I’m looking for a bassinet to send with my baby to the babysitter. Should preferably be easy to fold and store for daily use.
What have you used that worked well?
(I don’t want her sleeping in a doona!)

How old is baby? Bassinets have such a short shelf life. Why not just a a pack n play?

I was thinking of this, but then I would be schlepping it every day as opposed to leaving it there. Maybe I will though.

Many pack n plays come with a bassinet attachment so the crib grows with them. That is what I send. I wouldn't send a bassinet only because they grow out of them so fast. If you really want to then send the bassinet attachment with your stroller

What are you taking the baby in? You’re traveling by car?

Is it a big deal to take apart the pack n play every day? The babysitting group is not in a large house so it will need to be taken apart and put back together every day.
Regarding the stroller bassinet, I have the Fox and it’s heavy/bulky to take in and out of the car. I wouldn’t want to leave my stroller there long term bec I use it at home too

Get a pack n play with a bassinet top for little babies. You'll need the pack n play for the babysitter for the future anyway. I never let the babysitters put my son to sleep in a stroller/carseat.

The pack n play collapses very easily, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Hauck rocker crib dreamer. Sorry I don't know how to link. It's a bassinet that folds with one hand, similar to how a citymini folds.

look into the joolz aer travel stroller. I think it folds very small with the bassinet on and its very easy in and out of the car.
