy steps.
When the Joovy Coo box arrived at our house, I said to Cord, “I’m going to need help putting this together.” It was so compact that I was certain it would require a lot of work and be in a lot of pieces. I opened the box, pulled off the wrapping, opened the carrying bag, and lifted up on the Coo. Just like that, it was together. We both laughed. It was that easy.
When folded, it is completely flat, which is perfect for travel or storage and it weights just 18 pounds. It is smaller than a crib but offers the same comforts because of the included mattress.
The Joovy Coo offers plenty of built-in storage while it is being used as a bassinet. It’s perfect for blankets, diapers, wipes, extra clothes, and more!
When things get messy, don’t sweat it! The Coo’s mattress cover is removable and 100% machine washable.
Choose the Coo
With such great versatility, portability, and storage space, the Joovy Coo is a great option for parents, especially if you want to share sleeping space in the beginning.
