Welcome to the world, baby!
The first couple of months in a newborn’s life are exciting to experience as a family. It’s not just a collection of first times for baby, but also first-time moments for you as parents! Want another piece of honest advice? Having a good night’s rest is a luxury during the early months, but don’t let that scare you. At Snuggle Bugz, we have lots of gear that can help you transition into parenthood as smoothly and as restfully as possible.
You already know you need a crib, but it’s most convenient to have a bedside bassinet for those first few months with babe. You can check out our Top Bassinets to begin your research, or, keep reading as we dive in on a few things we like about the Iora Bassinet from Maxi-Cosi.
- Dimensions: 38” x 25.8” x 36”
- Bassinet Weight: 24.5 lbs
- Recommended Age: 0-5 months
- Weight: Up to 20 lbs, or until baby can push up on hands and knees
It seems like we are always talking about fashion and function. The Maxi-Cosi Iora Bassinet combines them both by providing a sleep solution for baby at the beginning of your parenthood journey. The neutral grey and natural wood tones of the Iora will make it appear to be as purposefully placed as your dresser, and bed.
We love that the Iora can blend nicely in with the aesthetic of your bedroom, but it’s also practical for babe with breathable mesh siding for airflow and visibility.
Every bed has a different height, every room has a unique layout, and Maxi-Cosi took this into consideration when designing the Iora – ensuring it can move up and down and side to side, allowing you to glide baby closer to you in the night when required. The five height settings make it easy for you to adjust the bassinet to the most comfortable height for you and your living arrangements, right beside your bed.
While there are plenty of high-quality bassinets on the market, one challenge many companies haven’t tackled is the problem of the gassy baby. When your sweet nugget is experiencing gas pain, the last thing they need is to be laid on their backs. Ouch!
Because of the height settings with the Iora Maxi Cosi Bassinet, you can actually make one end of the bassinet higher than the other to create a soothing and relieving position for your gassy babe. Now, how functional is that?
In the middle of the night when your little one needs a diaper change, the last thing you need to be doing is stumbling around in the dark trying to locate the diapers and wipes.
Enter the Iora, which features a super handy storage basket that has enough room to store everything that you, and your baby, could possibly need throughout the night! It can hold a diaper caddy, blankets, a water bottle, and a change of clothes for both of you! If you're asking us, storage is truly the key to success when it comes to products for babies and children.
Once you are done with the bassinet and your little one isn’t so little anymore, this chic little bassinet folds down completely flat for easy storage. If you’re in an apartment or a home with minimal storage, this is a HUGE win. Simply pack the bassinet away in the included travel bag for storing, or for an afternoon nap when you head over to Nana’s house.
Well, what do you think? Is the Iora “the one”?
If you love the look of the Iora Bassinet, you'll also want to consider some of the other modern looking home line options from Maxi-Cosi like the Minla Highchair, and the 2-in-1 Kori Rocker, and psssst – we've reviewed both for you in our Related Content below!
