    Default Bassinet and baby heart rate monitor help

    We are considering a bassinet second time around and we already have a heart rate monitor (with the sensor pads that go under the mattress) how do you set this up as wouldn't the cord be having to go up and out of the bassinet from under the mattress.
    With the current cot the cords can go out between the slats so it isn't a problem so I am just wondering how people set their bassinets up using a baby monitor....is there a cord escape hole?
    Thank for your help

    I have used one twice in a bassinet, I had it going out the end over the top, I then secured it so it couldn't move. Some bassinet you would,be able to cut a small slit in though

    Subbing and adding...
    Is the bassinet mattress enough to have between the pad and bub?

    I'm considering buying a snuza alarm, but if I can use the angelcare that I have I'd rather do that.

    I did this too. My bubs were only in bassinet for a few weeks and couldn't move. I only used 1 pad and wound the cord around the leg of the bassinet so tere was no slack in it.

    Most movement monitors have a sensitivity setting you can change, so yes they are fine to go under the thin bassinet mattress

    I am worried about where the cord would go. I don't feel comfortable with it coming out from underneath the mattress and back up along the sides of the bassinet and then out over the top even if it is secured. I was wanting to know if there was an area at the bottom of the bassinet that has a hole for the cords. Sorry this is quite hard to explain what I mean...
    My cot for my DS has the slats under the mattress so they can go out through that. I have only looked at bassinets online at this stage when it occurred to me there might be an issue with using the monitor..

    The bassinet I am looking at is the Cariboo Folding Bassinet

    Or the Mothers Choice Coco

    I would say both of those would need a small slit cut in the bottom. If you don't want it coming out the bottom over the top

    Thanks, I might have to go and see it in person to see if it will work. I have sent an email to Cariboo to ask them as well. Will let you know their response.

    Thanks again for your advice everyone 😃😃😃
