Bassinets

A bassinet or cradle is a small bed designed primarily to provide sleeping accommodations for infants. A bassinet or cradle is supported by free-standing legs, a stationary frame or stand, a wheeled base, a rocking base, or that can swing relative to a stationary base. While in a rest (non-rocking or non-swinging) position, a bassinet or cradle is intended to have a sleep surface that is less than or equal to 10 degrees from horizontal.

Non-full-size cribs, full-size cribs, and toddler beds are not covered by this policy. For more information, go to Non-full-size cribs, Full-size cribs, and Toddler beds.
