    Default Boori vs Tasman Eco Bassinet

    Hi

    I'm looking at getting a Boori or Tasman Eco Bassinet for bub number 3.

    I'm hoping people can give me recommendations for either, and I'm particularly interested in hearing what the depth of the bassinet is for each.

    Thanks :-)

    I think theyre pretty much the same
    I have the tasman eco and love love love it.

    Very sturdy, height is great and being able to wheel it around the house is awesome

    I had a Boori bassinet for DD. I thought it was great, I kept it right next to my bed at night and during the day I could wheel it around the house so bub was never too far from me. She stayed in it for around 6 months.

    It's currently packed away so I can't actually measure the depth for you but from memory probably around 30cms.

    Thanks :-) I figured they'd be similar depth but thought whichever was deeper might last longer. Have just seen they're both on sale for $199 at Baby Bunting so will go in store to check them out instead of buying second hand (where they're $100-$150 anyway!).

    We've got a Tasman Eco basinette. It was great. Baby grew out of it after 5 months, but I don't regret buying it at all.

    Thanks for the replies I received - I ended up purchasing the Boori. I went into Baby Bunting as they were having a sale and the Tasman Eco was down to $199 from $250. The Boori was also $199 (normal price). I would have preferred the Tasman Eco brand as we have their cots, change table, etc but when I compared the two the Boori had a lot more depth in the bassinet part, it was visible immediately.

    So, assuming the more depth the longer it can accommodate bubs, I went with this one.

    I'm sure you and bub will like it

    I think they are the same size at the base, so same size for bedding? I got the little bamboo fitted sheets and bassinet cellular blankets. They are lovely - warm in winter, cool in summer. I wish I could afford them for my bed The only thing is to avoid tumble drying the sheets as I did shrink mine a bit, even on cool. I actually got a couple of sheet sets because the price was good, but I hardly used the top sheets and didn't use the pillow case at all. Maybe if he had been a summer baby I might have used the top sheet more?

    The living textiles smart dry mattress protectors were good too and were a good fit.

    Baby Bunting price match, so do an online search before you go in for the best online price and see if that's cheaper than their ticket price less the 5% discount with their rewards card. I saved heaps by price matching.
