We are so excited to announce the return of the Contours Classique 3 in 1 Bassinet. This bassinet has been a favorite item for new moms and dads. The Classique Bassinet offers classic style, convenient features, and an elegant fashion for contemporary parents. The last model of this bassinet sold out several months ago. It was demanded back by new moms and dads. We updated the fashion and the materials and we are excited to re-release this product.
We are proud of this product and we could gush about it for awhile, but we thought the best advocates are parents like you. Below are a few of the reviews of the previous model.
- Minnestoa Mamas Must Haves

This Contours Classique 3 in 1 Bassinet is a new model. We have updated the fashion, materials, and price, but it has all of the great features that these moms, and so many others, loved.
Why are bassinet pads thin? Isn’t that uncomfortable for baby?
We have often been asked this question by inquiring moms and dads. Some parents have been worried that the bassinet pad isn’t comfortable for baby so they improvise by doubling up on pads or by buying a pad that is thicker. This is not the best option for secure sleeping for baby.
Pad thickness is dictated by safety standards that are soon to become federal law. The thickness of the pad is limited to prevent suffocation hazards with young babies who are most susceptible to suffocation and SIDS. Using a thicker pad, pillow or other thick soft material greatly increases the risk of the baby dying from suffocation or SIDS. For these reasons the pad in a bassinet is the size that it is.
We recommend that you always use the pad that comes with your bassinet which has passed testing and safety standards.
We are always seeking to improve our products and we love to have parents’ feedback on different ideas. We have a a VERY short survey for you on bassinets. It’s only a few questions – promise. Please give us your honest opinion. You can take the survey here.
Thanks for your opinion and for helping us always improve our products!
Our Kolcraft Cuddle ‘n Care rocking bassinet is a loved item because it gives baby a secure, cozy sleeping environment with a comforting electronic mobile that goes from bassinet to crib! We love that this product has an extended life through the mobile and we are even more excited about the new gender-neutral fashion.
Some other features that we love:
* Mesh side windows allow increased air flow
* Easily converts to a rocking bassinet
* Mobile has soothing vibrations with variable speed control andeight classical songs and four ambient sounds with volume control
